Feature spotlights

Versatile, easy-to-use

Available at no charge, the IBM® Aspera® Connect app self-installs and starts quickly and automatically to initiate high-speed uploads and downloads when using Aspera High-Speed Transfer Server and other web applications and clients. It provides automatic language selection based on the operating system language setting. The app runs independent of the browser to provide precise visual transfer rate monitoring and control.

Precise bandwidth control

Adjusts bandwidth use with adaptive rate control to prioritize transfers while reserving bandwidth for business-critical network traffic. The easy-to-use interface provides real-time status of transfer progress and transfer rate, allowing users to adjust transfer rates on the fly and cancel/pause/resume queued transfers. Users can switch to slower HTTP-based transfers for highly restrictive network environments.

Unrivaled Aspera performance

The Aspera Connect app delivers large files and whole directories quickly, regardless of file size, transfer distance or network conditions. It remains fair to other business-critical network traffic while maximizing allocated bandwidth. It offers automatic, fast and lossless inline compression to reduce data set transfer sizes and further boost industry leading transfer performance.

Built-in security

It uses SSH authentication to establish secure connections between the app and the transfer server. It provides the user with in-transit and at-rest encryption of files and folders with a standard based on Advanced Encryption Standard 128.
