Late last month the company announced that it had raised $16.5 million in a Series C funding round that would be used to expand its business and invest in existing and new product lines.

The company’s cloud-based offerings help customers enforce their own security, governance, and compliance requirements on their data and users in the cloud.

CloudLock’s solutions help protect sensitive data like PII and PCI stored in cloud services such as Google Apps and Salesforce, by providing DLP, auditing and compliance, data management and end-user security.

CloudLock Selective Encryption is a content-aware, AES 256-bit encryption solution that is the latest feature in CloudLock’s suite of security offerings.

“Leveraging a people-centric approach to security, CloudLock Selective Encryption non-disruptively encrypts only the most sensitive data and allows for both end-user driven encryption as well as corporate-governed encryption, enforced by CloudLock’s cloud-based policy engine,” the company explained. “CloudLock’s detection and response capabilities provide risk-appropriate security controls, allowing customers to enforce higher levels of data security for only the data that requires it.”

“The CloudLock approach is to allow organizations to protect data in the cloud, not from the cloud, using appropriate security measures aligned with unique data classification strategies,” explained Gil Zimmermann, CEO & Co-Founder at CloudLock. “CloudLock Selective Encryption helps customers protect both data that is making its way to the cloud, as well as retroactively protect data already residing in the cloud.”

CloudLock will be demonstrating the solution next week during the 2014 RSA Conference in San Francisco, CA.
