CipherCloud Named a 2012 Emerging Vendor by CRN and UBM Channel
Cloud Encryption Helps Partners Break Barriers to Cloud Adoption and Grow Business in Large Enterprises
SAN JOSE, Calif., August 30, 2012
CipherCloud, the leader in cloud encryption, today announced it has been selected by UBM Channel and CRN as a 2012 Emerging Technology Vendor. The annual list features the most innovative vendors that not only deliver technology that is easy to use, but can generate the high margins solution providers require. The vendors that make up the CRN Emerging Technology Vendor list were founded in 2006 or later, have revenue under $1 billion and have an active U.S. channel strategy.
Among these Emerging Vendors are companies that have already established themselves in their market segment and others that are already making an impact despite a recent launch. Each organization on the list represents a new partnership and go-to-market opportunity for solution providers looking to identify new vendor partners.
CipherCloud eliminates the data privacy, residency, security, and regulatory compliance concerns that have held back cloud adoption in businesses and government. CipherCloud provides a single platform to secure sensitive customer data across multiple public and private cloud applications, without impacting functionality or performance. Available as a service or virtual appliance, CipherCloud Gateway delivers a comprehensive set of security controls including format and operations preserving encryption and tokenization, cloud audit and activity monitoring, and malware detection. CipherCloud secures multiple cloud applications including Salesforce, Force.com, Chatter, Office 365, Gmail, and Amazon AWS.
“Emerging doesn’t mean what it used to,” said Kelley Damore, VP, editorial director, UBM Channel. “And this collection of up-and-comers and new-to-the-game vendors is on an upward trajectory that a host of young companies that preceded them could barely imagine. With new innovations like cloud computing and virtualization speeding up the pace of innovation, and technology mainstays like storage and networking branching off into new directions, this list encapsulates a tectonic technology shift where the recently founded are starting to rule the roost and become household names much more quickly than in the past. We congratulate each vendor on the list and congratulate them for placing an emphasis on innovation and ease of use, features that are the hallmark of any successful channel offering.”
Final selection to the Emerging Technology Vendor list was made by the CRN editorial team after a review of submitted information. To view the list and learn more visit www.CRN.com.
“Research shows 72 percent of enterprises still don’t know how a cloud service provider secures their data. It’s no wonder then enterprises have concerns over cloud data privacy, residency, compliance, and security,” said Dev Ghoshal, SVP Field Operations of CipherCloud. “There’s a huge opportunity for partners specializing in clouds like Salesforce, Google Gmail, and Microsoft Office 365 to grow their business with the CipherCloud Connect Partner Program. Being named a UBM Channel and CRN 2012 Emerging Technology Vendor is recognition of the huge opportunity ahead for our partners to accelerate cloud adoption.”
