  • Big Data Trailblazers

  • Mobile Technology Trailblazers

  • Networking Trailblazers

  • Security Trailblazers

  • Storage Trailblazers

Ed Macnair, CEO of SaaSID, commented, "We are extremely excited to have been nominated in two categories of the Tech Trailblazer Awards. Our technology solves a real problem faced by CIOs who are trying to manage web applications and the influx of personal computing devices into the enterprise and it has already caught the attention of the judging panel, which includes some notable names from the technology and investment worlds. Our participation in the Tech Trailblazer Awards has provided us with a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness of our innovation with CIOs of companies worldwide. Tech Trailblazer Awards is a great initiative that really supports up and coming companies in the technology sector. I'd like to thank everyone who adds their vote."

SaaSID's technology, Cloud Application Manager, facilitates organisations' use of cloud-based applications by authenticating employees through the browser, then managing and auditing their use of applications. Cloud Application Manager seamlessly integrates with existing directories, including Active Directory, LDAP and OpenID. The browser-based technology can perform policy-based redaction of sensitive information presented by web applications, or restrict features within web pages according to a user's role, regardless of the device they are using. This extends enterprise security policies to the cloud and helps organisations to address the governance, risk and compliance issues associated with web application use and the implementation of BYOD initiatives.

SaaSID has been shortlisted as a Cloud Trailblazer and a Security Trailblazer in the 2012 Tech Trailblazers Awards. Votes can be added by following the links below:

In her session at 15th Cloud Expo, Evelyn de Souza, Data Privacy and Compliance...
