Cleo: Innovative A2A and B2B Integration Expert

 Mahesh Rajasekharan,    CEOIn today's dynamic business environment, data is considered a valuable asset for gaining insights to better support business decisions and serve customers. However, security, control, and governance are required to move, view, and act on the data. Also, managing big data poses a challenge for organizations."The burden has increased the demand for sharing information and the secure collaboration of data across various boundaries in an easy-to-use way," begins Mahesh Rajasekharan, CEO of Cleo.

Headquartered in Illinois, Cleo offers a comprehensive data integration platform that handles all file types and formats, and integrates with cloud and hybrid infrastructures. The company's application-to-application (A2A) and business to business (B2B) integration solutions help to enhance or replace legacy systems and improve businesses."At Cleo, we bring data to life. Our single integration platform provides an agile, scalable solution that handles the most comprehensive requirements of enterprise
and multi-enterprise integration in a secure, reliable manner," he adds. The company provides the ability to manage the information flow for an organizations by allowing managed information ingestion and content-based information routing.

Cleo's solution delivers exponential cost efficiency when a company faces issues with the recurring maintenance and risk of failure associated with outdated systems. The company's solutions portfolio includes a library of more than 800 pre-configured secure connections to speed implementation. "Our solutions facilitate a highly secure and scalable enterprise 'data hub' that is easy to use and provide exceptional performance, without additional functionality being bolted on by expensive consultants later," says Rajasekharan. The easy setup, scalability, and unified view delivers the flexibility and transparency needed to manage daily business workflows.

The company focuses on secure data integration, secure file sharing, and big data movement. In the secure data integration arena, Cleo connects A2A and B2B communities, and enables a highly scalable environment where information can be exchanged rapidly and reliably, meeting all of the SLAs that these communities would enforce on each other. Additionally, Cleo delivers enterprise-grade secure file sharing and collaboration for organizations. "We are providing managed governance, risk, and compliance for data movement within an organization,
so administrators can be assured that any file sharing inside or outside the enterprise is secured and auditable," says Rajasekharan.

Cleo enables customers to securely integrate any data format (EDI, flat files, etc.) with any protocol (FTP, SFTP, AS2, etc.) to support the need for high-speed file movement in key business initiatives, including big data, cloud integration, and other high-volume throughput. "At Cleo, we believe there's a different way to solve data integration use cases, and we're not bound by old-school integration services approaches," says Rajasekharan. Cleo is uniquely positioned to serve customers who want to leverage both the power of data integration and file sharing together to become more agile in execution. The company has been helping organizations by providing enterprise integration software that handles the most comprehensive requirements of enterprise and multi-enterprise integration. For instance, a large European bank chose Cleo's software to meet stringent compliance standards and protect sensitive personal financial information.

Cleo also powers a global supply chain technology company that guarantees 100 percent uptime and speed for its millions of end users. In meeting these requirements, Cleo facilitates hundreds of billions of dollars in transactions per day. Moving forward, Cleo plans to further expand its integration solutions and its teams. The company opened a Chicago office in 2014 and added sales staff in Europe. "We plan to start operating in India by June and in Silicon Valley by late 2015," concludes Rajasekharan.
