Cisco Cloudlock Now Available through Internet2 NET+ Program

We couldn’t be more excited to share that Cisco Cloudlock is now available through the Internet2 NET+ program. We have strong interest from campuses and expect to have our first campus signed up before the 2017 Global Summit. We have plans to add additional Cisco cloud services to the NET+ portfolio and align with Cisco’s overall market engagement strategy.

Internet2 and Cloudlock started working in 2015 on a NET+ quick start business agreement with the community. We worked with three campuses on the legal aspects of the agreement. During this time, Cisco acquired Cloudlock, complicating the agreement. Finally, in December 2016, we completed the Cloudlock business agreement.

We plan to engage with the broader community at the 2017 Internet2 Global Summit at a Cisco Cloudlock Special Interest Group session on Tuesday, April 25, 6:00–7:00pm. Please come meet with Cisco Cloudlock—and campus representatives who are using Cloudlock—to talk about shared use cases, the new NET+ Cisco Cloudlock program, and contribute your input on the NET+ Cisco Cloudlock program.

The Power of Collaboration

The ability to tap into the power of this community and drive meaningful collaboration represents the true value of this endeavor. This is clearly demonstrated not only in the exchange of ideas and best practices, but also in the development of new product functionality, with security professionals acting as full design partners. For instance, Cloudlock’s Exact Data Matching capabilities evolved through collaboration with one of the campus partners. Now, many other educational institutions can benefit from the community’s input. As we develop the NET+ Cisco Cloudlock program, we will be starting an advisory board to further facilitate engagement at the campus level.

About Cisco Cloudlock

As a Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Cisco Cloudlock focuses on protecting users, data, and applications in cloud environments. More specifically, Cisco Cloudlock alerts on and remediates anomalous user activity indicative of account compromise, the excessive exposure of sensitive information within cloud applications, and risky third-party applications.

Cisco Cloudlock has continuously demonstrated value for educational institutions through education-specific product developments, including out-of-the-box capabilities to hunt for and secure overly-exposed FERPA and HIPAA information, and is currently deployed at a large number of universities.
