Palo Alto, Calif. – Jan. 26, 2006 –


To coincide with IBM's annual Lotusphere conference in Orlando, FL, Accellion, Inc., an award-winning provider of on-demand secure file transfer appliance and data management solutions, announced today that its Courier Secure File Transfer Appliance (SFTA) provides an integrated plug-in that supports Lotus Note users and administrators. Accellion's unique, user-friendly file transfer appliance allows enterprise users that rely on IBM's Lotus Notes to quickly and securely transfer files without replicating the same files for all the recipients, relieving administrators of infrastructure burden headaches.

"We are pleased to announce Courier FTA's support for Lotus Notes during the 2006 IBM Lotusphere conference," said Yorgen Edholm, CEO and President of Accellion, Inc. "The ease of use and proliferation of the Lotus Notes in today's business world has fueled demand for a secure and user-friendly method of file transfer that does not hinder email performance for end users and avoids email server burden headaches for administrators.
