SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, CipherCloud, the leader in cloud information protection, expands its platform through the acquisition of CloudUp Networks, a privately held provider of SaaS application security.

CipherCloud continues to focus on developing security innovations that remove the data privacy and compliance barriers to cloud adoption. The company began its cloud protection journey by delivering encryption, tokenization and Data Loss Prevention (DLP) capabilities that solved the immediate need at the time to secure sensitive information before it moves into third party clouds. To complement these security controls, CipherCloud has integrated visibility capabilities into its platform to help customers discover data anomalies and determine the relevant security controls to protect their cloud bound data.

The integration of CloudUp Networks broadens the CipherCloud platform with capabilities to scan and tag different classes of data in order to protect sensitive organizational information. Additionally, the CloudUp technology provides a holistic view of the sensitivity of data across all cloud applications and enables DLP policies to be enforced on cloud data based on the sensitivity or risk level of that data. These capabilities enhance an organization's visibility into and compliance controls for data throughout its cloud lifecycle.

"We continue to raise the bar for cloud information protection," said Pravin Kothari, founder and CEO of CipherCloud. "The consumption of multiple cloud applications into the enterprise requires security to be in lock step with visibility. This acquisition reflects our strategy of growing our business with the tools our customers need to go to the cloud."

The transaction closed in early January. The financial terms of the acquisition are not being disclosed.

The CipherCloud platform provides organizations with protection controls that enable organizations to comply with government regulations and industry mandates including GLBA, PCI, HIPAA and HITECH, the EU Data Protection Act, UK ICO guidance, the Australian Privacy Amendment Act and US State privacy laws.
