ClickSoftware Technologies Ltd, which develops computer programs for companies to manage their workforce, and whose largest single investor is George Soros, announced it has been awarded the Skyhigh CloudTrust rating of enterprise-ready for its cloud services offerings. ClickSoftware’s cloud services meet the most stringent requirements for data protection, identity verification, service security, business practices and legal protection.
The Skyhigh CloudTrust Rating provides an objective and comprehensive evaluation of a service’s security controls and enterprise readiness based on a detailed set of criteria developed in conjunction with the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA).
This is badly needed good news for a company which has had many problems recently. Its stock tumbled last year and ClickSoftware was forced to change its Ceo.
“We are honored to add Skyhigh’s stamp of approval to our cloud services practices, ” said Udi Keidar, VP of Cloud Services at ClickSoftware. “Our cloud enterprise customers trust us to safeguard their data while consuming a streamlined and secure service. We constantly work to maintain the highest levels of protection to serve our customers of all sizes.”
Skyhigh identifies and classifies thousands of cloud services and provides an objective and detailed evaluation of the enterprise-readiness of each cloud service based on a detailed 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 and legal attributes.
“Selecting an enterprise-ready service such as ClickSoftware 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[TM] streamlines the evaluation process by providing an objective and comprehensive evaluation of a service’s security controls and enterprise readiness.”
