CloudLock Launches First Cloud-Native CASB Encryption-as-a-Service, Quarantining, and Key Management Solution

CloudLock Encryption and Quarantine Management non-gateway solution provides organizations with risk-appropriate file and folder-level encryption capabilities

Waltham, Mass., Dec. 2, 2015 - CloudLock, the leading provider of Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) and Cybersecurity-as-a-Service solutions, today launched the industry’s first cloud-native CASB encryption-as-a-service, quarantining, and key management solution for SaaS applications. The solution is the first of its kind to not use legacy on-premises gateway or agent and endpoint based approach to encryption.

While cloud application providers offer encryption in-transit and at-rest, securing data within cloud platforms is a difficult task. Considering the exponential growth in adoption of cloud applications, combined with the rise of end users connecting third-party cloud applications to corporate environments, protecting sensitive information from cyber threats and adhering to compliance regulations is crucial. Traditional gateway or proxy-based encryption solutions impair users by disrupting native cloud platform functionality, introducing a single point of failure, and negatively affecting end user productivity in the form of increased latency.

A revolutionary security solution, CloudLock Encryption and Quarantine Management is both risk-appropriate and people-centric. The solution expands cloud DLP, compliance, and governance across cloud environments in a fully automated, policy-driven manner. The unified platform provides a one-stop shop to manage incidents, policies, and orchestration of automation. Customers can now maintain complete control over encrypted content by enabling cryptographic key storage either on-premise or in the cloud with customer-managed keys using solutions such as SafeNet KeySecure.

“When you can provide an unintrusive, people-centric cloud security solution to organizations of any size and scale, it’s one more step to enabling businesses to adopt and grow in the cloud,” said Jennifer Sand, VP Product Management at CloudLock. “Encryption doesn’t have to get in the way or be an all-or-nothing approach and in today’s era of the cloud, that won’t work anyway. That’s what makes CloudLock’s encryption and quarantining solution unique, allowing organizations to fully embrace the benefits that brought them to the cloud in the first place.”

Selective Encryption

  • Automates file protection through quarantine and encryption when a DLP policy is violated
  • Enables users to protect sensitive data through user-driven encryption
  • Removes the need for passwords for user-based access
  • Preserves end user experience and native application behavior through zero-impact architecture model
  • Provides folder-level encryption where employees add files to a folder designated for encryption, all files auto encrypted (think HR adding employee records to a specific folder, automatically encrypted)
  • Empowers users to protect sensitive information with user-driven encryption
  • Flexible key management gives customers the ability to store encryption keys on their own instance or in the cloud using SafeNet KeySecure

“My team and I were very interested when CloudLock shared their new CASB encryption and quarantining capabilities,” said Leo Chaharyn, Technical Director, Systems & Operations Management at Boston College. “CloudLock consistently develops useful security innovations, helping us protect critical assets and users in the cloud through user- and policy-driven encryption, while remaining compliant.”

CloudLock pioneered the API-first approach in the CASB market with the patented and award-winning Cloud Security FabricTM, the industry’s leading Cybersecurity-as-a-Service offering for SaaS, PaaS, IaaS, and IDaaS environments, as well as custom and homegrown apps and ISV offerings.
