PerspecSys and Ping Identity to Deliver Best-in-class Cloud Data Security & Control

PerspecSys 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 stakeholders demand.”

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 public sector.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs.

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
