CASB+ Platform Combines Breakthrough Cloud Security with Powerful End-to-End Data Protection to Accelerate Cloud Adoption

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CipherCloud®, a leader in cloud security, today announced it had been named a Visionary in Gartner’s 2018 Magic Quadrant for Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASB).

CipherCloud’s breakthrough CASB+ platform allows enterprises to accelerate cloud adoption with comprehensive visibility, complete cloud control, real-time threat protection, and powerful Zero Trust end-to-end encryption. CipherCloud CASB+ completely protects users, devices and data in any cloud, meets global data protection standards and ensures their sensitive data is always secured. CipherCloud CASB+ can protect any SaaS, PaaS or IaaS services, such as Office 365, Salesforce.com, ServiceNow, SAP, SuccessFactors, Box, Slack, Dropbox, Google Suite, AWS, as well as any custom application.

“CipherCloud is paving the way to a new era of secure multi-cloud adoption,” said Pravin Kothari, CipherCloud CEO. “CASB+ is the only solution that combines innovative capabilities with powerful data protection, completely protecting users, devices, and data in any cloud. We believe CipherCloud’s position as a Visionary in the Gartner Magic Quadrant strongly validates our understanding and innovative approach to the cloud security market.”

As enterprises increasingly adopt cloud-based applications, they must protect their sensitive data. Gartner predicts that “by 2022, 60% of large enterprises will use a CASB to govern some cloud services, up from less than 20% today.” Note 1.

The CASB+ AdvantageCipherCloud’s CASB+ moves the industry vision forward by unifying critical CASB capabilities such as cloud visibility, complete cloud control, and real-time threat protection with transparent, end-to-end data protection. Key capabilities include:

-- Protection from the top cloud security threats as outlined by the Cloud Security Alliance including data breaches, insufficient identity and access management, insecure APIs, and advanced persistent threats. -- Complete cloud control over access from off-premises locations, unmanaged devices, and 3rd-party users, thanks to CipherCloud’s flexible traffic management with Reverse proxy mode, Forward proxy mode, and API mode while enforcing contextual policies. CipherCloud integrates with IAM and EMM/MDM to correlate identity, device posture, location, etc., along with user risks, and take real-time actions including step-up multi-factor authentication and reduction of functionality such as read-only and no download. -- End-to-end or Zero Trust encryption protects data in any cloud from the enterprise edge and back. Data is completely encrypted and secure prior to delivery to any cloud application, with protection guaranteed during rest (cloud providers database), in motion (middleware, API’s, network), and in use, and is totally transparent to the users of cloud applications. -- Full support for custom applications through the unique AnyApp capability; customers can protect sensitive data within their own custom cloud applications no matter which cloud provider they choose, and without the need to integrate SDKs or re-engineer their applications. -- Ensures organizations meet critical compliance regulations such as GDPR, HIPAA, and PCI as well as geographic-specific regulations in data privacy, data sovereignty, and data residency.
