CipherCloud Expands Open Platform Strategy Through Industry-First Cloud Data Loss Prevention

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) -- RSA CONFERENCE 2013 -- Today, CipherCloud, the leader in cloud information protection, announced the inclusion of data loss prevention (DLP) in its Open Platform strategy to enable organizations to adopt cloud applications with confidence.

Now, customers can leverage CipherCloud's Open Platform to monitor and enforce policies on information shared across all of their cloud applications unlike the older generation of DLP solutions. By including cloud DLP in its Open Platform technology, CipherCloud is extending its powerful information protection measures into the cloud.

Additionally, CipherCloud's cloud DLP enforces stronger security by deciphering, detecting and encrypting information exchanged between clients and the cloud. This delivers a critical feature that legacy DLP fails to provide for organizations that are sharing information in the cloud and through mobile applications.

CipherCloud's Open Platform also supports industry standard interfaces for integrating seamlessly with an organization's existing security infrastructure. CipherCloud's technology provides: -- An open ecosystem of integration support for customers using legacy DLP and anti-malware software for existing policy management such as Symantec(TM) and McAfee(R) -- Single Sign-on (SSO) and Access Management across multiple partners, including CA(TM) SiteMinder, Microsoft(R), Ping Identity(R), Symplified(R) and BiTKOO(R) -- Activity monitoring integration with industry leading solutions from HP(R) ArcSight(TM) and Splunk(TM) "CipherCloud is delivering a game-changing open platform to provide protection for information before it ever leaves the organization," said Pravin Kothari, CipherCloud founder and CEO. "This approach enables organizations to effectively solve multiple security issues - including data privacy, residency, security, and compliance - through a single gateway, by bringing a previously unavailable level of security to cloud applications." By delivering the industry's first cloud DLP technology, CipherCloud broadens the capabilities of its single point of access for all cloud applications, which comprises a robust suite of detection, protection, enforcement, and monitoring capabilities: -- Comprehensive Protection Platform - A single gateway delivers encryption, tokenization, key management, user activity logging, DLP, and malware protection -- Military Grade Encryption - Operations-preserving encryption that protects sensitive information before it is sent to the cloud -- Enforce Data Loss Protection: Custom DLP policies that scan, detect, and take action to protect sensitive information in any field or document, providing an additional level of security and control -- Deliver Malware Detection: Information exchanges including external and internal user uploaded attachments are screened in real-time for virus, malware and other embedded threats -- Provide Activity Monitoring: Security dashboards report on activities to monitor out of compliance users The CipherCloud platform provides universal support for commercially available enterprise cloud applications for CRM, collaboration, and email, which include Salesforce.com, Chatter, Force.com, Microsoft Office 365, Google Gmail and tailored solutions through CipherCloud's Connect AnyApp gateway. Today, CipherCloud is also announcing an important addition to its portfolio with the introduction of CipherCloud for Box. This new solution delivers data loss prevention and malware screening, providing an additional level of security to cloud content sharing through Box.

About CipherCloud CipherCloud, the leader in cloud information protection, provides cloud encryption and tokenization gateways to enable organizations to securely adopt cloud applications by eliminating concerns about data privacy, residency, security, and regulatory compliance. CipherCloud's ground breaking gateway encrypts sensitive information in real time, before it is sent to the cloud, using operations-preserving encryption and tokenization technology without impacting usability or the application in any way.

The CipherCloud product portfolio supports popular cloud applications out-of-the-box such as Salesforce, Force.com, Chatter, Box, Google Gmail, Microsoft Office 365, and Amazon Web Services.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
