Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) June 7, 2010
Sentrigo, Inc., the innovator in database security software, has been named a finalist in the 2010 Cloud Computing World Series Awards. Sentrigo’s Hedgehog Enterprise solution was selected in the ‘Best Security Solution’ category which recognizes companies with superior technology that help customers mitigate risk and improve their overall security and compliance posture.
“We are honored that Sentrigo’s Hedgehog Enterprise has been nominated as a finalist in the 2010 Cloud Computing World Series Awards in the ‘Best Security Solution’ category. This industry-wide recognition is further validation that our software only, host-based solution provides enterprises with the best-in-breed real-time database monitoring, auditing and breach prevention currently available on the market,” said Andy Feit, vice president of marketing for Sentrigo. “If an organization is considering adopting a cloud computing architecture, Hedgehog Enterprise is crucial for meeting regulatory compliance requirements as well as ensuring that sensitive data is secured and database attacks are prevented. Within a matter of minutes, the software can be provisioned and fully functional, providing peace of mind in minimal time.”
Industry experts predict cloud computing technology deployments to grow significantly over the next year. Organizations that implement cloud technology and manage their databases in virtual environments, however, increase their risk of exposing highly-sensitive data to a broad base of internal and external attacks. Sentrigo's Hedgehog Enterprise database activity monitoring and intrusion prevention solution, is able to work well in the dynamic, distributed environment of the cloud, owing to the autonomous nature of its sensor technology. By leveraging Sentrigo’s scalable and cost-effective database security and compliance technology, organizations can move to a cloud model and protect sensitive data from unauthorized access, greatly reducing the threat of a serious breach.
Mark Johnstone, director of the Cloud Computing World Forum conference, stated that the quality of this year’s entries for the awards was extremely high, and tough choices had to be made when selecting the finalists: “We are delighted with the number of organizations entering the awards this year,” he said. “The quantity and quality of entries has been extremely high which can only be very positive for the future of cloud computing. Some very difficult decisions had to be made in selecting the finalists for each category."
Winners of the Cloud Computing World Series Awards will be announced at an award ceremony to be held at the Olympia Conference Centre in London, on June 29th.
