Secure Sharing of E-Mail Attachments

Accellion : 08 April, 2010  (New Product)
File transfer system from Accellion and Government Technology Solutions enables risk-free sharing of attachments from e-mails
Accellion has entered into a reseller partnership with Government Technology Solutions to provide government agencies with a secure, efficient way to share e-mail attachments. The agreement addresses Government Technology Solutions' customers' growing e-mail security and bandwidth concerns, protecting them against security risks at the file transfer source. It also extends the market penetration of Accellion's Secure File Transfer Solution within the government sector.

"We have seen more attacks in the first three months of 2010 than we did in all of 2009. Not only are we seeing more security attacks, we are seeing more successful attacks," said Robert Deitz, CEO, Government Technology Solutions. "Knowing there isn't simply one solution to manage these attacks, it is essential that the different technology components put into place to manage the many security layers work together seamlessly. Accellion is a perfect and natural fit to our security and information assurance offerings, enabling us to address risks associated with file transfers. Accellion's technology is proven, it is relevant, and it fits."

With Accellion Managed File Transfer, government agencies and enterprises quickly and securely share digital files (up to 20 GB) without impacting e-mail performance or increasing e-mail storage requirements. The solution features authentication check points that validate recipients so confidential information is not overexposed. Additionally, an audit trail tracks and reports who receives a file and when.

For federal, state and local agencies requiring additional safeguards, the Accellion solution can be easily integrated with data leakage prevention solutions enabling definition and enforcement of corporate content-based policy decisions for greater control over information sharing.

"Increased data breaches and extended compliance regulations like HIPAA make it impossible to ignore security vulnerabilities," said Yorgen Edholm, president and CEO of Accellion. "Partnering with Government Technology Solutions makes it easier for government agencies to protect themselves against the dangers associated with e-mail attachments."

Accellion achieved Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 Level 2 certification from the Commerce Department's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The certification ensures federal, state, and local agencies that the information they share via the Accellion Managed File Transfer FIPS Certified Appliance is done so in a manner that meets the NIST's strict security and compliance guidelines.
