Bitglass, the Total Data Protection company, announced today that it has joined the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), a not-for-profit organization with a mission to promote the use of best practices for providing security assurance within cloud computing. Bitglass is a Cloud Access Security Broker that delivers total data protection as enterprise data moves beyond the firewall - in the cloud, on mobile devices and anywhere on the Internet. The service enables some of the world’s most security-conscious and regulated organizations to adopt public cloud apps by closing security and compliance gaps. The SaaS-based solution deploys in minutes and works without installing software agents on employee devices and without changing the user experience.
“Security remains the biggest inhibitor to cloud adoption. Bitglass is delighted to work with the Cloud Security Alliance in promoting best practices to enhance employee mobility and productivity, while securing sensitive corporate data,” said Nat Kausik, CEO of Bitglass
"As the adoption of cloud applications and BYOD continues, companies must be able to protect data that is now traveling outside of their corporate firewall. Protecting the data itself, not the device is now of paramount importance. We are proud to welcome Bitglass to the CSA family, as they are the leader in total data protection outside of the firewall and look forward to working closely with them." - Jim Reavis, CEO, Cloud Security Alliance
Bitglass is sponsoring the CSA Summit 2015: Enterprise Cloud Adoption and Security Lessons Learned, which is being held on Monday, April 20, 2015, at 9:00 a.m. PST in Moscone Center West, San Francisco. For more information, please visit: https://cloudsecurityalliance.org/events/.
"Information is the lynchpin of today's enterprise, and the explosion of mobile devices and cloud apps has greatly enhanced the workforce's ability to access the information that is so critical to their success. BYOD has improved employee productivity, but it also exponentially increases the risk that sensitive corporate data is leaked due to lost or stolen devices, hacking or even unintentional missteps such as inadvertently leaking sensitive information via email. Bitglass Mobile Edition provides IT departments a data protection solution for BYOD that spans both internal and cloud applications, and deploys without agents or software, eliminating the drawbacks of mobile device management (MDM) solutions. At the same time, Bitglass ensures that the personal privacy of employees is respected while they are using their personal devices for work."
Bitglass (bitglass.com) delivers innovative technologies that transcend the network perimeter to deliver total data protection for the enterprise -- in the cloud, on mobile devices, on the network and anywhere on the Internet. Bitglass was founded in 2013 by a team of industry veterans with a proven track record of innovation and execution. Bitglass is based in Silicon Valley.
