PALO ALTO, Calif. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Accellion, Inc., the award-winning pioneer in providing enterprise-class, secure mobile file sharing solutions, today announced it received a “Strong Positive” rating in the Gartner MarketScope for “Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing” based on evaluation of its Accellion Secure Mobile File sharing solutions.1 This is the highest rating possible.
Accellion was evaluated against the following criteria: Overall Viability, Product/Service, Sales Execution/Pricing, Customer Experience, Market Strategy, Offering (Product) Strategy and Innovation.
The MarketScope notes that “enterprise file synchronization and sharing (EFSS) offerings enable productivity and collaboration for mobile workers who use multiple devices, such as smartphones and media tablets, in addition to PCs. Organizations must deploy EFSS services to secure enterprise information assets. Failure to provide these capabilities will subject organizations to information leakage threats caused by users who move data through uncontrolled personal cloud services.”
