DDB Canada Selects Accellion Courier Secure File Transfer Appliance SFTA to Send Large Files without FTP Burdens

Leading advertising agency uses secure file transfer and data management solution to let users exchange large files easily without IT intervention

Singapore, Palo Alto, Calif. – Jan 10, 2007 –


Accellion, Inc. (www.accellion.com), a leading provider of on-demand secure file transfer solutions for enterprise users, is pleased to announce that DDB Canada, Canada's #1 creative agency for the past nine years, has selected Accellion Courier Secure File Transfer Appliance to enhance its large file transfer capability with clients and partners.

"We've traditionally used FTP to exchange large files with clients and partners. However, users often find FTP difficult to use. For the IT team, its administration and cleanup can take up a lot of time. The last straw is that an increasing number of clients and partners are starting to block FTP traffic for security and compliance concerns," says Stephen Hunt, National Director, Information Services, DDB Canada. "Accellion's solution lets us get around this problem effectively and easily with minimal user training and support overhead."

"Accellion SFTA has become our users' preferred platform for exchanging large files with both internal users as well as external clients and partners," adds Hunt.

"By providing the ability to exchange large files securely and quickly for non-technical users, Accellion Courier Secure File Transfer Appliance can significantly reduce the costs and complexity of this routine but critical process for advertising agencies," says Yorgen H. Edholm, president and CEO of Accellion. "Accellion has been the preferred file transfer and exchange platform for leading advertising agencies for many years."
