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.
