Advanced CASB+ Solution Leverages Zero Trust Architecture
SAN JOSE, Calif. & SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–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.
