“WiteSand is at the forefront of the cloud helping to drive practical innovations in the cloud,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer of Business Intelligence Group. “The cloud is now part of the fabric of our personal and professional lives and we are thrilled that our volunteer judges were able to help promote all of these innovative services, organizations and executives.”

“Recognizing leaders in the advancement of cloud computing, TMC and Cloud Computing magazine are proud to announce WiteSand as a recipient of the Cloud Computing Security Excellence Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “WiteSand is being honored for their achievement in bringing innovation and excellence to this crucial market segment.”

“We’re thrilled to receive these honors from both TMC’s Cloud Computing Magazine and the Business Intelligence Group,” said Praveen Jain, Founder and CEO, WiteSand. “These industry recognitions further validate our unique approach to providing plug and play networking in one unified cloud-delivered service. Because of the cloud, provisioning, monitoring, analyzing, and securing access to enterprise campus networking can and should be simpler and better than the on-premise solutions most organizations have today.”

Operated by The Business Intelligence Group, the Stratus Awards seek to identify the companies, products and people that are offering unique solutions that take advantage of cloud technologies.

The Cloud Computing Security Excellence Awards, presented by Cloud Computing Magazine, honor solutions in two categories: those that most effectively leverage cloud platforms to deliver network security, and those providing security for cloud applications. For more than 20 years, TMC has been honoring technology companies with awards in various categories. These awards are regarded as some of the most prestigious and respected honors in the communications and technology sector worldwide. Winners represent prominent players in the market who consistently demonstrate the advancement of technologies. Each recipient is a verifiable leader in the marketplace.

WiteSand was recognized with the awards because of its innovation in creating the industry’s first cloud-delivered network operations and zero trust network access control (NAC) solution. A cloud-native, multi-tenant system, WiteSand provides asset discovery, NAC, wired and wireless provisioning, monitoring, and flow analytics.
