(PR NewsChannel) / April 18, 2016 / MINNEAPOLIS and LONDON 

sopheonSopheon, the international provider of software, expertise, and best practices for Enterprise Innovation Management, announced today that it has been awarded the Skyhigh CloudTrustTM rating of enterprise-ready for its Accolade Cloud solution. Skyhigh Enterprise-Ready cloud services fully satisfy the most stringent requirements for data protection, identity verification, service security, business practices, and legal protection.

“As our customers increasingly move strategic innovation and collaboration into the cloud, securing their highly restricted data is a top priority for us,” said Sopheon’s Director of Infrastructure, Mark Meakins. “Accolade is the core system of truth for major strategic initiatives, and this certification validates and reinforces the confidence many customers already have in the reliability and security capabilities of our solution.”

Skyhigh identifies and classifies over 17,000 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 with the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA). The evaluation spans five attribute categories:

  • Data
  • User and device
  • Service
  • Business
  • Legal

“Organizations aim to provide employees with enterprise-ready cloud services from companies such as Sopheon but vetting the capabilities and policies of a provider consumes a great deal of time and resources,” said Kamal Shah, senior vice-president of products and marketing at Skyhigh Networks. “The Skyhigh CloudTrust rating shortens the evaluation process from weeks to hours by offering an objective, holistic assessment of a service provider’s security capabilities and enterprise readiness.”
