PALO ALTO, Calif., March 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Accellion, Inc., the leading platform that enables organizations to securely share sensitive information with the outside world while maintaining the controls and visibility needed to demonstrate compliance, today announced it has been named to KMWorld Magazine’s “100 Companies That Matter in Knowledge Management” for the seventh year in-a-row.

Accellion’s secure file sharing platform provides a secure governance perimeter around an organization’s most sensitive content, whether it is stored on-prem or in the cloud. This allows CISOs to have full visibility, and therefore full control, of where sensitive content is stored, who has access to it, and what’s being done with it.

“Enterprises across a wide range of industries must reconcile the dual challenge of sharing sensitive information securely while demonstrating compliance with a myriad of internal policies, industry standards, government regulations and laws,” commented Yaron Galant, Chief Product Officer at Accellion. “As a result, KMWorld’s annual list is more relevant and timely than ever, and we’re proud that this publication continues to view Accellion’s secure file sharing platform as a critical piece of an organization’s security and compliance efforts.”
