PacketZoom partners with Accellion to boost sharing of files via mobile enterprise apps

PacketZoom, the mobile app acceleration company, has partnered with hybrid and private cloud secure content provider, Accellion Inc., to optimise the sharing and editing of large files and improve Accellion’s kiteworks mobile application.

The partnership caters to enterprises which require a more robust and speedy exchange of files to boost employee efficiency when collaborating.

Cliff White, CTO of Accellion, says:

“By reducing round trips over high latency and error prone mobile/Wi-Fi connections, Accellion sees in PacketZoom’s technology the means to transmit data and content from the origin server much faster and much more reliably than with legacy network based stacks. PacketZoom’s network analytics should also provide great value to kiteworks and our customers by giving insights into how end users are interacting with content.”

Essentially, the PacketZoom technology will speed up content downloads for Accellion. PacketZoom’s Mobile Expresslane solution is currently being tested by Accellion’s kiteworks mobile application to potentially double download speeds.

Jonathan Yaron, Chairman and CEO of Accellion, explains that businesses are creating more content than ever before, which increases demand to share and collaborate with partners.

“By accelerating download speeds at the last mile, PacketZoom and Accellion are developing an innovative solution that addresses the challenges of delivering larger files, such as medical images for collaborative healthcare, or big data sets for financial analysis. PacketZoom’s vision – and the talented team they have assembled to execute on this vision – is just the kind of development partnership Accellion looks for to enhance our products and serve our customers’ needs. Together, I anticipate we will be able to significantly improve how enterprise employees share richer content and collaborate more effectively.”
