Accellion Extends Secure File Transfer to Autonomy iManage

Provides Legal Teams with a Fast, Secure, Auditable Way to Share Files Directly from Autonomy iManage Document Management System

 
Palo Alto, CA – January 25, 2011 –

Accellion, Inc. today announced the Accellion for iManage Plug-in which enables legal professionals to easily and securely send files of any size to business partners, outside counsel and clients directly from the Autonomy iManage application.  The Accellion for iManage Plug-in integrates the award-winning Accellion Secure Managed File Transfer solution with Autonomy iManage to provide legal professionals with a secure, compliant way to share confidential information.

Accellion Secure File Transfer is used by leading legal firms around the globe including Morgan Lewis, SNR Denton, Bingham McCutchen, Cozen O’Connor, Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe, Hogan Lovells and Clyde & Co.  The Accellion for iManage Plug-in was developed in partnership with Younts Consulting, an Autonomy iManage partner and one of the largest iManage Worksite (formerly Interwoven) resellers in the U.S.

The Accellion for iManage Plug-in allows law firms to quickly and securely transfer single or multiple documents and emails directly from the Autonomy iManage document management system (DMS).  All files transferred via the Accellion for iManage Plug-in are secured and automatically provide a return receipt and an audit trail with the tracking and reporting necessary to demonstrate compliance.

“The ability to quickly access and share data in a secure manner is essential for legal professionals.  However, confidentiality requirements make sharing this information a challenging process,” said Yorgen Edholm, president and CEO of Accellion.  “Working closely with Younts Consulting to integrate Accellion Secure File Transfer with the Autonomy iManage system, we are making it easier and safer for legal professionals to share large case files and other legal documents between clients, partners and outside counsel.

“Instant access to information and simplicity is essential in the fast-paced legal industry,” said Chris Degnan, CEO of Younts Consulting.  “In partnering with Accellion we are making secure file transfer capabilities more readily accessible to our legal clients without requiring any additional steps.  Sending information via Accellion, our clients can be assured their information is safe and compliance mandates are adhered to.”

Accellion and Younts Consulting will be demonstrating the Accellion for iManage Plug-in during the LegalTech show January 31 – February 2, in New York. The Accellion iManage Plug-in will be sold by Accellion and Younts consulting and will be generally available in February 2011.  Interested parties should contact Accellion at info@accellion.com for further information.
