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.

CipherCloud's key capabilities include:

  • Comprehensive Protection Platform – Delivers advanced searching of strongly encrypted data while preserving security, usability and performance. The platform provides the ability to select a preferred protection scheme for each individual field for maximum security and usability.
  • Cloud Data Discovery – Search existing cloud applications on-demand and discover detailed information about sensitive data, and user activity, extending your corporate DLP policies to the cloud.
  • Strong AES 256-bit Encryption – Delivers AES 256-bit encryption, the highest commercially available level of encryption with unlimited initialization vectors to maximize randomness.
  • Robust Key Management – Provides enterprise key management capabilities in compliance with NIST SP 800-57 standards. Multiple key storage options enable keys to be stored securely on the CipherCloud platform or separately on a KMIP-compliant key management server.
  • High-performance Scalable Architecture – Delivers near zero latency while supporting the largest number of companies and government agencies with demanding throughput requirements. Over 2 million users are protected across 14 countries.
  • Activity Monitoring and Anomaly Detection – Tracks user interactions across multiple cloud applications assure compliance and spot anomalies through detailed security dashboards and reports.

This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities.

Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation.
