REDWOOD CITY, Calif., April 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Agiloft, Inc., a trusted provider of agile business process software, announced today that it has been awarded the Skyhigh CloudTrust™ rating of enterprise-ready for its suite of cloud-based business applications. Skyhigh Networks only awards the Enterprise-Ready rating to cloud services that fully satisfy the most stringent requirements for data protection, identity verification, service security, business practices, and legal protection.
Agiloft's entire suite of innovative applications, including Help Desk, Contract Management, External Customer Support, custom Business Process Management and more, is available with its hosted cloud service.
"We are very pleased that Agiloft has been awarded Skyhigh's highest CloudTrust™ security rating for our cloud service, though we're not surprised," said Colin Earl, CEO of Agiloft. "Agiloft has been providing hosted web-based business applications for over a decade. Our world-class cloud service was designed for reliability, scalability, and the highest level of security. We were even invulnerable to the recent Heartbleed exploit."
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
"There are many benefits to using cloud-based business applications such as Agiloft, but performing product evaluations is expensive and time consuming, especially with the breadth of applications 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."
Over 2.5 million users at companies ranging from small enterprises to U.S. government agencies and Fortune 100 companies depend on Agiloft's innovative applications to automate processes such as Help Desk, Contract Management, and Custom Workflows.
