CipherCloud has expanded its encryption capabilities to offer security within any software-as-a-service (SaaS) or cloud-based application.
According to the company, its Connect AnyApp can secure data at rest for public and private cloud applications, whilst preserving its own functionality. Within Connect AnyApp, administrators specify which fields on the web pages to be encrypted and users can select from multiple encryption and tokenisation options.
Once a policy is enabled, data entered for the web application is automatically encrypted or tokenised using CipherCloud's format and operations preserving technology.
Vice president of marketing Kevin Bocek said that as long as the data is within a web application, you can encrypt it and all you need is a URL and applications. “You do not have to wait for CipherCloud to deliver it, this is building on the technology that we are delivering but now you can configure it yourself and set the policies yourself,” he said.
Pravin Kothari, CEO and founder of CipherCloud, said: “Every business and public sector organisation CipherCloud has spoken with asks how they can encrypt data for their own set of third-party and custom web applications. This might be a behind-the-firewall application moving to IaaS or a hot new SaaS social enterprise app.
“The industry's wait is over and now millions of IaaS, SaaS, and PaaS and behind-the-firewall applications can have data-at-rest protected with point-and-click encryption and tokenisation policies without any programming required.”
