Accellion Introduces One-Click Compliance Reports to Accelerate Regulatory Audits

New Reports Help CISOs Quickly Prove Full Visibility and Control of Sensitive Information for Compliance with GDPR, HIPAA, GLBA, ITAR and other Regulations

PALO ALTO, Calif., April 18, 2018 – Accellion, Inc., the leading platform that enables organizations to securely share sensitive information beyond enterprise borders while maintaining the controls and visibility needed to demonstrate compliance, today announced one-click compliance reports that significantly streamline how businesses demonstrate compliance with regulators.

Businesses across all industries need accurate compliance reports to not only demonstrate compliance with industry-specific regulations such as HIPAA, GLBA and NIST 800-171, but also with broader legislation like Sarbanes-Oxley or the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Organizations using the Accellion secure file sharing and governance platform can now demonstrate compliance with these and other regulations with the click of a button. A single click generates detailed compliance reports that provide visibility into a system’s configurations and security settings and flag any issues impacting compliance.

“Regulators expect organizations to protect their customers’ personally identifiable information,” said Yaron Galant, chief product officer with Accellion. “With one-click compliance reports, organizations can efficiently prove to auditors and regulators that every file that comes into, moves across, or leaves the organization does so in a secure and compliant manner.”

The Accellion platform provides businesses control over their customer data and other sensitive information, including who is accessing it and with whom they’re sharing it. All file activity is captured, logged and auditable with Accellion’s detailed compliance reports.  

For example, healthcare providers, payers and business associates can leverage the Accellion platform to monitor and prove through accurate compliance reports that adequate administrative, physical and technical safeguards in place to comply with HIPAA. Organizations can satisfy those requirements with Accellion features such as file level encryption, user authentication controls, DLP integration and ensuring inactive user accounts do not remain accessible.

GDPR compliance also mandates strict information exchange measures, but also requires businesses to transfer or delete customer data upon request and provide proof. Because Accellion provides unified access to where customer data is stored – whether on-prem in systems like SharePoint, in the cloud with solutions such as OneDrive for Business and Dropbox, or in critical business applications like Salesforce – this information can be located, moved or deleted simply and quickly.
