PubNub's Highest Enterprise-Ready Cloud Security Rating

SAN FRANCISCO — May 29, 2014 — PubNub, the only globally distributed Real-time Network, announced today that it has been awarded the Skyhigh CloudTrust™ highest security rating of “Enterprise Ready” for its cloud-based, real-time services. Skyhigh Enterprise-Ready cloud services fully satisfy the most stringent requirements for data protection, identity verification, service security, business practices and legal protection.

PubNub secures its traffic – which is distributed and replicated across 14 datacenters worldwide – with multiple data encryption standards like AES and SSL, and manages permission for its customers’ real-time apps and data down to the person, device or channel level.

“At PubNub, security is paramount, and we work with customers in industries that require the highest levels of security controls and encryption when sending real-time data via our network,” said Stephen Blum, CTO and founder of PubNub. “We’re proud to be recognized by Skyhigh with its highest rating for security and enterprise readiness.”

Skyhigh identifies and classifies thousands of cloud services and provides an objective and detailed evaluation of the enterprise-readiness of each cloud service based on a detailed set of criteria developed in conjunction with the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA). The evaluation spans five categories:

  • Data attributes
  • User and device attributes
  • Service attributes
  • Business attributes
  • Legal attributes

“Selecting an enterprise-ready service like PubNub is critical, but performing product evaluations is expensive and time consuming, especially with the breadth of services available today,” said Rajiv Gupta, CEO of Skyhigh Networks. “The Skyhigh CloudTrust™ Rating streamlines the evaluation process by providing an objective and comprehensive evaluation of a service’s security controls and enterprise readiness.”
