Fully online and flexible

Aspera SmartTrack is a flexible, fully web-based solution. The platform is easy to start and always secure, with fast deployment and self-service. SmartTrack can be easily installed on-premises or hosted at the Aspera data center.

SmartTrack operates through your local browser, with no installation required for the user, while providing complete security and access control. The platform is optimized for current browser versions, but still fully compatible with many legacy browsers used in enterprise environments. Log on and be happy.

Host on-premises or in cloud

Choose the SmartTrack hosting plan that fits your needs, whether it’s deployed on your servers or hosted by ours. You can start small and upgrade later, choose to license or rent, and change your hosting choice after deployment.

The SmartTrack platform handles complex requirements and your connectivity needs. Its features include database connectivity and API connectors to other cloud providers. With site-to-site VPN integration, all hosted solutions can facilitate data exchange with your network as if they were hosted on-premises.

Security is a top priority

That’s why our data center meets the security requirements of large corporation. It has full redundancy and an extensive monitoring system that watches over your data. Operations conform to the latest ITIL standards.

Your SmartTrack application is deployed on dedicated, siloed hardware. Security measures include hardened operating systems, a locked down infrastructure, static code analysis, SAML-based Single Sign-On (SSO), and third-party penetration tests.

Our security is tested yearly, both internally as well as by our largest customers. In the unlikely event of a service interruption, we have tested disaster-recovery plans in place to quickly return you to normal operations.

Powerful data import & export

SmartTrack has flexible import and export features. The platform can work with live or segregated data, to follow your internal policies that may limit the access of external vendors.

Data import. SmartTrack includes a powerful scriptable Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) workflow engine for importing data from various sources and systems, including databases and web service APIs. The import scales easily to large volumes of data.

Data export. There are many flexible export options in SmartTrack, including CSV, XLS, and Web Services. These formats can be automated.

ServiceNow process integration

SmartTrack and ServiceNow enhance each other, like cookies and milk. That’s why SmartTrack ships with a built-in data connector for ServiceNow.

SmartTrack can import ServiceNow data — including CMDB, software usage, user, cost center and location data — and quickly use that information to improve its license compliance reporting. The ServiceNow environment is also enriched as data quality and overall transparency are increased for ITAM and CMDB systems.

SmartTrack doesn’t replace ServiceNow — it adds the missing full-featured license management piece. Our integration has been certified by ServiceNow for interoperability, security, performance, and best practices in design and implementation.
