CipherCloud Launches Asian Pacific Expansion Plans with Sydney Office

Huge growth opportunities for cloud information protection as Australian and New Zealand organisations rapidly move to cloud applications

SYDNEY, Australia, 22 August 2013

CipherCloud, the leader in cloud information protection, today announced that it has opened its Asia Pacific headquarters in Sydney, Australia with plans for rapid expansion in Australia and New Zealand and across the Asia Pacific. The new office will house sales and professional services staff and customer support.

CipherCloud is expanding rapidly, having grown its user base over 80 per cent in the last few months. The company is now protecting more than 2 million cloud application users, with over 250 million customer records across 14 countries. Top organisations in the financial services, insurance, healthcare, government, retail, and high-tech sectors are using CipherCloud to protect their sensitive information in the cloud.

In Australia this week to support the launch, CipherCloud founder and CEO, Pravin Kothari, said the company’s decision to establish a physical presence in Australia has been driven by both existing customers, including some of the largest banks and healthcare companies, and the rapid regional demand for CipherCloud’s portfolio, which providescloud information protection.

CipherCloud enables organisations to securely adopt cloud applications by overcoming data privacy, data sovereignty, security, and regulatory compliance risks.  CipherCloud delivers an open platform with comprehensive security controls including AES 256 -bit encryption, tokenization, cloud data loss prevention, cloud malware detection,  and activity monitoring. CipherCloud’s ground breaking technology protects sensitive information in real time, before it is sent to the cloud, while enabling the organisation to fully control their encryption keys and preserve application usability and functionality.

“Like many countries around the world, Australian organisations want to capitalise on cloud applications in a secure way,” said Kothari. “At the same time, policies such as the Australian Privacy Act, Australian Privacy Act Amendments and New Zealand’s Privacy Act are driving organisations to address data privacy and regulatory compliance. As result, CipherCloud has seen 175 per cent year over year growth.”

The CipherCloud product portfolio supports popular cloud applications out-of-the-box, such as Salesforce,  Chatter, Box,Microsoft® Office 365, Google Gmail, and Amazon Web Services. Additionally, CipherCloud Connect AnyApp and Database Gateway enable organisations to extend data protection to hundreds of other cloud applications and databases.

According to CipherCloud’s Regional Director in Australia, Iman Ghodosi, “CipherCloud is growing rapidly in Australia and New Zealand. The opening of our Asia Pacific headquarters doors is recognition of the amazing growth we’ve achieved in a very short time. We look forward to helping organisations in Australia and New Zealand adopt cloud applications, while ensuring that their sensitive information is fully protected and in compliance with data privacy guidelines.”
