IBM® Aspera® Files helps to enable fast, easy, and secure exchange of files and folders of any size between users, even across separate organizations. Aspera Files is currently available in three all-inclusive editions of Personal, Business, and Enterprise. Clients can subscribe either to a committed amount of data transferred on a monthly or annual basis or as a pay-per-use option.

In addition to the existing charge metric of data transferred, a user subscription metric is now included for all four editions. Each edition comes with an included number of authorized users in addition to other key features and capabilities.

Personal edition now includes 20 authorized users and a single workspace. Business edition now includes 100 authorized users, 100 workspaces, support for IBM Aspera Drive, support for IBM Mobile applications, and support for Single-Sign-On. Enterprise edition now includes 500 authorized users, no limit on number of workspaces, support for IBM Aspera Drive, support for IBM Mobile applications, and support for Single-Sign-On. New Elite edition includes 2500 authorized users, no limit on number of workspaces, support for IBM Aspera Drive, support for IBM Mobile applications, support for Single-Sign-On, and access to IBM Aspera Developer Network and nonproduction organization.

Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a lawful, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
