Cloud information security company CloudLock has launched a new solution designed to detect, classify and secure sensitive data stored in Google Drive in near real-time.
CloudLock for Google Drive provides a content and behavior analytics engine which discovers and classifies sensitive content such as personally identifiable information, intellectual property and financial data, based on an organization’s needs and compliance requirements. The solution, which costs $1.25 per user per month, is agentless and completely non-intrusive, CloudLock said.
In case unprotected sensitive data is discovered, IT administrators and end-users are alerted and provided with recommendations on how to secure it, including by removing file access, changing sharing privileges, and encrypting files. In an effort to help organizations that want to protect their most sensitive data by encrypting it, CloudLock has launched CloudLock Selective Encryption.
Available for $0.75 per user per month, Selective Encryption enables enterprises to encrypt sensitive data stored in Google Drive. According to CloudLock, organizations can leverage the AES 256-bit encryption solution to automatically secure their most sensitive cloud data without any user interaction being required.
CloudLock Selective Encryption supports both end-user-driven and corporate-governed encryption, and it’s designed so that its use doesn’t have a negative impact on real-time collaboration or the virus scans performed by Google, the cloud security company said.
“Cloud adoption is no longer a question but a reality,” commented Gil Zimmermann, CEO at CloudLock. “As organizational data — much of it sensitive or regulated — moves into the cloud, it is increasingly critical that there be a mechanism for finding and responding to risk in near real-time. CloudLock has always been the vanguard of cloud security; with today’s announcement, we are continuing to make it possible for organizations to meet regulatory and internal security requirements in the cloud, faster and more effectively than ever.”
