CipherCloud, the leader in cloud encryption, has been recognised by the UK’s leading IT security experts as Best Product in the head-to-head CISO’s Den competition held Thursday, July 12, 2012. Organised by the UK chapter of the ISSA (Information Systems Security Association), the CISO’s Den pitted a dozen innovative solution providers against each other in 10 minute pitching sessions aboard the HMS President in London. At the end of the day, UK ISSA members voted CipherCloud as the Best Product for 2012. ISSA is the world's leading association of cyber security leaders, bringing together security subject matter experts and thought leaders globally.
“CipherCloud stood out among other leading UK IT security innovators as Best Product. ISSA-UK members are leaders in some of the world’s most advanced and security conscious organisations. To be named Best Product, a solution must demonstrate an exceptional degree of innovation and deliver unparalleled value for its customers,” said Tim Holman, ISSA-UK president. “Congratulations to CipherCloud developers, customers, and partners for forging a compelling solution that removes the barriers to cloud adoption.“
CipherCloud eliminates the data privacy, residency, security, and regulatory compliance concerns that have held back cloud adoption in businesses and government. This week, CipherCloud further expanded its solution offering to protect even more clouds with CipherCloud for Office 365, which transparently encrypts all email message, calendar, and contact data stored in Microsoft’s cloud-based Exchange Online and third-party Hosted Exchange. 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.
“CipherCloud is honoured to be judged Best Product by the UK’s leading IT security association,” said Richard Olver, Regional Director of EMEA at CipherCloud. “The competition was fierce, but CipherCloud’s unique approach to cloud encryption and cloud tokenisation, and its gateway technology put CipherCloud far ahead of the competition.”
