Accellion Adds Sending Folders, Sophisticated Administrative Features to Courier Secure File Transfer Appliance

Enables users to securely send and receive folders and files as large as 10GB with one click

Palo Alto, California -- June 7, 2006 -- Accellion, Inc. announced today the release of the Accellion Courier Secure File Transfer Appliance (SFTA) Version 5.0. The updated version of the Courier SFTA allows enterprise end users to easily send and receive folders in a familiar e-mail-like interface -- the first time such a feature is available in the marketplace for corporate users without requiring interface with FTP.

Key features of the Accellion SFTA Version 5.0 include:

  • Ability to send and receive folders – giving end users the ability to consolidate large number of files into one folder or to preserve the sub-directory hierarchy for complex data structures into one top level folder

  • Ability to send and receive files and folders as large as 10GB with one click – more than 2 DVDs or 14 CDs worth of data

  • Enhanced administrative control on storage usage quota

“The ability to send and receive folders without FTP is a powerful tool,” said Steven M. Erde, M.D. Ph.D., senior director and chief security officer of Cornell University's Weill Medical College. “This allows our users to send large number of files while preserving the sometimes-complex directory relationship of these files.”
