Industry response to the Accellion Partners Program has been strong, with a number of new partners signing agreements with Accellion. "Accellion provides a valuable solution that compliments our offerings, and has worked with us to penetrate and install the Courier SFTA solution in several petrochemical companies," said R.J. Dobbins, Strategic Account Manager of Secure Data Solutions, Inc.

"Accellion has structured its sales approach to support its partners instead of competing against them," said Jeff Laurinaitis, VP Business Development of RKON Technologies. "Their approach allows us to focus on closing important sales opportunities, including several successful installations in the legal and media research space."

"We want to be a 100% channel model as soon as we can and are actively recruiting new partners, particularly those with experience in email and security," said David Cain, Vice President of Sales for Accellion, Inc.
