Accellion Partners With Kandy for Secure Enhanced Collaboration

Real-Time Communications Combine With Secure Mobile Sharing for Improved Productivity

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 2, 2015) - Accellion, Inc., the leading provider of enterprise mobile solutions that enable increased productivity and security, today announced a partnership with GENBAND to use Kandy, a communications Platform-as-a-Service, within kiteworks, to enhance secure collaboration capabilities for a mobile workforce via real-time communications. This new partnership will create an interactive experience and streamline the way mobile workers can securely create, view, share, and collaborate on enterprise content.

Kandy's rich communication capabilities work with the kiteworks solution to offer an enhanced secure collaboration solution for mobile workers to collaborate with coworkers, partners and customers. Using the kiteworks application, enterprise users have the capability to securely chat with other users about a contract they are working on, see if a coworker is also online in the kiteworks app, or have a video call with their boss to finalize last-minute project details before submitting a contract to a customer.

"Mobile workers need to be able to access the content they need to get their work done, no matter where they are, or what time zone they are in," said Vidhya Ranganathan, SVP of Products at Accellion. "In addition to immediate content access, they often also need real-time collaboration with coworkers, to finalize project details, get approvals, or coordinate the signing of a contract. With kiteworks and Kandy, mobile workers will have secure enhanced, real-time communications around business critical content so they can get the job done, wherever."

"Now with Kandy, kiteworks offers enhanced collaboration via real time communications, so users can have a more personal and interactive experience creating a secure connected community," said Paul Pluschkell, Executive Vice President of Strategy and Cloud Services and Kandy Founder. "We're thrilled to partner with a secure offering such as kiteworks, so that mobile employees can instantly chat and communicate as they securely create, review, and collaborate on the content they need to complete their daily work."
