CipherCloud Delivers Breakthrough Searchable Strong Encryption

CipherCloud announced new techniques to improve the searchability, usability and security of cloud data protected with AES 256-bit encryption.

CipherCloud's Searchable Strong Encryption (SSE) solution provides organizations with the ability to strongly encrypt their sensitive information in real time before it's sent to the cloud and exclusively retain their encryption keys. The solution also enables organization 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'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.

"Business users demand security to be transparent," said Pravin Kothari, founder and CEO of CipherCloud. "Applying strong encryption, AES 256-bit, to data while keeping it entirely searchable has been a long-standing challenge. CipherCloud has now raised the bar by enabling the full usability of encrypted data in the cloud, without compromising security or performance."

CipherCloud delivers full protection of an organization'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 organizations to extend data protection to hundreds of third-party cloud and private cloud applications and databases.
