GigaOm’s Take on an Antidote for Un-Secure File Sharing

I’m a certified news junkie. I read at least half a dozen online publications every day and one of my favorite sites is GigaOM, in particular their WebWorkerDaily articles.

Accellion Celebrates 1000th Customer Win

We’re growing by leaps and bounds here at Accellion. We had a breakout 2010 and the momentum continues today.   Since the beginning of the year we’ve barely had time to catch our breath.

Regardless of who, or what ultimately wins, it's a thought provoking experiment and spectacle.
