Get Started

The Usual Challenges

In today's fast changing IT and media landscape, we increasingly rely on data transfers as part of our daily operations. You most likely know that you should be using a secure, fast and efficient solution, but keep coming across the usual barriers.

Time constraints

Investigating commercial solutions requires engaging in a time consuming trial process involving sales people from the beginning.

Budget constraints

Considering the significant upfront investment required for commercial solutions, makes a replacement difficult to justify.

Multiple Server Connections

Connect to multiple Windows, OSX and Linux servers at a time.

Resume Transfers

Pick up where you left off if your connection is interrupted.

Bandwidth Control

Prioritise your most important transfers and throttle your background tasks.

Catapult versus FTP

Catapult's fast transfer protocol is able to saturate internet and private networks far more efficiently than FTP. Employing our unique Catapult protocol, long data transfer times belong to the past.

Built-in bandwidth management provides precise on-the-fly control of WAN utilisation, allowing for dynamic adjustment of in-progress transfers. Integrated and simple to use management and detailed transfer reporting makes Catapult the ideal solution.
