CipherCloud has launched a solution designed to deliver cross-cloud visibility and data protection. 

The San Jose, California-based cloud security provider has released Cloud Security Broker, which “extends the CipherCloud platform with frictionless application programming interface (API) integration to entire categories of clouds such as cloud storage applications, CRM systems, HR applications and more.”

Cloud Security Broker delivers 360-degree user behavior analytics, threat detection compliance controls and encryption, according to CipherCloud.

In addition, CipherCloud noted Cloud Security Broker works across a range of applications across Microsoft Office 365OneDrive, Box and other cloud applications through cloud APIs.

Other Cloud Security Broker features include:

  • Compliance scanning capabilities

  • Granular policy controls

  • Policy-based encryption

  • Multi-cloud collaboration controls

  • Activity monitoring and anomaly detection

“CipherCloud is the industry pioneer in enabling enterprise cloud adoption by protecting sensitive and regulated data,” CipherCloud CEO Pravin Kothari said in a prepared statement. “Cloud Security Broker greatly expands the breadth of our cloud coverage.”

Also, CipherCloud continues to explore ways to bolster its cloud security offerings. 

The company in June, for example, added tokenization to its cloud data protection portfolio.  

Tokenization allows businesses to retain the original data on premises while sending the tokenized forms into the cloud, CipherCloud said.

Kothari pointed out the offering was “tailor made for the EU’s increasingly tougher regulatory environment for the cloud” as well.
