CloudLock Selected as Finalist for MIT Sloan CIO Symposium’s Innovation Showcase 2013


Cambridge, MA – (April 29, 2013) – The 10th Annual MIT Sloan CIO Symposium has announced CloudLock as one of ten finalists for the 2013 Innovation Showcase as its Collaboration Information Security Suite represents a cutting edge B2B solution that combines strong value and innovation to enterprise IT. CloudLock will receive key exposure to many of the world’s most creative and influential IT executives at the Symposium on May 22, 2013.

After careful consideration, the Innovation Showcase Judges, (consisting of MIT faculty, entrepreneurs, and early-stage investors) chose CloudLock as it:

  • Is a start-up with less than $10 million in 2012 revenue or Series A VC funding
  • Is selling B2B or B2C enterprise IT solutions to CIOs or corporate departments
  • Shows innovation as well as potential impact on the top and bottom lines

“We believe that in 5 years, most organizations will be heavily leveraging and dependant on SaaS applications and business platforms. As a leader in public cloud security, we are very proud of being among the MIT CIO Symposium finalists. This indicates a growing trend in the industry and among CIOs, who are now paying attention to all aspects of cloud security, and is consistent with the traction we see with our customers, including dozens of Fortune 500 enterprises,“ said Gil Zimmermann, CEO and Co-Founder of CloudLock.

CloudLock’s Security-as-a-Service is a suite of information security applications, allowing enterprises to adopt SaaS platforms by applying the appropriate security safeguards in place. Those safeguards are needed to meet data privacy regulations, protect sensitive data stored in messaging and collaboration repositories (e.g IP, PCI, PII ) and protect users’ accounts and identity from being compromised . By deploying CloudLock, enterprises can significantly increase the ROI of their investments in their SaaS strategy.

“We are pleased to award these top ten Innovation Showcase finalists, as their technologies represent cutting edge solutions with strategic value,” said David L. Verrill, Executive Director of the MIT Center for Digital Business, and the Co-chair of the Innovation Showcase. “The Symposium provides these early-stage companies a foundation to demonstrate their solutions that are architecting the future of technology and creates an environment for valuable partnership opportunities.”
