Deutsche Telekom works with CipherCloud to protect hosted apps

CipherCloud has customized protection for Salesforce.com, Office 365 and Gmail

Deutsche Telekom has joined forces with CipherCloud to help enterprises protect hosted applications using encryption and other technologies such as data loss prevention.

Deutsche Telekom's T-Systems will soon be able to configure and run CipherCloud servers on behalf of corporate customers, on-premises or in a hosted environment. Enterprises that have avoided cloud computing due to concerns about data security can now make the move with less worry, according to the operator. In Europe, cloud security has become a hot topic thanks to the continued disclosures made by U.S. National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden.

CipherCloud's encryption process is automatic and takes place in real time, before the data reaches the cloud. Decryption is performed only when an authorized employee retrieves the data from the cloud and the data has been returned, according to Deutsche Telekom. Sensitive information isn't available to cloud providers, even if they don't adhere to stringent German data protection regulations, it said.

The operator will demonstrate how CipherCloud can be used to protect Salesforce.com services during next week's CeBIT IT conference.

CipherCloud can protect Salesforce.com's Sales, Service and Marketing Cloud offerings. The company's platform can also be used to secure Salesforce.com's enterprise social network Chatter. CipherCloud lets Salesforce.com users improve security with encryption, data loss prevention, malware detection and activity monitoring for any kind of information.

In addition, CipherCloud has customized products for protecting hosted storage service Box, Microsoft's Office 365, Google's Gmail and Amazon Web Services. For example, CipherCloud provides AES-256 encryption for email, calendar, contacts and attachments on Gmail and Office 365.

The company also offers generalized versions of its software for other applications and databases.

Deutsche Telekom has also helped finance CipherCloud via its T-Venture fund, it said.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
