JERSEY CITY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Datapipe, a leader in managed cloud services for the enterprise, today announced it was named the winner of a 2017 Cloud Computing Security Excellence Award in the cloud security category for its Datapipe Access and Audit Control for the Cloud (DAACC) solution. This is the third consecutive year TMC, a global integrated media company, has recognized Datapipe with this award.
“Datapipe is a trusted partner for enterprise organizations on their journey to the cloud,” said Robb Allen, Datapipe CEO and Founder. “A vital part of that mission is safeguarding our customers’ data across multiple cloud platforms. We developed DAACC as a best practice for multi-cloud security that provides a granular level of accountability for our customers’ environments.”
The Cloud Computing Security Excellence Award, presented by TMC’s Cloud Computing magazine, recognizes companies with cloud security and cloud-delivered security products that have most effectively leveraged cloud computing in their efforts to bring new, differentiated offerings to market.
Datapipe’s DAACC solution enables enterprises to take advantage of Datapipe’s managed public cloud services without having to share administrator-level credentials. DAACC provides an enhanced level of security and control through role-based access and tracking, clearly establishing and monitoring the accountability and actions of all users. DAACC is a seamless solution, requiring no extra steps or oversight after initial deployment. It also dramatically reduces the risk of a disruption of service or data breach due to unauthorized access of a managed cloud environment. Together, these features ensure reduced access to critical applications and provide an extra layer of security for users.
In the past year, Datapipe has made moves to further strengthen its global security by obtaining EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield certifications. These certifications enhance privacy protections when transferring data between the U.S. and the EU and Switzerland, and assure Datapipe customers that any personally identifiable information from these countries that is processed in the United States will be safeguarded and in accordance with data protection obligations. The company also extended SOC 2 Compliance to its global AWS environments, demonstrating comprehensive security practices for its global footprint of hybrid solutions.
“Recognizing leaders in the advancement of cloud computing, TMC and Cloud Computing magazine are proud to announce Datapipe Access and Audit Control for the Cloud as a recipient of the Cloud Computing Security Excellence Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “Datapipe is being honored for their achievement in bringing innovation and excellence to the market, while leveraging the latest technology trends.”
