JULY 2014 PRODUCT UPDATE

This summer, Aspera's comprehensive product line has seen a number of improvements and new features. The latest release of Aspera Enterprise Server and Connect Server version 3.4.6 is now available on Solaris and Isilon OneFS, as well as Windows, Linux and OS X. On Solaris and Isilon platforms, this release adds new security and audit features including expanded SSH ciphers, full encryption and encryption-at-rest support in HTTP fallback mode, new file checksum reporting, and authentication via Aspera Shares users.

The release ships with Aspera Sync 1.5 (enabled with an additional license), as well as a new REST API supporting transfer between Aspera nodes and drag-and-drop transfer in Aspera Shares. Cloud enhancements include support for up to 60 concurrent sessions per virtual instance, and configurable chunk size for cloud object storage I/O up to 512MB. New versions of Aspera Shares, faspex, Console, Cargo, and Connect are also shipping and available for download. Download here
