Accellion kiteworks Named a 2017 KMWorld Trend-Setting Product

Award Recognizes the Need for Enterprises to Strengthen Data Security that Demonstrates Compliance While Also Improving Business Productivity

Palo Alto, California, UNITED STATES

PALO ALTO, Calif., Sept. 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Accellion, Inc., the leading provider in enabling organizations to securely share sensitive information with the outside world while maintaining the controls and visibility needed to demonstrate compliance, today announced its kiteworks solution has been named a KMWorld Trend-Setting Product for a sixth straight year.

The KMWorld editorial staff awards the Trend-Setting Product designation to solutions that it finds are designed, developed and perfectly timed to fill a need in the marketplace before users are even aware that such functionality and flexibility have been missing.

For organizations working with sensitive information, including those in highly regulated industries, Accellion kiteworks addresses the critical factors in demonstrating compliance, delivering the security, control and visibility necessary as external users become part of business processes. When these workflows include the need to share private information, intellectual property or sensitive financial data, enterprise IT departments are faced with the challenge of ensuring only authorized users are able to access the content. In the case of an audit or a breach, they must also be able to show detailed activity history, including who accessed the files, when the access occurred, and whether any files were modified.

“kiteworks establishes a secure governance perimeter around an enterprise’s most sensitive content wherever it resides, on-premise or in the cloud, and provides the controls necessary to demonstrate compliance with industry regulations, internal policies and applicable standards,” said Andy Feit, Chief Marketing Officer at Accellion. “The KMWorld Trend-Setting Product designation recognizes the need for organizations to prioritize data security and governance, not just when it’s stored in the enterprise, but also when it’s shared externally. By integrating with an enterprise’s existing security infrastructure, and connecting to the broadest range of content stores, Accellion allows organizations to demonstrate compliance even as they extend their business processes beyond their own borders.”

“Our 2017 KMWorld Trend-Setting Products result from innovation and imagination, as well as from evolution,” says Sandra Haimila, editor of KMWorld. “The products reflect the ingenuity of the developers and the diversity of invention. More than anything else, the 2017 Trend-Setting Products have captured our attention because of their ability to meet business needs by transforming information into insight.”
