CipherCloud Introduces Cloud Information Protection for Box

CipherCloud for Box solution delivers an additional level of security for cloud content sharing

London, UK; 25 Feb. 2013 – Today CipherCloud, the leader in cloud information protection, introduced CipherCloud for Box to extend data privacy, residency, security and regulatory controls to organisations using Box’s content collaboration platform.

Despite explosive growth in the cloud content and collaboration market and its evident advantages to productivity and cost efficiencies, information protection requirements continue to be the primary hurdle for enterprise adoption.

The CipherCloud for Box solution delivers data loss prevention to scan, detect and take action to protect sensitive organisational information, providing an additional level of security and control for business collaboration and content sharing on Box.

Mutual customers – particularly organisations in the financial services, healthcare, e-commerce and technology sectors – can leverage this solution to meet industry compliance mandates, including GLBA, PCI, HIPAA, HITECH, PIPEDA, ITAR and EU Data Protection.

This is enabled via the CipherCloud Open Platform, which provides cloud information protection, encryption, malware detection and cloud user activity auditing for organisations to securely adopt cloud applications.

“Our collaboration with Box supports our vision for building trust in the cloud by eliminating concerns about security and regulatory compliance” said Pravin Kothari, Founder & CEO of CipherCloud. “Together, Box and CipherCloud are taking information protection to the next level, giving companies the confidence to embrace popular commercial cloud applications anywhere, anytime, and realise the cost savings and efficiencies they bring.”

“As the enterprise choice for content collaboration in the cloud, we have always taken our customers’ security and compliance concerns seriously,” said Whitney Bouck, general manager of Enterprise at Box. “This integration with CipherCloud extends additional information protection controls to customers while preserving the usability and functionality that sets Box apart from other cloud content solutions.”

The product will be demonstrated at the CipherCloud booth (# 556) at the 2013 RSA Security Conference 25 February – 1 March at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
