Document Security and Compliance Requirements Conformance During File Transfers with Accellion

Improved tracking and reporting features in Accellion’s Courier Secure File Transfer Appliance

Accellion Inc. has added new features to its Courier Secure File Transfer Appliance, which allows users and IT administrators to document their security and compliance methods while sending or receiving files electronically. Version 5.5, available immediately, now includes carbon copy (cc) and blind carbon copy (bcc) capabilities, as well as enhanced troubleshooting tools.

Regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley and HIPAA mean that “the ability to clearly document how security and compliance are maintained is an important requirement for most enterprises,” said Yorgen H. Edholm, president and CEO of Accellion. An Accellion-commissioned survey has found that the ability to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of electronically transmitted information has become increasingly important to consumers.

To meet this need, the Courier Secure File Transfer Appliance promises to let users send and receive large files securely, as well as provide records of files’ “access” and “send” histories -- users can now view “who downloaded what and when” and “what and when was sent to whom,” according to a press release.
