AFORE Selected by Cyber Defense Magazine 2014 Awards as Hot Company and Best Cloud Security Solution

CloudLink® Encryption Management Solution recognized for securing cloud hosted applications against data breach and insider threats

OTTAWA, Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - AFORE Solutions, Inc., a market leader in cloud security and data encryption management, announced today that it has received two Cyber Defense Magazine Awards at the RSA Conference.  The company was recognized in the Hot Company Application Security Solution and Best Product Cloud Security Solution categories for CloudLink® SecureAPP and CloudLink SecureVSA, respectively. Designed to provide a complete encryption management solution that protects critical data in multi-tenant, hybrid cloud environments, CloudLink SecureAPP and CloudLink SecureVSA are awarded for meeting diverse customer deployment, data security and regulatory compliance needs in virtualized IT environments

"We're thrilled to recognize next-generation innovation in the information security marketplace and that's why AFORE has earned these awards from Cyber Defense Magazine. Some of the best INFOSEC defenses come from these kinds of forward thinking players who think outside of the box," said Pierluigi Paganini, Editor-in-Chief, Cyber Defense Magazine.

Data security is one of the top barriers to cloud adoption, due in part to the prevalence of threats to data privacy and concerns about reduced control. As companies, including enterprises, government departments and healthcare organizations look to deploy cloud solutions, the need to protect critical data becomes essential. AFORE's CloudLink platform helps mitigate these attacks by offering a rich suite of encryption modules for securing data at rest and in flight at multiple points of the cloud computing stack including storage, virtual machine (VM), file, and application layers.

CloudLink SecureVSA addresses storage privacy concerns by encrypting mission-critical data in motion and at rest across private, hybrid and multi-tenant public clouds. The module looks to safeguard data against unauthorized third party access or concerns of data remanence by safely protecting all data, no matter where it resides, through a software-defined encryption storage layer. CloudLink SecureAPP, formerly known as CypherX, locks down cloud hosted applications and virtual desktops within the network by creating a secure virtual container around applications and encrypting all data within those applications. Customers have peace of mind knowing that if the perimeter is breached or information is copied, the data will remain encrypted, keeping it safe and secure from unwanted eyes.

"In a world of strengthened regulatory compliance, advanced cyber threats and data breaches, it's vital that customers are able to protect their sensitive data at all layers of the virtualized IT stack, particularly as they deploy workloads to the public cloud. Companies must begin to safeguard their valuable information in both multi-tenant cloud and virtualized environments through encryption platforms," said Alex Berlin, AFORE CEO. "We're honored that CloudLink SecureAPP and SecureVSA have been recognized with these prestigious awards as it provides further validation that AFORE is providing our customers with innovative and valuable products to help protect their data in the cloud."

The 2nd Annual Cyber Defense Magazine Awards were announced at the RSA Conference in San Francisco, California on Monday, February 24. AFORE will be showcasing the complete CloudLink encryption platform at the conference in booth #2501 in the South Expo from February 24-28.
