FTP and SFTP sites are difficult for business users to use, time consuming for IT to administer, and lack the reporting and tracking capabilities necessary to demonstrate compliance.
Unlike FTP, Accellion allows users to easily and securely share files across devices, and makes on-going file and account management easy. Users can create secure workspaces for secure file sharing. IT administrators can set global policies to automatically manage file and account lifecycles, including file life cycle by transaction. LDAP and Active Directory (AD) integration, as well as single sign-on through SAML and Kerberos ensure that Accellion users are automatically validated with existing network accounts and passwords, reducing on-going IT support.
