OTTAWA, June 3, 2014 /CNW/ - CloudMask today announced a specialized version of its awarded innovative data
masking technology focusing on the Governments' requirements. The new
offering brings security, performance and scalability of the
enterprise-class, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) CloudMask solution to
fulfill the requirements of Governments. CloudMask understands that
Governments have special needs and that any loss of confidentiality in Government affairs can have far reaching
CloudMask solution, the winner of the Canadian Innovation
Commercialization Program (CICP),has been evaluated by the Canadian Federal Government for integration with their
security infrastructure. CloudMask is currently going through Common Criteria Certification to
meet the security certification required to operate with Governments in 26 Countries.
CloudMask advanced masking technology neutralizes the risks of data breaches by
enabling users to apply end-to-end (E2E) encryption and tokenization to
their data. This occurs at the moment of creation and data remains protected throughout its lifecycle. This is a very
different approach from existing solutions that encrypt data while it
is in transit and/or at-storage, while leaving it exposed during server
CloudMask does not require VPN, encryption gateway, nor any other
hardware encryption devices. Instead, data protection starts at the users' desktops or at any other
devices they happen to use. Accordingly, the not only does CloudMask
protect sensitive data in the public cloud, it also elevates the security of data inside the private network to mitigate insider threats and unauthorized access
since only authorized users can see data. CloudMask deployment relies on user digital certificates to apply
FIPS-140 military grade encryption algorithms thereby providing strong,
credible and proven security.
CloudMask for Government supports myKey - Entrust based Canadian Federal
Government PKI - to enable secure multi-jurisdiction collaboration. The Canadian Government can continue to use its own preferred public key
infrastructure (PKI) and CloudMask will use the Government's PKI to
implement CloudMask security.
"We are delighted to unveil CloudMask for Government, and we are excited that all levels of Government will now have enhanced
data protection that fulfills their unique needs." said Wael Aggan,
CEO, CloudMask Corp. "Government works in hybrid-cloud environment with complex needs that, in many cases, are specific to them. CloudMask delivers solutions
that meet stringent Government regulations and maintain data
sovereignty irrespective of where it resides. By relying on user-based certificates, Governments can ensure a higher
degree of authentication and confidentiality, and finer need-to-know
CloudMask ensures the privacy of user data by applying encryption
methods at the end-user device without requiring any changes to the
application (e.g. SalesForce, MS Office 365, Google Drive etc.).
Elimination of any need for special Gateways or VPN simplifies the
deployment process since absolutely no changes are required to the
users' network or to applications being protected.
CloudMask employs a "Zero Trust" model. Data confidentiality is ensured
against malicious insiders and perimeter breaches, both on-premise and
on the cloud. As a result, customers can meet data sovereignty
requirements, ensure data privacy, and mitigate insider threats while
ensuring full functionality of their applications.
