Among these new customers are regional financial services firms in the US and Asia, a defense industry leader, a major children's hospital, a Department of Transportation office in the southeast, global consumer goods companies, and market research companies such as Millward Brown. The new customers have allowed Accellion to more than double its revenue booking in the fourth-quarter when compared to third-quarter bookings.

"Accellion's continued financial and business success allows the company to support aggressive growth through new business opportunities."
