Spanning Backup for Google Apps and Salesforce Recognized for Robust Cloud Security Features

AUSTIN, TX – May 21, 2014 — / — Spanning Cloud Apps, the most trusted provider of data backup and restore for cloud applications, announced today that it has been awarded the Skyhigh CloudTrust™ rating of Enterprise-Ready for both Spanning Backup for Google Apps and Spanning Backup for Salesforce. Skyhigh Enterprise-Ready cloud services fully satisfy the most stringent requirements for data protection, identity verification, service security, business practices and legal protection.

“We are thrilled to be recognized as a Skyhigh Enterprise-Ready service, as it aligns with our mission to engender trust and provide complete transparency with our SaaS application backup and restore products,” said Jeff Erramouspe, CEO and president, Spanning. “Cloud applications make it easy for enterprises to collaborate and share data both within and outside of their organizations, which increases the risk of data loss due to hackers, disgruntled insiders and user error. Spanning exists to eliminate that risk.”

The Skyhigh CloudTrust™ rating is the latest proof of Spanning’s commitment to delivering world-class security in its products. Spanning was founded to help companies protect and manage their data so they can be fearless in the cloud. By providing enterprise-class, cloud-to-cloud backup and restore solutions, Spanning helps its more than 3,500 customers avoid significant business interruption that can result from lost data in SaaS applications, including Google Apps and Salesforce.

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

“Selecting an enterprise-ready service like Spanning is critical, but performing product evaluations is expensive and time consuming, especially with the breadth of services 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.”
