Houston, Texas -- Bridgestone Europe has selected Accellion, Inc. as its file transfer solution provider. The Accellion Secure File Transfer Solution replaces older file transfer systems, based on disks and USB sticks, often sent through the public mail system. Such media often contained sensitive data for customers and suppliers. Exchanging the files by email was not an option due to the company's 10 MB limit on large email attachments.
â€œReducing the effect of large files on the email network was our main challenge. While sending all of our large media files on CDs avoided clogging the system, it was not a viable solution, because of time delays, expense and security concerns,â€ said Rodolphe Grandjean, senior manager ECM/CRM of Bridgestone Europe. â€œWe chose Accellion not only because it could send larger files without affecting our email server, but also because it integrated into Vignette for easy management of our digital assets, which was our main criterion. The data security, personalisation capability of the transfer interface and faster information dissemination were added benefits.â€
