CloudPassage, the leading Software Defined Security (SDSec) company, today announced that Halo Enterprise was awarded the SIIA CODiE Award for Best Security Solution for 2014.
The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software and digital content industries, announced CloudPassage’s win for the 2014 CODiE Award for Best Security Solution. A SIIA CODiE Award win is an especially prestigious honor. Each award winner was reviewed by a field of industry experts, whose evaluations determined the 125 finalists. SIIA members then reviewed the finalists and voted to select this year’s CODiE Awards Winners.
Halo®, CloudPassage’s security automation platform purpose-built for cloud environments, delivers security and compliance for large-scale, distributed cloud hosting operations. Halo handles any workload environment – public, private, hybrid cloud and traditional data centers – across all IaaS platforms, including IBM Softlayer, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Rackspace, Microsoft Azure, and HP CloudSystem Matrix. CloudPassage currently protects more than 400 production application deployments in the cloud, including a number of Fortune 1000 enterprises, and automates security for more than 10,000 new cloud workload instances each month.
“The CODiE Award is great validation for our approach to rethinking cloud security. Early on we saw that the cloud was breaking traditional security models. With Halo, we set out to create a solution that is specifically built for these complex, massively scalable, distributed environments,” said Carson Sweet, CEO of CloudPassage. “Receiving this award from the SIIA specifically was especially great validation given that over half of the enterprises that use Halo are large-scale software and SaaS providers. It’s very rewarding to know these companies value Halo’s ability to deliver mission-critical security and compliance for their SaaS environments.”
“SIIA’s 2014 Software CODiE Award winners’ have some of the most innovative, high-impact software products and services in the market,” said SIIA Vice President for the Software Division, Rhianna Collier. “We congratulate all of this year’s CODiE Award winners and thank them for the contributions they have made to the software and services industry.”
