PerspecSys, Cloud Access Security Brokers Take Prominent Role in San Francisco Security Week Events

PerspecSys Inc., the leader in cloud data protection solutions for the enterprise, will be one of a select group of companies participating in a Gartner-led panel session at the AGC InfoSec conference in San Francisco focused on a rapidly growing sector of cloud security companies referred to in Gartner research as Cloud Access Security Brokers. Immediately following the AGC conference is the computer industry’s annual marquee security show, the RSA Conference, where PerspecSys’ cloud data protection solutions will again be highlighted in the company’s exhibit booth #251 and in the exhibitions of their partners such as Voltage Securities and Ping Identity.

The AGC Conference asked PerspecSys to be a featured panelist in the conference session titled, “The Growing Importance of Cloud Access Security Brokers.” PerspecSys, which was highlighted in the 2012 Gartner report with the same name, is part of a fast-growing category of cloud security technologies that is forecasted to penetrate as much as 25 percent of enterprises by 2016. Ian Glazer, research vice president and agenda manager, identity and privacy at Gartner, will chair and moderate the panel discussion.

“Gartner was one of the first industry analyst organizations to identify this rapidly growing security space, which they coined Cloud Access Security Brokers,” said David Canellos, CEO of PerspecSys and panel participant. “We’re pleased to be identified as a leader in the Cloud Encryption Gateway category and are looking forward to sharing some real world use cases of the technology during the panel session. Through these examples, I am sure the audience will quickly understand the impact these technologies can have in overcoming the security inhibitors that have been slowing broad cloud enterprise cloud adoption.”

Following the AGC InfoSec conference, attendees of the week-long RSA conference will be able to visit PerspecSys in the main exhibit hall in booth #251 to see live demonstrations of the PerspecSys Cloud Data Protection Gateway. In addition to demonstrating the gateway solution’s capability to tokenize sensitive data before it goes to applications in the cloud, PerspecSys will demonstrate its recently announced joint-solution developed with Voltage Security, which embeds Voltage’s “Format Preserving Encryption” within the PerspecSys gateway software as an encryption technique. This breakthrough is a result of PerspecSys’ unique “pluggable encryption” architecture, which lets enterprises use modules from their existing, preferred encryption vendors as the obfuscation approach to secure sensitive cloud data. Conference attendees can see the combined PerspecSys-Voltage solution demonstrated at Voltage’s exhibition booth #2627.

PerspecSys’ cloud data protection solution will also be highlighted in Ping Identity’s RSA exhibition booth #2148 on Tuesday afternoon at 4:00 p.m. PT. PerspecSys is one of a small number of Ping Identity partners who have been asked to present their complementary solution to Ping Identity’s solution suite. As announced last week, PerspecSys and Ping Identity are partnering to deliver the benefits of “cloud control” – the ability to manage user access to cloud applications and corporate information, meeting increasingly complex 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 access and data control.

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 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.

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound e...
"MobiDev is a Ukraine-based software development company. We do mobile development, and we're specialists in that. But we do full stack software development for entrepreneurs, for emerging companies, and for enterprise ventures," explained Alan Winters, U.S. Head of Business Development at MobiDev, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
Business professionals no longer wonder if they'll migrate to the cloud; it's now a matter of when.
