Plugin Lets Enterprise Employees Convert Their Google Docs into Microsoft Office Files and Share Them Externally with Complete Security and Compliance

Accellion, Inc., provider of the leading governance platform for sending, receiving, and sharing encrypted information, today announced secure, compliant, and convenient information sharing for enterprises using Google Drive.

With Accellion, enterprise G Suite users send, receive, and share confidential files externally with complete compliance and authentication. Accellion lets organizations control all external file exchanges through a single governance platform, no matter what the data source, to mitigate the risk of a data leak or access by unauthenticated users.

As part of the Google Cloud Technology Partner Program, the Accellion plugin for Google Drive lets security-first organizations:

  • Send confidential documents externally via secure folders and secure email
  • Centralize external sharing governance to ensure sensitive files stay private
  • Automatically convert shared Google Docs to Microsoft Office files and vice versa
  • Share Google Docs using their corporate authentication with recipients’ business email accounts outside the organization
  • Consolidate compliance reporting and use log data to create real-time visualizations into integrated SIEM products

Accellion also enables enterprise G Suite users to convert their shared Google Docs to Microsoft files to enhance collaboration with external partners. Accellion allows G Suite users to bridge their corporate Google world with the corporate Microsoft world while keeping their confidential documents secure and collaboration compliant. G Suite users now have the best of both worlds: collaborative cloud editing internally and compliant, industry-standard Office file sharing externally.

“With Accellion, G Suite users have a single governance platform that reduces the risk of inadvertently exposing sensitive information,” said Yaron Galant, chief product officer with Accellion. “It’s now very simple for G Suite users to securely share Google Docs containing sensitive data outside of their organization through systems like Microsoft, Salesforce, and Oracle.”
