International Advertising Agency, Hogarth Worldwide, Selects Accellion for Secure Large File Transfer Needs

Ease of Use and Improved Security Result in High End User Adoption

 
Palo Alto, CA – March 8, 2011 –

Accellion, Inc. today announced that advertising implementation agency, Hogarth Worldwide, has chosen Accellion Secure File Transfer as a way for employees to securely share large files with customers and colleagues across the globe. Hogarth selected Accellion’s solution because it is easy to use and highly secure.

Part of the WPP advertising group, Hogarth provides copy localization for advertising agencies across the group.  Clients around the globe rely on Hogarth to translate master creatives in print, TV and digital formats, from English into local languages.

The choice of Accellion was driven by security concerns and complexities associated with using alternative file transfer methods. The need to provide an audit trail also prompted Hogarth to look for a secure and compliant means to share large files.

Initially deployed to provide employees with a quick, easy way to share files with external customers, Accellion has quickly become the standard for sharing information internally among Hogarth’s own employees who are located across multiple sites.  According to Alex Buchanan, technology operations director for Hogarth, “many of our employees prefer to use the Accellion solution over old “drop box”-style solutions as it is much easier to use.”

The Accellion File Transfer solution enables Hogarth’s employees to securely send and receive files and folders.  With unmatched encryption and authentication checkpoints, recipients are validated so confidential information is not overexposed.  “The comprehensive audit trail provided by Accellion, detailing who received a file and when has proven very valuable for internal and external audits,” added Buchanan.

“For enterprises such as Hogarth Worldwide that deal with very large data and media files, the Accellion solution makes sharing files as simple as sending an e-mail,” said Paul Steiner, Accellion’s managing director for Europe.  “The ability to quickly share files in a secure manner provides an added level of confidence.”
