CloudPassage, the leader in automated cloud security, today announced SC Magazine recognized CloudPassage Halo as a premier solution for comprehensive security visibility of public cloud infrastructures. CloudPassage is awarded a perfect five-out-of-five star rating for the third consecutive year, from SC Magazine, a leading source of information security industry guidance and insight for more than 25 years.

According to security technologist Matt Hreben at SC Magazine, CloudPassage’s strengths lie in its various versatile deployment models, as well as the ability to apply Halo to almost any workload form-factor. With no identified weaknesses, CloudPassage Halo is dubbed a “robust scalable product that can be implemented in almost any type of environment.” The ranking is based on a five-star scale in six categories including, features, documentation, value for money, performance, support and ease-of-use, all of which CloudPassage ranked at the top.

“In the age of word-of-mouth, review-checking and third-party validation, we know how important a strong review of a product can be for customers,” said Edward Smith, Director of Marketing at CloudPassage. “Enterprises across the board are rapidly adopting public cloud infrastructure, DevOps, and continuous delivery to drive speed and efficiency. The potential for security & compliance blind spots cannot be overstated. We want security professionals to know they can rely on CloudPassage Halo to provide comprehensive security visibility of their entire public cloud infrastructure.”

The award comes on the heels of CloudPassage’s recent launch of Microsoft Azure support in Halo Cloud Secure, providing users the visibility and configuration best practices for applications running in Microsoft Azure. Cloud Secure, part of the CloudPassage Halo platform, is an automated Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) solution that delivers visibility, protection and continuous compliance monitoring for compute, storage, database, networking and identity services. CloudPassage’s other solutions include Halo Server Secure and Halo Container Secure.
