CipherCloud and Cloud Security Alliance Forge Cloud Security Working Group
SAN JOSE, California, USA, June 29, 2015 — Recognized as the fastest-growing segment of cloud security, the Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) space is still an emerging one where standards have yet to coalesce. To fill this gap, CipherCloud, the leader in cloud visibility and data protection, and the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) are forming a Cloud Security Open API Working Group to jointly define protocols and best practices for implementing cloud data security as a part of the CASB framework. Deloitte, InfoSys, Intel Security, SAP, and other technology leaders will also contribute.
The Cloud Security Open API Working Group will provide guidance on vendor-neutral data-security implementation to help accelerate cloud services adoption. The working group plans to produce API specifications and a reference architecture to guide cloud data protection.
