Introducing FileCatalyst TransferAgent
Posted by John Tkaczewski on 19 September 2014 01:22 PM

Accelerated and web based file transfer without the need to use a Java applet, nor any other browser plug-in, is here!

FileCatalyst TransferAgent offers a new way to leverage FileCatalyst technology from within a browser, allowing files to be sent at top speeds securely and reliably without the need to install Java in the web browser!

TransferAgent combines a desktop application (the "agent" itself) with an HTML5 interface that allows browsing local or remote file listings, selecting files for transfer, and initiating transfer without the use of browser plugins nor Java Applets. Once a transfer is under way, progress updates are published to the web browser; however, the browser window or the tab can be closed at any time and the transfer will continue.

Key features and benefits:

  • Web based large file transfers without the need to install the Java Plugin nor any other web browser plug-in
  • Quick and simple end user install that is automatically initiated from the web page, and doesn't require a browser plug-in
  • Ability to send virtually any file sizes in a web browser, including files larger then 2GB
  • Ability to configure TransferAgent for uploads, downloads with remote file browsing, and downloads via a single button
  • Web browser window can be closed once the file transfer has been initiated
  • Ability to upload/download entire folder structures from the web
  • Built-in: MD5 check-sum, auto-zip, auto-resume, auto-retry, incremental transfers (rsync), sending of growth files, and email notifications
  • High grade security using SSL, AES, PGP encryption of connection parameters in the JavaScript and user driven permissions
  • Simple yet extremely flexible deployment based on static HTML5 pages (no server side web technology required)
  • Support for both Mac OS X and Windows in all recent web browsers (e.g. Chrome, Safari, Firefox)

FileCatalyst TransferAgent is currently bundled with the FileCatalyst Direct Unlimited Package as well as with any other FileCatalyst Direct offering with the web applets add-on. In the near future the TransferAgent will also be added to our FileCatalyst Workflow and Webmail products.
