Microsoft SharePoint Users Select Accellion to Securely Share Large Files

Accellion to Demo SharePoint Plug-In at SPTechCon 2011

Palo Alto, CA – February 2, 2011 –

Quick and easy access to information is essential for business collaboration.  To enable users to securely and easily send files to co-workers, customers, and partners from within their Microsoft SharePoint application enterprises are deploying the Accellion SharePoint Plug-in. 

Accellion will demonstrate the Accellion SharePoint Plug-in at the SharePoint Technology Conference (SPTechCon) in Burlingame, CA February 8-9 at booth #907.  

The Accellion SharePoint Plug-in enhances the communication and collaboration experience provided within Microsoft SharePoint by seamlessly adding secure file transfer capability to SharePoint’s native file transfer capability.  With Accellion secure file transfer, enterprises are protecting their intellectual property and achieving compliance while providing users with an easily accessible way to share confidential digital information.

"The Accellion SharePoint Plug-in has allowed us to send files more efficiently and securely.  Instead of having all of our files in multiple locations (network shares); we now have a single location and a very effective way of sending them to our clients," said Nick Owens, network engineer for Thomson Reuters.

The Accellion Secure File Transfer solution allows enterprises and government agencies to securely send and receive large files and folders.  Encryption and business-level authentication validates recipients so confidential information is not overexposed.  Accellion Secure File Transfer also provides an audit trail with the tracking and reporting necessary to demonstrate compliance.  The Accellion SharePoint Plug-in can be deployed seamlessly across public and private cloud and virtual environments.
