A Year of Cloud Security Transformation
CloudLock revolutionized the cloud security landscape by launching the CloudLock Security Fabric, a transformative unified cloud security solution that allows organizations to fully embrace the benefits of public cloud applications securely and in a completely non-invasive way. The SaaS-based Cloud Security Fabric gives organizations the visibility and control they need to protect sensitive data - payment card information (PCI), protected health information (PHI), personally identifiable information (PII), intellectual property (IP) - across a number of public cloud apps such as Google Apps, Salesforce, Dropbox, Box, ServiceNow and more than 9,000 connected cloud apps.
Additionally, the Company:
"We’ve reached a point in the cloud industry where it’s no longer a question of adoption for many companies, but rather an acknowledgement of what is already going on within the cloud and how to best manage and protect it," said Gil Zimmermann, co-founder and CEO of CloudLock. “The fourth quarter launch of the Security Fabric was a huge milestone for CloudLock in that we provide one platform, across multiple cloud environments, for our customers who are looking to take full advantage of all the cloud has to offer and our continued growth and momentum supports this opportunity and need."
Funding and Growth
In 2014, CloudLock raised $24 million in additional funding from new investors Bessemer Venture Partners and salesforce.com, and participation of existing investors Cedar Fund and Ascent Venture Partners. CloudLock is leveraging this funding to expand in new markets, invest in existing and expanded product lines, and substantially grow its operations in the U.S., Europe, and Israel.
CloudLock also acquired the intellectual property of Innovode Ltd, the Bristol, UK company behind Innovode Armor, in June 2014. CloudLock hired the key team members behind the Innovode Armor product, an integrated encryption solution for Google Drive.
The Company also announced it successfully completed a SSAE16 SOC 2 Type 2 audit for its cloud security platform for the third consecutive year, as well as its achievement of SOC 3 Certification.
