SAN FRANCISCO , January 28, 2014

CloudPassage®, the leading cloud infrastructure security company, announced today being named Security Innovation of the Year for 2013-2014 by the Cloud Awards Program for its genuinely innovative approach to cloud security. More than 200 organizations entered the Cloud Awards, with entries coming from across the globe and including Europe, the US and Middle East.

“We are extremely pleased to endorse CloudPassage as a cloud services provider giving added value to its clients, disrupting business models and leveraging cloud technologies to be the best of the best,” said Larry Johnson Cloud Awards organizer.

Proven in hundreds of production cloud deployments at a scale of up to tens-of-thousands of cloud devices, CloudPassage Halo Enterprise addresses the top two inhibitors to cloud adoption – security and compliance. Purpose-built for the cloud, CloudPassage uses big-data analytics to automate security and compliance for large-scale, distributed cloud infrastructure environments, enabling companies to seamlessly adopt the cloud.

“Enterprises are adopting cloud computing at an incredible pace, but security and compliance still represent huge obstacles. Traditional solutions are designed for set wwperimeters and don’t work for the ephemeral nature of the cloud — placing significant burdens on security and operations teams,” said Carson Sweet, CEO of CloudPassage. “We employ a distributed solution to automate and integrate security into dynamic cloud environments, lifting the burden and providing greater visibility.”

Identifying and celebrating excellence in the field of cloud computing, the Cloud Awards program recognizes excellence in cloud computing and encourages entries from across the entire globe – the US, Canada, Australasia and EMEA regions. Entrants can be from organizations of any size, including start-ups
