3 Cloud Computing Companies on the Rise

As more consumers and enterprises move to the cloud, industry leaders have emerged to provide more than simple storage and backup solutions. Today’s cloud computing companies offer robust services, including complex and military-grade data security, agile B2B research and analytics, and hybrid restoration services. Here’s a look at three of today’s cloud computing leaders and their impact on the marketplace.

Dun & Bradstreet

In 2014, Dun and Bradstreet (D&B) acquired the cloud-based intelligence and analytics company Indicee. As a leader in cloud intelligence, D&B aggressively works to provide critical data for quick analysis with the touch of a button. Indicee’s technology breaks down complex and expensive business intelligence software to bring  a more agile solution to the marketplace.

D&B’s Cloud Innovation Center produces user-driven analytics software. With the help of the largest B2B database in the world, the company works to mobilize data for deeper business insights accessed completely in the cloud. D&B also acquired the social data matching business unit of Fliptop in 2014 to broaden its solutions to aggregate public web and social data.

Acronis Cloud Backup

Acronis is a leader in off-site cloud backup solutions. It has a reputation for protecting data and offering disaster recovery processes. The company combined its backup systems into a hybrid local and cloud backup solution for added protection in recovering anything from a single file to an entire system. Its SSAE 16-certified secure data centers meet or exceed the latest disaster prevention standards. Unlike many backup cloud providers, Acronis can send a hard drive with the backup files directly from its data center via overnight delivery to avoid network bottlenecks. Customers also have the option to recover directly from the cloud.

Trend Micro Cloud Security

Trend Micro is a leader in both cloud security and virtualization security markets. Its partnership with VMware broadened its virtualization market share. According to the Magic Quadrant report on x86 server virtualization infrastructure by Gartner research, VMware takes top spots in the right quadrant reserved for industry leaders. The report looks at organizations dedicated to virtualized application solutions, reducing hardware costs and increasing agility in delivering server capacity.

Trend Micro’s security arm offers robust data safety and backup services for personal and enterprise use. Data is protected with multiple layers of security across mobile devices, endpoints, gateways, servers and public cloud environments. In addition to working with individuals and large corporations, it also provides small businesses without a dedicated IT staff peace of mind and security.
