CipherCloud's industry-leading Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) will provide security and privacy for critical enterprise data that is shared and stored in Dropbox.
As enterprises continue to adopt a wide range of cloud storage and collaboration applications such as Dropbox, they face a new set of challenges meeting compliance, data privacy and data residency requirements. CipherCloud supports the collaboration and communication benefits of Dropbox by ensuring that only authorized users can access sensitive and regulated data such as credit card numbers, healthcare information, or intellectual property. In addition, CipherCloud seamlessly integrates with Dropbox to prevent leaks of sensitive information with cloud data loss prevention (DLP), cloud malware detection, and comprehensive reporting.
