CloudLock Expands Security and Compliance Solution to Salesforce
CloudLock, a provider of cloud information security solutions, this week announced that it has extended its security suite to cover popular cloud service Salesforce.com.
Using CloudLock’s technology, Salesforce customers can implement their compliance and security policies and automatically and continuously secure their Salesforce.com objects.
Additionally, customers can locate and highlighting sensitive data (e.g., PII, PCI, intellectual property, financial information, and other business-critical assets), stored in Salesforce.com and enforce governance and regulatory compliance, the company said.
“Historically, organizations have used Profiles, Permission Sets and Roles to attempt to restrict access to regulated and sensitive information,” the company explains on its website. “This is only partially effective: to apply effective data governance and privacy policies to Salesforce, you first need to know where your most sensitive data is.”
According to the company, organizations that use Salesforce can leverage CloudLock’s solution to address the following needs:
• Enforcing Regulatory and Security Compliance – Where is your sensitive data stored within Salesforce? (Examples include PCI,PII,PHI, IP, and client/financial data.) Who has Access to It? Who did what with it?
• Location Aware Auditing – Who is exporting this sensitive data? Where are they accessing it from?
• Sandbox Security – How do you ensure that your Salesforce sandboxes do not contain sensitive customer data?
“Organizations adopting Salesforce are doing so across their organization”, said CloudLock founder Gil Zimmerman. “As their use of the cloud grows, so does the need for a scalable security solution that can do more than simply audit and report on potential exposures. CIO’s are looking for ways to reduce risk through action.”
The combination of CloudLock’s Compliance Scan technology with its Policy Engine protection allows organizations to enforce their acceptable use policies instantly, across their entire Salesforce environment.
