Secure File Sharing For Mobile Users

Accellion : 23 February, 2012  (Company News)
Accellion has entered an alliance to bring secure file sharing to enterprise mobile users
Secure File Sharing For Mobile Users
Accellion is partnering with BoxTone to offer enterprise organizations a secure mobility solution for centrally managing content sharing, collaboration and storage, across all mobile users, devices, tablets and apps. The joint solution enables organizations to manage mobile access to sensitive, confidential data - including patient information in the healthcare industry - for compliance with industry regulations such as HIPAA, HITECH, GLBA, and Sarbanes-Oxley. Through this partnership, Accellion and BoxTone are providing a secure and manageable alternative to consumer-grade file sharing apps available on mobile devices, which pose significant security and compliance risks.

“In the last year, the iPad is being used increasingly by employees at healthcare organizations in conjunction with unmanaged, untracked, free file storage and file sharing apps, in direct violation of federal mandates such as HIPAA.  Healthcare organizations have begun to realize the risks associated with these apps, but need a secure, managed alternative,” said Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales, Gary Rogers, Accellion, Inc. “Accellion, in partnership with BoxTone, provides CIOs with a comprehensive mobile security solution for controlling, managing and securing mobile access to sensitive information on a mobile device – integrated with full lifecycle enterprise mobility management.”

Accellion secure file sharing solutions are in use at the world’s leading healthcare organizations, enterprises and government agencies, and are designed for maximum protection of confidential information. Its partnership with BoxTone enables healthcare institutions, and other regulated organizations, to mobilize safely, reliably and efficiently. The joint solution allows for secure file sharing in complex mobile environments, where BoxTone’s automated EMM solution provides the platform to safely, efficiently and reliably mobilize the workforce while empowering healthcare IT to centrally manage document access and the full mobile lifecycle across all mobile users, devices, tablets and apps.

“Healthcare organizations are realizing the benefits of mobility, but accessing, securing and managing patient information anytime and anywhere requires a mobile device and app security and management infrastructure that enforces compliance with all industry regulations,” said Brian Reed, chief product officer, BoxTone. “We are excited to have Accellion join our BoxTone EMM Partner Network. Bridging our BoxTone EMM solution with Accellion’s secure file sharing ensures healthcare IT can instantly secure, manage and support thousands of mobile employee devices and apps, while retaining complete control over access and security of confidential document- and file-based patient information.”

Healthcare professionals can learn more about the secure mobility solution offered by BoxTone and Accellion in Las Vegas at HIMSS 2012 Booth 12928 Kiosk #13 on February 20-22 in the Mobile Health Knowledge Center.

Accellion supports Apple iOS, Android and BlackBerry mobile devices and is available in a choice of public or private cloud deployment in VMWare, Citrix XenServer or Microsoft HyperV environments. FIPS 140-2 certified deployment is also available. Accellion mobile file sharing solutions are designed for seamless integration with enterprise infrastructure including LDAP/AD, SAML SSO support, and provide comprehensive file tracking and reporting for demonstration of compliance with regulations including HIPAA Hitech, SOX, and GLBA.

BoxTone enables the enterprise to mobilize safely, reliably and efficiently by delivering an automated EMM platform that simplifies the delivery of mobile services. BoxTone is the industry’s only automated EMM platform to span the full mobile lifecycle of mobile security, support and operations for enterprise mobile deployments, ensuring that enterprises have a single point of control to continuously deliver the highest mobile performance and security at the lowest cost and risk. Today, BoxTone's software is used by 41 of the Fortune 100 companies, four of the five largest U.S. Banks, five of the top six U.S. Federal agencies and all of the major managed service providers (MSPs) to provide mobile device, support and operations management across more than 1 million mobile users, devices, and applications.
