Aspera Fast and Secure Protocol (FASP) integration is an alternative Ringtail file management upload option. When in use, case administrators can select data from a local source and upload it to the appropriate ingest or import path for the case. Use Aspera as a faster option for uploading and staging the data to the correct location.
To use Aspera, users must have administrator rights on their computers and install the Aspera Connect browser plug-in. For more information, see Upload files.
Only system administrators can change these values. Use the following procedure to set up an integration on the Aspera Connect Server page.
