VANCOUVER, British Columbia — (EON: Enhanced Online News) — Layer 7 Technologies, the leader in security and governance for SOA and cloud, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the OnDemand Top 100 winners. The OnDemand 100 awards recognize organizations for their game-changing approaches and disruptive technologies for cloud and SaaS, and winners are selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value and media buzz in cloud.


“Layer 7's technology extends the boundaries of the enterprise simplifying cross-organizational information sharing across organizational boundaries and the cloud.”.


Layer 7 Technologies and the other OnDemand Top 100 winners will be honored at AlwaysOn’s OnDemand event on April 19, 2010, at Hewlett-Packard’s Worldwide Headquarters in Palo Alto, Calif. This two-and-a-half-day executive event features CEO presentations and high-level debates about how the Internet is disrupting the way companies of all sizes create, distribute, analyze and take advantage of their mission-critical data.


“As the digital information created by businesses continues to explode at astronomical rates, the need to store, manage, analyze and share this information is becoming extremely challenging,” said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “We congratulate this year’s OnDemand 100 for providing the technology platforms and services needed to manage and leverage this new era of information complexity and overload.”


Layer 7 Technologies’ flagship line of SecureSpan™ and CloudSpan products provide connectivity, security and management controls for enterprises consuming cloud services and service providers delivering cloud services.
