CradlePoint, the global leader in cloud-managed, 3G/4G networking solutions for distributed enterprises, today announced that it has joined the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA). CSA is a not-for-profit organization with a mission to promote the use of best practices for providing security assurance within Cloud Computing. CradlePoint's participation within the alliance provides an additional layer of confidence and aligns its cloud-based management solution, Enterprise Cloud Manager, with an industry-accepted framework. 

CradlePoint's Enterprise Cloud Manager will look to the Cloud Security Alliance Cloud Controls Matrix (CCM) as a security framework for the solution. CCM provides fundamental security principles that are aligned to Cloud Security Alliance guidance in 13 distinct domains. The foundation of the Cloud Controls Matrix was built based on industry-accepted security standards, regulations, and control frameworks. The CCM provides the needed structure, detail and clarity relating to information security tailored to the evolving cloud industry.
