CipherCloud Expands Open Platform Strategy Through Industry-First Cloud Data Loss Prevention

    Provides Additional Security Layers for In-Depth Protection
                           in the Cloud

Today, CipherCloud, the leader in cloud information protection,
announced the inclusion of data loss prevention (DLP) in its Open
Platform strategy to enable organizations to adopt cloud applications
with confidence.

Now, customers can leverage CipherCloud's Open Platform to monitor and
enforce policies on information shared across all of their cloud
applications unlike the older generation of DLP solutions. By including
cloud DLP in its Open Platform technology, CipherCloud is extending its
powerful information protection measures into the cloud.

Additionally, CipherCloud's cloud DLP enforces stronger security by
deciphering, detecting and encrypting information exchanged between
clients and the cloud. This delivers a critical feature that legacy DLP
fails to provide for organizations that are sharing information in the
cloud and through mobile applications.

CipherCloud's Open Platform also supports industry standard interfaces
for integrating seamlessly with an organization's existing security
infrastructure. CipherCloud's technology provides:

  --  An open ecosystem of integration support for customers using legacy DLP
      and anti-malware software for existing policy management such as
      Symantec(TM) and McAfee(R)
  --  Single Sign-on (SSO) and Access Management across multiple partners,
      including CA(TM) SiteMinder, Microsoft(R), Ping Identity(R),
      Symplified(R) and BiTKOO(R)
  --  Activity monitoring integration with industry leading solutions from
      HP(R) ArcSight(TM) and Splunk(TM)

"CipherCloud is delivering a game-changing open platform to provide
protection for information before it ever leaves the organization,"
said Pravin Kothari, CipherCloud founder and CEO. "This approach
enables organizations to effectively solve multiple security issues -
including data privacy, residency, security, and compliance -- through
a single gateway, by bringing a previously unavailable level of
security to cloud applications."

By delivering the industry's first cloud DLP technology, CipherCloud
broadens the capabilities of its single point of access for all cloud
applications, which comprises a robust suite of detection, protection,
enforcement, and monitoring capabilities:

  --  Comprehensive Protection Platform -- A single gateway delivers
      encryption, tokenization, key management, user activity logging, DLP,
      and malware protection
  --  Military Grade Encryption -- Operations-preserving encryption that
      protects sensitive information before it is sent to the cloud
  --  Enforce Data Loss Protection: Custom DLP policies that scan, detect, and
      take action to protect sensitive information in any field or document,
      providing an additional level of security and control
  --  Deliver Malware Detection: Information exchanges including external and
      internal user uploaded attachments are screened in real-time for virus,
      malware and other embedded threats
  --  Provide Activity Monitoring: Security dashboards report on activities to
      monitor out of compliance users

The CipherCloud platform provides universal support for commercially
available enterprise cloud applications for CRM, collaboration, and
email, which include, Chatter,, Microsoft
Office 365, Google Gmail and tailored solutions through CipherCloud's
Connect AnyApp gateway. Today, CipherCloud is also announcing an
important addition to its portfolio with the introduction of
CipherCloud for Box. This new solution delivers data loss prevention
and malware screening, providing an additional level of security to
cloud content sharing through Box.
