IBM Aspera platform adds features and capabilities to Faspex application for improved performanceIBM Latin America Software Announcement LP19-0270
August 27, 2019
|Table of contents|
IBM® Aspera® transfer platform is an advanced software solution for file transfer, synchronization, and streaming of digital assets, enabling secure, high-speed movement of data, regardless of distance or network condition.
Part of the IBM Aspera solution portfolio of data transfer solutions, IBM Aspera Faspex Application is a web-based application that provides an intuitive, efficient way for individuals and groups to collaborate and exchange files and directories of any size, over any distance. Version 4.3 is currently available for selected levels of Microsoft Windows and Linux®, and has the following enhanced features:
- Improved out-of-transfer file validation (OTFV) capabilities. OTFV enables post-transfer processing to begin immediately after a file transfer and parallel to file validation by reporting the file's status as "validating," and then "complete" after the validation process concludes.
- New capability to enable sender-based quotas that limit certain users from exceeding a defined amount of data transferred over a specified period of time, helping to avoid data leaks from untrusted senders.
- Enhanced Faspex API capabilities. These enhancements fix broken API endpoints, improve endpoint accessibility, and update documentation.

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.
Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
