SAN FRANCISCO, March 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- CloudPassage, Inc., a pioneering security SaaS company, 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."

Server-level security protection is critical in the cloud where front-line perimeter defenses are limited.

"Customers deploying cloud infrastructure in many environments are largely on their own to protect themselves; strong and highly automated host-based controls are essential," said Carson Sweet, CEO of CloudPassage.  "Security and compliance remain major challenges that stop companies from benefitting by the tremendous scalability, flexibility, and speed of cloud hosting."

CloudPassage technology is built from the ground up to provide elastic security by automatically delivering security visibility and controls when cloud servers burst or are cloned.  Once security is set up on one server, all copies of that server created later will automatically inherit its security controls.  CloudPassage customers benefit from greatly reduced attack surfaces, lower risk of compromise and improved compliance.

A sample of the list can be viewed in the March 30 issue of CRN:
