CENTRI Joins Cloud Security Alliance

Data Security Software Provider to Contribute Expertise on Data Encryption and Optimization with CSA Activities

SEATTLE, Wash. – June 23, 2015CENTRI , a provider of enterprise data protection solutions, today announced that they have joined the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), a not-for-profit organization with a mission to promote the use of best practices for providing security assurance within Cloud Computing, and to provide education on the uses of Cloud Computing to help secure all other forms of computing.

CENTRI’s BitSmart solution delivers next generation data protection in a Software-as-a-Service model or as software easily and quickly installed on existing application and database servers, mobile devices and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. BitSmart uses ultra-fast and secure algorithms that provide stronger, more scalable, and portable data encryption than previous generation technologies.  BitSmart enables better enterprise data protection in the cloud, on site or on mobile and IoT devices.

“CENTRI offers a different approach to securing data across mobile devices, cloud networks and other endpoints essential for successful cloud computing,” said Jim Reavis, CEO of the CSA.  “We look forward to CENTRI contributing alongside the group of security industry leaders that comprise the CSA.”

“The latest cyberattacks against enterprises demonstrate the persistent threats from hackers that have become common occurrences in a world growing ever more connected,” said Vaughan Emery, president and CEO of CENTRI. “With the assumption that persistent hackers will eventually find ways around the network as the first line of defense, the best practice for security professionals is to begin to focus more on data encryption as their best defense.  We look forward to working with the CSA to help educate audiences on this new paradigm of security.”
