ATLANTA, Aug. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CloudeAssurance, Inc. (an eFortresses company) is proud to announce the launch of its most recent product "AlertApp!," a mobile application that represents the first of its kind. The application will be unveiled and on display at the Southeastern Accounting Show scheduled for August 27-28, 2014 in Atlanta, Georgia.
With global cloud services revenue projected to reach $148.8 billion annually in 2014 (source: Gartner), information security has become an enabler for cloud adoption but also a nightmare for organizations, evidenced by the recent highly publicized cloud related security breaches and continuously emerging threats.
According to a recent industry study, LinkedIn, Google+, Twitter and Facebook users had the highest incidence of fraud, because criminals can easily utilize sensitive information obtained from hacking these cloud services to commit financial fraud and other crimes.
"The high adoption rate of cloud computing services and increased storage of sensitive accounting records in the cloud has created a real need for an industry-wide standard of due-diligence management of security and compliance to ensure effective risk management on the part of cloud service providers and their customers, auditors, underwriters and brokers," noted Taiye Lambo, Founder & CTO of CloudeAssurance.
"AlertApp!" is powered by the CloudeAssurance Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform and allows consumers to monitor the safety and security of their data in the cloud at any time. It provides users the ability to proactively track, from the convenience of their mobile device and in real time, the cloud security ratings, security breaches, lawsuits and major outages impacting the cloud services that they use and enables them to act accordingly in response to these threats.
CloudeAssurance is the industry's first risk-intelligent rating, continuous education and continuous monitoring platform used to assess and assure a cloud service provider's overall security as well as enabling providers to effectively implement the various governance, risk and compliance initiatives needed to adequately protect sensitive information within the cloud environment.
CloudeAssurance protects customers by measuring cloud service providers' ability to deliver their service safely and securely in accordance with industry best practices, standards, and regulatory compliance such as SOC, PCI-DSS, FedRAMP, ISO 27001, ISO 9001, ISO 21827, Cloud Security Alliance, HIPAA, NIST Cybersecurity Framework and EU Safe Harbor. The platform also offers the flexibility of allowing a customer to request any standard including accounting standards to be imported into the platform and rating against them.
