ThinkGrid has launched a new encryption service designed to give customers greater confidence in cloud adoption.
According to the company, ThinkGrid Cloud Encryption protects all files, including emails that are migrated to ThinkGrid's Cloud platform, rendering the data inaccessible without the correct decryption keys. The service is based on Cryptzone's data leak prevention solution and ThinkGrid said it is the first of its kind to integrate AES 256-bit encryption technology into a cloud platform.
Rob Lovell, CEO of ThinkGrid, said: “Security is clearly the last remaining barrier to mainstream business adoption of the cloud but it's a problem that few, if any, cloud service providers are able to currently address.
“Nonetheless, there are certain organisations that want these advantages but are limited by compliance regulations. Cloud encryption further enhances the broader security benefits of this IT model, particularly in high-risk areas such as remote working. Businesses no longer have to worry about lost or stolen devices as all applications and data reside in the cloud and are now fully encrypted.”
