While the majority of cloud application providers offer encryption in transit and at rest, many organizations are looking for an additional layer of protection and control over their most sensitive information assets. Meanwhile, encryption methodologies often introduce complications in the form of performance implications or interfering with the end user experience, such as reporting or search functionality.
CloudLock’s API-Driven, Cloud-Native Approach
With CloudLock, we can leverage policy-driven, automated encryption as a response action to DLP policy violation. For instance, when sensitive content is discovered within a file that violates DLP policy, we can automatically encrypt it to protect that sensitive information, all while preserving the end user experience and real-time coauthoring.
Additionally, we enable user-driven encryption flows, whereby users can protect the data they deem most sensitive while reducing the workload on IT and security staff.
CloudLock also enables folder-level encryption, whereby specific folders can be designated to encrypt all the files within. A great example of a use case for this could be an HR employee looking to store information containing employee records in the cloud. By designating a specific folder as the repository, IT and security staff can remain confident that such sensitive information isn’t going to be leaked to the public. Meanwhile, the HR team gets to leverage all the benefits of cloud file sync and share applications.
Last, but certainly not least, CloudLock enables organizations to centrally manage and store cryptographic keys with industry-leading key management solutions. This allows them to maintain ultimate control over encrypted content.
