Cyber-Ark Software have recently launched their new product, an Inter-business Vault (IBV) as a cloud service which enables cloud users to secure their sensitive and confidential files during transfer.

Cyber-Ark uses an approach like that of a physical vault at a bank.  An electronic vault is made available on the network, regardless of other security measures available, Cyber-Ark adds in its unique patented multiple security layers to protect this virtual vault.  Some of which include the traditional: VPN, file access-control & Geo-Security measures.  The layers are tightly integrated, this makes the Cyber-Ark vault easily accessible, which means enjoying high-usability while having good-quality security configuration.

Once the files are securely stored in the IBV, users can then use another solution, Governed File Transfer (GVT) to secure & exchange sensitive data over the internet.  This enables organizations to exchange sensitive information with partners, customers and suppliers in a secure and efficient way without having to involve IT services. Logging and other compliance requirements are also available in this service.  When IBV & GVT are used as the file-transfer standard in an organization, there is less risk that users will make use of other file transfer methods such as third-party online file-transfer services, email, FTP servers, etc.

A demo is available on the Cyber-Ark info-page.
