Diebold Selects Skyhigh Networks to Accelerate Secure and Cost-Efficient Adoption of Cloud Services

CUPERTINO, Calif. — November 12, 2013 — Diebold, Incorporated (NYSE:DBD), a global leader in providing innovative self-service technology, security systems and related services, selected Skyhigh Networks to accelerate the adoption of cloud services while ensuring the appropriate levels of security, compliance, and governance. Diebold chose Skyhigh because it was the only solution that demonstrated value within hours and addressed the entire cloud adoption lifecycle from discovery of all cloud services to analysis of use of cloud services to protection of corporation data in the cloud.

“We selected Skyhigh Networks so that we could arm our employees with the best possible cloud services to get their job done efficiently and without interruption,” said Adam Williams, Chief Security Officer of Diebold, Incorporated.

Skyhigh allows us to accelerate cloud adoption in a manageable way while meeting our security, compliance, and governance standards.

Skyhigh shines a light on Shadow IT by giving the organization a comprehensive view into its use of all cloud services (in general eight to ten times more cloud services are used than approved or anticipated by IT). For each cloud service in use, Skyhigh delivers an objective risk assessment (derived from over 35+ attributes for each service) to quickly identify data, business, and legal risks of these services.

Skyhigh analyzes the use of all cloud services to identify opportunities for IT to enable employees by subscribing to specific services, to reduce risk and costs by consolidating and better managing subscriptions, and to highlight anomalous behavior that may indicate a security breach, data leak, or compliance violation.

Skyhigh enforces the organization’s policies on the use of specific cloud services by controlling access, encrypting data with customer managed keys, preventing sensitive data from being disclosed (e.g., PII, PHI), and providing a live log of all accesses to specific cloud services. Finally, Skyhigh enables secure mobile access to approved cloud services without requiring any agent, footprint, or other friction to the end user.

“Leading organizations like Diebold are embracing the cloud revolution head-on and this proactive approach allows IT departments to partner with lines of business and create a secure environment for the productive use of cloud services,” said Rajiv Gupta, founder and CEO of Skyhigh Networks. “Our customers safely unlock massive cloud returns by finding and eliminating risk while preserving the native user experience that employees prefer.”
