HOUSTON, July 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Microsoft WPC 2013 — According to Gartner, the number of cloud email users will increase by five times from 50 million in 2013 to 273 million in 2017. This rapid adoption underscores the value of the cloud in lowering costs and creating competitive advantages, but the transition also creates the need to overcome data privacy, residency, security, and regulatory compliance risks of sensitive information in the cloud.
To help organizations overcome these risk barriers, CipherCloud, the leader in cloud information protection, will showcase its CipherCloud for Office 365 offering in booth #2024 at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC). By protecting Office 365 with enterprise class encryption, the solution mitigates against cloud threats, hackers and accidental leakage of information in the cloud. At the same time, the operations-preserving encryption delivers a seamless user experience so that application functions, such as searching, sorting and reporting, remain unaltered.
Through this approach, CipherCloud offers end-to-end encryption for Office 365 with full support for emails, contacts, calendars and attachments and enables the organization to retain the keys for tighter security control of their sensitive data. By encrypting sensitive data before it leaves an organization’s network and giving the organization exclusive control over the encryption keys, CipherCloud ensures security and compliance for sensitive information residing in Office 365.
Additional enhancements provide security controls for mitigating cloud risks, including:
- Enabling Office 365 email capabilities, such as, archiving and e-discovery, anti-virus and anti-spam capabilities, cloud data loss prevention (DLP), custom mail routing, recipient policies, alerts, reporting and Exchange Online management tools
- Delivering conditional email encryption provides policy-based rules, such as, automatically encrypting emails from specified user groups as well as attachments containing personally identifiable information
- Supporting hybrid deployments so organizations can combine on-premise Exchange with cloud email systems
- Enabling all mobile devices and Outlook clients without requiring additional software
