High Uptake For SharePoint Security Plug-In

Accellion : 06 October, 2011  (New Product)
Accellion has closed gaps in SharePoint Security with a plug-in designed for Microsoft's popular collaboration tool
High Uptake For SharePoint Security Plug-In
Accellion has announced from the Microsoft SharePoint 2011 conference in Anaheim, California (booth # 153) that increasing security concerns over unsecure sharing of SharePoint files is driving demand for the Accellion SharePoint plug-in.  By extending secure file sharing of SharePoint files to external users, Accellion is closing a security hole for organizations with heavy investments in SharePoint.  Organizations that recently purchased the Accellion SharePoint plug-in include Accelrys, Altera Corporation, Booz & Company, Sanford Burnham Medical Research Institute, Chemtura and others.
 
“The enterprise customers we work with have invested in SharePoint, but know that it can be cumbersome and expensive to set up external access to SharePoint.  When internal users discover they can’t share their SharePoint files beyond the firewall, they frequently seek workarounds, including dropbox-style apps, regardless of the security and compliance risks,” said Yorgen Edholm, CEO of Accellion.  “With Accellion, no compromises have to be made.  Business users have a secure, intuitive, SharePoint file sharing solution for both internal and external file sharing, and the organization is able to protect, track and manage the files that are exchanged.”

Accellion secure file sharing supports Microsoft SharePoint 2010 and 2007, and allows users to share any size file or folder directly from SharePoint Document Library to internal and external collaborators.  Tracking files and reporting on document trails for auditing and compliance is made easier using Accellion. IT managers and security officers can more easily audit file transfers and confirm that confidential data is not being sent to inappropriate parties.

With Accellion, file sharing complies with all applicable laws and industry regulations mandating security and audit trails for confidential communications, including Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), and the Health Insurance Portability and Availability Act (HIPAA).

The Accellion Microsoft Productivity Business suite augments Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint, and OCS with secure file sharing capabilities, including features for monitoring and auditing file sharing activities.  By deploying the Accellion solution, enterprise IT departments can ensure their users communicate and collaborate securely with both internal users and external users, while avoiding risky file-sharing practices, and avoid expensive deployments of special server farms.
