Channel Focused Sales Model Providing Partners With Effective Cloud Application Security Solutions Earns Company Recognition as a Top 20 Cloud Security Vendor

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- Elastica (, the leader in Data Science Powered? Cloud Application Security, today announced it has earned recognition on The Channel Company's CRN 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors of 2015 list. This annual list recognizes some of the most innovative cloud companies supporting the IT channel today. Elastica was honored in the 20 Coolest Cloud Security Vendors category for its solutions that help organizations mitigate risks associated with the adoption of cloud applications and services.

The 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors honor is presented to companies based on their approach to creating innovative products, services or partner programs that have helped channel partners transform into true solution providers, ultimately helping customers take advantage of the ease of use, flexibility, scalability and savings that cloud computing offers. The Elastica CloudSOC? platform is recognized for its data science approach to the full life cycle of security for enterprise cloud usage. The company's all-channel sales model provides partners with a fast, easy and effective way to extend security and compliance across enterprise cloud applications and services customers have in use.

This year's 100 Coolest Cloud Computing honorees are identified across five major categories including platforms, infrastructure, storage, security and software. This list is an effort to help solution providers navigate through the ambiguity of the cloud market to identify the vendors, products and services that can help elevate their cloud services offerings. Companies were chosen based on data and information gathered from solution provider nominations along with input from the CRN editorial team. 

Elastica continuously protects organizations' sensitive data as they adopt cloud applications and services by revealing Shadow IT and providing data governance, compliance risk mitigation and powerful tools for incident response and post-incident analysis. The Elastica CloudSOC platform harnesses advanced data science and machine learning to deliver granular visibility of real-time traffic, advanced anomaly detection to identify threats and real-time content classification. Granular policies can be created and enforced in real time to prevent data breaches and compliance or sensitive data exposures. Its SaaS-based delivery model allows channel partners to easily deploy the solution with no on-site software or hardware required.

"Widespread demand for cloud computing solutions is increasing across businesses of all shapes and sizes. As organizations become more willing to adopt cloud technology and services, experienced solution providers are in greater demand," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "The 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors list enables solution providers to engage with companies who are poised to help them capitalize on these opportunities."
