Intralinks Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: IL), a leading, global SaaS provider of secure enterprise content collaboration solutions, announces growing demand for Intralinks VIA as the focus on security, data privacy and regulatory requirements continues to grow. Intralinks VIA customers include: Midwest BankCentre, KPMG Dublin, Virgin Money, and Arden Asset Management in financial services; Cairn Energy, Essar Oil, Topaz Energy, Juwi Energy, and Sadara Chemical Company in the energy sector; as well as Rotech Healthcare, Nippon Steel, and the New York Giants.
According to research from the Ponemon Institute and Intralinks, most organisations are failing to respond to the escalating risk of ungoverned file sharing practices among employees, who routinely breach IT policies and place company data in jeopardy. Among more than 1,000 global IT security professionals in the survey, almost half (49 percent) acknowledge that their company lacks visibility and control over employees use of file sync and share applications. Only 54 percent say their IT department is involved in the adoption of new cloud-based technologies and services. Recent action by regulators are also escalating concerns. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Civil Rights handed out a $218,000 fine to a Boston-based hospital for HIPAA violations resulting from unsanctioned use of a file sharing application.
“Demand for secure collaboration solutions is rising, especially in regulated industries like financial services, healthcare, and the energy sector,” said Daren Glenister, field CTO at Intralinks. “Intralinks combines the stringent security required by IT departments with an easy-to-use solution for employees. We’re excited to see companies choosing Intralinks VIA to protect their confidential information.”
“Our bank is in the process of expanding through acquisitions, and we needed a fast and flexible way to scale our secure information sharing and collaboration capabilities,” said Larry Albrecht, senior vice president – operations and chief information security officer for Midwest BankCentre. “Intralinks’ solutions were already in use by a lot of our business partners. When one of your regulators recommends a product, you know it’s secure.”
