CloudLock Launches Industry's First Adaptive CASB Security Platform

CloudLock Unveils Largest Cloud Security Orchestration Ecosystem to Deliver Expanded Native CASB Multi-Mode Offering

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 3, 2016) - RSA -- CloudLock®, the leading provider of Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) and Cybersecurity-as-a-Service solutions, today announced the industry's first adaptive, cloud-native multi-mode CASB platform combining advanced cloud analytics, community intelligence, cloud risk insight and cybersecurity ecosystem orchestration to comprehensively address cloud security risks.

Security experts agree that traditional network-centric approaches need to be combined with new cloud paradigms to provide a comprehensive security strategy, but the security industry has been slow to respond. According to Gartner Research: "Enterprises are overly dependent on blocking and prevention mechanisms that are decreasingly effective against advanced attacks. Comprehensive protection requires an adaptive protection process integrating predictive, preventive, detective and response capabilities."1

"The new security paradigm demands security be where the users and the data are," said Gil Zimmermann, CEO and co-founder at CloudLock. "Increasingly, the cloud and mobile devices along with new collaboration services have become ubiquitous. Organizations need to build an intelligent and coordinated security ecosystem to survive and thrive in this new cloud economy. This is what we call an Adaptive Security Platform."

The CloudLock Adaptive Security Platform enables unprecedented detective, preventive, response, and predictive capabilities to combat emerging cloud cyberthreats. Key components of the platform include:

  • Threat intelligence leverages internal and external threat intelligence feeds, including insight into the trustworthiness of objects (e.g., IP address reputation and domains).
  • Cloud vulnerability insight with cross-platform insight into user and entity behavior and incidents across a multitude of cloud applications, including location-based anomalous activity detection, analyzing over 80 variables to detect suspicious behavior.
  • Community intelligence with the largest peer-driven, community-sourced analysis of cloud applications in the world, including insight across millions of users, over 750 customers, 101,000 unique applications, enabling enterprises to share CloudLock Crowdsourced Community Trust Ratings for connected cloud applications, best practices, knowledge, and techniques in a real-time, peer-to-peer format.
  • Cyber research from CloudLock's CyberLab, founded by elite Israeli cyber security researchers and data scientists, provides actionable cybersecurity intelligence from crowd-sourced security analytics across billions of data points, revealing unique insights on cybersecurity threats.
  • Centralized policies across cloud platforms that leverage patented Entity Correlation and Relationship Monitoring along with rule-based policies and machine learning to provide security incident information. Policies include automated detection of industry and location-specific information and are fully customizable.
  • Unified contextual analysis framework across cloud environments to inform intelligent security analysis by evaluating activity in the context of typical access patterns such as time of day or geolocation.
  • The CloudLock Cybersecurity Orchestrator™ aggregates data feeds across existing IT infrastructure to enrich security intelligence, improve incident detection, and harmonize data protection across the enterprise.

As part of the Adaptive CASB Security Platform, CloudLock has unveiled its Orchestration Ecosystem Partner Program, naming several key security leaders as founding members, including AirWatch, Centrify, Check Point, FireEye, Okta, OneLogin, RSA and Zscaler. By aggregating the formerly siloed data streams of leading security solutions, the CloudLock Cybersecurity Orchestrator identifies anomalous behavior and threats that would otherwise go unnoticed -- and then automates response actions across technologies leveraging the strengths of each individual component. The Orchestration Ecosystem Partner Program is rapidly garnering industry support, onboarding new partners to extend security capabilities to enterprises across the globe.

Unlike point-to-point integrations, the power of CloudLock orchestration ecosystem lies in leveraging organizations' existing security investments to provide richer and deeper security intelligence. For example, the combination of CloudLock and OneLogin can provide real-time, automated inline access control, i.e. a cloud-native login proxy, based on threat intelligence of more than 101,000 applications and contextual insight from dozens of parameters including location, device, and behavior to block or suspend a user in real-time from suspicious activity, whether within a cloud app or across all of their cloud services.
