Accellion Back to School Program Helps Academic Institutions Get an "A" on File Transfer Security

September 1, 2010 –

Palo Alto, CA – Sept. 1, 2010  Accellion, Inc. today extended its educational program to include a Back to School Program to help academic institutions ensure information sent electronically, by faculty, staff and students, remains secure. 

Faculty, students and staff rely on electronic communication as a way to quickly collaborate on ideas and exchange data.  For many, FaceBook, MySpace, Instant Messaging, P2P and USB sticks are the default file transfer methods.  When using these insecure methods to transfer confidential information, including student and employee personal information, research data and academic work, academic institutions are placing themselves at risk for a security breach.

To help academic institutions ensure confidential information shared electronically remains safe, 
Accellion is extending its current educational program that provides free student licenses to any educational institution that purchases licenses for all its faculty and staff.  The Accellion Back to School program offers additional discounts and is valid for purchases made before September 30, 2010.  For details on pricing, please contact Accellion at or 650 739 0095 before September 15, 2010.
