Palerra Cuts Through the Cloud Security Hype According to SC Magazine Review

Leading IT Security Publication Finds Palerra's LORIC Solution 'A Strong Security Management Tool' That Brings Comprehensive Security Measures to Cloud Applications and Infrastructure

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 20, 2015) - Palerra, the cloud security automation company, today announced SC Magazine praised Palerra's LORIC™ platform in a recent product review. It monitors enterprise cloud applications and infrastructure including Amazon AWS, Salesforce, Microsoft® Office 365™, Google Apps and ServiceNow, and promotes the security of these services through a single pane of glass.

In the Emerging Products Group Review, Palerra stood out for its ability to provide a "360 degree closed loop system" that automates the cloud security lifecycle, from threat detection to incident response. Such an approach is necessary in light of the exponential increase in cloud adoption as well as the rapid increase in the velocity of attacks. Palerra provides a first line of defense for IT teams enabling them to focus on more strategic tasks and improve operational efficiency.

Conducted and written by SC Labs Director Dr. Peter Stephenson, the review calls LORIC, "A strong security management tool based on a solid premise of visibility into cloud applications, threat detection for cloud applications and compliance in the cloud." It enables enterprises to fulfill their obligations in the shared responsibility model for security. Palerra has a long list of high profile enterprise customers from a variety of verticals and was recently named a CRN Emerging Vendor, one of CRN's "Ten Coolest Startups for 2015," an AlwaysOn Global 250 company and a Gartner 2015 Cool Vendor.

"To be recognized by such a long-standing, top-tier IT security publication is an extreme honor for Palerra, and validates our place at the top of the cloud security market," said Ganesh Kirti, CTO of Palerra. "We architected LORIC as a cloud-based security service that does not require any hardware or software, simplifying deployment. Its unobtrusive design ensures that the native user experience of the cloud service is preserved."
