CipherCloud Launches Industry's First Cloud Encryption Partner Program, Forges Alliance Of Cloud Innovators

First to Certify Encryption with Cloud Services to Eliminate Barriers to Cloud Adoption

SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 20, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CipherCloud, the leader in cloud encryption, has brought together leading cloud technology innovators, including AppExtremes, DBSync, ClaimVantage, and Ping Identity® to create the industry's first cloud encryption technology partner program. Businesses and governments using CipherCloud to eliminate the data privacy, residency, security, and compliance barriers to cloud adoption are now assured of seamless, certified interoperability with solutions from CipherCloud Connect Technology Partners.

The program is another industry first for CipherCloud. Earlier this month, CipherCloud introduced the new CipherCloud Connect AnyApp which for the first time allows businesses and governments to encrypt millions of public and private cloud Web applications with simple configuration.

"Data needs to flow securely among cloud applications for enterprises to move their most valuable business processes to the cloud," said Mark Whiteside, COO of AppExtremes. "CipherCloud is the leader in cloud encryption, and the CipherCloud Connect Technology Partner Program ensures our joint customers receive a fully-integrated and supported solution."

"Privacy, residency, compliance, and security barriers are making it difficult for enterprises in healthcare and insurance to make the move to the cloud," said Leo Corcoran, CEO of ClaimVantage. "Being a part of the Connect Technology Partner Program is helping Claim Vantage close more business by providing a secure and integrated solution that is more appealing to the insurers."

"When it comes to security in the cloud, identity is the new perimeter," said Ping Identity CEO Andre Durand.  "Whether it's authentication, authorization, identity management, encryption or all of these capabilities, this partnership with CipherCloud helps security conscious businesses connect to the cloud."

"Connecting enterprise on-premise data with SaaS services requires complex cloud data combined with the strong cloud encryption to eliminate data privacy, residency, security, and concerns," said Rajeev Gupta, CEO of DBSync. "The CipherCloud Technology Partner Program provides our large enterprise customers the certified integration with CipherCloud our customers are demanding."

"CipherCloud's rapid growth and success in eliminating barriers to cloud adoption for the world's largest financial services, healthcare, and government organizations testifies to our strong partner relationships," said Dev Ghoshal, SVP Field Operations of CipherCloud. "The CipherCloud Technology Partner Program brings together the most trusted cloud solution providers to make adopting and maintaining the cloud a success for our joint customers."
