Palo Alto, California – September 14, 2009 — To help companies secure the transfer of documents from multifunction printers/scanners/copiers and business applications, Accellion, Inc. today announced the SMTP Satellite. The SMTP Satellite works in conjunction with Accellion’s Managed File Transfer appliance and extends file tracking, reporting and encryption to files originating from scanners and business applications. By offloading the delivery of large scanned documents and reports from email, the SMTP Satellite improves email performance and reduces email storage requirements while preventing data leaks.

Non-secure transfer of scanned documents and business reports containing intellectual property and confidential personal information can quickly become a security issue. Using the SMTP Satellite in conjunction with Accellion Managed File Transfer provides business users the ability to easily and securely transfer large scanned documents and confidential reports without clogging up email. Each document is tracked and secured during transit enabling compliance with SOX, HIPAA, FDA and GLB regulations.

“The Accellion SMTP Satellite enables corporations to increase information security and compliance within their organizations,” said Yorgen Edholm, president and CEO of Accellion. “Organizations need to be able to share confidential information and have in place safeguards for securing and tracking the flow of intellectual property and confidential personal data. Extending the functionality of Accellion Managed File Transfer to document scanners and business reporting offers corporations and government agencies the opportunity to further streamline business processes and increase security.”

The Accellion SMTP Satellite is available in either virtual or hardware appliance form factors. One SMTP Satellite can service multiple (10-25) document scanners.
