Private Cloud Solutions Provider Accellion Unveils New Data Loss Prevention and Antivirus Capabilities

Accellion, Inc., a provider of private cloud solutions for secure file sharing and collaboration, has added new security features in the kiteworks content platform to help enterprises keep their critical enterprise data secure while extending compliance with rigorous industry requirements.

According to the vendor, the new features add protection to an enterprise’s content management systems by scanning all sent and received files - whether the files reside in on-premises or cloud-based enterprise content systems - to identify any viruses or malware that could lead to a data breach. With the new capabilities, files can now be scanned with data loss prevention (DLP) and antivirus (AV) capabilities to further safeguard enterprise content.

“The core value of kiteworks is its ability to protect enterprise data and ensure rigorous industry compliance,” said Yorgen Edholm, CEO of Accellion. “These new features, in combination with our many existing capabilities, further demonstrate that kiteworks is singularly qualified to keep enterprises and their most valuable content safe.”

Because kiteworks seamlessly integrates with existing content management systems, employees can access, edit and share all enterprise content from a single pane of glass without having to duplicate or upload edited files back to the system of origin. Now with

With DLP scanning of every downloaded file and AV scanning of every uploaded file, employees can more securely collaborate with external partners across their enterprise ecosystem and be assured that their critical content will be protected, regardless of where it is stored or from which device it is accessed.
