Skyhigh introduces CloudTrust security ratings

By

US-based Skyhigh aims to help quash qualms about cloud providers' security practices with a new rating scheme.

The Skyhigh CloudTrust program provides an objective and comprehensive assessment of a cloud service's security capabilities, company officials stated.

The program uses a detailed set of criteria developed in conjunction with the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA).

The CSA already operates its own STAR Certification program which is based on ISO/IEC 27001 and the CSA Cloud Controls Matrix.

STAR Certification assessments are carried out by "an accredited CSA certification body" - at present the BSI (Britain's national standards body) appears to be the only organisation to be accredited.

Skyhigh's CloudTrust program takes into consideration more than 50 attributes in five categories: data, user and device, service, business, and legal. A combination of automated processes and manual research is used in these evaluations.

Cloud services receiving the highest possible rating are awarded the Skyhigh Enterprise-Ready seal.

Recipients include Adobe (EchoSign), Box, Cisco (WebEx), Salesforce.com, ServiceNow, Yammer, and Zuora.

Zuora senior vice president of engineering Marc Aronson said "Zuora is a cloud service that businesses trust to process billions of dollars in transactions every day. We are constantly aware of the mission critical role we play in the day-to-day operations of hundreds of enterprises across the globe, and the strict security requirements that our customers have.

"We have strived to make security a top priority in everything we do, and are honored to earn Skyhigh's Enterprise-Ready rating for our service."

Skyhigh Networks founder and CEO Rajiv Gupta said "There's no shortage of companies claiming that they are enterprise-ready but assessing these claims is a very expensive and time-consuming process, and IT teams are not staffed to handle the tens of requests every week."

"With the Skyhigh CloudTrust program, we are bringing third-party objectivity and transparency to streamline the evaluation process, so that IT can rapidly provide their employees with the most secure services on the market."
