CloudLock Granted Patent for its Cloud-Native Cybersecurity Platform

Patent 9,141,628 B1 covers API-centric entity correlation and relationship modeling, resulting in smarter cyber intelligence

Waltham, Mass, Nov. 10, 2015 - CloudLock, the leading provider of CASB and Cybersecurity-as-a-Service solutions, today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued US Patent 9,141,628 B1 to the company for its cloud-native cybersecurity platform. The patent relates to APIs that provide access to cloud-native entity relationship modeling for behavior, context and content entities, in connection with cloud applications, Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) solutions and devices.

Using an API-first approach, the CloudLock® Smart Security ModelerTM correlates various risk factors from numerous applications and devices into a unified behavioral and contextual model. This helps organizations gain a clear understanding of the risk associated with cloud usage across users, data and applications.

The CloudLock Smart Security Modeler is a key component of the CloudLock® Security FabricTM, the industry’s first Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) and Cybersecurity-as-a-Service offering for any cloud environment, including off-the-shelf SaaS, IaaS, PaaS, IDaaS, as well as custom and homegrown cloud applications.

Traditional network-based, on-premises security solutions such as gateways or proxies limit cloud risk visibility for security teams, as those solutions cannot capture, monitor and control off-network traffic, such as cloud-to-cloud traffic. Through its innovative cloud-native, API-first approach to security, CloudLock helps organizations leverage the greatest strengths of cloud - scale, ubiquitous connectivity, and the accessibility of near-infinite computing power, both on and off network, in real-time and retroactively, while addressing one of the biggest obstacles to cloud adoption: security.

“As the pioneer for the cloud-native approach to CASB and Cybersecurity-as-a-Service, CloudLock is changing the way organizations are leveraging APIs to achieve centralized visibility and remediation across their entire multi-cloud environments,” said Ron Zalkind, co-founder and CTO at CloudLock. “This patent is further validation for how unique our approach is as we continue the march toward improved modelling and smarter cyber intelligence.”
