PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - May 9, 2013) - Accellion, Inc., the award-winning pioneer in providing enterprise-class, secure mobile file sharing solutions, today announced its selection as a winner of the 2013 Security Products' Govies Government Security Awards. The Accellion Mobile File Sharing solution is recognized for enabling secure viewing, editing, sharing and syncing of enterprise content on mobile devices, while delivering IT and security controls to manage user privileges and access rights to protect data and meet regulatory standards.
"Government agencies and departments are looking to leverage the productivity gained by today's wealth of mobile devices, but these organizations need to securely provide access to user and department documents, while maintaining control and accountability at every level," said Ken Novellino, federal account manager of Accellion, Inc. "This award is further validation of Accellion's ability to enable mobile productivity while ensuring that confidential data is secure and in compliance with industry and government regulations."
The Accellion Secure Mobile File Sharing solution combines secure mobile content creation and editing with secure file sync and sharing. This eliminates the risk of data leaks from employees who are opening, editing and sharing documents using unapproved, insecure consumer apps. In addition, through its kitepoint feature, Accellion provides secure, real-time mobile access to files stored in SharePoint and on Windows File Servers without the need for a VPN. Users can safely view and collaborate on files from tablets, smartphones or desktops, without having to duplicate or expose sensitive documents to unsecured, public cloud services.
The Accellion Mobile File Sharing solution utilizes FIPS-140-2 certified encryption, allowing federal organizations to meet the security requirements set forth by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). With Accellion, customers such as NASA and the US Securities and Exchange Commission are ensuring that their employees' data activities are in full compliance with U.S. federal government guidance and policy.
The Security Products' 2013 Govies awards recognize outstanding government security products in a variety of categories. Platinum and Gold winners within each category will be announced at the 2013 GovSec Conference held from May 13-15 in Washington, D.C.
