Accellion addresses both needs very well.”
 
“Legal firms are one of the fastest growing market segments for Accellion,” said Paula Skokowski, Chief Marketing Officer at Accellion. “While growth in usage of mobile devices is driving demand for secure file sharing solutions across industries, legal firms along with organizations in regulated industries, are becoming increasingly aware of the need to protect confidential information access and sharing on mobile devices.”
