MCLEAN, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/21/14 -- Perspecsys, the leader in enterprise cloud data control protection gateway solutions, announced today it has been recognized for a second straight year as one of 2014's Hottest Emerging Technology Vendors by CRN, the top news source for solution providers and the IT channel. The annual Emerging Vendors list identifies up-and-coming technology vendors that have introduced innovative new products, creating opportunities for channel partners in North America to create high-margin, cutting-edge solutions for their customers.
Perspecsys was recognized for its AppProtex Cloud Data Protection Gateway, which delivers data security and cloud discovery capabilities to allow organizations to meet the strict legal and industry compliance, residency and security requirements they must satisfy in order to safeguard sensitive business data. In today's highly digitized and interconnected world, the most common fear among enterprises considering adopting the cloud is losing control over their data, specifically sensitive customer or government-related data. Perspecsys directly addresses this unease by providing these enterprises with what they desire most: total control of their sensitive data.
The AppProtex Cloud Data Protection Gateway gives organizations the ability to understand how employees are using cloud applications and take the necessary steps to protect data before it leaves their network. All sensitive information is replaced with a token or encrypted value while inside the enterprise's firewall; prior to going to the cloud for processing and storage. Sensitive data never leaves the organization's control in any format, so any information a cybercriminal or an unauthorized party obtains is either tokenized or encrypted, rendering it meaningless. Of equal importance, the Gateway ensure that users of cloud applications are not impacted - they can still perform functions like searching, sorting or reporting on encrypted or tokenized data within their cloud applications while the enterprise benefits from complete control of their information.
"Our goal, first and foremost, is to provide a secure environment for enterprises doing business in the cloud by putting the control they seek back into their hands," said David Canellos, CEO of Perspecsys. "This recognition by CRN as one of 2014's hottest emerging technology vendors further validates our Gateway's value and highlights the success we are having helping enterprises move to the cloud in a secure and compliant way."
"Solution providers are always on the hunt for the next big technology trend so that they can bring new solutions to their customers before they even know they need them. These vendors are on the forefront of IT innovation and are offering products and services that channel partners can use to stay ahead of the competition," said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company, publisher of CRN. "We congratulate 2014's Emerging Vendors for creating the next wave of technology that will drive the IT industry forward and for opening the door to new, unique solutions from the IT channel."
Companies included in CRN's 2014 Emerging Vendors list were founded in 2008 or later and are actively working with channel partners in North America. The list, along with information about each vendor, will be published in CRN's August 2014 issue and will also be available online at www.crn.com.
