CHICAGO, March 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Cleversafe Inc., the smarter equation for secure cloud storage, today announced it was named one of the 100 Top Cloud Computing Vendors by Everything Channel's CRN.  The comprehensive list will highlight 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.

"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."

Cleversafe's Dispersed Storage™ technology seamlessly and securely transforms data into secure slices and then disperses those slices to multiple storage nodes, typically across three or four data centers. The company's platform addresses the core principles of information security – confidentiality, integrity, and availability (CIA) – within its architecture. This approach solves cloud security problems commonly associated with cloud storage by securing the confidentiality of data by transforming, virtualizing and encrypting it to be inherently secure.

"It's an honor to be recognized as one of the top 100 cloud computing vendors," said Chris Gladwin, founder and CEO of Cleversafe. "Cloud storage is quickly changing as the growth in data continues to explode, and dispersed storage is the answer to solving that problem. By being included as one of the coolest cloud companies, it's apparent that we're addressing a significant pain point within the industry."
