Cradlepoint joins cloud security alliance
Alliance Provides Framework for CradlePoint’s Enterprise Cloud Manager to be Industry’s Most Secure Cloud-Based Networking Solution
CradlePoint a leading manufacturer of 3G Routers and 4G Routers has announced that it has joined the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA). CSA is a not-for-profit organisation with a mission to promote the use of best practices for providing security assurance within Cloud Computing.
CradlePoint’s participation within the alliance provides an additional layer of confidence and aligns its cloud-based management solution, Enterprise Cloud Manager, with an industry-accepted framework. CradlePoint’s Enterprise Cloud Manager will look to the Cloud Security Alliance Cloud Controls Matrix (CCM) as a security framework for the solution. CCM provides fundamental security principles that are aligned to Cloud Security Alliance guidance in 13 distinct domains.
Cloud Computing is changing the way organizations support distributed enterprises and improve operations. CradlePoint’s enterprise customers have turned to CradlePoint’s Enterprise Cloud Manager to deploy, monitor and manage their networks since CradlePoint delivered the first certified 4G LTE networking solution. Focused on distributed enterprises, CradlePoint is committed to ensuring that its networking solutions are highly secure and optimized. In the past year, CradlePoint hired industry security veteran, Kent Woodruff as CSO, as well as adopted a number of industry standards that are a part of the CSA Cloud Control Matrix.
Today’s announcement with the Cloud Security Alliance is another example of CradlePoint taking a leadership role in enterprise security,” said Woodruff. “We are excited to engage with CSA and its partners, and continue to look to the principles outlined in the Cloud Controls Matrix as the security foundation for Enterprise Cloud Manager. CradlePoint’s adoption and alignment with the Cloud Security Alliance allows our customers to confidently deploy our 4G LTE networking solutions as a primary and failover application.
