Accellion FTA Alternative

As Accellion File Transfer Appliance (FTA) is approaching its End of Life on April 30th, 2021, you may be looking for an alternative to take its place. TitanFile may be exactly what you’re searching for.

Unlike Accellion FTA, TitanFile is a web-based solution that enables you to share large, sensitive files over a secure cloud. No software installations are required. In addition, TitanFile is also as easy to use as email and is built with state-of-the-art security features to ensure that files remain private while they’re in transit and at rest. 

Below, you can dive deeper into 5 capabilities that make TitanFile an excellent alternative to Accellion FTA.


“We really gauge the success of a product by three main things: reliability, usage, and feedback from users. TitanFile has passed all of these metrics with flying colors.”

– Kevin Larsen, IT Manager at Gowling WLG (Canada) LLP

1. State-of-the-art-Security

TitanFile’s #1 priority is to keep your information secure and private, which is why we invest heavily into security and are always kept up-to-date with best practices.

TitanFile is SOC 2 compliant and incorporates state-of-the-art security features such as encryption in-transit and at-rest, granular access permissions, and multi-factor authentication to ensure that all communication through TitanFile remains confidential.

Data is also stored on ISO-certified data centers of your choice between the United States, Canada, or Europe.


2. High User Adoption

Companies that adopt TitanFile experience a high user adoption rate. When compared to Accellion FTA, TitanFile is much more intuitive for sending and receiving files. The platform is similar to email and just as easy to use.

Even if you’re new to TitanFile or not tech-savvy at all, you’ll be able to pick up the platform and start sharing files within minutes. First-time recipients will be able to easily access files and messages without requiring any assistance. This means that your staff will spend less time on support calls, and more time on tasks that matter.

3. Large File Transfer

In TitanFile, you can easily share files of any size, type, or volume. With no file size or storage limitations and the fastest upload speeds on the market, you can easily upload gigabytes of files within minutes.

TitanFile also allows you to upload entire folder structures directly from your computer without having to zip them beforehand. Using TitanFile’s built-in file management features, you can create new folders and rearrange files that are already uploaded to the platform.

4. Two-way Collaboration

Unlike Accellion FTA, TitanFile makes it easy to collaborate with your clients and other outside parties. TitanFile enables two-way file transfer, secure emails, and e-signatures.

There are also built-in, advanced file and folder management features that help you and your collaborators keep files organized.


5. Compliance

TitanFile helps you improve compliance with HIPAA, PIPEDA, GDPR, and PCI DSS by enabling two-way 100% compliant file sharing and data storage. When you share files through the platform, you’ll have confidence knowing that the files are encrypted in transit and at rest, and stored on your choice of a server in the US, Canada, or Europe.

TitanFile also keeps track of all activity using detailed audit logs so you have access to time-stamped records of when files were successfully delivered, accessed, or downloaded.
