WALTHAM, MA – August 14, 2013 – CloudLock, a leading cloud information security provider for enterprises using cloud platforms, has announced support for Google+ in the CloudLock Security Suite that will be publicly available this quarter. CloudLock's support for Google+ will help CIOs implement Google+ for their domain while applying additional security and audit controls.
This new CloudLock offering provides IT with capabilities such as:
Identifying and auditing domain-owned Google+ streams
Classification and action on sensitive data that is being shared inside and outside the domain
Implementing organizational and regulatory compliance policies
"We are very excited to have CloudLock supporting Google+," said Joël Kalmanowicz, product manager, Google Apps Team. "The Google+ Domains API lets Google Apps customers and partners build tools to streamline and automate actions in Google+ such as posting, commenting and creating circles. By using this API, CloudLock is able to offer customers additional security and audit controls for Google+."
Hundreds of enterprises, and the millions of end-users in their domains, who are already leveraging CloudLock today will have the ability to extend their security policies and practices to Google+. CloudLock customer Gareth Wright of News International is one such example. "We have been using Google Apps to improve availability, deliver increased functionality and to foster collaboration between our colleagues and partners," said Gareth Wright, head of infrastructure & enterprise operations, News International. "CloudLock offers enterprise compliance and governance controls over our Google Apps data at a fraction of the cost of legacy on-premise DLP systems."
"CloudLock's vision is to enable enterprises to have better data security in the cloud than they ever had on-premise", said Gil Zimmermann, CloudLock co-founder and chief executive officer. "We're excited to work closely with Google to help our mutual customers continue to transform their businesses. CloudLock for Google+ takes advantage of newly released Google+ Domain API and helps customers benefit from Google's latest technology."
"Our organization has been using Google Apps to allow our business to move faster and to better serve our customers. In addition, it allowed us to reduce the cost of IT, plus, our users love it," said Nathan McBride, vice president of IT, AMAG Pharmaceuticals.
