Secure Islands, Adallom Partner to Protect Cloud Applications
Security solutions providers Secure Islands and Adallom have partnered to help customers protect their cloud documents and SaaS applications.
The partnership combines Secure Islands’ IQProtector solution with Adallom’s SaaS protection platform. By combining Secure Islands’ Information Protection and Control solutions with Adallom’s cloud access security platform, both companies expect to provide a more seamless method of protection for customers’ cloud lifecycle, including upload, download and collaboration, according to the company.
“The rapid and growing adoption of cloud applications offers organizations cost saving and productivity benefits, but companies need assurance that they are not sacrificing the security of their valuable data at the altar of the cloud,” said Yinon Costica, vice president of Product at Adallom, in a statement. “The integration of Secure Islands’ IQProtector further extends Adallom’s ability to protect the enterprise by securing sensitive data as it is shared and retrieved from collaborative cloud applications.”
The offering will allow users to protect data downloaded in an unstructured data format from SaaS applications, as well as implement and manage granular encryption policies based on file classification, document name, and a number of other parameters. Organizations will also have control over their encryption keys as well as full support for business processes so they can utilize cloud, BYOD and collaboration tools together, according to the announcement.
“One of the concerns of IT security teams is the ability to implement and manage data centric security controls in cloud applications, but our partnership with Adallom makes these concerns a non-issue,” said Eyal Manor, vice president of Product Management at Secure Islands. “Collaboration with fellow innovators such as Adallom ensures our customers extract the maximum benefit from cloud applications. Our joint integration gives organizations full confidence that their data will remain private and secure, even in BYOD scenarios.”
