The application will allow the security teams to protect data in the cloud
Cloud access security application provider Skyhigh Networks has introduced Skyhigh Secure cloud data protection system which claimed to offer consistent data protection policies across different cloud services.
The features of new system include contextual access control, application auditing, encryption, data loss prevention (DLP), and cloud to cloud access control.
With Skyhigh Secure, the IT and information security teams will be able to protect data in the cloud without changing the end-user experience, the company said.
Skyhigh Networks CEO Rajiv Gupta said that the cloud should be viewed as an asset and not as a threat, but organisations are slow to fully adopt cloud services because of concerns around the security of their data.
"With Skyhigh Secure, we are effectively providing our customers with a virtual ‘cloud edge’ that consistently and transparently enforces their security, privacy, and regulatory policies on their corporate data stored in cloud services," Gupta added.
Skyhigh Secure comes with mobile to cloud features that allow secure access of cloud services directly from mobile devices, provides security that leverages real-time application and usage analytics to detect threats and secure data to and from cloud services.
Additionally, the new cloud security application offers three-click configuration and deployment flexibility with cloud, with option of on-premise, and hybrid delivery.
