Sep 09, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
CohesiveFT, a creator of products and services that enable enterprises to use virtual and cloud computing infrastructure to run business operations in the cloud, announced that the company is a finalist for the Global Security Challenge (GSC) category Post-Revenue security solutions, and the Computing Security Magazine Awards for Cloud Security Solution of the Year.
According to a release, CohesiveFT and their network virtualization product, VNS3, are nominated in both awards for work in the cloud computing industry around data security encryption and cloud overlay networking. Voting is now open and closes on October 9.
"We are honored to have been selected as a finalist by both the editors of Computing Security magazine and the Global Security Challenge judges," said Patrick Kerpan, CEO and co-founder of CohesiveFT. "Cohesive has been working with customers and partners to secure over 60 million virtual device hours since we started supporting the cloud industry in 2008. It is a testament to our technology and our industry to see how customers are using VNS3 to scale their production-ready cloud deployments as they grow."
The company reported that VNS3 is different from other cloud networking solutions because it creates a customer-controlled overlay network on top of any underlying public, private or hybrid IaaS. VNS3 allows enterprise customers to secure and control their production ready cloud environments to speed time to market.
Additionally, the Global Security Challenge Summit will take place on Thursday, September 12, in London, UK. CohesiveFT's CTO, Chris Swan, will present a brief company pitch as part of the Summit and award presentation. Swan will present at 2:20pm in the Bourne Laboratory Building in the Royal Holloway at the University of London. Contact CohesiveFT or the GSC for a free ticket.
In the Computing Security Awards, the winner in each category will be determined via popular vote online and presented on October 17 in London. Details about the 2013 Computing Security Awards and the list of Finalists in all categories are available at computingsecurityawards.co.uk.
