European MSPs Choose Accellion for Enterprise Content Security

Data Sovereignty Requirements, Security and Collaboration Features Driving Adoption

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 10, 2015) - Accellion, Inc., the leading provider of private cloud solutions for secure content sharing and collaboration that ensure data security and compliance, today announced it has signed partnership agreements with several European-based managed service providers (MSPs) to offer Accellion's award winning kiteworks secure content platform to their customers as a locally hosted service.

Accellion has signed agreements with the following MSPs:

  • Hermitage Solutions, a leading French distributor of security, networks, and infrastructure solutions. Hermitage will host kiteworks locally, positioning the solution at the center of its CyberDefense offerings and make kiteworks available to an expansive network of resellers and systems integrators.

  • SecuriView, a premier French provider of managed security solutions. SecuriView will resell kiteworks and host kiteworks customers locally under the name "ZenAccess SFS" (Secure File Sharing) for SECURIVIEW.

  • Telindus, a premier cloud services integration provider based in Luxembourg, will offer kiteworks to their direct customers as part of their tailored solutions portfolio of cloud and colocation solutions. Specifically, kiteworks will bolster the Telindus Telecom U-share offer, a collaboration and mobility cloud solution.

"We are very excited to partner with Accellion, the worldwide enterprise leader in File Sharing and Mobile Collaboration solutions," said Gérard Hoffmann, Chairman & Managing Director at Telindus. "We are always looking for new and innovative ways to improve our customers' infrastructure and this partnership provides a secure way to manage and access multiple sensitive content sources on any device."

"Our clients rely on us to provide expert counsel and market leading solutions, particularly when managing their most valuable content is concerned," said Alain Takahashi at Hermitage. "We recognize Accellion's kiteworks solution as one of the best in the marketplace for securing enterprise content and enabling collaboration and are pleased to be able to offer their solutions to our clients."

Data Sovereignty
MSPs and their customers recognize Accellion as uniquely positioned to meet European data sovereignty requirements. In light of the recent ruling by the European Court of Justice invalidating the long-held Safe Harbor agreement between the US and the European Union, European companies have less than three months to demonstrate data sovereignty compliance. As kiteworks can be a fully on-premise, MSP-hosted private cloud solution, MSPs can assure their customers that kiteworks meets the EU's data sovereignty requirements and provides companies full control of their data and metadata.

Content Security
MSPs are recommending Accellion to their valued customers for best in class security and collaboration solutions. MSPs see in Accellion distinct capabilities that enable secure access to enterprise content from any device and any content source on either side of the firewall. These capabilities not only ensure enterprise security and compliance but they also increase business productivity. Key security and administration capabilities of the kiteworks secure content platform include:

  • Customer encryption keys ownership with rotation control
  • Comprehensive auditing and reporting
  • Data sovereignty
  • Anti-Virus
  • LDAP/AD, SSO, Two-factor authentication
  • Online viewer
  • DLP
  • Remote wipe
  • eDiscovery
  • App whitelisting
  • Offline PIN
  • Policy-based content retention
  • Restricted admin access to content
  • User-friendly DRM with watermarking, view only, and file withdraw capabilities

"Accellion is built for Europe and MSPs," commented Keith Poyser, General Manager for EMEA at Accellion. "With kiteworks, MSPs can provide their customers with a local solution that meets strict EU data sovereignty requirements and enables secure content access, sharing and collaboration across all content sources behind a single pane of glass. In return, MSPs add value to their portfolios, bolster their relationships with their customers, and add new revenue service lines. It's a real 'win-win' for MSPs and their customers."
