Inc., the leader in cloud data protection solutions for the
enterprise, today announced it has partnered with Ping
Identity, The Identity Security Company™, to make it easier and more
secure for enterprises to take advantage of the cloud.
PerspecSys and Ping Identity are working together to introduce new and
existing customers to the benefits of “Cloud Control” – the ability to
manage not only user access to cloud applications but also information
access in the face of increasing security risks, compliance and
regulatory demands. By combining Ping Identity’s single sign-on (SSO)
technology with PerspecSys’ cloud data protection platform, the
companies are delivering a “one-two punch” that creates tighter, more
reliable cloud security via control.
“One of the biggest barriers to enterprise cloud adoption is addressing
how to protect sensitive data as it is stored in the cloud,”
said Patrick Harding, CTO of Ping Identity. “Ping Identity and
PerspecSys are removing that obstacle by creating a more holistic
approach to cloud data security. Integrating our cloud identity and
access management solutions with PerspecSys’ data protection gateway
gives enterprise security teams the ability to deliver the cloud data
protection they need coupled with the end-user experience their
Ping Identity’s enterprise
identity security solutions span the cloud and the data center to
meet enterprise requirements for secure workforce and customer single
sign-on to cloud or internal applications, from any device. PerspecSys’ Cloud
Data Protection Gateway complements identity access security by
ensuring a corporation’s data remains on-site (within their firewall)
and under their full control by intercepting sensitive information and
replacing it with a random token or encrypted value before it leaves and
enters the cloud. The gateway renders the data meaningless outside the
corporation but allows full functionality of cloud applications to be
retained, helping ensure PerspecSys’ clients enjoy full use of the cloud
while staying secure and in compliance with data protection regulations
at all times. Together, these capabilities give organizations total
control over their data and are part of a fast-growing set of security
services that Gartner highlighted in a new category called Cloud
Access Security Brokers, and in which they cited interoperability
between technologies as essential to enterprise adoption.
“To fully address enterprise cloud security needs, PerspecSys recognized
long ago that an integrated, standards-based platform approach was
best,” said David Canellos, CEO of PerspecSys. “Organizations wrestling
with data protection don’t need or want the added complexity brought
about by trying to integrate multiple solutions with multiple
requirements. And our friends at Ping Identity agree. We made sure our
solutions worked seamlessly together so enterprise customers could have
a clear migration path from data access control to data management
control, and vice-versa. Unlike competitive offerings, our architecture
enables interoperability with the other core security layers that our
enterprise customers are demanding.”
PerspecSys and Ping Identity’s joint solution is currently available and
has been deployed in Fortune 500 companies – including some of the
world’s largest manufacturing and financial institutions. In addition to
supporting complementary security solutions such as Ping Identity’s, the
PerspecSys gateway enables organizations to deploy powerful encryption
modules from companies like Voltage Security and SafeNet via its unique
“pluggable” encryption architecture.
“Like Gartner, we believe interoperability is essential to developing a
scalable security ecosystem, which in turn is necessary for delivering
maximum value to enterprise customers looking to take advantage of
cutting-edge technology,” added Canellos. “Compatibility between
PerspecSys’ Gateway and Ping Identity’s single sign-on (SSO) solutions
is another step in meeting that need and achieving our goal of
eliminating the security, compliance and usability barriers that prevent
enterprises from moving to the cloud.”
About PerspecSys’ Cloud Data Protection Gateway
The PerspecSys solution gives organizations important data privacy,
residency and security capabilities when using cloud based applications.
Sensitive information is secured through the use of tokenization or
encryption, ensuring the data remains undecipherable when it is
processed or stored in the cloud. With PerspecSys, organizations can be
confident that their data is protected while their users enjoy the
functionality of their cloud applications. The PerspecSys solution is
designed to support many popular cloud applications at the same time,
such as Oracle CRM On Demand, Salesforce, Chatter and Force.com, via
“adapters” that enable interoperability between the application and the
PerspecSys solution. PerspecSys currently delivers these capabilities to
businesses in internationally regulated industries like financial
services, healthcare, manufacturing, life sciences, retail and the
PerspecSys Inc. is a provider of cloud data protection solutions that
enable mission-critical cloud applications to be adopted throughout the
enterprise. PerspecSys removes the technical, legal and financial risks
of placing sensitive company data in the cloud. The company accomplishes
this for many large, heavily regulated companies across the world by
never allowing sensitive data to leave a customer’s network, while
maintaining the functionality of cloud applications. Based in Toronto,
PerspecSys Inc. is a privately held company backed by leading investors
including Intel Capital and GrowthWorks. For more information on
