CipherCloud Announces Cloud Discovery Solution Latest Edition to Its Growing Portfolio

London - 8 May 2014

New solution delivers visibility and risk scoring into Enterprise Cloud Application Usage 

CipherCloud, the leader in cloud information protection, expands its Discover, Protect, Monitor platform with CipherCloud for Cloud Discovery. This latest offering arms enterprises with instant and granular visibility into the cloud applications in use by employees.

Now, CIOs, CSOs and their IT teams can discover, analyse and risk score more than 3,000 cloud applications across recognised enterprise categories, such as CRM, collaboration, productivity and more.  In seconds, the Cloud Discovery engine analyses firewall and proxy logs to provide streamlined visibility into all cloud applications in use across the organisation and corresponding risk ratings.  Adding these discovery capabilities to CipherCloud’s cloud security controls delivers a powerful combination for protecting data from risks in the cloud.

CipherCloud for Cloud Discovery enables enterprises to quickly and easily discover all of the cloud applications that are being used by organisation. The tool highlights most-used and high-risk cloud applications based on user access and volume. Customers can identify high risk cloud applications based on a range of security metrics, understand level of usage and decide to take action where necessary.

“Raising the bar for cloud information protection today requires security to be in lock step with visibility,” said Pravin Kothari, founder and CEO of CipherCloud. “Insight into cloud applications usage helps companies create intelligent data protection and user monitoring strategies. I’m pleased to offer this capability for free to the market.”

The Cloud Discovery offering enables customers to retain full control over their sensitive audit logs as opposed to other cloud-based approaches that require enterprises to send their audit logs to third parties.  It provides the ability for administrators to output data in a range of formats through the use of Splunk – a popular and widely deployed enterprise technology.  Cloud Discovery supports an open, standards-based approach for assessing cloud application risk and provides the ability to enhance the risk knowledge base by leveraging crowd-sourced input from customers.

Embrace the cloud with visibility and control at your company today. For a free trial of Cloud Discovery please register on the CipherCloud website.

CipherCloud for Cloud Discovery is a key new addition to the CipherCloud portfolio. It represent the latest deliverable to our strategy of providing a holistic set of cloud visibility, security and monitoring controls to enable organizations to proactively adopt the cloud while protecting their sensitive data and comply with government regulations and industry mandates, including GLBA, PCI, HIPAA and HITECH, the EU Data Protection Act, UK ICO guidance, the Australian Privacy Amendment Act and US State privacy laws.
