LOS ANGELES, April 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Awareness Technologies, Inc. (ATI), the only provider of Complete Insider Threat Security On-Demand, today announced it was named one of the Top 20 Cloud Security Vendors as part of Everything Channel's CRN Magazine's 100 Top Cloud Computing Vendors list. The comprehensive 100 Top Cloud Computing Vendors list highlights the most innovative cloud vendors and solutions for the channel - including storage cloud offerings, security cloud offerings, cloud apps, cloud infrastructure and cloud platforms to assist solution providers in navigating the cloud phenomena successfully.
"Cloud-based internal threat protection is one of the fastest growing areas in information security and we're honored to be recognized among CRN's top cloud computing vendors. We've created an endpoint solution called InterGuard to monitor, report and block inappropriate employee activities, and our partners are finding great success offering a unique integrated threat management service that solves employee problems for companies of all sizes from very small SMB customers to large enterprises," said Ken Totura, Chief Channel Officer of Awareness Technologies.
To effectively deal with the cost and complexity of deploying Insider Threat Security, ATI developed InterGuard, the only complete solution that deploys in minutes and does not require any hardware. Through building its solutions around the endpoint rather than the network, ATI is able to deliver next generation Data Loss Prevention (DLP), web filtering, employee monitoring and laptop recovery with unmatched visibility, control and ease-of-use.
"This year's Top Cloud Computing Vendors award is based on a cloud vendor's approach to creating an innovative product, or an innovative approach to supporting solution providers in the IT channel," said Kelley Damore, Vice President and Editorial Director CRN. "Specifically, these Cloud vendors help resellers transform themselves into true service providers and help organizations and enterprises take advantage of the ease, flexibility, scalability, elasticity and cost savings that leveraging cloud computing has to offer."
