Unified security from the cloud recognized as 2013 Product of the Year

LOS ANGELES, CA –  September 25, 2013 – CloudAccess’ patented practice of integrated security capabilities managed in real time through centralized (REACT) control was selected as the winner of this year’s BIG Award by the technology consultancy Business Intelligence Group.

REACT (Realtime Event and Access Correlation Technology) is the only fully integrated technology security solution developed and managed from the multi-tenant cloud. The award-winning offering promotes a unified security deployment that leverages SIEM (security incident and event management), log archiving, identity management and access control in a comprehensive security-as-a-service bundle.

“The lives on on-site network security equipment are numbered for sure,” said Dawn Fordyce, managing director for the Business Intelligence Group. “All too often malicious code, hackers and other threats are making their way into local networks so stopping them in the cloud with the REACT Security Platform from Cloud Access makes total logical sense.”

According to CloudAccess, REACT creates the continuous, 24/7 visibility that answers the pressing questions ‘who is logging in,’ ‘what are the accessing,’ ‘do they have authorization,’ ‘when was an asset modified’ and ‘how does the action impact enterprise security?’

“We feel this is a significant step forward in enterprise security and are very grateful for the award,” said CloudAccess CEO Kevin Nikkhoo, “REACT removes the barriers in terms of resources, costs, time to market . Now companies both large and small can enhance mitigate risk and strengthen their overall security initiatives.”

The key to understanding REACT is it continuously monitors and collects all the relevant data that can affect the secure operations of an organization, correlates this information based on established security and compliance rules and determines if there is an actionable threat. Although a SIEM correlation engine sits at its heart, it manages the security for an entire enterprise including the administration of identity and access authorization from a “single pane of glass.”
