Patch Released in 72 Hours with Minimal Impact

Accellion, Inc., provider of the industry’s first enterprise content firewall, today issued a statement about a recently reported security incident regarding one of its legacy products.

In mid-December, Accellion was made aware of a P0 vulnerability in its legacy File Transfer Appliance (FTA) software. Accellion FTA is a 20 year old product that specializes in large file transfers.

Accellion resolved the vulnerability and released a patch within 72 hours to the less than 50 customers affected.

Accellion’s flagship enterprise content firewall platform, kiteworks, was not involved in any way. The kiteworks product has never reported an external P0 vulnerability during its four years in the marketplace. The Accellion enterprise content firewall deploys the most advanced security available and sets the standard for secure file sharing in the industry. Accellion is SOC2 certified and kiteworks is available in highly secure on-premise and hosted FedRAMP deployments. It provides organizations in highly regulated industries with complete visibility, security and control over the communication of IP, PII, PHI, and other sensitive content across email, file sharing, mobile, enterprise apps, web portals, SFTP, and automated inter-business workflows.

While Accellion maintains tight security standards for its legacy FTA product, we strongly encourage our customers to update to kiteworks, the modern enterprise content firewall platform, for the highest level of security and confidence.
