We are excited to share that Snow Software has obtained STAR Level 1 and Trusted Cloud Provider Certifications for Snow Atlas from the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA).
We know there are countless cloud vendors out there and that it can be challenging to sort through them all to find the perfect solution for your organization’s unique set of challenges and criteria. This is one major reason why Snow pursued STAR and Trusted Cloud Provider certifications – to help both current and prospective customers cut through the noise and quickly and easily identify Snow as a cloud provider whose security practices meet the industry best practice. And now, with this certification, business leaders can feel reassured that the tools they depend on from Snow are on the cutting-edge of security and compliance.
Snow’s Technology Intelligence platform, Snow Atlas, which is now listed on the STAR registry, provides comprehensive visibility and contextual insight across software, SaaS, hardware and cloud. With Snow, IT leaders can effectively optimize resources, enhance performance and enable operational agility in a hybrid world. Snow is changing the way organizations understand and manage their technology consumption. As technology partners, it’s important that we’re outspoken and deliberate in our commitment to security and compliance for our category-defining solutions.
To become a CSA Trusted Cloud Provider, Snow completed the following requirements:
- Complete a 270-point assessment of our security controls vs. the CSA Cloud Controls Matrix (CCM)
- Have at least one current member of staff who has achieved the CSA Certificate of Cloud Security Knowledge (CCSK)
- Volunteer at least 20 hours annually to CSA for activities such as research working groups, regional chapters, call for presentations, blog contributions and more
- Be a corporate member of the Cloud Security Alliance in good standing
The CSA is the world’s leading organization dedicated to defining and raising awareness of best practices to help ensure a secure cloud computing environment. Built upon existing CSA programs, the Trusted Cloud Provider trust mark (which is displayed on qualifying organizations’ Security, Trust, Assurance & Risk (STAR) registrations) helps consumers and business leaders identify cloud providers that demonstrate their commitment to holistic security and are aligned with their individual security requirements. We’re proud to support the CSA and align ourselves with this industry-leading organization and its security and compliance values. Looking ahead, we intend to pursue additional certifications, ISO27001 and SOC2, to further demonstrate our commitment to cloud security competency, and a commitment to our customers and the industry at large.
We’re eager to engage with the networks, educational resources and knowledge-sharing gained through the CSA community to strengthen our security posture and enhance security across the cloud community. Given the exponential pace of cloud adoption to support modern business and a distributed workforce, it’s vital that businesses can be confident that their cloud providers are certified reliable, secure, compliant and have the CSA seal of approval.
