Although stripping out some of SecureVault’s features might sound questionable on paper, it provides organizations that use cloud applications and services from hyperscalers such as AWS with a choice of options and price points, according to Krista Macomber, a senior analyst at Evaluator Group.
Midmarket organizations can rely entirely on cloud applications and storage, meaning the ability to choose what features they want outweighs any perceived protection benefits from a premium product when every nickel and dime matters, she said.
“It’s the same service they provide, stripped of a few capabilities,” Macomber said. “This path makes sense. [Clumio is] building traction by protecting AWS cloud-native [workloads] and doing that very well. They’re trying to get that foothold into those environments before the more traditional [security] players.”
