Accellion, a provider of private cloud solutions for secure file sharing and collaboration that ensure data security and compliance, recently announced that it has added new security and governance capabilities to its kiteworks secure content platform.

Accellion's kiteworks governance package is designed to assist enterprise organizations in demonstrating compliance with legal and regulatory demands. 

Key capabilities include:

e-Discovery: Enables enterprise organizations to comply with legal requests for discovery by collecting relevant documents and metadata, archiving all relevant content, retaining auditable logs, and enabling easy export of content tagged for e-Discovery to legal teams.

DLP integration: Provides for high levels of governance and compliance by monitoring all shared documents based on corporate policy and quarantining any documents containing sensitive data to prevent data leakage. Integrates with leading DLP solutions including Symantec, WebSense, Code Green, Fidelis, RSA, and others.

User-friendly DRM: Prevents file downloads with view-only roles and deters unauthorized forwarding and printing via watermarking. Allows withdrawal of files even after they are sent.

Policy-based content retention: Enforces corporate-defined content retention policies to ensure appropriate preservation and deletion of documents.
