CloudPassage Wins 2016 Cloud Computing Security Excellence Award

San Francisco , November 8, 2016

CloudPassage announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named CloudPassage Halo as a 2016 Cloud Computing Security Excellence Award winner.

The Cloud Computing Security Excellence Award, presented by Cloud Computing Magazine, recognizes companies that have most effectively leveraged cloud computing in their efforts to bring new, differentiated offerings to market.

“Traditional security tools don’t work in today’s modern IT environments which are increasingly automated, face high rates of change and operate in hybrid environments,” said Robert Thomas, CEO of CloudPassage. “CloudPassage Halo automated security runs at DevOps speed providing a broad range of controls that work anywhere, at any scale. We appreciate this independent, third-party recognition of our product innovation and excellence.”

CloudPassage Halo is an on-demand, security-as-a-service (SaaS) platform that deploys in minutes and automates a broad range of security and compliance controls for workloads in any combination of public cloud, private cloud or data center environments. The result is fast, effective security that solves problems of visibility, microsegmentation, compliance and speed of deployment. CloudPassage was recently awarded three patents that extend the scope of its original, agent-based, agile security model, making it the first company to obtain a U.S. patent for universal cloud infrastructure security.

“Recognizing leaders in the advancement of cloud computing, TMC and Cloud Computing magazine are proud to announce CloudPassage Halo as a recipient of the Cloud Computing Security Excellence Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “CloudPassage is being honored for their achievement in bringing innovation and excellence to the market, while leveraging the latest technology trends.”
