Claims to enable users to securely and efficiently share digital files
Accellion has extended managed file transfer offering Accellion Virtual Appliance A5000X, to include support for Citrix XenServer virtual environments for secure sharing of digital files.
The company said that the enterprise secure file transfer offerings protect companies against security and compliance risks at the file transfer source, and allows corporations and government agencies to provide their business users with secure sharing of files.
Its appliances come in virtual, cloud and hardware-based configurations which work together and can be used both on-premise and in-the-cloud, to support multi-office installations and standalone single-site offerings.
The offering provides tracking and reporting capabilities to help customers’ document conformance with security and compliance requirements during electronic file transfers, and enables customers to send and receive files up to 50GB in a format, meeting security and privacy requirements.
Accellion said that the Virtual Appliance A5000X for Citrix XenServer is available for use with both the free and Platinum editions of Citrix XenServer 5.6.
Accellion president and chief executive officer Yorgen Edholm said growing concerns over security risks associated with sharing information through unsecure methods including P2P, mail and courier services, are driving demand for Accellion secure file transfer.
"With the introduction of the Accellion Virtual Appliance for Citrix XenServer, organisations can immediately address these challenges through rapid enterprise-wide deployment of secure file transfer capabilities within a Citrix virtual environment," Edholm said.
