Security Watch: Blue Coat expands cloud cred with Perspecsys buy out

Blue Coat Systems has acquired Perspecsys, Inc. Blue Coat says this expands its cloud security offerings in the Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) segment.

Blue Coat will offer CASB capabilities within its Secure Web Gateway portfolio. As dependency on cloud applications grows, enterprises are faced with a number of issues regarding data privacy, compliance and security. These include compliance requirements for Personally-Identifiable-Information (PII), as well as payment (PCI) and protected health information (HIPAA); strict data governance and regional residency rules for multinational companies; and most prominently, the continuous global news of data breaches.

Perspecsys’ Cloud Data Protection platform focusses on business risks associated with data compliance, privacy and security for enterprises as companies move to cloud-based applications. Through the use of its patented cloud data tokenization and encryption capabilities, Perspecsys puts enterprises in complete control of their data at all times, regardless of where the data resides, both while in use and at rest in the cloud. By removing the risks associated with placing sensitive data in the cloud with applications such as salesforce.com, ServiceNow and Oracle, Perspecsys effectively makes the public cloud private.
