Advanced CASB+ Solution Leverages Zero Trust Architecture
SAN JOSE and SAN FRANCISO, CA, RSA CONFERENCE — MARCH 4, 2019 — CipherCloud®, a leader in cloud security, today announced the availability of its new Secure SaaS Workspace solution as part of its award-winning CASB+ platform. CipherCloud’s new solution leverages contextual and behavior analytics, integrated with identity and mobile security, to secure user access to data in any enterprise cloud application, extending the enterprise security controls all the way to the cloud data on the user devices. This solution eliminates the need to route SaaS access back through the enterprise’s infrastructure, simplifying and streamlining secure access to cloud applications. With Identity and Digital Rights Management at the core of this new offering, CipherCloud helps enterprises of all sizes to more securely and efficiently adopt cloud technology.
Today’s enterprise security architecture is fast changing with more organizations moving to use cloud applications, which let employees bring their own devices to access these applications from anywhere. Backhauling internet traffic to enterprise data centers in order to secure access to applications and data isn’t effective, and enterprises are increasingly looking for infrastructure-less solutions to extend enterprise security controls to cloud applications and devices. CipherCloud’s extensive R&D investment delivers patented reverse proxy technology critical for this new era of connectivity, which allows enterprises to gain deep visibility into how they secure business-critical data, including the two-way traffic between cloud application access and any devices used for access. The integration of Secure SaaS Workspace into CipherCloud’s CASB+ platform takes Zero Trust to the next level of cloud and enterprise security.
“Enterprises need a better way to control access to cloud-based applications while meeting compliance and regulatory mandates,” said Pravin Kothari, Founder and CEO of CipherCloud.
“The rapid deployment of SaaS applications, the increase in BYOD, and the need for global access to any enterprise application, are forcing the need for a new security model. Perimeter defenses are dead. Smart IT professionals will make the move to Zero Trust.”
Zero Trust was first introduced by Forrester Research in 2010. It turns the legacy perimeter defense model upside down by assuming that every user, both inside and outside the network, is hostile and untrusted. Zero Trust limits access to an enterprise’s data resources, and requires authentication and authorization of each user and device on the network before access is granted. CipherCloud was the first cloud security provider to adopt Zero Trust in 2011.
According to Adam Prince, Vice President of Information Security at Addiction Campuses, “We need to control the PHI and PII data across numerous devices and multiple cloud apps. We selected CipherCloud after evaluating multiple CASB vendors, and found that CipherCloud’s Zero Trust architecture provided the best protection for our environment.”
CipherCloud’s CASB+ extends all of the platform-based security controls such as Data Loss Prevention (DLP), Digital Rights Management, malware and threat prevention, UEBA and anomaly detection, and device management to the cloud applications secured by Secure SaaS Workspace. Enterprises will remain in full control of their data going to the cloud and being downloaded to the devices at all times. With CASB✛, you can secure your cloud applications like Office 365, G Suite, Box, DropBox, Salesforce, ServiceNow or any other SaaS application. Unlike traditional solutions, Secure SaaS Workspace can be deployed in minutes and does not need software agents on devices or gateways in data center or private clouds.
