A Focus on Cloud Security
CradlePoint, www.cradlepoint.com, announced it has joined the CSA (Cloud Security Alliance). CSA is a not-for-profit organization to promote the use of best practices for security within cloud computing. CradlePoint’s participation within the alliance aligns its cloud-based management solution, Enterprise Cloud Manager, with an industry-accepted framework.
Cloud computing is changing the way organizations support distributed enterprises and improve operations. CradlePoint’s enterprise customers have turned to its Enterprise Cloud Manager to deploy, monitor, and manage their networks since the company delivered the first certified 4G/LTE networking solution. Focused on distributed enterprises, CradlePoint hired industry security veteran, Kent Woodruff as CSO, and adopted a number of industry standards that are a part of the CSA Cloud Control Matrix.
CradlePoint will look to the Alliance’s CCM (Cloud Controls Matrix) as a security framework. CCM provides fundamental security principles that are aligned to Cloud Security Alliance guidance in 13 distinct domains. The foundation of the Cloud Controls Matrix was built based on industry-accepted security standards, regulations, and control frameworks. It provides the needed structure, detail, and clarity relating to information security tailored to the evolving cloud industry.
