Accellion Powers Ahead with Secure, Large File Delivery For Corporate Users

Corporate Customers Eliminate FTP Servers and Add Authentication and Security, Sending Large Files With Accellion File Transfer Appliances

Palo Alto, Calif. – Apr 4, 2005 –

Accellion, Inc., a pioneer in secure file transfer and attachment offload solutions, announces new customers and installations: Knowles Electronics, LLC, the world leader in hearing instrument components; Eastern Suffolk BOCES, an educational cooperative of 51 school districts in New York State; Pegasystems Inc., a leader in the business process management (BPM) industry; and GTN Inc., a global production, post production, and new media company. This marks Accellion's growing momentum with sales across industries.

"Responding to market demand, we have introduced a suite of Courier appliances to send files securely," said Yorgen Edholm, Accellion president and CEO. "The increasing customer demand across industries validates Accellion's vision of file transfer appliances as the preferred alternative to existing cumbersome and unsecured solutions such as FTP and e-mail."

"The Accellion Courier appliance provides a complete security loop for sending large documents to our partners and customers around the world," said Rich Dase, Director of Technology of Knowles Electronics. "With the ability to work in parallel with our e-mail infrastructure and its built-in policy-based file life-cycle management tools, we are in the process of rolling out the solution to the entire company."

File transfers have become a burning issue for IT professionals and users alike. The prevalence of large files (>10MB) has spread beyond the specialty users exchanging video and audio files, engineering documents, manufacturing specifications, medical diagnostics, lab results, to the daily business user, sending marketing and sales presentations or high resolution graphics and photos. With this growth, e-mail and FTP are no longer sufficient for ad hoc and instantaneous file transfer across organizational and geographic boundaries nor do these methods meet Sarbanes-Oxley and other regulatory mandates. File transfer using Accellion Courier appliances is fast becoming a preferred method across industries.
