To help organizations adopt software-as-a-service offerings such as Salesforce.com, Box, Gmail, Office365, and Xactly without risking data exposure, impacting business processes or sacrificing SaaS functionality, Protegrity, a provider of data security solutions, is extending its data security platform into the cloud with the introduction of the Protegrity Cloud Gateway.
“Our clients have told us that current cloud data protection gateways cannot be configured easily by their internal teams, don’t always recognize the sensitive data that needs to be protected, negatively impact the speed or functionality of the SaaS solutions, or have limited scalability,” said Suni Munshani, CEO of Protegrity. “Ushering in the next generation of cloud data security, the Protegrity Cloud Gateway addresses these concerns and responds to our clients’ demand to have us apply the same trusted technology we use to protect their core on premise systems to their ever-growing adoption of cloud applications and services.”
Deployed in an appliance framework, Protegrity Cloud Gateway sits between cloud applications and users, replacing sensitive data with format-preserving tokens or encrypted values before being sent to the cloud. A gateway server cluster handles the traffic to and from the cloud, while the Protegrity Enterprise Security Administrator (ESA) provides client security teams central control of policy, protection methods, automated key management, security event alerting, reporting and auditing.
