CipherCloud Encrypts the Cloud

Security is still bugaboo number one when it comes to the cloud. CipherCloud is hoping to make the cloud less scary with encryption offered through the new CipherCloud Database Gateway.

This tool works with a range of cloud types everything from IaaS to PaaS and SaaS.

The database-oriented gateway encrypts the data while it is "at rest." It works with your own database instances such as SQL Server and Oracle cloud installs as well as database services such as Oracle Database Cloud Service, Microsoft SQL Azure and Amazon RDS.

With your data fully encrypted, worries about hackers, compliance, data leakage and privacy should all be curtailed.
