CipherCloud is a cloud security company. The Company enables cloud services adoption while ensuring security, compliance and control. CipherCloud's platform serves as a gateway that encrypts data in real-time before sending the data into a cloud environment via Searchable Strong Encryption (SSE), using standard cryptographic modules validated by FIPS 140-2. The data is only decrypted when an authorized user retrieves data from the cloud and the data is returned. Encryption keys are stored locally, never leave the user’s site and are not shared with the cloud provider. The platform is also capable of using tokenization, which is the process of substituting a sensitive data element with a non-sensitive equivalent. It also offers data loss and malware detection and monitoring for cloud environments.
