CloudLock Named “Cool Vendor” by Leading Analyst Firm
Report Highlights Innovative, Impactful, and Intriguing Vendors in Cloud Security Services
WALTHAM, Mass.— May 31, 2011 — CloudLock, the only company that delivers cloud data security solutions for organizations using Google Apps, announced that it has been included in the Gartner, Inc. report, “Cool Vendors in Cloud Security Services, 2011. ” The report highlights four companies that are “offering innovated cloud-based approaches to security.”
According to Google, more than three million businesses currently run Google Apps. IT professionals and chief information security officers need more efficient and effective ways to protect corporate data on the Google Apps platform. CloudLock’s innovative CloudLock for Google Apps solution extends the cloud-based collaboration and productivity suite’s security features to identify internal, external and public file exposure, fix permissions for any document or user, transfer document ownership between accounts and ensure regulatory compliance.
“Many businesses are unaware of the effects of cloud applications, like Google Docs, on data governance and security initiatives,” said Gil Zimmermann, CEO and co-founder of CloudLock. “We believe CloudLock’s recognition in the Gartner ‘Cool Vendors in Cloud Security Services’ report serves as confirmation that start-ups and enterprises alike can benefit from proven data security technologies that provide them with the confidence to reap the full business and cost benefits of their Google Apps implementation.”
This announcement comes on the heels of CloudLock’s recent unveiling of CloudLock Protected Folders at Google I/O, which extends CloudLock’s set of data security solutions for Google Apps to include records retention for Google Docs so critical information is never misused or deleted.
