AES Encryption - Data Encryption in the Cloud
Encrypt your data and keep the keys to assure security and compliance
CipherCloud encryption delivers the benefits of the cloud, while assuring security and compliance for your most sensitive information. CipherCloud makes it easy to protect any type of data with standards-based encryption in the cloud that only you can unlock – because no one else can access your encryption keys. And CipherCloud does this without disabling your applications – maintaining business-critical functions like searching, sorting, and reporting while keeping your data encrypted.
CipherCloud uses AES 256-bit cloud encryption, the highest commercially available level of encryption. AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) was established by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and is widely deployed by government and private organizations globally. AES is a symmetric-key algorithm, meaning the same key is used for both encrypting and decrypting the data.
CipherCloud has been tested and approved for FIPS 140-2 certification by Advanced Data Security, a NIST-certified testing lab. Official certification is expected later this year. No other vendor in this space has undergone the lengthy and rigorous process of FIP certification.
Granular Field-Level Control
CipherCloud lets you control security precisely on a per-field basis. With the widest range of encryption options, you can set the level of security and search-ability for each data type, supporting both structured and unstructured fields. Specialized encryption options support dates, phone numbers, decimal numbers, timestamps, email addresses, credit cards and social security numbers.
Many database fields require that the format and structure of the data remain intact while encrypted. For example, a field for credit card numbers expects a 16-digit numeric number, not a longer string of random characters. CipherCloud makes it possible to preserve the length, format of your data while maintaining the highest possible levels of security.
While encrypting your data is important, your users still need to access and use it while it’s protected in the cloud. CipherCloud maintains the functionality of applications with encryption options that preserves critical business functions such as searching, sorting, and reporting, without decrypting it in the cloud. The solution supports wild-card searches, and advanced report filters.
CipherCloud is deployed in many of the world’s largest enterprises, and is highly scalable, delivering high-throughput with extremely low latency. A high-performance stateless architecture requires no local database, making it practical to encrypt any amount of data.
