Forcepoint CASB provides visibility and control over sanctioned and unsanctioned cloud apps
Cloud App Security
Most of your employees today have adopted the Cloud. And while your BYOD policy has increased productivity and lowered operating costs, cloud-based apps like Office 365, Dropbox and Salesforce need protection to prevent account-centric threats, meet compliance requirements and protect critical data.
Forcepoint CASB provides visibility and control over sanctioned and unsanctioned cloud apps to enable their safe and productive use.
Gain Visibility Through Cloud App Discovery
Cloud apps unknown to IT result in uncontrolled information assets that are outside an organization’s governance, risk and compliance processes. Organizations need visibility into cloud app account usage, including understanding who is using which cloud apps, as well as their departments, locations and devices used.
Forcepoint CASB uncovers cloud apps – sanctioned and unsanctioned – by inspecting data in user access logs across the enterprise, and provides a searchable Cloud App Directory where customers can view details, including customized risk factors, for each cloud app discovered.
Identify Compliance Gaps
Cloud services cannot guarantee a secure environment, meaning each organization is ultimately responsible for the security of data entered into the Cloud. IT must have visibility into cloud app usage, identify high-risk activities and enforce policy and controls for cloud apps to meet compliance requirements, whether internal or government-mandated (e.g., HIPAA, PCI DSS, ISO, GDPR, CSA).
Forcepoint CASB compares cloud application security settings against a set of industry best practices or compliance standards and highlights deficiencies that require immediate attention.
Employ Threat Detection
Organizations need a comprehensive view of normal usage patterns in order to protect enterprise data from theft and loss due to compromised, malicious and careless users. Former employees and third-party contractors also pose a significant security risk if they retain access to cloud apps after being disabled from the organizational directory.
Forcepoint CASB strengthens cloud security by detecting access anomalies and issues that may indicate an external or insider threat targeting your data.
Protect Critical Data
Unmanaged endpoints are vulnerable to breaches and other exploits that can steal legitimate credentials. Attackers with access to employees credentials can obtain – and export – clear text data, depending on the user privilege level.
Forcepoint CASB inspects files and cloud content in real-time to prevent the malicious or unintentional leakage of confidential information.
Control BYOD Access
While Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies provide tangible benefits to organizations by reducing capital expenditures, unmanaged or untrusted devices can dramatically increase the risk of data proliferation. Since cloud app adoption goes hand in hand with BYOD and the anywhere access to cloud apps, organizations must have the visibility and control to manage risks related to cloud app credentials.
Forcepoint CASB distinguishes between managed and unmanaged devices so you can create granular device-based access rules to stop data proliferation.
