CipherCloud promoted to Dropbox Premier Partner as security services skyrocket

16 Jan 2017

Cloud security provider CipherCloud has been bumped up to Premier Partner status in the Dropbox Technology Partner Program, an initiative designed to facilitate collaboration and value for its partners and their customers.

CipherCloud uses Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) to ensure security and data privacy. The company says that as end users move toward cloud storage and collaboration platforms such as Dropbox, user authorisation and access is an important focus for the company.

"Dropbox is all about simplifying the way teams work together. By integrating with Dropbox, CipherCloud delivers visibility, security and compliance controls for data in the cloud,” says Billy Blau, Dropbox head of technology partnerships

The partnership also allows the two companies to work together to prevent information leaks, cloud data loss protection, cloud malware detection and comprehensive reporting.

“By joining the Dropbox Technology Partner Program, as a Premier Partner, CipherCloud is taking advantage of Dropbox's open API and developer support to offer compelling user value to its customers,” the company states.

"As enterprises increasingly move to the cloud and leverage Dropbox to simplify collaboration and communicate more efficiently, they face a new set of challenges related to data security, control and compliance," says Dev Ghoshal, senior vice president, Global Alliances for CipherCloud.

CipherCloud also operates its own partner programs for cloud providers, alliance partners and technology partners. The company’s ANZ headquarters are located in Sydney.
