Palo Alto, Calif. – Nov 7, 2006 –


Accellion, Inc. (, a leading provider of on-demand secure file transfer and data management solutions for enterprise users, announced today that Bigge, a diversified equipment and project services company providing solutions and equipment for heavy lift, heavy transport and other customer needs in the commercial, government and industrial markets including the power generation and petroleum refinery sectors, has selected Accellion to help meet its secure large file transfer needs.

"When we are working on a collaborative project, an email attachment could potentially reach 600MB, but most mailbox size restriction policies don't accommodate that. Receiving constant 'mailbox full' messages from a recipient email server can be a headache for us and our customers," said Ed Wanat, IT Director at Bigge. "Accellion's solution lets us get around this problem very effectively and easily while maintaining the email paradigm our people are accustomed to."

"With the excellent usability, we were able to roll out the Accellion solution to users with minimal training or support overhead," added Wanat.

"By providing the ability to exchange large files securely and quickly to business users, Accellion Courier Secure File Transfer Appliance can significantly reduce the costs and complexity of this routine but critical process for professional service firms," said Yorgen H. Edholm, president and CEO of Accellion. "Accellion has extensive experience on meeting the secure file transfer needs of engineering and professional service companies in the architecture engineering, and construction (AEC) industry."
