A few weeks ago I took my daughter to San Francisco to do a zip line through San Francisco’s Embarcadero Square. It was quite thrilling to say the least! Not sure how this is related to Accellion, but it got me thinking about the problem I had at work the other day when I needed to send a number of files to a client. Having a developer background, my first instinct was to use Cygwin and zip the files beforehand and then try to sneak it through our mail server. But then I remembered that the very product I work with everyday already does that for me for free… AND …I don’t have to worry about getting it around my mail server. Accellion Secure File Transfer allows you to choose a folder’s worth of data. The files are automatically zipped, sent securely through an SSL tunnel, then an email is delivered to the recipient with a link to download. When the recipient clicks on this link, the zip file is downloaded and automatically unzipped onto your desktop. No mess, no hassle, and I can sleep at night knowing my files are safe. Accellion makes file transfer as zippy as my ride across Embarcadero Square!
