Cybersecurity rules spur encryption in the cloud

Cybersecurity rules spur encryption in the cloud

Enterprises are encrypting data before storing it in a cloud environment as a means to meet government rules, and at least one vendor is reaping rewards. CipherCloud chief Pravin Kothari said demand isn't coming just from the U.S. "We're seeing a lot of interest outside the United States," Kothari said. "They want the ability and, in some cases, need the ability to maintain a level of control, and encryption helps them do that."
