Waltham, MA - August 5, 2015 – CloudLock, the leading provider of cloud cybersecurity solutions, today announced the industry’s first cloud Cybersecurity-as-a-Service offering for any cloud environment, including off-the-shelf SaaS, IaaS, PaaS, IDaaS, as well as custom and homegrown cloud apps. Additionally, CloudLock has expanded its cloud security fabric to independent software vendors (ISVs) through a suite of cybersecurity APIs, allowing them to integrate CloudLock’s security services directly into their cloud offerings as if they were their own.
The recent wave of cyber attacks and breaches - from Ashley Madison to the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) - clearly show the current security model is fundamentally broken. Network-based, on-premises security solutions such as gateways or proxies limit the visibility of security teams, as they are incapable of monitoring or controlling today’s growing volume of cloud-to-cloud traffic. Through an alternative, API-driven approach to security, organizations can leverage the greatest strengths of the cloud - scale, ubiquitous connectivity, and the accessibility of near-infinite computing power - to combat one of the biggest obstacles to cloud adoption: security.
“As cyber threats increase pressure on security leaders CloudLock integrates nicely with our security philosophy, enabling us to secure our cloud environment while we scale our business at a high velocity,” said Jon Hanny, associate director, information security at SNL Financial. “CloudLock adds a layer of visibility and security allowing us to better protect our global operations by monitoring suspicious activities and alerting on potential threats."
Recognizing that most cloud interactions circumvent traditional networks and happen cloud-to-cloud and machine-to-cloud, CloudLock’s cloud-native solution delivers cloud cybersecurity in a completely new way. Delivered as a service, CloudLock’s unified Cloud Security Fabric connects and secures any app natively from the cloud in the cloud through a series of CloudLock Cybersecurity APIs. CloudLock pioneered the API-first approach in the Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) market. In a March 2015 report, one of Gartner’s recommendations is to “favor CASB vendors that support the API mode of access. It has the lightest touch on end users, and, therefore, a greater chance of business acceptance.”
“We see CloudLock as an extension of our security team, and value their security intelligence insight as much as their product innovation,” said Nick Bleech, head of information security at Travis Perkins, PLC. “With CloudLock, we can drive adoption while gaining visibility into our users’ SaaS activity in real-time, without gateways or hassles.”
CloudLock’s offerings include:
CloudLock for Businesses
CloudLock’s cybersecurity offerings help organizations address common cloud security challenges including threat protection, cloud data loss prevention and governance, app discovery and control, risk, compliance as well as security forensics.
CloudLock for Developers
With CloudLock, developers can bake security into their applications from day one through API-based integration, allowing ISVs to bring products to market faster, with confidence in their security integrity and without losing focus on their core competencies.
CloudLock is the only security vendor combining unique U.S. and Israeli Military Intelligence with real-time, crowdsourced cloud security insight. CloudLock continuously monitors more than one billion files daily across more than 10 million users. Security professionals feed into CloudLock’s unique security insight with peer-driven, crowdsourced “Community Trust Ratings”. This intelligence allows organizations to respond immediately to emerging cloud cyber threats and insecure apps. Recent research from the CloudLock CyberLab revealed more than 45,000 instances of highly-privileged users authorizing third-party cloud applications with excessive access scopes to connect to corporate environments - a highly risky practice that increases the likelihood of data breach.
“CloudLock makes security an enabler of innovation, not a roadblock. It’s not about telling your users what not to do; it’s about helping them achieve what they need to do their jobs better,” said Gil Zimmermann, CEO and co-founder of CloudLock. “Our approach bakes security into the cloud through a cloud-native strategy that puts security first. Customers can now set the highest security and compliance bars for the applications they buy, build, and sell. It can no longer be an afterthought.”
