CloudPassage Recognized with Two Prestigious Accolades From SC Magazine

CloudPassage’s Halo® Cloud Security Platform Lauded for Technology Innovation and Excellence


SAN FRANCISCO—Dec. 17, 2012CloudPassage®, the leading cloud server security provider, has been named an Industry Innovator by SC Magazine in the Virtualization and Cloud Security category. CloudPassage was one of only two companies in the country to be recognized in this category, an honor that was bestowed by the SC Magazine product reviews lab team. 
In its December issue, SC Magazine describes what made Halo stand out from other solutions, noting that, “Overall, the innovation here is the moving of security functionality to the cloud, while addressing the unique challenges of cloud and virtual computing. Since Halo is delivered as SaaS, there is no special hardware required, and security administrators will feel right at home with the functionality.”
CloudPassage Halo, a server security platform purpose built for the cloud, bridges the gap between traditional perimeter-oriented data center security and security in dynamic cloud environments. Halo offers a broad range of features to address cloud security issues, such as dynamic firewall automation, two-factor authentication, server account management, configuration security, software vulnerability assessment, file integrity monitoring, intrusion detection, REST API access and more.
CloudPassage was also named a finalist in the Excellence category of the 2013 SC Awards for outstanding leadership and achievement in information security. More specifically, Halo was recognized as a Best Emerging Technology, which acknowledges superior security products that help customers tackle today’s most pressing IT challenges. The winner will be announced at the 2013 SC Awards U.S. ceremony to be held on Feb. 26, 2013 in San Francisco.
“This year’s SC Awards are possibly the stiffest competition we’ve ever had,” said Illena Armstrong, vice president and editorial director of SC Magazine. “As information security continues to grow in importance this has only added more weight to our program. Recognition for the tireless efforts of the men and women providing information security to the organizations around the world is paramount to SC Magazine and we look forward to celebrating them at the SC Awards gala.”
Hundreds of IT security companies nominated their solutions for consideration in the SC Awards, and entries are evaluated by a jury hand-picked by SC Magazine’s editorial team for their breadth of knowledge and experience in the information security industry.
