(PRWEB) August 10, 2015
Secure Islands, the leading provider of advanced Information Protection and Control (IPC) solutions for data immunization, announced a partnership and joint offering with Cloud Access Security Broker Adallom today. Adallom’s governance and threat prevention features—when combined with Secure Islands’ policy-driven classification and protection capabilities—secures the entire lifecycle (upload, download and collaboration) of documents in the cloud, enabling IT organizations to unlock the benefits of SaaS applications without compromising data security and compliance mandates.
Adallom’s platform gives enterprises visibility, governance and protection for their use of SaaS applications, delivering valuable insights into cloud application usage that address compliance mandates while protecting users in real-time. Secure Islands’ IQProtector automatically embeds classification policies into data upon creation. For data classified as sensitive, IQProtector then automatically embeds encryption and permissions to sensitive files based on the organization’s central policy.
The Adallom and Secure Islands solution enables secure cloud-based file sharing and secure storage of unstructured corporate information, as it allows data to be securely accessed and shared by different users. It also protects data extracted or downloaded in an unstructured data format (such as Excel, CSV etc.) from SaaS applications.
“The rapid and growing adoption of cloud applications offers organizations cost saving and productivity benefits, but companies need assurance that they are not sacrificing the security of their valuable data at the altar of the cloud. The integration of Secure Islands’ IQProtector further extends Adallom’s ability to protect the enterprise by securing sensitive data as it is shared and retrieved from collaborative cloud applications,” said Yinon Costica, Vice President of Product, Adallom.
Key benefits of the joint offering include:
- Robust data security and governance across the entire lifecycle of files—upload, collaboration and download
- The ability to implement and manage granular encryption policies by file classification, document name, owner, content or device
- A seamless user experience where security can be enabled on any user, device, managed or unmanaged
- The ability for organizations to control their own encryption keys
- Consistent security and access rights for files and documents traveling from, to and residing within any cloud application
- Full support of business processes that allow seamless use of cloud, BYOD and collaboration tools in a secure, user-friendly manner
“One of the concerns of IT security teams is the ability to implement and manage data centric security controls in cloud applications, but our partnership with Adallom makes these concerns a non-issue,” said Eyal Manor, Vice President of Product Management, Secure Islands. “Collaboration with fellow innovators such as Adallom ensures our customers extract the maximum benefit from cloud applications. Our joint integration gives organizations full confidence that their data will remain private and secure, even in BYOD scenarios.”
