High Speed File Transfer
FileSociety™ integrates Aspera’s™Fasp™ technology to deliver files up to 100 times
faster than FTP. Fasp™ uses automatic adaptive rate control to eliminate latency
to fully utilize available bandwidth while maintaining balanced traffic to other
users. FileSociety™ works with any web connection and popular browsers and does
not require any special hardware, management or IT investment.
User and Group Management
Unlike FTP, FileSociety™ gives you complete control of who has access to your files
and tracks all file transfer activity. Each account contains up to 1000 users and
you can easily create users and groups to organize, connect and manage your workflow
and teams. Control upload and download permissions to provide users or groups access
to library content at any level from individual files to project folders. Users only
see the files and folders you give them access to and you can deactivate, reactivate
or delete users and groups at any time.
Create and manage a dynamic online file library with the capability to view, search
and rename files and folders. You can sort by file name, size, upload date,
tags or by users and groups.
Automatically send email notifications of transfer activity to yourself and anyone
on your user list. Notifications let you and your teams know when your file transfers
are complete and provides a transfer report detailing file names, file sizes and
FileSociety™ utilizes SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) that is a cryptographic protocol
that provides security and data integrity for network communications. SSL is a standard
endorsed by major credit card companies and leading financial institutions for commerce
over the Internet.
Massive Productivity Gains
FileSociety™ is a game-changing technology designed for people and organizations
that depend on sharing and distributing files. With speed gains of up to 100x, your
team’s productivity skyrockets. Everything about FileSociety™ is designed to save
time and energy, promote collaboration, automate tasks and maximize security. Instead
of wasting time with slow, unreliable FTP transfers and managing disc production
and shipping, you can focus on more productive tasks.
- FileSociety™ lets you distribute files in minutes instead of hours or days, slashing
production times and eliminating bottlenecks. Distributing files to hundreds of
users is as easy and as fast as sending to one user.
- Enables large data set transfers over any network at maximum speed regardless of
network conditions or distance so you can effectively work with your international
colleagues and partners across the globe.
- FileSociety’s™ easy-to-use interface was designed by a multi-industry group of demanding
users to provide powerful workflow tools that work the way you do.
- Automatic notifications keep your workgroups informed of transfer activity so everyone
knows when files are available without any wasted effort or miscommunication. Users
get peace of mind knowing that files are delivered instead of stressing about the
risk of FTP failure or corruption, courier cut off times and shipping status.
- FileSociety™ eliminates the human error of manual disc production, organization
and distribution. Gone are the days of missing a deadline due to sending the wrong
disc, data entry error or shipping problems. With FileSociety™, you can transfer
a DVD’s worth of data faster than it takes to burn a DVD.
FileSociety™ pays for itself through cost eliminations and increased productivity.
- By implementing FileSociety™ you can eliminate charges for file downloads to disc/hard
drive and the onsite physical manufacture of CDs and DVDs - the expenses incurred
with messengers, couriers and shipping around the world – labor costs for preparing
discs, packing, arranging and tracking shipping and for babysitting long and unreliable
FTP file transfers.
- FileSociety’s™ speed and reliability can save considerable travel related costs
by eliminating the need for hand delivery of time sensitive files to domestic and
international locations by internal staff or expensive same-day courier services.
- Standard pricing includes a nominal yearly account fee, a low 1¢ per MB transfer
rate and variable monthly rates for storage. FileSociety™ offers Enterprise and
Studio packages and high-volume discounting for qualified accounts.
FileSociety™ with Fasp built-in solves the inefficiencies and bottlenecks of FTP
by eliminating latency that causes most transfer failures.
- FileSociety™ further increases reliability by automatically resuming partial transfers
and retrying failed transfers.
- Large sets of files are transferred with the same efficiency as large single files
which allows you to transfer folders and all of their contents as easily as one
file. There is no longer a need to waste time compressing files or saving folders
of files into .zip or .sit files for transfer.
- With FileSociety’s™ notifications feature, you know right away when your files are
successfully transferred or in rare cases, if there is a failure.
FileSociety™ is a completely green process that can make a significant impact on
reducing carbon emissions and the use of wasteful petroleum products and pollution
by eliminating air and ground shipping, plastic and magnetic media used in distributing
billions of files. FileSociety™ fully offsets its carbon footprint and is proud
to support the Carbonfund.org and StopGlobalWarming.org.
