CipherCloud Extends Partnership with T-Systems to Deliver Cloud Visibility and Security
Companies Will Jointly Deliver Cloud Discovery Assessments and Data Protection Services
FRANKFURT, Germany — November 29, 2016 — CipherCloud a leader in cloud security and visibility, today announced it has extended its partnership with T-Systems to provide data protection and Shadow IT discovery services to business customers.
The partnership combines CipherCloud’s market leading cloud security technology with the strength of T-System’s security services, expertise and managed service capabilities. An example of this is a new Shadow IT assessment service delivered by T-Systems and powered by CipherCloud’s cloud access security control (CASB) technology.
With the rapid adoption and accessibility of cloud services, the use of unsanctioned cloud applications, known as Shadow IT, has grown exponentially, bringing a new set of security and data protection challenges. To help enterprises discover unsanctioned or dangerous cloud applications, the Cloud Discovery Scan quickly identifies all cloud applications in use by an organization, the risks they present and steps they can take to protect sensitive data.
T-Systems will also deliver CipherCloud’s persistent, end-to-end encryption and tokenization solutions to help enterprises maintain direct control and data privacy across multiple clouds while never sharing encryption keys with cloud providers or outsiders. The CipherCloud CASB platform provides visibility and control across a wide range of cloud applications including SAP SuccessFactors, Salesforce, Adobe Analytics, and ServiceNow, with tight integration that preserves the functionality of the cloud services.
T-Systems and CipherCloud will demonstrate the data protection services and offer Shadow IT assessments during the Telekom Magenta Security Congress 2016 which takes place November 29-30 in Frankfurt, Germany.
“Many enterprises underestimate the use of unsanctioned cloud applications in their organizations and the security risks they present,” said Dev Ghoshal, senior vice president of Global Alliances & Customer Success at CipherCloud. “We’re pleased to extend our partnership with T-Systems to provide customers with effective data protection and Shadow IT discovery services that enable them to protect their sensitive and confidential data.”
“We’ve worked closely with CipherCloud to provide advanced data protection and encryption services to help customers adopt the cloud while maintaining control over their sensitive data,” said Francisco Pérez León of T-Systems International, Digital Division – Partner Products & Ecosystems. “With our new Cloud Discovery Scan, enterprises now have a quick and easy way to identify unsanctioned cloud applications and take immediate steps to protect their data.”
