Baltimore, MD — October 6, 2014 — EZShield announced today that it has been awarded the Skyhigh CloudTrustTM rating of enterprise-ready for its EZShield Total Protection Platform. Skyhigh Enterprise-Ready cloud services fully satisfy the most stringent requirements for data protection, identity verification, service security, business practices and legal protection.
“Establishing standards for cloud providers fulfills a critical need in the marketplace much like other security and compliance guidelines do for other forms of data storage and handling. This certification represents how seriously we take data security and work to address it from every aspect. We are honored to add Skyhigh’s stamp of approval to our cloud storage practices,” said Darrell Laffoon, VP of Technology at EZShield.
Skyhigh identifies and classifies thousands of cloud services and provides an objective and detailed evaluation of the enterprise-readiness of each cloud service based on a detailed set of criteria developed in conjunction with the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA).
The evaluation spans five categories:
- Data attributes
- User and device attributes
- Service attributes
- Business attributes
- Legal attributes
“Selecting a enterprise-ready service such as EZShield is critical, but performing product evaluations is expensive and time consuming, especially with the breadth of services available today,” said Rajiv Gupta, CEO of Skyhigh Networks. “The Skyhigh CloudTrust RatingTM streamlines the evaluation process by providing an objective and comprehensive evaluation of a service’s security controls and enterprise readiness.”
