Grand Junction, CO, April 29, 2021 – Cloudrise was named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award in the Tech Startup of the Year – Services category in The 19th Annual American Business Awards®.
More than 3,800 nominations – a record number – from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories. As the Gold medal recipient in the category of “Tech Startup of the Year – Services”, Cloudrise was heralded by the judges: “Cloudrise’s data-centric approach to cybersecurity, and use of automation, are very much needed services for organizations to enable the digital transformation journey.”
Cloudrise was founded in October 2019, and in 2020 they conquered the seemingly impossible, launching a new company amidst a global pandemic and economic downturn. Despite those challenges, Cloudrise had a successful year one in business, exceeding 2020 revenue targets, securing capital investments through investors, and delivering Managed Services and Security Process Automation to over 50 customers.
Cloudrise’s CEO, Rob Eggebrecht, shared his thoughts about what makes Cloudrise different: “Cloudrise’s Security Process Automation services are a key differentiator in the marketplace. Organizations are dependent on data stored within a myriad of systems, requiring integration and automation to enable them to work at the speed of business. Cloudrise automates operational processes across data protection and privacy solutions, business applications, and visualization tools, to optimize manual processes, enhance reporting, and provide faster incident response. Starting with an assessment, we identify use cases, develop playbooks, and ultimately build, deploy, and manage the automation.”
