Accellion, Inc., the leading provider of private cloud solutions for secure file sharing and collaboration that ensure data security and compliance, today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the “Leaders” quadrant of the 2015 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing report.
“We’re delighted to be placed once again in the ‘Leaders’ quadrant of the Magic Quadrant,” said Yorgen Edholm, CEO of Accellion. “The world’s leading corporations and government agencies find themselves increasingly under attack from cyber-attacks and rely on Accellion solutions to ensure data security and compliance.

This Magic Quadrant represents a snapshot of the Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing (EFSS) market, as of July 2015. The Magic Quadrant for EFSS solutions is intended to help CIOs and business and IT leaders that are developing their EFSS strategies to assess the right products or services to support them.
Enterprise file synchronization and sharing (EFSS) refers to a range of on-premises or cloud-based capabilities that enables individuals to synchronize and share documents, photos, videos and files across mobile devices, such as smartphones, tablets and PCs. Sharing can happen between people (for example, partners and customers) within or outside the organization, or on a mobile device, as data sharing among apps. Access to files in enterprise repositories (such as file servers and content platforms) from mobile devices or remote PCs extends user productivity and collaboration to modern use cases. Security and collaboration support are critical aspects for enterprises to adopt EFSS.
