- Data attributes
- User and device attributes
- Service attributes
- Business attributes
- Legal attributes
“Companies seek enterprise-ready services from providers such as Egress Software Technologies, but vetting the capabilities and policies of a provider consumes a great deal of time and resources,” said Kamal Shah, vice-president of products and marketing at Skyhigh Networks. “The Skyhigh CloudTrust™ Rating shortens the evaluation process from weeks to hours by offering an objective, holistic assessment of a service provider’s security capabilities and enterprise readiness."
