New CASB+ platform combines powerful CASB capabilities with award-winning, data protection technology enabling enterprises to rapidly deploy cloud-native security and compliance across any SaaS, PaaS or IaaS application
SAN JOSE, CA – April 12, 2018 – CipherCloud®, a leader in cloud security, today announced the introduction of its CASB+ platform, which provides deep visibility, end-to-end data protection, advanced threat protection, and comprehensive regulatory compliance capabilities for enterprise SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS applications. CipherCloud’s CASB+ moves the industry vision forward by enabling a unified platform to provide a data-centric cloud security solution. The CipherCloud CASB+ platform allows enterprises to accelerate cloud adoption and ensure their sensitive data is always secured no matter where it resides within their cloud applications, across any application including collaboration tools, business systems, and custom applications.
As enterprises embrace the diversity of cloud applications, the attack surface and threat vectors increase exponentially. Even slight misconfigurations of cloud security settings can open up enterprise data to breach and theft, as we have seen with recent high-profile breaches. The CipherCloud CASB+ platform not only provides strong security controls across any SaaS, PaaS or IaaS cloud application but it can provide a way to enforce protection from the top cloud security threats as outlined by the Cloud Security Alliance including:
● Data breaches
● Insufficient identity, credential and access management
● Insecure interface and APIs
● Account hijacking
● Advanced persistent threats
● Data loss
The CASB+ platform also includes a newly introduced AnyApp capability, which allows customers to integrate these powerful data-centric security protection capabilities for sensitive data within their own custom cloud applications no matter which cloud provider they choose, without the need to integrate SDKs or re-engineer their applications. This provides customers the assurance that their custom applications will be able to protect sensitive data at all phases of its lifecycle (in transit, in the cloud, and on users’ devices), regardless of their cloud provider.
Benefits include individual field-level data encryption, tokenization or masking, as well as other powerful protection capabilities including dynamic access control, data loss prevention, threat prevention and DRM to name a few. All of these capabilities can be retrofitted to existing applications that are being migrated to the cloud, without affecting the user experience, while ensuring application capabilities are not affected. Recent breaches have demonstrated that custom applications can leave sensitive data unprotected which can elevate to a breach, but such breaches are now avoidable with the CipherCloud CASB+ platform.
CASB+ also includes built-in application connectors to support many popular business cloud applications including SAP SuccessFactors, ServiceNow, SalesForce, Office365®, Adobe®, Box®, DropBox®, SAP S/4HANA, and SAP Hybrid Cloud, providing seamless function preservation, data protection, and compliance even beyond the SaaS application provider’s offering. PaaS ecosystem applications offered in each provider’s marketplace are also protected by the CASB+ platform, providing customers greater control and visibility over which data is shared with these third-party PaaS providers.
“We are excited to introduce the CipherCloud CASB+ platform to the market, helping customers accelerate their journey to the cloud while ensuring their data is always protected and never outside of their control,” said Pravin Kothari, CEO of CipherCloud. “CipherCloud has had a long history of innovating security technologies to help enterprises adopt cloud services while ensuring end-to-end data protection. With the introduction of our CASB+ platform, we have elevated the cloud protection capabilities into a single cloud-based, or true hybrid platform that can allow customers the ability to support any SaaS, PaaS and IaaS application, all managed from a single console.”
The CipherCloud CASB+ platform offers flexible deployment choices, including cloud-based, on-premise, and a ground-breaking hybrid deployment. This flexibility offers fast time to value for customers looking to protect their data while using cloud applications, as well as ensuring strong data protection to help organizations that have to deal with multiple regulatory and geographic-based privacy or compliance regulations. Hybrid deployment enables strong support for companies having to deal with the requirements of the European Community General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), as well as many other compliance requirements (including HIPAA, PCI, and more).
The CASB+ platform allows any enterprise to manage one integrated deployment for global data-centric cloud security across multiple countries, specific industries, and sectors, having different requirements for compliance in areas such as data privacy, data protection, data sovereignty, and data residency. The platform can also support any combination of customer-controlled keys, for multiple applications, in configurations that can include one or more on-premise key management systems. The power and flexibility of the platform enable multinational customers immediate support for a broad diversity of security and compliance requirements and the ability to choose any cloud application that meets their business needs.
