Industry Innovation
In August 2015, the company launched the industry’s first Cybersecurity-as-a-Service offering for any cloud environment, including off-the-shelf SaaS, IaaS (e.g. Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, IBM Softlayer), PaaS (e.g., IDaaS (e.g. Okta, OneLogin, Centrify), as well as custom and homegrown cloud apps. Recognizing that most cloud interactions circumvent traditional networks and happen cloud-to-cloud and machine-to-cloud, CloudLock’s cloud-native solution delivers cloud cybersecurity in a completely new way — as a service.

CloudLock pioneered the API-first approach in the Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) market and its unified Cloud Security Fabric connects and secures any app natively from the cloud in the cloud through a series of CloudLock Cybersecurity APIs, including independent software vendors (ISVs).
