CloudLock Granted Patent for its Cloud-Native Cybersecurity Platform
Patent 9,141,628 B1 Covers API-Centric Entity Correlation and Relationship Modeling, Resulting in Smarter Cyber Intelligence
WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwired - Nov 10, 2015) - CloudLock, the leading provider of CASB and Cybersecurity-as-a-Service solutions, today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued US Patent 9,141,628 B1 to the company for its cloud-native cybersecurity platform. The patent relates to APIs that provide access to cloud-native entity relationship modeling for behavior, context and content entities, in connection with cloud applications, Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) solutions and devices.
Using an API-first approach, the CloudLock® Smart Security Modeler™ correlates various risk factors from numerous applications and devices into a unified behavioral and contextual model. This helps organizations gain a clear understanding of the risk associated with cloud usage across users, data and applications.
The CloudLock Smart Security Modeler is a key component of the CloudLock® Security Fabric™, the industry's first Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) and Cybersecurity-as-a-Service offering for any cloud environment, including off-the-shelf SaaS, IaaS, PaaS, IDaaS, as well as custom and homegrown cloud applications.
Traditional network-based, on-premises security solutions such as gateways or proxies limit cloud risk visibility for security teams, as those solutions cannot capture, monitor and control off-network traffic, such as cloud-to-cloud traffic. Through its innovative cloud-native, API-first approach to security, CloudLock helps organizations leverage the greatest strengths of cloud - scale, ubiquitous connectivity, and the accessibility of near-infinite computing power, both on and off network, in real-time and retroactively, while addressing one of the biggest obstacles to cloud adoption: security.
"As the pioneer for the cloud-native approach to CASB and Cybersecurity-as-a-Service, CloudLock is changing the way organizations are leveraging APIs to achieve centralized visibility and remediation across their entire multi-cloud environments," said Ron Zalkind, co-founder and CTO at CloudLock. "This patent is further validation for how unique our approach is as we continue the march toward improved modelling and smarter cyber intelligence."
CloudLock, the leading CASB and Cybersecurity-as-a-Service providers, offers the cloud security fabric enabling enterprises to protect their data in the cloud, reduce risk, achieve compliance, manage threats and increase productivity by continuously monitoring and protecting more than one billion files for more than 10 million end users daily. CloudLock delivers the only complete, risk-appropriate and people-centric approach to cloud cybersecurity. Learn more at cloudlock.com.
