CipherCloud Acquires Anicut Systems - Adaptive Security as a Service

CipherCloud, which provides cloud visibility and data protection, announced the acquisition of Anicut Systems, a privately held provider of adaptive security as a service. Financial terms were not disclosed.

CipherCloud said Anicut's technology enhances its cloud discovery, data protection and monitoring platform by bringing additional intelligence and security controls that help organizations defend against a fast evolving threats landscape. Anicut provides advanced cloud security analysis of real-time traffic using machine learning to detect malicious insider and external threats. The technology detects both high risk clouds and high risk user activities in their use of cloud services based on over 60 attributes to detect advanced attacks on cloud services such as spear phishing and watering hole. It also enables administrators to effectively configure and enforce corporate cloud use policies.

CipherCloud's open platform provides cloud application discovery and risk assessment, data protection – searchable strong encryption, tokenization, data loss prevention, key management and malware detection – and extensive user activity and anomaly monitoring services.

"We continue to raise the bar for cloud security," said Pravin Kothari, founder and CEO of CipherCloud. "The rapid pace of cloud adoption by organizations requires deep intelligence into cloud threats and real-time protection for data across clouds. We are making this investment to go deeper into cloud visibility and security given the clear demand."
