PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 16, 2014) - Accellion, Inc., an industry leader in providing secure, enterprise mobile file sharing and collaboration solutions to enable increased business productivity, today announced the launch of kiteworks™ content connectors for Box and Dropbox to extend IT management and oversight to content stored by employees in cloud accounts. With the addition of the new cloud connectors kiteworks now offers IT organizations the ability to enable, track and secure the sharing of enterprise content both inside and outside the firewall.

"Enterprise organizations want to provide their employees access to all the data they need to get their job done, while ensuring that content sharing and syncing is done in a compliant manner," said Yorgen Edholm, CEO at Accellion. "We've taken a unique approach which recognizes that content is stored in multiple locations and what is a needed is a way to be able to access and work with that content securely. We're thrilled to offer a solution that does just that. Now, kiteworks users can view, edit, share and collaborate on content with internal and external users, on mobile devices, laptops or desktops regardless of whether the content is stored in the cloud, or behind the firewall."

The complete list of kiteworks content connectors includes: SharePoint 2007, 2010, 2013, SharePoint Online, Windows File Shares and Distributed File Systems, Documentum, OpenText, Google Drive for Work, Microsoft OneDrive for Business, Box and Dropbox.
