Aspera Inc., creator of next-generation, high-speed file transfer technologies, today announced that the company's Enterprise Server product was named the winner in the Best in Bandwidth Optimization category by the Network Product Guide's 2008 Best Products and Services Reader Trust Awards. This annual award honors products and services that represent the rapidly changing needs and interests of the end-users of technology worldwide.

"Increased end-user awareness and ongoing advances in technology are helping shape better products and services," said Rake Narang, editor-in-chief, Network Products Guide. "Aspera's Enterprise Server, built on Aspera's fasp transport technology, provides maximum file transfer speed and scalable performance that supports both individual high-bandwidth transfers, as well as many concurrent transfers at broadband speeds. The software's ability to transfer massive data sets with full bandwidth utilization, independent of client-server network distance, while maintaining bandwidth fairness to other network traffic, is one of the reasons Enterprise Server was selected for Best in Bandwidth Optimization."

Aspera's Enterprise Server is a universal file transfer server combining high-speed, secure transport with exceptional transfer management features for enterprise and consumer-scale applications. All common transfer models, such as upload, download, and automatic push and pull distribution, and all Aspera client applications are supported. At the core of all Aspera software, the company's innovative fasp transfer protocol eliminates the fundamental bottlenecks of conventional file transfer technologies such as FTP, HTTP, and Windows CIFS, and dramatically speeds transfers over public and private IP networks.

"These awards are given to the best technology products every year, and we are honored that Enterprise Server has been selected by the Network Products Guide as the Best in Bandwidth Optimization," said Michelle Munson, president and co-founder of Aspera. "We are committed to meeting our customers' ever-growing data transfer needs by providing state-of-the-art transport software and world-class service."
