PerspecSys Wins 2012 Cloud Computing Excellence Award for Its Innovative Cloud Data Protection Gateway

PerspecSys Inc., the leader in cloud data security solutions for the enterprise, today announced it has been selected by TMC, a global, integrated media company, as a 2012 Cloud Computing Excellence Award winner. Presented by Cloud Computing Magazine, the Cloud Computing Excellence Awards recognize companies that have most effectively leveraged cloud computing in their efforts to bring new, differentiated offerings to market.

PerspecSys was chosen as a winner because its Cloud Data Protection Gateway eliminates two of the biggest barriers that prevent companies from embracing cloud computing: data security and data control. The PerspecSys Gateway uses a unique, patent-pending approach that features strong encryption and tokenization technologies to help enterprise and public-sector organizations secure sensitive data – keeping it on-site and within their complete control when using popular cloud applications (e.g. Oracle CRM On Demand, Salesforce.com). The Gateway not only improves an organization’s overall mission-critical cloud security, but also helps meet strict legal and industry data privacy, residency and regulatory compliance requirements – making the move to the cloud a reality for business that once thought it impossible.

“Receiving a Cloud Computing Excellence Award is truly the icing on the cake for what has become an amazing year of growth and recognition for PerspecSys,” said David Canellos, CEO of PerspecSys. “We’re gratified to see our Cloud Data Protection Gateway recognized as one of the solutions driving the cloud computing industry forward. While more and more companies are looking to adopt the cloud, many are still running into huge roadblocks when it comes to data security, residency and compliance. PerspecSys removes those barriers – and this award is acknowledgement of our success to-date and the exciting opportunities ahead.”

The PerspecSys Gateway works by intercepting sensitive data while it is still on-premise, replacing the data with a random tokenized or encrypted value, rendering it meaningless should anyone outside of the company access the data while it is being processed or stored in the cloud. In addition, the PerspecSys solution offers the differentiated ability to preserve cloud application functionality – even when the data is tokenized or strongly encrypted – using encryption such as National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) listed FIPS 140-2 compliant modules. With PerspecSys, end users have access to features and functions such as ability to search and sort data, send e-mails, and generate reports – even on sensitive data that has been tokenized or encrypted.

“PerspecSys has been recognized for their achievement in bringing innovation and excellence in the market while leveraging the latest technology trends to create an enriched user experience,” said Erik Linask, Group Editorial Director, TMC.

“Recognizing leaders in the advancement of cloud computing, TMC is proud to announce PerspecSys as a recipient of the second annual Cloud Computing Excellence Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “PerspecSys’ Cloud Data Protection Gateway has demonstrated innovation as well as the ability to improve the cloud.”

Recently, WebRTC has a lot of eyes from market. The use cases of WebRTC are expanding - video chat, online education, online health care etc. Not only for human-to-human communication, but also IoT use cases such as machine to human use cases can be seen recently. One of the typical use-case is remote camera monitoring. With WebRTC, people can have interoperability and flexibility for deploying monitoring service. However, the benefit of WebRTC for IoT is not only its convenience and interopera...
WebRTC is great technology to build your own communication tools. It will be even more exciting experience it with advanced devices, such as a 360 Camera, 360 microphone, and a depth sensor camera. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Masashi Ganeko, a manager at INFOCOM Corporation, will introduce two experimental projects from his team and what they learned from them. "Shotoku Tamago" uses the robot audition software HARK to track speakers in 360 video of a remote party. "Virtual Teleport" uses a...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...
