Accellion Adds Features to Protect ECM Systems Files

Accellion, a provider of private cloud solutions for secure file sharing and collaboration, is introducing new data loss prevention (DLP) and antivirus (AV) capabilities for its secure content platform, kiteworks, to help enterprises keep their critical enterprise data secure while extending compliance with industry requirements.

Whether the files reside in on-premise or in cloud-based enterprise content systems, Accellion says, the new features protect an enterprise’s various content management systems, such as SharePoint and Box, by scanning all sent and received files to identify viruses or malware that could lead to a data breach.

According to Yorgen Edholm, CEO of Accellion, the core value of kiteworks is its ability to protect enterprise data and ensure industry compliance, and with these new features, in addition to other capabilities, kiteworks continues that mission.

kiteworks integrates with existing content management systems, enabling employees to 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. With the addition of DLP scanning of every downloaded file and AV scanning of every uploaded file, the company says, employees will be able to collaborate securely with external partners across the enterprise ecosystem and also know that their content will be secure.

The key capabilities include the ability to perform an AV scan automatically on any file that is uploaded through kiteworks to an on-premises or cloud-based enterprise content management system such as SharePoint, SharePoint Online, Documentum, OneDrive, Dropbox, Box, and others. In addition, the new capabilities include the ability to do a DLP scan automatically on any file that is downloaded through kiteworks from an on-premises or cloud based ECM system. If a user attempts to upload or download an infected file, the action will be suspended and users will be informed of the failure.
