Accellion Launches Secure File Transfer Forum on Ning Social Networking Platform

Online Forum offers Opportunity to Share File Transfer Best Practices

Palo Alto, California – October 15, 2008 –


Accellion, Inc. ( a leading provider of managed file transfer solutions for enterprise users, today announced the launch of the Accellion Secure File Transfer Forum hosted on the Ning social networking platform. Through this forum, companies using the Accellion secure file transfer solution are able to share best practices, exchange ideas, ask questions, and shape the future direction of enterprise secure file transfer.

The explosion of digital data is changing the way companies do business, offering opportunities for greater efficiency and cost savings. Yet the digitization of business has become an obstacle for organizations lacking a secure means to transfer the increasing volume of digital files. A continued rise in data breaches, and an uncertain economic climate and a growing concern for the environment has greatly elevated the need and desire for an IT solution for securely moving large quantities of digital files at Internet speed rather than relying on shipping CDs via overnight envelopes.

Accellion is taking an industry lead in providing enterprise solutions for secure file transfer. The launch of the Accellion Secure File Transfer Forum is an important step in providing a collaborative forum for establishing best practices for enterprise secure file transfer.

"We have always valued input from our customers and have incorporated many technical suggestions into the Accellion solution, making it unmatched in the industry," said Mr. Jhingan. "Leveraging the Ning technology enables us to further enhance collaboration and networking with our rapidly growing customer base."

The Accellion Secure File Transfer Forum is hosted on Ning, a Web 2.0 social networking platform. Entry to the Forum is by invitation only and is limited to Accellion customers.
