WALTHAM, MA – November 18, 2013 – CloudLock, the leading cloud information security provider, announced today that it is extending its security suite to cover Salesforce.com.
The newly announced solution allows Salesforce’s customers to implement their compliance and security policies, automatically and continuously securing all of their Salesforce.com objects, finding and highlighting sensitive data (e.g., PII, PCI, intellectual property, financial information, and other business-critical assets), and enforcing governance and regulatory compliance at scale.
“Organizations adopting Salesforce are doing so across their organization”, says CloudLock founder Gil Zimmermann. “As their use of the cloud grows, so does the need for a scalable security solution that can do more than simply audit and report on potential exposures. CIO’s are looking for ways to reduce risk through action.”
