Accellion and BoxTone Partner to Deliver Mobility Management and Content Security Solutions for Healthcare, Other Regulated Industries



Combined Solutions Bring Together Enterprise-Grade, Secure Mobile File Sharing With Automated Enterprise Mobility Management

Columbia, MD and Palo Alto, CA – February 23, 2012 – Accellion, Inc. <http://www.accellion.com/> is partnering with BoxTone <http://www.boxtone.com/> , the innovator of automated Enterprise Mobility Management <http://www.boxtone.com/Solutions/EnterpriseMobilityManagement.aspx>  (EMM), to offer enterprise organisations a secure mobility solution for centrally managing content sharing, collaboration and storage, across all mobile users, devices, tablets and apps.

The joint solution enables organisations to manage mobile access to sensitive, confidential data - including patient information in the healthcare industry - for compliance with industry regulations such as HIPAA, HITECH, GLBA, and Sarbanes-Oxley. Through this partnership, Accellion and BoxTone are providing a secure and manageable alternative to consumer-grade file sharing apps available on mobile devices, which pose significant security and compliance risks.

“In the last year, the iPad is being used increasingly by employees at healthcare organisations in conjunction with unmanaged, untracked, free file storage and file sharing apps, in direct violation of federal mandates such as HIPAA.  Healthcare organisations have begun to realise the risks associated with these apps, but need a secure, managed alternative,” said Senior Vice President, Worldwide Sales, Gary Rogers, Accellion, Inc. “Accellion, in partnership with BoxTone, provides CIOs with a comprehensive mobile security solution for controlling, managing and securing mobile access to sensitive information on a mobile device – integrated with full lifecycle enterprise mobility management.”

Accellion secure file sharing solutions are in use at the world’s leading healthcare organisations, enterprises and government agencies, and are designed for maximum protection of confidential information. Its partnership with BoxTone enables healthcare institutions, and other regulated organisations, to mobilise safely, reliably and efficiently. The joint solution allows for secure file sharing in complex mobile environments, where BoxTone’s automated EMM solution provides the platform to safely, efficiently and reliably mobilise the workforce while empowering healthcare IT to centrally manage document access and the full mobile lifecycle across all mobile users, devices, tablets and apps.

“Healthcare organisations are realising the benefits of mobility, but accessing, securing and managing patient information anytime and anywhere requires a mobile device and app security and management infrastructure that enforces compliance with all industry regulations,” said Brian Reed, chief product officer, BoxTone. “We are excited to have Accellion join our BoxTone EMM Partner Network. Bridging our BoxTone EMM solution with Accellion’s secure file sharing ensures healthcare IT can instantly secure, manage and support thousands of mobile employee devices and apps, while retaining complete control over access and security of confidential document- and file-based patient information.”

Accellion supports Apple iOS, Android and BlackBerry mobile devices and is available in a choice of public or private cloud deployment in VMWare, Citrix XenServer or Microsoft HyperV environments. FIPS 140-2 certified deployment is also available.

Accellion mobile file sharing solutions are designed for seamless integration with enterprise infrastructure including LDAP/AD, SAML SSO support, and provide comprehensive file tracking and reporting for demonstration of compliance with regulations including HIPAA Hitech, SOX, and GLBA.
