NEW YORK, Sept. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- IntraLinks (NYSE: IL), a leading provider of critical information exchange solutions, today announced the general availability of IntraLinks Courier, a secure, ad-hoc solution for sharing files that is exclusively for the Enterprise. With IntraLinks Courier, business users may share files as simply as sending an email, control access to that content throughout its lifecycle, and reduce the compliance and security risk to the organization, essentially providing an extension of a company's Enterprise IT capabilities beyond the firewall.
Successful business is done through effective collaboration between partners, often on a global level. Today, much of that critical information exchange is performed using email or free, web-based file transfer tools because of their ease of use and pervasiveness. That means everyday documents with highly sensitive IP and confidential information leave the Enterprise without meeting the business requirements for compliance, security and control. This activity places the Enterprise at competitive and regulatory risk, and limits the effectiveness of expensive IT and security infrastructure.
Unlike consumer-based file transfer services, IntraLinks Courier gives business users complete control over the files they've shared. It prevents access by unintended recipients, and doesn't allow unauthorized forwarding, downloading or printing of shared files. IntraLinks Courier even delivers full audit and compliance reports to satisfy regulators and speed up the audit process. IntraLinks Courier is easy to set up and use because it doesn't require any additional hardware or software and is simply accessed via a browser or directly through Microsoft Outlook (via a plug-in). IntraLinks Courier also enables users to send files as large as 6GB.
"IntraLinks Courier combines the control and security of our existing critical information exchange solutions with the simplicity and ubiquity of email," said Tony Kender, executive vice president, global sales, IntraLinks. "The result is a secure means for Enterprises to share and receive information with business partners without the compliance and data loss risks that come when sending information via email, mail or file transfer services. With IntraLinks Courier, you don't have to compromise your most valuable assets in order to share information quickly and easily."
