Accellion to Exhibit Its Secure Content Platform, kiteworks, at the International Legal Technology Association (ILTACON)

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 27, 2015) - Accellion, Inc., the leading provider of private cloud solutions for secure file sharing and collaboration that ensure data security and compliance, today announced continued momentum in the legal industry for its award winning kiteworks secure content platform.

Accellion has a proven track record of successfully providing legal firms with highly secure file sharing solutions that meet the strictest security requirements. Accellion's legal customers feature prominently in the Am Law 100 and Global 100 rankings, and Accellion is ranked the number one choice for file sharing amongst large law firms, according to the International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) 2014 Technology Survey.

"Accellion has proven its worth each and every day," said Andy Jurczyk, CIO at Seyfarth Shaw, LLP. "The solution plays a critical role in helping us find a better way to meet clients' evolving needs for efficiency -- what our business is all about."

The on-premise, private cloud deployment architecture of kiteworks by Accellion is preferred by many law firms for its enhanced information security and control capabilities. Because kiteworks resides inside the customer's firewall, confidential information is exclusively controlled and managed by the legal firm, rather than delegated to third-party cloud providers.

"The ability for lawyers and their clients to securely share and collaborate on the most confidential of legal documents is an absolute must," commented Vidhya Ranganathan, SVP for Products at Accellion. "By providing law firms with secure wherever, whenever access to their clients' most critical legal documents, legal teams further strengthen their clients' trust."

kiteworks enables users to link content from multiple on-premise and cloud data sources in a single kiteworks folder to securely share with external users while also enabling IT administrators to enforce security policies across all content stores for auditing, reporting and compliance. Documents of record are always maintained in the source system, along with a complete audit trail. In addition, with kiteworks, users get a universal access point for working with content, regardless of where it resides. kiteworks supports a variety of on-premise and cloud content sources including: SharePoint, file shares and home drives, Documentum, OpenText, Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive and Box.
