CipherCloud delivers searchable strong encryption
CipherCloud has delivered techniques to improve the searchability, usability and security of cloud data protected with AES 256-bit encryption.
The solution also enables organisations to comply with government regulations and industry mandates including – GLBA, PCI, HIPAA and HITECH, the EU Data Protection Act, UK ICO guidance, the Australian Privacy Amendment Act and US State Privacy laws.
CipherCloud delivers protection of an organisation’s structured and unstructured information in popular cloud applications including – salesforce.com, Box, Microsoft Office 365, Google Gmail, Amazon Web Services and many more. Additionally, CipherCloud for Any App and CipherCloud for Databases enable organisations to extend data protection to hundreds of third-party cloud and private cloud applications and databases.
“Compliance for sensitive data frequently requires the use of encryption when it is sent across public communication networks,” said Brian Lowans, Principal Research Analyst at Gartner. “In fact, this should be considered as standard practice for all cloud-based applications accessed via public networks to avoid eavesdropping.
CipherCloud’s SSE technology leverages its gateway architecture to provide secure local index and search operations while sending the strongly encrypted data to the cloud and protecting it from all external threats. This solution enables natural language, wild cards and Boolean searches of AES 256-bit encrypted data. Other available techniques on the market lack searchability or require complex deployments of local databases or rely only on partial data encryption.
