Digital services provider ixtel technologies has signed a partnership agreement with Accellion, a provider of secure file sharing, synchronising, collaboration, editing, annotating and mobile productivity solutions. According to the firm, Accellion offering is the most secure way to enable increased workflow and mobile collaboration by allowing end-users to access, share and control critical documents wherever they go on any tablet, smartphone, or PC, and even on devices beyond the IT department’s control.
Accellion significantly enhances ixtel’s portfolio, particularly for organisations in industries such as technology, finance, legal and manufacturing, where sensitive information has to be shared externally.
“The need to deliver a secure enterprise mobility strategy is one of the most pressing issues that IT security teams are tackling today as mobile workforces are only set to grow. The addition of Accellion means that our Enterprise Mobility stack can deliver a complete solution for customers to offer their end users, all of whom are striving to prevent data loss, mitigate security breaches and meet compliance regulations,” said Mehdi Quraishi, chief executive officer, ixtel.
“More enterprises are moving away from consumer Dropbox-type file sharing and mobile solutions due to security concerns. Accellion provides 100 percent on premise solution with the enterprise-level secure mobility and collaboration functionality that organisations need,” said Sapan Agarwal, commercial director, Middle East, Accellion. “Having recently established our EMEA headquarters in Dubai, we sought a partner in the UAE. With its rich IT security credentials and expertise in introducing new technologies to the UAE market, ixtel was the obvious choice for Accellion.”
