CipherCloud encryption solutions are unique in delivering the highest levels of security, while preserving the functionality of encrypted data and the user experience. Patented SSE technology provides secure virtual indexing at the cloud encryption gateway while sending the strongly encrypted data to the cloud. This unique solution enables natural language searches, wild cards, Boolean phrases and support for flexible search terms, such as “starts with” or “ends with,” compatible with today’s Internet search conventions.
CipherCloud is the first and only cloud data protection vendor to have achieved FIPS 140-2 validation for its cryptographic module (certificate #2261 in October 2014).

CipherCloud cloud encryption solutions make it easy to protect any type of data with standards-based encryption and sole custodianship of the keys (with the enterprise, not the cloud provider).
