Accellion releases new governance package

By

Private cloud solutions provider Accellion has added new security and governance capabilities to its kiteworks secure content platform.

Accellion says the new kiteworks governance package is designed to assist enterprise organisations in demonstrating compliance with legal and regulatory demands.  

According to Vidhya Ranaganathan, SVP for Products at Accellion, mitigating risk and demonstrating compliance with industry regulations is becoming increasingly important in corporate boardrooms.

Ranaganathan says enterprise organisations are looking to IT to deliver enhanced corporate oversight and control by providing the necessary tools to manage, preserve and protect information and satisfy strict legal and regulatory requirements.

“The rise of data breaches, reputational damage, and significant investor loss reinforces the fact that there is much at stake in today’s business environment.

"As a result, enterprises need to have better control and insight into how their information is accessed, shared and archived.

“Our new governance features provide IT departments and corporate directors these essential tools and, in turn, the assurance that their digital assets are properly controlled and retained.”

Ranaganathan cites a report by Cheryl McKinnon, Principal Analyst for Enterprise Architecture at Forrester Research commenting that “support for legal and compliance teams during investigations and eDiscovery, and the timely disposal of obsolete information, are top drivers for investment.”

Key capabilities of the Accelion governance package include:

•    eDiscovery: Enables enterprise organisations to comply with legal requests for discovery by collecting relevant documents and metadata, archiving all relevant content, retaining auditable logs, and enabling easy export of content tagged for eDiscovery to legal teams

•    DLP integration: Provides for high levels of governance and compliance by monitoring all shared documents based on corporate policy and quarantining any documents containing sensitive data to prevent data leakage. Integrates with leading DLP solutions including Symantec, WebSense, Code Green, Fidelis, RSA, and others

•    User-friendly DRM: Prevents file downloads with view-only roles and deters unauthorised forwarding and printing via watermarking. Allows withdrawal of files even after they are sent

•    Policy-based Content Retention: Enforces corporate-defined content retention policies to ensure appropriate preservation and deletion of documents.
