Clearmanage is now CSA STAR Certified

Singapore, 28 October, 2015 – Singapore-based cloud service provider (CSP) Clearmanage Pte Ltd has reached another milestone and attained Cloud Security Alliance (CSA)’s STAR certification. This makes Clearmanage the first CSP in the world to use IDA’s cross-certification guidelines to cross-certify between MTCS and CSA OCF.

This comes less than a year after they achieved both ISO 27001:2013 and Multi-Tier Cloud Security Standard for Singapore (MTCS SS 584:2013) Level 3 certification.

CSA STAR is the industry’s most powerful program for security assurance in the cloud. STAR encompasses key principles of transparency, rigorous auditing, harmonization of standards, with continuous monitoring. STAR certification provides multiple benefits, including indications of best practices and validation of security posture of cloud offerings.

MTCS SS is the world’s first cloud security standard which covers multiple tiers of cloud security. This enables CSPs to clearly and quickly list their security capabilities to meet differing cloud user needs with clear language, accountability and transparency. The IDA published cross-certification guidelines in 2015 which harmonized MTCS SS with CSA OCF.

“After attaining our Singapore standard for cloud security, we wanted to raise the bar further. We wanted to provide businesses operating in Singapore, around the region and government agencies with further assurance of our capability to provide secure cloud services. With this conviction, we decided to go for our CSA STAR certification and I am delighted to announce that we have achieve Gold level for our CSA STAR,” said Alex Ng, General Manager of Clearmanage.

Aloysius Cheang, Managing Director APAC, Cloud Security Alliance said, “CSA has been working with IDA to promote cloud service provider transparency and accountability to benefits end users for some time now. Harnessing the harmonisation feature created in MTCS, Singapore based companies like Clearmanage can finally provide a definitive benchmark against the international standard CSA STAR Certification, which is useful for end users that are looking for something that is recognised and transferable worldwide.”

Singapore is embarking on its Smart Nation initiative. Having a reliable, secure and verified cloud infrastructure will be key to the successful delivery of various Smart Nation initiatives. Clearmanage’s continuous improvement on their capability to deliver secure cloud service to government, enterprise and SMB users, will be able to meet different needs of various stakeholders.

Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore Assistant Chief Executive Khoong Hock Yun said, “We are heartened that IDA’s work in cross-certification of our Multi-Tier Cloud Security Singapore Standard with other international frameworks is starting to gain traction. This shows the strong yet easily portable capabilities of MTCS, important as Singapore builds a Smart Nation.”

Clearmanage Selects CryptoAuditor for Privileged Access Management in First APAC Cloud Deployment

HELSINKI and SINGAPORE, April 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/

As more organizations migrate to the cloud, security issues must be addressed swiftly. SSH Communications Security today announced that Clearmanage, a regional cloud computing and cloud security service provider for government and enterprise clients, headquartered in Singapore, has chosen to deploy CryptoAuditor™ in a new and forward-looking cloud service offering. Clearmanage is the first organization in the Asia Pacific region to implement CryptoAuditor privileged user monitoring for a cloud environment.

Clearmanage has deployed CryptoAuditor within its own network and will also resell it as part of its security service offering.

  • Meeting key criteria: To satisfy Clearmanage requirements, the privileged access management (PAM) solution needed to be agentless and non-intrusive to its cloud service clients. It also had to be adaptable as a cloud-based security service, so that even clients not in the Clearmanage hosting facility would be able to leverage the solution to manage their privileged users. CryptoAuditor meets these criteria.
  • Committed customer support: SSH Communication Security’s strong customer support and local distributorship were major selling points.
  • PAM in the cloud: CryptoAuditor enables major enterprises, financial institutions, government agencies and cloud providers to take control of privileged access to their assets in the cloud, delivering distributed virtual appliance architecture and transparent monitoring capabilities.
  • Well-rounded solution: The solution helps prevent data exfiltration and performs encrypted data monitoring for a robust security stance.

Matthew McKenna, chief commercial officer, SSH Communications Security, said:

“Whether in the public or private sector, organizations around the world struggle to maintain compliance with regulatory requirements. Consequently, providers are now realizing the opportunity to provide a more well-rounded security offering. Clearmanage has experience in providing advanced security solutions and services across both sectors and is ideally suited to deliver security in the cloud.”

Alex Ng, General Manager, Clearmanage, said:

“CryptoAuditor helps us meet certification and compliance requirements while strengthening our cloud infrastructure. SSH Communications Security was willing to look into critical feature requests and to collaborate with us to bring the service to market. We now have a new PAM service to offer our secure cloud hosting clients as part of our government and enterprise cloud service.”

Clearmanage is world first CSP to achieve MTCS Tier 3 certification

Singapore, 12 September, 2014 – Singapore-based cloud service provider (CSP) Clearmanage Pte Ltd has achieved both ISO 27001:2013 and Multi-Tier Cloud Security Standard for Singapore (MTCS SS 584:2013) Tier 3 certification. It is the first CSP in the world to attain the highest security service level attainable in MTCS SS 584:2013 standard.

Announced by the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore on 13 November 2013, the MTCS SS 584:2013 is the world’s first cloud security standard to help certified CSPs spell out the levels of security that they can offer to their users. The standard has three levels of security. Tier 3, which is the most secure level, is designed for regulated organisations to address high impact information systems such as financial and health systems where sensitive information and highly confidential business data reside.

“Clearmanage is keeping to our commitment to providing reliable cloud services at the highest levels of security. Within 2 short months of achieving Tier 1 certification, we have gone through an intense period to have all policies, procedure and control mechanisms in place to be MTCS Tier 3 and ISO 27001 certifications compliant. Having once again raised the bar for our cloud security standard, clients and partners hosted on Clearmanage’s Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) platform can be assured that their data is now better protected,” said Alex Ng, General Manager of Clearmanage.

Clearmanage will also be opening a new cloud front, in an Uptime Institute certified Tier III datacentre in Singapore, to complement their MTCS Tier 3 certification. The new cloud front is designed to work in conjunction with existing datacentres to provide better business continuity and disaster recovery options. In additional to the infrastructure upgrade, Clearmanage will introduce a new suite of security services to help clients better secure and protect their valuable digital assets and reputation in this challenging security landscape.

Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore Assistant Chief Executive Khoong Hock Yun said, “Differing industries need varying levels of cloud security, with Singapore’s Multi-Tier Cloud Security standard being a key way to enable clarity for customers. We are heartened that Clearmanage have obtained the highest level possible—tier three. This level is particularly stringent to help meet the standards of highly secure data hosted by industries in the cloud. We are encouraged by the strong takeup and keen interest in our standard, which we see as a crucial enabler in Singapore’s drive to become the world’s first Smart Nation.”

We have invested heavily in infrastructure, technology and resources to ensure that all MTCS SS 584:2013 requirements are fulfilled beyond Tier 1 standard.
