It’s back to school time. As I read through the stack of back to school forms, looking for the dotted lines for the parent signature, my eyes stopped abruptly at the sentence “flash drive strongly recommended”. Nooooooo – this is where it all begins. Innocent young minds being corrupted with the idea that transferring files on a flash drive is a good idea.
Faculty, students and staff need to be able to easily collaborate, exchange ideas, and share data including student records, faculty and staff employee information, academic work and research data. However FaceBook, MySpace, IM, P2P and USB sticks are not the answer for secure file transfer.
We’ve had an educational initiative program at Accellion for a number of years that provides free student licenses to any educational institution that purchases licenses for all its faculty and staff. Harvard, Stanford, UC Berkeley (Go Bears), University of Chicago, University of Tennesse, Pepperdine, Texas A&M, Kent State, University of Colorado are just a few of the universities using Accellion secure file transfer.
It’s never too early or too late to learn how to send files securely. No matter whether your users are students or employees, Accellion wants everyone to get an A grade for file transfer security so we are offering an Accellion Back to School promotion for purchases made before September 30,2010. Contact Accellion sales at email@example.com or 650 739 0095 before September 15, 2010 for details.
