How it Works
CipherCloud gives you a control point for corporate data going to and from the cloud. A reverse-proxy architecture connects all your users – internal, remote, or mobile – seamlessly to Office 365 while enabling you to enforce corporate security policies and obtain. In addition, a built-in mail transfer agent (MTA) ensures that all inbound email for your organization is encrypted before being delivered to a user’s cloud-based mailbox.
The process is transparent to authorized users and preserves the functionality of Office 365 while delivering Office 365 email encryption. CipherCloud provides FIPS 140-2 validated AES-256 encryption for your email, calendar, contacts, and attachments, before they get stored in the cloud. Granular policy controls let you select appropriate Office 365 security levels on a field-by-field basis for structured or unstructured data.
When Office 365 email is encrypted by CipherCloud, the critical encryption keys always remain within your organization. If your protected data is accessed in the cloud by an unauthorized user, it’s indecipherable to anyone who doesn’t possess the keys.
CipherCloud’s patented technology retains the format and functioning of Office 365, even when data is encrypted. Users can search and sort protected data returning results immediately, while detailed audit monitoring provides unprecedented visibility into cloud usage, security, and content.
The solution is highly scalable, and adds negligible latency with a stateless architecture and is easily deployed on physical or virtual servers as well as private cloud deployments.
