Perspecsys Receives 2015 Cloud Computing Excellence Award

Cloud Data Protection Platform Honored for Innovation

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 2, 2015) - Perspecsys, a leader in enterprise cloud data protection solutions recently acquired by Blue Coat Systems, Inc., announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named the Perspecsys Cloud Data Protection Platform a 2015 Cloud Computing Excellence Award winner.

The Cloud Computing Excellence Award, presented by Cloud Computing Magazine, recognizes companies that have most effectively leveraged cloud computing in their efforts to bring new, differentiated offerings to market.

"We are thrilled TMC has honored us with The Cloud Computing Excellence Award," said David Canellos, CEO of Perspecsys. "As demand for strong data security and regulatory compliance in the cloud has surged, we have been laser focused on delivering the best enterprise-class capabilities for encryption and tokenization in public cloud environments. To have our efforts and success recognized with this award is a significant achievement for our entire team."

Perspecsys' Cloud Data Protection Platform allows critical enterprise data to be encrypted or tokenized before it leaves an enterprise for processing and storage in the cloud. Because the clear-text data never leaves the organization, and is protected in-transit, at-rest and in-use within the cloud, issues associated with data privacy, security and compliance are addressed. In addition to securing the data, the AppProtex Platform ensures that the users of cloud applications can still use the application's features -- like searching, sorting and reporting -- even on data that has been strongly encrypted or tokenized.

"Recognizing leaders in the advancement of cloud computing, TMC is proud to announce Perspecsys' Cloud Data Protection Platform as a recipient of the Fifth Annual Cloud Computing Excellence Award," said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. "Perspecsys is being honored for their achievement in bringing innovation and excellence to the market, while leveraging the latest technology trends."
