CloudLock customers can now leverage one social networks while applying security and compliance policies to protect data

SAN FRANCISCO, CA - GOOGLE PARTNER SUMMIT 2014 - CloudLock, the cloud security pioneer and the world's leading cloud data security company is announcing the availability of CloudLock Compliance for Google+ at the Google Partner Summit 2014. The announcement represents the industry's first and only PCI/PII compliance solution for the business transforming social network.

CloudLock's Google+ auditing solution extends CloudLock's robust security suite by providing customers with the visibility, and control they need to implement their social network usage and compliance policies (such as PII, PCI, HIPAA, SOX, more) in place. CloudLock's compliance solution for Google Drive was an industry first, and more than two years and billions of object scans later, remains the only pure-cloud solution to enforcing complex compliance requirements on cloud data without disruption and at infinite scale. The combined CloudLock and Google offering is the most advanced feature rich and widely adopted enterprise social network, with a security and compliance solution that far surpass any competitive or existing offering.

"I couldn't think of a more fitting audience than our close friends and partners in the Google Apps ecosystem to be announcing CloudLock Compliance for Google+. We all share a tremendous passion for making customers successful by transforming the way technology enables their business," said Gil Zimmermann, CloudLock CEO and co-founder. "Working with the Google Enterprise team and the amazing resellers and systems integrators in this audience, has allowed CloudLock to transform the way security has traditionally been perceived and implemented in the past, with a cloud approach that turns security into an enabler of cloud adoption and business transformation. The attendees of the Google Partner Summit are trusted advisors who enable customers to rethink their transformation barriers, and empower their users and business to be more productive, collaborative, mobile, social, and more secure, than they've ever been before."

CloudLock's enterprise-class, content-aware, security and compliance solutions have already been adopted by hundreds of enterprises that have adopted Google Apps, covering millions of end-users in a manner that is not disruptive to their work. CloudLock is seeing accelerated cloud adoption as more and more enterprises seek to adopt cloud and SaaS offerings as a critical part of their businesses backbone, and require that their security and compliance policies extend to those components as well.

Leading industry Analysts such as Forrester Research are helping customers navigate their paths to the cloud and recently addressed the topic of utilizing cloud tools to maximize collaboration and productivity, while maintaining a secure environment. Forrester Research, Inc.'s January, 2014 report, Best Practices for Optimizing Your Migration to a Cloud Collaboration Solution, included the following statement: "...we see Google customers using emerging cloud services that integrate with Google Apps, such as CloudLock, to manage and secure their Google implementation."

"Being part of the Google Apps Enterprise Ecosystem, allows us to partner with the largest, best resellers and System Integrators in the world. Together, we've enabled hundreds of organizations, representing tens of millions of dollars in mutual subscription revenues, to accelerate their cloud adoption strategies while improving security controls and compliance adherence" said Andrew Davidson, director of channels. "The Google Enterprise Partner Summit brings together hundreds of resellers and ISVs from all over the world, and is a testimonial to how rapidly the global ecosystem is maturing."

Today's announcement, is fresh on the heels of several recent CloudLock announcements, including last weeks introduction of the industry's first pure-cloud CloudLock Selective Encryption&trade solution, last month's announcement of CloudLock's closing of a $16.5M C round led by leading VC Bessemer Venture Partners to meet accelerated growth demands, and last Novembers announcement of CloudLock for Salesforce.
