Palo Alto, Calif. – Aug. 22, 2006. –

 

Accellion, Inc. (www.accellion.com), a leading provider of on-demand secure file transfer and data management solutions for enterprise users, announced today that Foley & Mansfield, a national law firm with offices in Minneapolis, Detroit, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, St. Louis, and San Francisco, has deployed Accellion Courier Secure File Transfer Appliance SFTA to meet its users, counsel, and client's secure electronic file transfer needs.

"We were looking for a self contained and easy to use secure electronic file transfer solution that allows our users, other counsel, and clients to send and retrieve files that are larger than the standard email attachment size limits," said Adam Pugh, Foley & Mansfield's Director of Information Services & Technology. "Because our users, other counsel, and clients are busy people, the interface design must be intuitive so users can easily and quickly send and receive large files. Accellion's SFTA allows us to transfer files that had to be sent via CD or DVD in the past which delayed work by hours and even days. Now, we can send and receive very large files within minutes."

"Since the SFTA deployment, we have been receiving compliments from users inside and outside the firm about our enhanced secure file transfer capability for its ease of use and the time it saves," added Pugh.

"Law firms constantly need to exchange large files securely with clients. A secure file transfer solution that lawyers and clients are happy to use significantly reduces the costs and complexity of this routine process," said Yorgen H. Edholm, president and CEO of Accellion. "Accellion has extensive knowledge on meeting the secure file transfer needs of law firms with the Accellion Courier Secure File Transfer Appliance solution."
