McLEAN, Va. – March 21, 2013 – PerspecSys Inc., the leader in cloud data protection solutions for the enterprise, today announced that it’s Cloud Data Protection Gateway has been recognized by the 2013 SIIA CODiE Awards as a finalist in the Best Cloud Management Solution category. The SIIA CODiE Awards are the premier award for the software and information industries, and have been recognizing product excellence for 27 years. Winners will be honored on May 9 in San Francisco in conjunction with the industry’s most comprehensive ISV conference, All About the Cloud.
PerspecSys was selected as a finalist because its unique Gateway gives enterprises and public-sector organizations total control over their sensitive data while making their move to the cloud. Cloud end-users retain full functionality of popular cloud applications such as Oracle CRM On Demand and Salesforce.com, and the organization still meets its legal and industry data privacy and security compliance requirements.
Using patented technology, the PerspecSys Gateway intercepts sensitive data while it is still on-premise and replaces it with a random tokenized or encrypted value, rendering it meaningless should anyone outside of the company access the data while it is being processed or stored in the cloud. In addition, the PerspecSys solution offers the differentiated ability to preserve SaaS functionality – even when the data is tokenized or strongly encrypted – using encryption such as National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) listed FIPS 140-2 compliant modules. With PerspecSys, end-users have access to features and functions such as ability to search and sort data, send emails, and generate reports – even on sensitive data that has been tokenized or encrypted.
“The CODiE awards are unique and we are honored to be recognized by SIIA as a finalist in the competition,” said David Canellos, CEO of PerspecSys. “By combining live demonstrations with one-on-one discussions with the judges, the CODiEs enable companies to truly distinguish their products and services. For PerspecSys, that meant showing how our Gateway removes the biggest barriers to cloud adoption for today’s enterprises – data security and control – better than anyone else. And, this nomination is a great acknowledgement of that achievement.”
