The Budget-Friendly MFT Aspera Alternative

UDP Transfer Acceleration Without The Hefty Price Tag

Aspera alternative to share files using any platform

Aspera is an established name when it comes to Managed File Transfer software. Because Aspera is owned by IBM, it comes as no surprise to learn that it is a complicated piece of software, that takes time to configure and train people to use. It also brings a hefty price with it.

As an Aspera alternative, we are easier to get up and running, and easier on your wallet. There are some similarities between us and Aspera such as using UDP as the underlying technology to enable high speed transfers for big files, and cloud storage, but there are many criteria in which there are notable differences.

For a start we offer a free trial where you can easily jump in and send files straight away. If you send small files, then you may well not need our desktop based solution, so you can use our web tranfser solution based on TCP.
