ATLANTA, Oct. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CloudeAssurance, Inc. – an eFortresses Company – today released its fourth quarterly update of its Cloud Security Benchmark entitled "Top 10 CSPs" and added the report to its cloud security rating platform: CloudeAssurance. This platform enables the safe and secure adoption of Cloud Computing.
This is the latest report in response to customer demand and the very positive feedback received from industry experts relating to previous quarterly reports published in January, April and July 2013.
CloudeAssurance 1.2 is designed for global enterprise and government customers, cloud brokerages, cloud auditors and cloud service providers seeking to differentiate themselves by providing a higher level of security assurance and transparency to their customers and stakeholders.
With global cloud services revenue projected to reach $148.8 billion annually by 2014 (source: Gartner), Information Security will either become a nightmare or an enabler for cloud adoption, evidenced by the recent highly publicized cloud security breaches and continuously emerging threats.
As a SaaS platform, CloudeAssurance is the industry's first truly risk-intelligent rating, continuous education and continuous monitoring system to assure a cloud service provider's cloud security as well as 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 based 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, ISO 21827, CSA GRC Stack (CCM and CAIQ), HIPAA, NIST Cybersecurity Framework draft and EU Safe Harbor (just to name a few).
eFortresses and its CloudeAssurance platform have been recognized by Gartner as 1 of only 4 Cool Vendors in Risk Management and Compliance (http://www.gartner.com/id=2474316).
"Based on positive feedback received from our three previously released studies, our research team continues to undertake this independent study aimed at assessing the overall security posture of an ever increasing number of CSPs, which is now approaching 40. The goal of the study is to rank the Top 10 CSPs using the CloudeAssurance platform to assess their security posture by leveraging the information these CSPs themselves have made publicly available in relation to their cloud security," explained Taiye Lambo, Founder of CloudeAssurance, Inc.
An upcoming BrightTalk Webinar at 11:00 AM Eastern Time on Wednesday, October 2nd will reveal the most recent findings from the study live, while also providing a detailed look within the Cloud Security space and the company's attempts at filling the critical security and assurance gaps that exist within this industry.
