WALTHAM, MASSACHUSETTS – (Feb 19, 2013) – CloudLock, the leading cloud information security company, announced that Fairchild Semiconductor has selected the CloudLock Information Security Suite to secure sensitive information, simplify document administration and support eDiscovery requirements within the company’s Google Drive environment.
Fairchild Semiconductor, which has been using Google Apps since 2009, previously experimented with free tools to audit its data. Fairchild’s CIO Paul Lones explains the company need for a forward-looking offering that protects sensitive information at scale with proactive policy management.
“By relying on our SaaS partners to innovate in their domains of expertise, our IT staff can focus on systems that provide unique competitive advantage for Fairchild,” said Lones. “As part of this strategy, we are using Google Drive as our corporate file share and need to protect IP and trade secrets, retain data, and enforce acceptable use policies.”
“Free audit tools currently available did not address our needs. We found CloudLock’s suite of security applications provide enterprise-class, content-aware solutions that will secure millions of documents on Google Drive for thousands of employees without creating more work for our team,” Lones added.
To extend the functionality of Google Apps, Fairchild Semiconductor permits the use of 3rd party apps that integrate with the cloud-based productivity suite.
“To realize the full benefits of Google Apps, we want to enable strategic 3rd party applications but we need to be able to trust the applications that are accessing our corporate data. CloudLock Apps Firewall lets us securely manage these third party apps.”
“Publicly-traded corporations with highly sensitive data view moving to Google Apps as a competitive advantage,” said Gil Zimmermann, CEO of CloudLock. “Using CloudLock’s suite of information security applications, companies like Fairchild Semiconductor are able to take advantage of the benefits of the cloud while achieving the securest form of collaboration with world-class compliance and governance.”
As a global provider of semiconductor solutions, Fairchild Semiconductor addresses important challenges by making household products and industrial technologies more energy efficient and enabling mobile devices with new and innovative features. Headquartered in San Jose California and trading under the NYSE symbol FCS, Fairchild Semiconductor has over 9,000 employees.
