SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CipherCloud, a leader in cloud security and governance, today announced the availability of new advanced data-protection capabilities for SAP ® SuccessFactors ® solutions. Built on CipherCloud's industry-leading Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) platform, the new capabilities help deliver advanced encryption and customer-controlled key management, enabling enterprises to retain full control over sensitive data and meet complex global data privacy requirements as they move to the SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite in the cloud.
As enterprises increasingly move sensitive data to the cloud, they face challenges complying with data privacy, data residency and industry regulations. CipherCloud provides persistent, end-to-end data protection—known as Active Encryption—to encrypt data in use, protecting it from insidious threats including account hijacking, insecure APIs and forced government disclosure. The solution allows enterprises to maintain complete control over sensitive data and prevent unauthorized access because the encryption keys are never shared with outsiders.
