Protect Sensitive Information Without Compromising Productivity

Accellion secure file sharing empowers employees to work with third parties across a variety of secure channels: collaboration, virtual data rooms (VDR), managed file transfer (MFT), and SFTP. This approach reduces risk and cost by leveraging a common secure file sharing foundation with a single set of controls, governance policies, user management, and data source connectivity. More important, users work with the same folders, contents, and user permissions across these channels, thus reducing errors, speeding responses and improving business outcomes.

For years, legacy MFT products have transformed custom-scripted transfer projects into scalable, reliable operations. But now, CISOs reeling from surging cyber-attacks mandate deeper defenses, and your Compliance Officer requires even more audits. Meanwhile, the business demands faster turnaround, and qualified staff is harder to find… and keep. Prevail over these challenges with managed file transfer designed from the ground up for simplicity, security, and governance. Easily deploy its virtual appliance cluster—or our hosted service—and configure your policies. Immediately benefit from the security of its hardened vault and built-in defense in depth. Configure trading partner workflows, start operations, and breathe a sigh of relief as your auditors and SOC now see every transaction detail in built-in audit reports, security analytics, and your SIEM.
