AlephCloud

CEO: Jieming Zhu

AlephCloud has developed technology that provides security and privacy policy enforcement for sharing data using public cloud services. The company's cloud-based Content Canopy platform supports Box, Dropbox, Google Drive and other popular services. It encrypts sensitive data and supports compliance enforcement by auditing the use of the services.

The Sunnyvale, Calif.-based firm assures content owners that neither the cloud provider nor AlephCloud can view the data. The data is encrypted before it is uploaded to the cloud service, helping businesses gain control over the information and prove chain of custody. Users can create a group of trusted individuals to securely share documents.

The service supports Windows, Mac OS, iOS and support for Android devices is coming soon, according to the company. Businesses pay a monthly fee for licensed users.
