MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - May 04, 2016) - Bracket Computing, a pioneer of the Cloud Workload Protection Platform, today announced it has been recognized as a "Cool Vendor"* in Gartner's "Cool Vendors in Cloud Infrastructure, 2016" report.

In response to the need for modern enterprises to distribute and run their workloads on a variety of different resources, Bracket has developed the Computing Cell, a Cloud Workload Protection Platform. The Computing Cell provides data and application protection, asset integrity/assurance, workload segmentation, and advanced security -- fulfilling the key foundational criteria that Gartner specifies for a Cloud Workload Protection Platform. The Computing Cell is designed for IT control in a self-service world -- it's completely transparent and highly automated, and allows for consistent policy enforcement without impacting developers or data center operations teams. These capabilities are the fundamental catalyst for realizing the data center of the future.

Bracket Co-founder and CEO Tom Gillis said, "At Bracket, our vision is to provide consistent security controls across multiple clouds. Our Computing Cell is the realization of that idea. We believe being named a Gartner 'Cool Vendor' is a tremendous validation of the innovation that this technology represents."

Bracket continues to work closely with leading IT organizations to evolve and refine this technology. Today F500 organizations as well as mid-size enterprises are deploying business-essential IT applications, such as CRM on various configurations of hybrid clouds, according to their individual needs-each fully protected and supported by the Bracket Computing Cell.
