Accellion—the Secure Way to Transfer Large Files

Another tool in our arsenal to fight against cybercrime is the Accellion Secure File Transfer Appliance—or simply, “Accellion.”  Accellion was implemented at the University in 2008.  This appliance provides a secure way to send large files to recipients both inside and outside the University without affecting your email storage quota.  Accellion is available for use by all University faculty, staff, students and affiliates who have active myUM Directory accounts.
