NEW YORK: Cloud platforms have always been a target of hackers because of their “Anything-as-a-Service (AaaS)” architecture which has made the cross platform support much easier. With every gain comes a lax, that’s the reason why Cloud migration takes a lot of time and contemplation from the corporates because security is the single gravest issue during the migration from on-premise architectures to the distributed environments.
Security professional and experts around the globe have worked restlessly to mine out the security issues in the Cloud systems and luckily, a lot has been solved up till now. We have CloudLock in the front row of the Cloud security Startups which have outperformed most of the tech giants. It was just a week ago when CloudLock announced that it has raised $16.5 million in Series C funding led by Bessemer Venture Partners, bringing its total funding to $28.2 million. Now CloudLock has another great news for us.
CloudLock’s much awaited ‘Selective Encryption Program’ for Cloud based security services is going to be live on the RSA conference 2014, which is going to take place in San Francisco.
Selective Encryption Program will lock and intelligently encrypt the information which the system ‘thinks’ is crucial for example the health records, bank records and other form of citizen information which is always been a target of intruders. There will be two main points of encryption: Google apps and Salesforce.com which are always a key in Cloud based systems.
CloudLock’s cofounder is positive enough and thinks that his system will expand in the future to the corporates worldwide and will deplete the hindrances in Cloud migration.
