SurePass and Microsoft Windows Azure Introduce Secure Cloud Services (SCS)

SurePass and Microsoft Team on Preventing Data Breaches

SurePass has launched a comprehensive suite of Secure Cloud Services (SCS), which run on Windows Azure. This collaboration will enable both technology providers and application developers to deploy the additional security elements needed to deliver a secure application to their clients.

SurePass is a software and hardware security company, which specializes in securing cloud-based applications. It is delivering a significant value both in cost savings and market credibility through next generation Cloud based security solutions. SurePass developed its Secure Cloud Services to run on Windows Azure and with Secure Token Services (STS), Active Directory, Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG), and SQL Server 2008.

The company notes that this initiative gives Microsoft customers further tools to move to the cloud in a seamless, secure and protected manner.  Elaborating further on SurePass Secure Cloud Services the company says that these services protect the front door of their customer’s network with identity verification and management.

Moreover, these services also protect the back door through data encryption, and according to SurePass this represents a significant value to their clients.

As the IT paradigm shifts to cloud based computing to meet the enterprise’s need for flexibility and cost-savings, network and identity security has become a paramount concern for all parties,” said SurePass CEO Mark Poidomani. “SurePass offers application developers and enterprises alike the opportunity to provide the added layer of security needed to prevent data breaches and identity theft to their clients as they move to the Cloud.”

By leveraging Microsoft’s identity and security capabilities and applying them to their Windows Azure-based services, SurePass gives customers a security solution that builds on the strengths of the Microsoft platform,” said Prashant Ketkar, director of product management, Windows Azure, at Microsoft.
