CipherCloud delivers the industry’s first and most comprehensive cloud access security broker (CASB) solution, enabling safe cloud adoption and compliance with an integrated platform that provides visibility, adaptive policy controls, and advanced data protection.
The solution allows businesses to discover what clouds are in use and where their data is going with multi-cloud user activity monitoring, anomaly detection, and analytics. CipherCloud is also the industry pioneer in applying advanced data protection to a wide range of cloud SaaS applications. The solution protects sensitive information with data loss prevention (DLP), advanced encryption, tokenization, and mobile file protection; meanwhile, enterprises maintain exclusive control over encryption keys. CipherCloud goes beyond encrypting data in transit or at rest, with persistent encryption of data in use through its entire cloud lifecycle, while maintaining the functionality of business-critical cloud applications. CipherCloud is also the only CASB vendor with end-to-end encryption through its endpoint client and mobile apps.
CipherCloud ensures that sensitive customer data is never exposed to unauthorized users, malicious threats, or forced legal disclosure. Through this integrated platform, enterprises can meet the widest range of requirements for data privacy and legal sovereignty while reducing the scope of compliance audits. With centralized control across multiple SaaS applications, the platform allows companies to avoid security silos and enforce policies consistently across many clouds with central policy controls and a comprehensive security dashboard.
