Accellion, Inc., the pioneer in providing secure enterprise solutions that improve mobile productivity, announced today that it has been awarded the Skyhigh CloudTrust™ rating of Enterprise-Ready for kiteworks, its mobile file sharing solution. Skyhigh Enterprise-Ready cloud services are the select cloud services that fully satisfy the most stringent requirements for data protection, identity verification, service security, business practices, and legal protection.

“Accellion is the leading provider of private cloud mobile file sharing and collaboration solutions for corporations and government agencies around the world. Our mission is delivering solutions to enable mobile business productivity while ensuring security and compliance,” said Vidhya Ranganathan, SVP of Product, Accellion. “We’re thrilled that kiteworks has been recognized by Skyhigh Networks as one of the most secure cloud solutions on the market today.”

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 is derived from more than 50 attributes, which span five categories:

  • Data attributes: Data encryption in transit, data multi-tenancy, etc.
  • User and device attributes: Anonymous use policy, identify federation method, etc.
  • Service attributes: Pen testing, know service compromise history, etc.
  • Business attributes: Service hosting locations, compliance certifications, etc.
  • Legal attributes: jurisdictional location, dispute resolution, etc.

“Selecting a enterprise-ready service like kiteworks by Accellion is critical, but performing product evaluations is expensive and time consuming, especially with the breadth of services available today,” said Rajiv Gupta, founder and CEO of Skyhigh Networks. “The Skyhigh CloudTrust Rating streamlines the evaluation process by providing an objective and comprehensive evaluation of a service’s security controls and enterprise readiness.”
