When you think of Barney, Bob the Builder and Thomas the Tank Engine, enterprise software isn’t usually the first thing that comes to mind, but today Accellion announced that the company behind these widely cherished children’s entertainment brands, HIT Entertainment, has implemented a virtual, enterprise-wide deployment of Accellion Secure File Transfer.
The press release goes on to detail:
“HIT Entertainment is responsible for well-known programmes such as Bob the Builder, Thomas & Friends and Fireman Sam, and has a pressing need to protect its intellectual property when sending so many files to its offices across the world,” said James Herbert, HIT Entertainment’s Senior Manager of Global Infrastructure.
Accellion originally replaced FTP as the main method for file transfer at HIT Entertainment, a way of working that was cumbersome, not secure and led to an additional management overhead. After three years, the company was ready to commit for a longer period with Accellion. “The product is easy to run,” said Herbert, “it virtually manages itself.”
Well known brands need to protect their intellectual property in a way that’s easy-to-use for employees and easy-to-manage for IT staff. Accellion solutions can help.
