MONTREAL, QUEBEC (PRWEB) December 03, 2014
Simply Voting Inc. announced today that it has been awarded the Enterprise-Ready rating of Skyhigh CloudTrust for its internet voting system. Skyhigh Enterprise-Ready cloud services fully satisfy the most stringent requirements for service security, identity verification, data protection, legal protection, and business practices.
“Simply Voting is the first online elections provider to join the Skyhigh CloudTrust program, which recognizes cloud service providers who have earned its highest security rating. This is yet another independent validation of the quality, integrity and reliability of our infrastructure and services.” said Brian Lack, President of Simply Voting Inc. “This puts us in good company alongside leading cloud-based services such as Zendesk, Salesforce.com, Adobe EchoSign and Cisco WebEx.”
Skyhigh identifies and classifies thousands of cloud services and provides a detailed and objective evaluation of the enterprise-readiness of each cloud service based on a set of criteria developed in conjunction with the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA). The evaluation spans five categories:
- Data attributes
- User and device attributes
- Service attributes
- Business attributes
- Legal attributes
“Selecting an enterprise-ready service such as Simply Voting is critical, but performing product evaluations is expensive and time consuming, especially with the breadth of services available today,” said Rajiv Gupta, CEO of Skyhigh Networks. “The Skyhigh CloudTrust Rating streamlines the evaluation process by providing an objective and comprehensive evaluation of a service’s security controls and enterprise readiness.”
