Verizon Business Joins Cloud Security Alliance

August 11, 2009 - News

Verizon Business has joined the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) to help promote security within the “cloud” –- services delivered over the Internet.

As a corporate member of the alliance, Verizon Business will help advocate for increased awareness and education concerning security best practices for the cloud.

“The Cloud Security Alliance has taken on a critical role in the industry to encourage security in the cloud,” said Michael Marcellin, vice president of Verizon global managed solutions. “Verizon Business’ involvement in the CSA underscores our focus on helping companies securely use the cloud to facilitate the next generation of corporate computing.”

As a new CSA member, Verizon Business will provide input and guidance on what makes for strong cloud-computing security practices. The company also has the opportunity to participate in – as well as access and share with enterprise customers – research on cloud-computing security issues.

“An industry leader such as Verizon Business participating in the Cloud Security Alliance helps put more focus on this highly critical area at a time when industry adoption is pivotal,” said Jim Reavis, CSA’s founder. “We believe that Verizon Business, through its innovative approach to security and the delivery of cloud-based solutions, will continue to play a key role in moving the industry forward.”
