The DIRECT DLM is simple, intuitive, and transparent.
The browser developers couldn’t care any less about your software deployments. Relying on an Internet browser to securely deliver your high-value software is simply using the wrong tool for the job and is probably leaving money on the table.
The DIRECT DLM gets the browser out of the way by creating a direct channel between you and your customer, giving you unprecedented control over your software deployments beyond the firewall.
The DIRECT DLM crushes all major browsers in security, performance, and UX.
Developed from the ground up specifically to address the complexities of deploying software to systems with constraints beyond your control, the DIRECT DLM is fault-tolerant, and secure, with end-to-end analytics and a simple API that will make implementation a snap.
Give your customers the user-friendly download experience they deserve. Tailor the download experience using a developer-friendly API, and intuitive user controls.
When your customer requests a file, or series of files, from your website, DIRECT DLM returns a dynamically configured, secure download manager client specifically suited for their request.
Nothing can be more frustrating to a customer than almost finishing the download of a large file, and something goes wrong. When you rely on a browser to handle your downloads, this scenario is all too familiar.
Only the DIRECT DLM will provide your customers with the stability they need to download large files reliably and securely quickly.
- Need to pause the download and resume at a later time? You can do that.
- Lost internet connection? No problem, the download will pick up where it left off as soon as the connection is restored.
- Accidentally close the browser? No problem. The DIRECT DLM works outside of the browser as a stand-alone-executable.
