Accellion: Secure File Transfer speeds up collaboration efforts in pharma industry

Secure File Transfer combines ease of use with regulation standard security and tracking.

Accellion said that its Secure File Transfer is being used to speed up collaboration efforts and overcome large file transfer issues by the pharmaceutical and medical device companies.

Accellion claimed that its Secure File Transfer is easy-to-use and provides the necessary layers of security and tracking to maintain compliance with HIPAA and FDA regulations.

The Accellion secure managed file transfer solution allows pharmaceutical and medical device companies to securely send and receive files and folders up to 50GB in size and also provides a comprehensive audit trail of who received a file and when.

Accellion's managed file transfer solution integrates both on-premise and off-premise deployment options for cloud and virtual environments that work together seamlessly.

Accellion president and CEO Yorgen Edholm said that from clinical research to drug and device design, the pharmaceutical and medical device industries generate a significant amount of data.

"Accellion Secure File Transfer provides a fast, secure way to share digital files while meeting the strictest security and compliance requirements," Edholm said.

Omnyx IT senior manager Kirk Howard said that since replacing FTP with the Accellion Secure File Transfer solution they have eliminated the security and support issues typical with FTP.

"Accellion enables our employees to share large files quickly, securely, and effortlessly while meeting our strict compliance requirements," Howard said.
