IT security services firm CloudMask, whose technology offers to protect sensitive information
in the cloud, even in the case of a network breach, launched in the United Kingdom today.
CloudMask's technology works on the premise that no one can be trusted with data - including cloud
administrators, governments, employees, and even company IT administrators.
Its "zero trust mode" means that only the owner of the data itself maintains full control
of the decryption keys and decides who should get access to the data.
If needed, workers in the same group can decrypt shared data which is nonetheless inaccessible
to others in the same organization.
The Canadian company, which offers cloud-based tokenisation and encryption technology, is expanding
to Britain after 1 1/2 year selling its wares to government, legal, financial and health care segments and
various enterprises in North America.
About 70 percent of its revenues come from channel partners, however. Its Selective Intelligent
Masking technology allows CloudMask to track, protect and control access of the sensitive data throughout
Strong data encryption, tokenisation and patented masking technology ensure data protection, even
if a hacker has infiltrated a network.
This approach also guards against government snooping and unauthorized access by third-party service
providers, another benefit that is aimed at improving security.
CloudMask has partnered with Entrust, Salesforce, IBM and Amazon to deliver its security services.
The company has launched a channel recruitment program in Britain to support its international expansion.
Channel partners can enhance their security portfolio with CloudMask’s technology, which is an alternative
to special encryption gateways or VPNs.
Data is encrypted from its creation with its application neutral technology, a process CloudMask
argues simplifies the deployment process in comparison with technology from its competitors such as CipherCloud.
CipherCloud's technology works through a gateway while CloudMask offers endpoint to endpoint encryption and
the ability for authorized parties to access data on their mobile devices as well.
CloudMask is primarily channel focused with over 70 percent of its business coming through partners
in North America.
The company is looking to partner with trusted channel resellers in Britain specializing in security
and data privacy.
For target customers, CloudMask offers the promise of helping them to save money by accelerating
their adoption of cloud applications while maintaining visibility and control of their data and maintaining
compliance with data privacy regulations such as the UK's Data Protection Act.
