Bitglass boosts security for data in public-cloud apps

    Bitglass has boosted the protection it offers cloud-based applications, now supporting fully searchable AES 256 encryption without degrading the speed of searches.

    The company has received a U.S. patent on the technology it is using to deliver the searchable encryption and that is now available through its security-brokering service.

    The service is designed for corporate customers who want to use cloud software as a service (SaaS) but who don’t want their data stored unsecured in the cloud.

    A gateway on customers’ sites encrypts data that is headed to the cloud, then uploads only an encryption prefix or handle to the cloud itself. When an authorized person wants to use the cloud app, the app sends down the handle to the gateway. The gateway uses the handle as an index to find the full version of the encrypted data and decrypts it.
