Accellion Introduces Information Archiving Solution for Large File Transfers

Integrates Managed File Transfer with E-mail Archiving Systems for Enhanced Business Record Retention

October 27, 2009 –

Palo Alto, California – October 27, 2009 — Protection and retention of electronic business records is essential in the event of corporate litigation. While business-critical e-mails and e-mail attachments are often retained with e-mail archival systems, files too large to send as e-mail attachments typically bypass the archiving systems. The Accellion Archival Satellite extends Accellion file transfer to enable archiving of Accellion file transfers to corporate e-mail Archival Systems to comply with business record retention policies.

“With the majority of corporate e-mail policies restricting file sizes to 10 MB, many business-critical documents are being transferred outside of the e-mail system and are bypassing the e-mail archival system and policies,” said Yorgen Edholm, president and CEO of Accellion. “The Accellion Archival Satellite fills a market void, making it easier for companies to quickly and securely transfer large files while protecting their intellectual property and ensuring business record retention.”

The Accellion Archival Satellite continuously monitors Accellion file transfers to determine which file transfers meet the criteria for archiving. All Accellion file transfers subject to corporate archival policy are captured and replicated to an Archival Satellite.  The Accellion Archival Satellite is responsible for delivering a copy of the original e-mail with file attachments to the Archival Mail Server.

Using Accellion, corporations and government agencies are able to secure and protect the transfer of intellectual property and sensitive information subject to industry and government compliance regulations. The Accellion Archival Satellite extends protection and archiving of business records to include Accellion file transfer.
