Default SRC?

Um, that was supposed to be "SRC", not "Src" in the subject.... Supposedly stands for "Send/Receive Client". Anybody know about software like this? It sounds a bit similar to FTP but am wondering what the differences are and whether we want this on our computers. One of our large corporate clients has developed their own version of this software for transfer of large files to and fro. Here's the [names edited to protect the innocent] blurb:

"SRC ("Send/Receive Client") is a new tool for accessing the XXX AssetDelivery service.

This simple, downloadable application extends the full power of the XXX AssetDelivery service all the way to your PC or
Mac desktop. You can now send and receive your largest digital assets
directly from your Internet connected desktop or laptop computer."

At the moment this is all the info I have and I'm reluctant to download it willy-nilly without knowing a bit more. There may be a readme somewhere, but the link goes directly to a download.

Oh, and what's with using the word "assets" for "files"?? Is this normal or just XXX corporate babble?
