Cloud security is on everyone's minds, and that's good news for CipherCloud, a provider of cloud encryption gateways for private and public clouds.
In December, the San Jose, Calif., company received $30 million in funding from Andreessen Horowitz, Index Ventures and T-Systems, the venture arm of Deutsche Telekom.
CipherCloud's gateway acts as a platform to secure user data for applications, including Salesforce.com, Gmail, Chatter and Amazon Web Services. The gateway incorporates security controls, including tokenization, activity monitoring and malware detection.
