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.

About PerspecSys

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
