Advanced Cloud Encryption Security
CipherCloud’s encryption gateway uses AES 256-bit 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, using the same key is used for both encrypting and decrypting the data, providing high performance and scalability.
Cloud Encryption Solutions that Preserve Search Functions
CipherCloud encryption solutions are unique in delivering the highest levels of security, while preserving the functionality of encrypted data and the user experience. Patented SSE technology provides secure virtual indexing at the cloud encryption gateway while sending the strongly encrypted data to the cloud. This unique solution enables natural language searches, wild cards, Boolean phrases and support for flexible search terms, such as “starts with” or “ends with,” compatible with today’s Internet search conventions.
CipherCloud encryption solutions have 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.
Encryption in the Cloud Possible with 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.
High Performance Architecture
CipherCloud encryption gateways are deployed in many of the world’s largest enterprises. Highly scalable, these encryption gateways deliver high-throughput with extremely low latency. A high-performance stateless architecture requires no local database, making it practical to encrypt any amount of data.
Cloud Encryption Solutions That Preserve Format and Function
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 and format of your data while maintaining the highest possible levels of security. CipherCloud cloud encryption gateway also maintains the functionality of applications with encryption options that preserves critical business functions such as sorting and reporting, without decrypting the data in the cloud.
