PHILADELPHIA, June 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TargetX announced today that their industry leading CRM for higher education as well as their mobile suite of application review services for colleges and universities from recently acquired Matchbox, have been awarded the Skyhigh CloudTrust™ rating of Enterprise-Ready. Skyhigh Enterprise-Ready cloud services are the select cloud services that fully satisfy the most stringent requirements for data protection, identity verification, service security, business practices, and legal protection.
"TargetX is proud to receive this 'stamp of approval' but also pleased to see the growing acceptance of cloud-based solutions in higher education. Colleges are improving their efficiency while benefiting from increased security from our cloud-based Enterprise CRM," said Michael Crusi, co-founder and chief technology officer at TargetX.
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
