Accellion Adds Governance to File-Sharing/Collaboration Platform
Accellion's software is aimed squarely at data organization and security issues—the type that keep corporate executives up at night.Mobile enterprise file sharing and collaboration provider Accellion has added a new cloud-based information governance and security enhancements package to its Kiteworks content platform. Palo Alto, Calif.-based Accellion, founded in 1999, is well-established, with more than 12 million users and 2,000 of the world's leading corporations and government agencies as customers. Up until Aug. 6, when it released the new Governance option, it focused most of its business on file sharing and collaboration functions. Due to the confluence of the overall massive data influx and the increasing pressure on organizations from regulatory agencies at numerous levels, mitigating risk and showing compliance with industry regulations is increasingly important to corporate board members. Accellion's software is aimed squarely at these issues—the type that keep corporate executives up at night. "Enterprise organizations are looking to IT to deliver enhanced corporate oversight and control by providing the necessary tools to manage, preserve and protect information and satisfy strict legal and regulatory requirements," Vidhya Ranaganathan, Accellion Senior Vice-President for Products, told eWEEK. "That's where Accellion comes in."
Accellion's platform also provides IT departments with control and visibility of enterprise content sharing for compliance with government and industry regulations such as HIPAA, as well as full audit and reporting capabilities for all content stored and shared via cloud content repositories, including granular logging of user login, sharing and file/folder activities.
