AFORE Unveils CypherX Advanced Cybersecurity Solution for Cloud-Hosted Apps and VDI
Ground-breaking CypherX solution offers full security compliance and
defense against APT, malware and insider attacks
OTTAWA, Aug. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – AFORE Solutions, Inc., a leading provider of cloud security and encryption management
solutions, today announced the CypherX cybersecurity solution for
virtual desktops (VDI) and cloud-hosted application platforms. CypherX
allows enterprise, healthcare and government organizations to meet
stringent regulatory and compliance requirements, and eliminate the
threat from a new breed of cyber attacks, while realizing the
significant economic benefits of cloud computing.
“Recent national security events, increased use of BYOD and compliance
concerns such as new HIPAA regulations, are combining to significantly
elevate the issues of cyber threats and data security,” said Jonathan
Reeves, AFORE’s Chairman and Chief Strategy Officer. “CypherX enables
organizations to leverage cloud platforms and hosted desktop
virtualization services with complete confidence that their data will
remain secure and inaccessible to unauthorized users, administrators
and insider end-users who often pose the greatest risk to security.”
CypherX is the first solution to seamlessly and efficiently secure each
individual application and its data, providing the highest levels of
granular and persistent data protection, regardless of where the data
resides or where it is sent. CypherX places applications in secure
virtual containers, encrypting all data and managing access with
granular trust policies; data can only be decrypted by authorized users
using certified applications on validated machines. CypherX renders
data useless for cyber attackers, malicious insiders or cloud
administrators, and protects sensitive data even when malware or
advanced persistent threats (APTs) penetrate existing security
“Current advanced threats are stealthy, persistent and data focused.
APTs tend to bypass defenses of current technologies and insiders -
employees, contractors and others with legitimate access to
information, go unwatched,” said Richard Stiennon, chief research
analyst at IT-Harvest. “With today’s mobile environments and
cloud-based applications, it is imperative that organizations recognize
application vulnerability and control who has access to data and how
that data is protected and shared, both at-rest and in-motion.”
Key features of CypherX include:
-- App Lockdown creates a secure virtual container for applications, protecting network, storage and inter-process communications with application-level granularity. -- CypherZonesextend data security between groups of protected applications, allowing a complete application stack or workgroup environment to be protected. -- APT Defenderensuresprotection of data from APTs using proactive data encryption. -- CypherX Managerprovides centralized control of security policy across many virtual machines, and integrates with Active Directory and RSA Data Protection Manager.
CypherX provides support for:
-- Multiple Hypervisors,including VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, Xen and KVM -- Multiple Desktop Virtualization Platforms, including VMware, Citrix and Microsoft -- Flexible Deployment models for private, public and hybrid Cloud with enterprise control of security
AFORE will demonstrate its patent pending CypherX solution at VMworld
2013, Booth 2146, August 25-28, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
