CloudSigma, a public cloud infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) provider with advanced hybrid hosting solutions, announced today it has been awarded the Skyhigh CloudTrust™ rating of “enterprise-ready” for its CloudSigma Iaas Services. 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:

Skyhigh Enterprise-Ready cloud services fully satisfy the most stringent requirements for data protection, identity verification, service security, business practices, and legal protection. CloudSigma is excited to have received the Skyhigh CloudTrust™ acknowledgment for the measures undertaken to develop its security strategy.
“CloudSigma strives to dismiss all the security concerns and obstacles that may occur in a public cloud,” said Robert Jenkins, chief executive officer at CloudSigma. “Via the numerous security features we provide, customers can manage the security aspects of their deployment, for instance create and attach tailored firewall policies and monitor their networks easily. Last but not least, they are given the ability to install and run their preferred set of tools to maintain their desired level of security quick and easily”. The recognition of “Skyhigh CloudTrust rating of enterprise-ready” validates CloudSigma success in providing a trustworthy and customer-oriented cloud solution.
“Selecting an enterprise-ready service such as CloudSigma 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 Rating streamlines the evaluation process by providing an objective and comprehensive evaluation of a service’s security controls and enterprise readiness.”
