eFortresses has announced that due to its cloud security rating platform, CloudeAssurance, it has been recognized by Gartner as one of only four Cool Vendors in risk management and compliance in 2013.

CloudeAssurance is designed for global enterprise and government customers, cloud brokerages, cloud auditors, and cloud service providers that want to differentiate themselves by providing higher levels of security assurance and transparency to their customers and stakeholders. 

According to Gartner, "The industry is poised for strong growth through 2014, when worldwide cloud services revenue is projected to reach $148.8 billion."

eFortresses strongly believes that Information Security will either become a nightmare or an enabler for cloud adoption, particularly with recent increases in highly publicized cloud security breaches.

The CloudeAssuranceSaaS platform is the industry's first truly risk-intelligent rating, continuous education and continuous monitoring system assuring cloud service provider's cloud security and governance, risk and compliance. CloudeAssuranceprotects customers by measuring cloud service providers' ability to securely deliver services in accordance with industry best practices, standards, and regulatory compliance.

"eFortresses is honored to be named amongst this small group of innovative cool vendors. This recognition coincides with the publication of our second quarterly independent study report titled 'Cloud Security Benchmark: Top 10 Cloud Service Providers' and I believe this recognition validates our product roadmap and go to market strategy," explained Taiye Lambo, president and founder of eFortresses, Inc.
