OTTAWA, Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ – AFORE Solutions, Inc., a market leader in cloud security and data encryption management,
announced today that it has received two Cyber Defense Magazine Awards
at the RSA Conference. The company was recognized in the Hot Company
Application Security Solution and Best Product Cloud Security Solution
categories for CloudLink® SecureAPP and CloudLink SecureVSA,
respectively. Designed to provide a complete encryption management
solution that protects critical data in multi-tenant, hybrid cloud
environments, CloudLink SecureAPP and CloudLink SecureVSA are awarded

compliance needs in virtualized IT environments

“We’re thrilled to recognize next-generation innovation in the
information security marketplace and that’s why AFORE has earned these
awards from Cyber Defense Magazine. Some of the best INFOSEC defenses
come from these kinds of forward thinking players who think outside of
the box,” said Pierluigi Paganini, Editor-in-Chief, Cyber Defense

Data security is one of the top barriers to cloud adoption, due in part
to the prevalence of threats to data privacy and concerns about reduced
control. As companies, including enterprises, government departments
and healthcare organizations look to deploy cloud solutions, the need
to protect critical data becomes essential. AFORE’s CloudLink platform
helps mitigate these attacks by offering a rich suite of encryption
modules for securing data at rest and in flight at multiple points of
the cloud computing stack including storage, virtual machine (VM),
file, and application layers.

CloudLink SecureVSA addresses storage privacy concerns by encrypting
mission-critical data in motion and at rest across private, hybrid and
multi-tenant public clouds. The module looks to safeguard data against
unauthorized third party access or concerns of data remanence by safely
protecting all data, no matter where it resides, through a
software-defined encryption storage layer. CloudLink SecureAPP,
formerly known as CypherX, locks down cloud hosted applications and
virtual desktops within the network by creating a secure virtual
container around applications and encrypting all data within those
applications. Customers have peace of mind knowing that if the
perimeter is breached or information is copied, the data will remain
encrypted, keeping it safe and secure from unwanted eyes.

“In a world of strengthened regulatory compliance, advanced cyber
threats and data breaches, it’s vital that customers are able to
protect their sensitive data at all layers of the virtualized IT stack,
particularly as they deploy workloads to the public cloud. Companies
must begin to safeguard their valuable information in both multi-tenant
cloud and virtualized environments through encryption platforms,” said
Alex Berlin, AFORE CEO. “We’re honored that CloudLink SecureAPP and
SecureVSA have been recognized with these prestigious awards as it
provides further validation that AFORE is providing our customers with
innovative and valuable products to help protect their data in the

The 2(nd) Annual Cyber Defense Magazine Awards were announced at the RSA Conference in San Francisco, California on Monday, February 24. AFORE will be
showcasing the complete CloudLink encryption platform at the conference
in booth #2501 in the South Expo from February 24-28.
