Accellion Use Case "COVID-19"

Initial situation

In the current exceptional situation, even companies with critical infrastructures are forced to exchange information and data with their employees outside their familiar environment and with new contacts, organisations and/or authorities.

Due to the current "crisis situation", in our case* the following tasks arose overnight:

  • Employees of different organisations have to work together from different locations and networks and need shared access to information and data, some of which is highly sensitive
  • The exchange of information and data must be made possible outside the own, secure and homogeneous system
  • Compliance and transparency regarding access and activities must be ensured
  • It must be possible to control the flow of information and use of data at all times
  • Daily reports, minutes, proposals, measures, etc. must be shared quickly, easily and at the highest security level with external bodies, authorities and other companies
  • Different file types, formats and file sizes must be easily exchanged by different devices and people.
