This study enables cloud consumers to evaluate which cloud providers have the best cloud assurance score and history, a measure of cloud trust on which they can depend.
ATLANTA, July 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – CloudeAssurance, Inc. – an eFortresses Company today released its third quarterly Cloud Security Benchmark: Top 10 CSPs and added this report to its cloud security rating system platform: CloudeAssurance. This platform enables safe and secure adoption of Cloud Computing!
This latest release is in response to customer demand and positive feedback received from industry experts relating to the last two study reports published in January and April 2013.
CloudeAssurance 1.2 is designed for global enterprise and government customers, cloud brokerages, cloud auditors and cloud service providers that want to differentiate themselves by providing higher levels of security assurance and transparency to their customers and stakeholders.
With the global cloud services revenue projected to reach $148.8 billion globally by 2014 (source: Gartner), Information Security will either become a nightmare or an enabler for cloud adoption, particularly with recent increases in highly publicized cloud security breaches.
CloudeAssurance SaaS platform is the industry's first truly risk-intelligent rating, continuous education and continuous monitoring system assuring cloud service provider's cloud security and governance, risk and compliance. CloudeAssurance protects customers by measuring cloud service providers' ability to securely deliver services in accordance with industry best practices, standards, and regulatory compliance.
The CloudeAssurance platform is standards neutral and can be utilized by organizations to self-assess or independently assess, score and benchmark their information security program against standards such as PCI-DSS 2.0, FedRAMP,ISO 27001, CSA GRC Stack (CCM and CAIQ), HIPAA and EU Safe Harbor (just to name a few).
eFortresses CloudeAssurance has been recognized by Gartner as 1 of only 4 cool vendors in risk management and compliance in 2013 http://www.gartner.com/technology/reprints.do?id=1-1FJUH7M&ct=130509&st=sg.
"Based on positive feedback received from our previously released study reports, our research team continues to undertake this independent study aimed at assessing the overall security posture of some of these CSPs. The goal of the study is to rank the Top 10 CSPs using the CloudeAssurance platform to assess their security posture, leveraging information that these CSPs themselves have made publicly available in relation to their cloud security," explained Taiye Lambo, Founder of CloudeAssurance, Inc.
