Signiant App

Download the Signiant App

In order to offer extended browser functionality for both Macs and Windows, Signiant launched the Signiant App in December of 2015. The Signiant Transfer API (TAPI) is a Javascript API that provides accelerated file transfer within all web applications. Version 1 of the Signiant TAPI used the NPAPI, but since Microsoft announced that they would end all support of NPAPI by the end of 2016, version 2 uses no dependency on the NPAPI or proprietary plug-in interfaces like the Chrome PPAPI.

The elimination of NPAPI support in Chrome, Firefox and Edge was a catalyst for us to rethink how the product interacts with all web browsers. Today users will continue to use the plug-in with IE and Safari to transfer files. However, as other browsers like Safari discontinue NPAPI support, the Signiant App will replace the plug-in for those browsers as well.

Signiant will continue to update the Signiant App to offer the best accelerated file transfer to our customers.
