Ardoq announced that it has joined the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), an organization dedicated to defining and raising awareness of best practices to help ensure a secure cloud computing environment.
Ardoq joins CSA as a member of the Security, Trust, Assurance, and Risk (STAR) Registry, a publicly accessible registry that documents the security and privacy controls provided by popular cloud computing offerings. STAR encompasses the key principles of transparency, rigorous auditing, and harmonization of standards outlined in the Cloud Controls Matrix (CCM).
Ardoq’s data-driven EA platform enables organizations to implement and execute change across their projects, strategies, processes, applications, infrastructure, and capabilities. Unlike traditional EA platforms, Ardoq is a cloud-native solution that enables broad collaboration and crowdsourcing of data. Ardoq leverages open APIs to tie in directly to an organization’s source data and automates visualizations so users can focus on delivering value.
“Protection of customer data is critical to Ardoq, and we prioritize safeguarding the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information stored and processed by our platform,” said Erik Bakstad, Ardoq CEO. “Joining the Cloud Security Alliance demonstrates our commitment to continuously improve our cloud security, and we are proud to join an organization dedicated to not only bringing security best practices to the cloud, but creating transparency for organizations seeking secure cloud solutions.”
“The STAR Registry makes clear to prospects and customers the security regulations, standards, and frameworks organizations adhere to, taking the guesswork out of finding secure cloud solutions,” said Jim Reavis, CSA co-founder and CEO. “Publishing on the registry is a testament to Ardoq’s ongoing commitment to information security, and we are thrilled to have the company join CSA.”
