This Week In The Cloud: CipherCloud Office 365 Offering, Google Apps Partners Up


CipherCloud Extends Data Encryption To Microsoft Office 365

CipherCloud, a cloud encryption vendor, released CipherCloud for Office 365 to cut barriers to data privacy, security, residency and regulatory compliance it says have slowed cloud adoption.

CipherCloud for Office 365 encrypts email messages, calendar and contact data stored in Microsoft's cloud-based Exchange Online and third-party Hosted Exchange, giving businesses control of their messaging data and preventing unauthorized access to organizations' information.

Unlike other email security products, CipherCloud encrypts data-at-rest, data-in-transit and data-in-use in real time. CipherCloud for Office 365 is the latest addition to the CipherCloud Platform, which secures multiple cloud applications including Salesforce, Force.com, Chatter, Gmail and Amazon AWS.
