Microsoft Acquired Secure Islands

By November 16, 2015Article

PCMAN – One of Microsoft’s plans to increase its security performance is by acquiring Secure Islands Technologies Ltd., an Israeli company known for incorporating intelligent data-centric security technology to its services. Microsoft is planning to adjust Secure Islands’ technology into its Azure Rights Management Service.

Secure Islands was co-founded in 2006 by two brothers, Aki and Yuval Eldar, in Beit Dagan, Israel. The company creates systems that help control access to corporate data and files with its software product, IQProtector.

The benefit from the merger is for the end-users to be able to store corporate data anywhere, including on-premises systems, third-party cloud services, Microsoft Azure, Office 365, Windows, iOS and Android devices, without bargaining security.

The system is designed with mobile data protection to prevent data loss, and it also tracks information everywhere it goes. Secure Island provides data classification, protection and loss prevention technologies for most files and unstructured data. Microsoft Office documents, emails, and photos are some of the documents that can be protected by the system. On top of that, the system also allows the end-users to apply data protection to more applications.

Often, companies have no information whether or not their business partner has a data protection infrastructure that meets their standard. IT departments don’t have control or visibility into other corporations, even when they share confidential data with companies they partner with. Douglas Grosfield, the president and CEO of Xylotek Solutions—one of Microsoft’s partners—stated that enterprise-level file-sharing between organizations has always been a gap. The risk is big and they couldn’t just go with any services which credibility is unknown.

Moreover, users have raised concerns regarding cloud security as cloud storage and services continue to grow. File security has become an important part of a service, where authentication and visibility becomes more apparent.

As data gets pushed into the cloud, it raises questions regarding its security. Many users still haven’t realized that high security is a need. Incorporating a data protection will help ease minds of those who already realized its importance. Secure Islands’ deal with Microsoft acts as a threat to cloud access security brokers, which regulate how employees connect to cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications.

With these growing demands and concerns, Microsoft’s move to acquire a company that specializes in mobile data protection is the fastest method to add security features to its portfolio.
