Millward Brown Selects Accellion Courier SFTA as Alternative to Email File Transfer

Market Research Leader Implements FTA Solution in US and UK Offices with Plans for Future Global Rollout

Palo Alto, Calif. – Jan. 17, 2006 –


Accellion, Inc., an award-winning provider of on-demand secure file transfer appliance and data management solutions, announced today it has been selected to provide its Accellion Courier Secure File Transfer Appliance to global market research leader Millward Brown.

Millward Brown has implemented Accellion's Courier FTA in its Naperville, IL, and Warwick, UK, offices, and has plans to expand the use of Accellion's FTA across its worldwide offices.

"Email was the preferred file transfer method for most of our employees because it is familiar and easy to use," said Kean Millward, CTO of Millward Brown. "Accellion's Courier FTA works just like email but removes the large file burden from our email servers. With Accellion Courier FTA, we were able to impose an email attachment limit and our users have quickly adopted the FTA in their day-to-day activities. We are very happy with the Accellion Courier FTA."

Accellion's Courier FTA allows users to transfer information by offloading files from email and FTP servers onto the Accellion secure file transfer appliance. File transfer recipients receive a link from the sender, through which they can access the file without putting strain on the IT resources of their organization. In addition, recipients can return information and files to the sender through the same infrastructure, allowing external partners to send back information quickly without placing unnecessary burdens.

"Accellion Courier FTA has been designed specifically for use in environments such as Millward Brown's - data-heavy industries that need to exchange large files with clients and business partners across the globe," said Yorgen Edholm, President and CEO of Accellion, Inc. "We are pleased to provide Millward Brown with the right solution."
