Top 10 Reasons to Love Aspera
- It's Free. Shall I go on? Yes...
- Fast. The high speed transfer is the best way to upload assets and the only way to upload entire folders into GLOBALedit.
- Security you can trust. Rest better knowing Aspera has a high level security protocol. Aspera provides complete built-in security without compromising transfer speed. With conventional file transfer protocols, security, monitoring, and logging are deferred to external systems.
- No specialized hardware is required for implementation. It's one simple lightweight download.
- It will automatically resume partial or failed transfers.
- Efficiency for transferring large set of small files. *For Example, a photographer in New Zealand can send one thousand 2MB files to a retoucher in NY with an effective transfer speed of 155 Mbps.
- Aspera finds and fills all unclaimed bandwidth to provide stable and perfectly efficient transfer.
- The largest enterprise level companies, studios, media outlets, telecommunication operators, sports leagues and government agencies rely on Aspera to transport their highly valuable digital assets. Some move excess of one terabyte per day!
- Transfer is independent of network delays.
