Leading Cloud Security Company Announces New Customers, Upgrades to its Security Suite for Google Apps, and Presents “Securing Google Apps for the Enterprise”

WALTHAM, MA and ORLANDO, FL – October 17, 2011 – CloudLock, the only company that delivers enterprise-class security solutions for organizations using Google Apps, has announced new upgrades to its flagship suite to enable secure collaboration with Cloud Data Leakage Protection (cDLP) for distributed enterprises and will present a session entitled, “Securing GoogleApps for the Enterprise,” at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2011 in Orlando, FL October 16-20, 2011. CloudLock CEO Gil Zimmermann’s presentation will be taking place at the Walt Disney World Dolphin – ITxpo Show Floor – Emerging Technology Pavilion Theater on Wednesday, October 19, 2011 at 2:00 PM.

CloudLock’s new features enable organizations to fully embrace secure collaboration and effectively implement cDLP policies throughout the enterprise. CloudLock’s comprehensive application suite to address the needs of:

  • Business Leadership –with an at-a-glance overview, monitoring and alerts needed to comply with both internal governance and external compliance requirements;
  • IT and Operations – with an effective way to view and manage permissions across all data in the enterprise in an audited and secure manner and
  • End-Users –by enabling secure collaboration without violating organizational policies and guidelines, or the need for rogue collaboration tools.

Key capabilities of CloudLock’s upgraded flagship cloud security solution include:

  • Central Management of All Corporate Data in Subdomains: CloudLock provides the option of defining a “scan scope” to include all subdomains in the organization. This approach allows IT teams to view, manage and control all users and documents in the company from a single dashboard.
  • Delegate Access Management to Organizational Units (OUs): Domain administrators can set CloudLock to scan specific OUs. This allows customers to both skip OUs that are not using Google Docs or Sites and run ad-hoc scans on specific OUs quickly.
  • Delegate to Data Owners: CloudLock provides customers with full visibility to end-users by classifying document exposure and showing how the documents they own are being shared. In the Google Apps permissions structure, end users are the real owners of documents and carry the bulk of the responsibility when it come to securing the documents they create so this functionality is critical in preventing data leaks in the enterprise. The data owners can see their documents classified into four categories:

○   Public Exposure – Documents that are exposed to everyone on the Internet
○   External Exposure – Documents that are exposed to outsiders
○   Internal Exposure – Documents that are shared with everyone in the domain
○   New Exposure – Includes all the newly exposed documents in the last 7 days

A recent CloudLock customer, Dominion Enterprises is a leading marketing services company serving the automotive, commercial vehicle, real estate, apartment rental, travel and employment industries. Dominion Enterprises is using CloudLock Security for Google Apps’ new features, including support for sub-domains and Google Sites, to secure confidential information and establish an audit trail for more than 3,000 nationwide employees in 314 offices in 35 states and 4 countries within the Google Apps collaboration and productivity platform.

“Our move to the cloud has been more about collaboration and efficiency than cost savings. We needed a platform where we could share ideas and best practices and perform our daily functions more efficiently. The only fears we had about moving to Google Apps were related to privacy and security. We wanted to make things easier, but we didn’t want our sensitive data being compromised,” said Joe Fuller, Vice President and CIO, Dominion Enterprises. “CloudLock provides the visibility we need to monitor and eliminate any employee’s risky sharing behavior in the entire Google Apps cloud.”

As a rapidly expanding global company, Dominion Enterprises faces the challenge of managing a distributed environment. Like many innovative companies, Dominion Enterprises uses multiple domains within Google Apps to keep its distributed structure while allowing administrators to manage the entire organization from one central administration panel. The latest upgrade to the CloudLock for Google Apps solution enables the organization to centrally manage all corporate data in subdomains while delegating security and eGRC functions to organizational units.

“CloudLock is dedicated to helping enterprises of all shapes and sizes achieve the best of both worlds with security and cDLP that fosters, rather than restrict, collaboration,” said CloudLock co-Founder and CEO Gil Zimmermann. “Distributed enterprises, academic institutions and companies with M&A operations use CloudLock to gain the ability to consolidate control and delegation for departments and organizational units. CloudLock’s enterprise-class features help even the largest Google Apps customers secure their data and take advantage of operational efficiencies inherent in the Google Apps platform.”
