Enterprise grade, secure mobile file sharing
Posted on 20 July 2012.
Accellion announced the latest version of native Accellion Mobile Apps which allow business users to collaborate and view more than 200 different file types, editing and sharing files from a secure, encrypted location using smartphones and tablets.

Accellion apps for iOS, BlackBerry, and Android devices deliver an alternative to browser-based apps. Once users have downloaded the mobile application, they can simply login and begin browsing their workspace to find and view relevant content using a simple, intuitive interface.

With the right privileges, users have the flexibility to edit a file either online or download the encrypted file for offline use (without a wifi or data connection), and then upload the edited file back to the Accellion Secure Workspace.

For IT and security teams, the latest version of Accellion Mobile Apps provides:

FIPS 140-2 Certification. Accellion has completed the rigorous validation process and obtained certification by the Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP) to meet the security requirements set forth for Federal organizations by the NIST.

Granular control over user privileges to align with an organization’s data privacy, compliance and security policies, including the ability to designate whether users are Standard, Expert or Restricted and/or if they can “View Only” or “Edit” files.

Secure file lifecycle from authentication to encrypted (256-bit AES) files at rest and in transit to secure editing and saving edited files back to the Accellion cloud.

Public, private, hybrid cloud connections to maximize privacy and protection based on an enterprise’s specific security needs and requirements.

Password-protected files that only allow the person who owns the device to access locally saved and encrypted files.

Remote monitoring, logging and easy to access usage reports of mobile apps, including remote workers and third parties.
