Accellion, Inc. Key Developments

Accellion and PacketZoom Announce Development Partnership

Accellion, Inc. and PacketZoom announced they have entered into a development partnership. Under the terms of the agreement, the companies will work together to optimize performance models when sharing and editing large files, further enhancing the performance of Accellion’s kiteworks mobile application. As enterprise content continues to increase in size, spurred in part by the emergence of richer content types including high resolution images and video, a growing mobile workforce will place demands on file sharing applications to deliver content quickly. Documents, spreadsheets, presentations, images, videos and other file formats can range from several megabytes to gigabytes in size, and employee efficiency when collaborating on information with partners or clients will require faster network performance – particularly when using a smartphone or tablet. To stay ahead of this trend, Accellion has identified PacketZoom’s technology as an innovative approach to significantly accelerate content download speeds. Accellion and PacketZoom are currently testing PacketZoom’s Mobile Expresslane solution, integrated with Accellion’s kiteworks mobile application. Accellion anticipates being able to double download speeds using kiteworks’ mobile application once a version incorporating PacketZoom is available, which is expected in an upcoming release.

Accellion, Inc. Announces Several New, Powerful Security Features in the Kiteworks Content Platform

Accellion, Inc. announced several new, powerful security features in the kiteworks content platform that further enable enterprises to keep their critical enterprise data secure while extending compliance with rigorous industry requirements. These new features provide added protection to an enterprise's various content management systems by scanning all sent and received files to identify any viruses or malware that could lead to a data breach. Whether the files reside in on-premises or cloud-based enterprise content systems, the data within the files can now be scanned with data loss prevention (DLP) and antivirus (AV) capabilities to further safeguard enterprise content. Because kiteworks seamlessly integrates with existing content management systems, employees can access, edit and share all enterprise content from a single pane of glass without having to duplicate or upload edited files back to the system of origin. Now with DLP scanning of every downloaded file and AV scanning of every uploaded file, employees can collaborate securely with external partners across the enterprise ecosystem while enterprises can be assured that their most critical content will stay secure, regardless of where it is stored or from which device it is accessed. Accellion's new security features include the following key capabilities: Antivirus Scans on File Upload -- perform an AV scan automatically on any file that is uploaded through kiteworks to an on-premises or cloud based enterprise content management system like SharePoint, SharePoint Online, Documentum, OneDrive, Dropbox, Box, and others. If a user attempts to upload an infected file, the action will be suspended and the user will be informed of the failure. Data Loss Prevention Scans on File Download -- perform a DLP scan automatically on any file that is downloaded through kiteworks from an on-premises or cloud based ECM system. If the file is infected and fails the scan, both the recipient and sender will be informed.

Accellion, Inc. Announces Features Enhance Data Security and Further Reduce the Risk of a Data Breach

Accellion, Inc. announced the addition of several key security features to its kiteworks secure content platform to further safeguard enterprise data from a costly data breach. These features, including a number of 'industry first' offerings, better enable enterprise employees to handle enterprise content securely. It does not matter whether employees are working remotely or onsite, collaborating with colleagues or external partners, or accessing content that is stored on premises or in the cloud; enterprise content can be retrieved, edited and shared securely within kiteworks. The company's new security features include the following key capabilities: Restricted Folders and Leak Proof Editing; Enable leak proof editing within restricted folders that allow file editing but prevent file downloading or forwarding. A first for the industry, restricted folders significantly reduce the risk of a data leak in that collaborators cannot share sensitive documents with unauthorized people. Desktop Remote Wipe: Set desktop clients to encrypt synced data when not in use and delete data remotely. A first for the industry, this capability minimizes the risk of a data leak should a laptop be stolen or when an employee leaves an organization with work files still on a personal PC. Secure Email Message; Whether originating from kiteworks or Microsoft Outlook, users can ensure the contents of an email - both text and attachments - are secure. Recipients receive a secure link to retrieve an email and must authenticate to access the content in the email body. File Type Exclusions: Restrict email upload of certain file types that are very large or are popular vehicles for malware, including .exe, .mov, and .mp4. In fact, kiteworks not only checks the file extension name but also the content to prevent users from simply renaming a file with a different file extension. Touch ID: Enable Touch ID authentication on iOS (iPhone 5S or later) devices, providing an alternative to traditional PIN authentication. Multi-Branding: Customize the kiteworks platform to maintain consistent corporate brand identity. A first for the industry, multi-branding provides enterprises with custom branding capabilities for each of their subsidiaries to ensure a consistent user experience and eliminate any concerns about phishing. Collaboration Permissions Per User Profile: Configure (enable or disable) collaboration permissions based on a user's profile to prevent unauthorized sharing of files and folders with people outside the company that could pose a security risk or licensing violation: Single Sign-On Using Kerberos: Support for Kerberos, an industry standard network authentication protocol that enables secure mutual authentication between users and servers, adding another single sign-on capability. All of these features are currently available and complement the many security features already provided in kiteworks, including: Encryption: All files are encrypted at-rest and in-motion and organizations retain full ownership of the encryption keys. Full Auditing: Every user action in the system is logged, and audit reports can be easily created to provide full visibility and demonstration of compliance. DLP integration: Monitor shared documents and quarantine those containing sensitive data to prevent data leakage. Integrates with Symantec, WebSense, RSA, and others. eDiscovery: Collect relevant documents and metadata, archive all relevant content, retain auditable logs, and easily export content tagged for eDiscovery to legal teams. Policy-based Content Retention: Enforce corporate-defined content retention policies to ensure appropriate preservation and del etion of documents. Data Sovereignty: geographic policies can be enforced to restrict user content to storage physically located in specific countries to meet data residency requirements. App Whitelisting: Establish and enforce which applications and content sources are accessible via kiteworks on the web or via kiteworks mobile. User-friendly DRM: Establish view-only roles to prevent file downloads, deter unauthorized forwarding and printing via watermarking, and withdraw files even after they have been sent.
