CipherCloud Introduces Cloud Encryption for Amazon RDS and Amazon Redshift

CipherCloud unveiled CipherCloud for Amazon Web Services (AWS) to enable users to encrypt data on Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) and Amazon Redshift, AWS' petabyte-scale data warehouse service. Customers can benefit from the cost savings and elasticity of cloud-based data storage while assuring compliance for sensitive data with a wide array of encryption options. The solution enables organizations to automatically encrypt sensitive information on a field-by-field basis, before it goes to the cloud, while retaining the encryption key. CipherCloud is compatible with AWS database services, preserving the critical format and operations, such as searching and sorting. The solution maximizes security for the cloud by supporting a wide array of encryption options that can be applied on a field-by-field basis. CipherCloud is extending its comprehensive cloud information protection platform, providing AES 256-bit encryption and customer-retained key management to provide tighter control of data in Amazon RDS and Amazon Redshift. These encryption capabilities enable customers to comply with the latest privacy mandates, including GLBA, PCI, HIPAA, HITECH, UK Data Protection Act, UK ICO guidance, the Australian Privacy Amendment Act and US state disclosure laws. Additionally, customers can also integrate other cloud applications for abilities such as offloading file storage into AWS environments to dramatically reduce costs and avoid storage limitations. This extends the ability to leverage AWS for real time database needs, such as cloud bursting for structured data (e.g., names, contact details and account numbers) stored in other clouds. The process is transparent to users as CipherCloud seamlessly encrypts and forwards files to AWS for storage while sending a pointer to the file on other applications where the data remains. CipherCloud will be demoing the new offering in Booth 906 at AWS re:Invent 2013 (November 12-15, 2013 at the Venetian) in Las Vegas, NV.

CipherCloud Delivers Breakthrough Searchable Strong Encryption

CipherCloud has delivered ground breaking techniques to improve the searchability, usability and security of cloud data protected with AES 256-bit encryption. Through these breakthrough advancements, the company continues to extend its technical leadership in cloud information protection by combining the higher levels of security and usability available. The company's 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. The company'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. The company's solution now combines the higher levels of usability and security. The company's Searchable Strong Encryption (SSE) key capabilities include: Comprehensive Protection Platform -- Delivers advanced searching of strongly encrypted data while preserving security, usability and performance. The platform provides the ability to select a preferred protection scheme for each individual field for maximum security and usability; Advance Intuitive Search -- Supports flexible search terms, such as "starts with," "ends with," wild cards, natural language matching and Boolean phrases, compatible with today's Internet search conventions; Strong AES 256-bit Encryption -- Delivers AES 256-bit encryption, the higher commercially available level of encryption with unlimited initialization vectors to maximize randomness; Robust Key Management -- Provides enterprise key management capabilities in compliance with NIST SP 800-57 standards. Multiple key storage options enable keys to be stored securely on the CipherCloud platform or separately on a KMIP-compliant key management server; FIPS Certification; High-performance Scalable Architecture -- Delivers near zero latency while supporting the larger number of companies and government agencies with demanding throughput requirements. Over 2 million users are protected across 14 countries.
