Appcelerator Receives Enterprise-Ready Rating From the Skyhigh CloudTrust(TM) Program

Achieves the Highest Rating by Satisfying the Most Stringent Requirements for Data Protection, Identity Verification, Service Security, Business Practices, and Legal Protection

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/28/14 -- Appcelerator announced today that it has been awarded the highest Skyhigh CloudTrust™ rating of Enterprise-Ready for its Appcelerator Platform. 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.

"The Appcelerator Platform enables organizations to deliver transformative mobile apps. And with its enterprise MBaaS capabilities, customers can build and manage the APIs that unleash their corporate data," said Neeraj Gupta, vice president of engineering, Appcelerator. "Appcelerator is pleased to be recognized by Skyhigh with the Enterprise-Ready rating, further validating that we deliver the highest levels of cloud security and reliability our customers demand."

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 service like Appcelerator 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™ Program streamlines the evaluation process by providing an objective and comprehensive evaluation of a service's security controls and enterprise readiness."

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises.
