Bangalore, November 26 2015: Canada-headquartered data security specialist WinMagic, has launched SecureDoc CloudSync, software that encrypts files at the endpoint, leaving full control with the enterprise through a single key, before entrusting them to cloud-based services.
The solution addresses the several risks that manifest if a user’s cloud service credentials are compromised and corporate data exposed. Also, the vulnerability of unencrypted files while in transport to and from the cloud creates a data leakage scenario.
SecureDoc CloudSync eliminates these risks by encrypting files at the endpoint before they are saved in the cloud. The company controls the encryption keys, which are assigned and revoked based on company controlled policy. If the cloud service is compromised, or if a given cloud instance is moved to a different geographic location, the files remain encrypted and can be accessed at any given point in time.

Speaking to IndiaTechOnline, WinMagic's Chief Operating Officer Mark Hickman, said "Globally, the trend that has evolved over the years has been of adoption of cloud solutions for most businesses.But this has had an element of risk. The sensible solution is for companies to encrypt files at their end point, so that the encryption stays with the file in the cloud. By managing the keys, the IT teams are the finally authority as to the security of their corporate data.”
In recent weeks, WinMagic has partnered with the Bangalore based distributor, Techbind to build up its partner ecosystem in India. India Country Manager Rahul Kumar said the company had opened a support facility in Jaipur to better serve its customers here.
At an IT security round table in Delhi in September, Mr Hickman said WinMagic was happy to partner with Government of India for their various programmes s including Digital India.
