Engine Yard Receives Enterprise-Ready Rating from the Skyhigh CloudTrust™ Program

SAN FRANCISCO — July 17, 2014 — Engine Yard, the leading cloud application management platform, announced today that it has been awarded the Skyhigh CloudTrust™ rating of enterprise-ready. Skyhigh Enterprise-Ready cloud services fully satisfy the most stringent requirements for data protection, identity verification, service security, business practices and legal protection.

“There’s no denying the business benefits that are driving developers, DevOps and business managers to the cloud today. They want to take advantage of agility, efficiency and cost savings,” said Jeff Reich, chief security officer at Engine Yard. “We are providing these customers with an innovative solution that lets them reap the benefits of cloud platforms without bypassing policies for corporate security and governance.”

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
  • Legal attributes

“Selecting an enterprise-ready cloud service like Engine Yard 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 streamlines the evaluation process by providing an objective and comprehensive evaluation of a service’s security controls and enterprise readiness.”
