CipherCloud Introduces Connectors for Amazon Web Services

CipherCloud has introduced CipherCloud out-of-the-box connectors for Amazon Web Services (AWS) allowing organizations that use AWS to implement encryption, tokenization and masking to protect sensitive data on-the-fly, before it is sent to the cloud.

All these tasks are done without impacting functionality, usability or performance, according to CipherCloud, a provider of award-winning encryption gateways for cloud platforms and applications.
The company notes that CipherCloud’s data protection platform provides enhanced security features to those ISVs that are developing solutions on Amazon EC2. Through the expansion of support for AWS, the company is unifying data security policies across multiple enterprise cloud services.

Amazon Web Services provides organizations of all sizes with secure, cost-effective IT services that power their businesses. In addition to the investments we make in infrastructure and platform security, we support customers deploying additional security solutions to optimize protection for their individual business needs,” said Terry Wise, director of business development for AWS. “CipherCloud’s approach to securing data provides customers and ISVs with additional tools to help them optimize their security standards and meet their compliance objectives.”

Enterprises know the cloud provides operational and economic benefits that improve efficiency and cut costs, but security and compliance concerns are top of mind. CipherCloud provides an innovative cloud encryption gateway for customers and partners to address these requirements,” said Pravin Kothari, founder and CEO, CipherCloud. “AWS is one of the most prominent enterprise cloud platforms in the world. Armed with CipherCloud, AWS developers can provide additional security and compliance controls to further enhance security for AWS and increase platform adoption.”

Elaborating more on its key innovation, CipherCloud’s says that the application-level cloud encryption gateway can perform encryption and tokenization of sensitive data on an item-by-item basis, as data is proxied.
Businesses can store this data in a cloud service, without impacting the data’s functionality and usability.

The company also offers CipherCloud Connect Open API that enables CipherCloud integration with any web application running on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). Looking forward, CipherCloud is set to launch out-of-the-box connectors and tools that can be applied to Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and Amazon Simple Database (SimpleDB).  Businesses have the option of selecting from a range of encryption and tokenization strategies, and the encryption keys always remain with the customer.
