SUNNYVALE, Calif., MARCH 10, 2016 – Blue Coat Systems, Inc., a market leader in enterprise security, today announced it is extending the capabilities of Salesforce Financial Services Cloud with Blue Coat Cloud Data Protection, giving financial services companies control of their regulated and sensitive data in the cloud, thereby addressing pressing data compliance challenges and reducing risk.

Blue Coat Data Protection Key Features
Blue Coat Cloud Data Protection is a key part of Blue Coat’s CASB (Cloud Access Security Broker) solution, giving financial services and other types of companies complete control of their regulated and sensitive data in order to address data compliance challenges. Blue Coat provides both encryption and tokenization of sensitive data before it leaves an enterprise’s environment and heads to the cloud for processing and storage, ensuring only authorized individuals can see it in the clear. It does this while ensuring that Salesforce cloud end-users maintain critical application functionality, including the ability to search and sort data, send emails, and generate reports using data that has been encrypted or tokenized.
“Security, compliance and governance are key factors in the Financial Services market. Working with Salesforce, we’re able to provide financial services customers with a comprehensive solution that protects sensitive data as part of their efforts to meet their unique compliance and governance regulations,” said David Canellos, senior vice president advanced technology group, Blue Coat Systems. “Blue Coat solutions are used in 13 of the world’s largest banks and we have a long history of partnering with Salesforce over the past seven years. We are proud to partner with Salesforce to support their cloud solutions, including their new Wave Analytics Cloud and the Financial Services Cloud.”
