CloudAccess Recognized in Multiple Categories as UP Award Finalist

CloudAccess, a security-as-a-service leader was recognized for its technological and industry-changing achievements in cloud-based security with a series of award nominations for the upcoming UP-START Awards sponsored by the UP 2012 Cloud Conference.

The year-old Los Angeles-based company is a finalist in four distinctive categories including Best Big Data Solution, Best Cloud Service Provider, Best Cloud Automation, Best Data Center Infrastructure Management Solution.  Final voting will happen October 12-19 ahead of the December conference.

“This puts the CloudAccess brand next to other recognized major players in the cloud security space. That we are a finalist says a great deal about how far we have come in such a short time,” said CloudAccess CEO Kevin Nikkhoo.

CloudAccess was nominated for its scalable cloud-based security offerings which provide comprehensive and cost-effective IT asset protection for such enterprise needs as SIEM, Log Management, Single Sign On, WebSSO, Identity Management and Access Management. CloudAccess is one of a very elite few developers of such an inclusive integration of security tools deployed and managed from the cloud.

“Security-as-a-service is framing the next generation of security. As most IT professionals are comfortable with the concepts and practices of SaaS and other cloud computing methods, CloudAccess is proving there is a  safe, secure and benefit-laden means to deliver enterprise-scaled security from the cloud that is cost effective, regulation compliant and industrial strength,” Nikkhoo added.

The 2012 UP-START Cloud Awards are now established in the cloud community as the de-facto recognition platform to cultivate the understanding, appreciation and advancement of the contribution of cloud computing to the business and technology community.

Last month Cloud Access was named Start Up of the Year by the Business Intelligence Group “Big Award.” Earlier this summer CloudAccess was also named an AlwaysON Top 250 company.

“We, as IT professionals, already accept and embrace different cloud-based options. We support dozens of applications in the cloud—some are even of enterprise scale and proprietary in nature. Security-as-a-service is just part of that evolution,” Nikkhoo said. “And CloudAccess is proud to be recognized as an innovator in that space.”
