Datacastle announces support for Cloud Sync and Share services

SEATTLE, Oct. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Datacastle®, a market leader for protecting enterprises from endpoint data loss and data breaches, today announced that its flagship product, Datacastle RED™  now supports secure backup and restore of company data when using major cloud sync and share services such as DropBox, Microsoft SkyDrive, Box, Google Drive, and Amazon Cloud Drive. This new capability is added to Datacastle's recognized QuickCache™ and RoamSmart™ technologies that support intelligent backup and recovery roaming across hybrid cloud deployments with mobile broadband detection functionality.

"While many vendors in the enterprise IT sector are trying to provide companies with a "rip and replace" alternative to these wildly popular cloud sync and share services, we believe CIO's should have an "embrace and extend" option," says Datacastle CEO Ron Faith. "With our latest release of Datacastle RED, CIO's can augment their data governance and compliance when employees use these services."

In addition to enabling IT professionals to backup and restore company data stored in employee public sync and share accounts, Datacastle RED makes it possible to encrypt the sync and share data "at rest" on laptops, desktops, or high-end Windows tablets such as the Surface Pro. IT administrators can also remotely wipe the data at the endpoint by command or poison pill.

The most recent release also enhances Datacastle RED's enterprise capabilities concerning automated silent deployment, Active Directory/LDAP integration, single sign-on support via SAML v2, and centralized policy management.

Datacastle RED is available on Microsoft Windows Azure, IBM SmartCloud, and on-premise deployments.
