Building on Cisco’s Security Everywhere strategy, designed to provide protection from the cloud to the network to the endpoint.
SAN JOSE, Calif. — On August 1, 2016, Cisco completed its acquisition of CloudLock, Inc., a privately-held cloud security company headquartered in Waltham, Massachusetts.
CloudLock specializes in cloud access security broker (CASB) technology. CASB technology understands and monitors user behavior and sensitive data in cloud applications. It helps secure cloud applications that customers buy — SaaS applications such as Google Drive, Salesforce, and Box — as well as the applications that they build like IaaS and PaaS platforms. With these capabilities added to the Cisco security portfolio, Cisco will be able to provide customers with greater visibility, compliance and threat protection regardless of whether the applications are fully sanctioned by IT or not.
