WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwired - Feb 20, 2014) - RSA Conference -- CloudLock, the cloud security pioneer and the world's leading cloud data security company, today announced the launch of CloudLock Selective Encryption™, the world's first purely cloud-based, content-aware, intelligent AES 256-bit encryption solution that allows enterprises to protect their sensitive data stored across multiple SaaS and public cloud platforms, like Salesforce and Google Apps. CloudLock Selective Encryption will be unveiled next week during the 2014 RSA Conference in San Francisco, CA in the CloudLock booth (#2135).

CloudLock Selective Encryption™ is the latest advancement in CloudLock's suite of content-aware compliance and security offerings, which have been adopted by hundreds of enterprises and is protecting millions of its customers' end-users.

Leveraging a people-centric approach to security, CloudLock Selective Encryption™ non-disruptively encrypts only the most sensitive data and allows for both end-user driven encryption as well as corporate-governed encryption, enforced by CloudLock's cloud-based policy engine. CloudLock's detection and response capabilities provide risk-appropriate security controls, allowing customers to enforce higher levels of data security for only the data that requires it.

CIOs and CISOs of global organizations are tasked with determining how best to adopt cloud services to enable transformation and collaboration, all while tackling cloud security and compliance challenges.

"All other cloud security solution providers conduct some kind of man-in-the-middle-attack with in-line gateway encryption or proxy servers to see what is happening," says Gil Zimmermann, CEO & Co-Founder at CloudLock. "The CloudLock approach is to allow organizations to protect data in the cloud, not from the cloud, using appropriate security measures aligned with unique data classification strategies. CloudLock Selective Encryption™ helps customers protect both data that is making its way to the cloud, as well as retroactively protect data already residing in the cloud."

"SaaS will become the de facto standard for buying new applications, bring-your-own-encryption will dominate the security discussion in 2014, cloud security will expand to be much more centralized and automated, and Perimeter security will shift outside the perimeter, where it belongs", predicts leading analyst firm Forrester Research, Inc.1

CloudLock detects sensitive data (e.g., PII, PCI, HIPAA, intellectual property, and other business-critical assets), and allows the largest organizations in the world to extend enterprise compliance and security policies to the public cloud in order to enforce governance and regulatory compliance. CloudLock provides the only solution in the industry that does not require reconfiguration of cloud applications or re-routing of network traffic through single point-of-failure gateways or proxies.

"We built CloudLock's Encryption-as-a-Service (EaaS) solution with the goal of offering a solution that is simple yet robust," says Ron Zalkind, CTO & Co-Founder at CloudLock. "We've heard from hundreds of our customers that the gateway-based and reverse-proxy solutions out there require heavy deployments, are highly prone to breaking cloud apps, and are often unavailable from mobile apps. CloudLock is provisioned completely in the cloud, in minutes. CloudLock is completely seamless to end-users."
