What does Cloud App Security provide?

Microsoft’s Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) at a glance

Discover SaaS apps and assess risk

Identify more than 15,000 apps and assess risk based on 60 different parameters, including regulatory compliance. Discovery tools collect information from firewalls and proxies to know which cloud apps are in use and assign each app a risk score, all without using agents.

Gain unified information protection

Set policies and enforce them right away on your cloud apps—whether from Microsoft or third parties, such as Box, Dropbox, and Salesforce. Provide customisable, granular control policies and powerful remediation actions, including quarantine and sharing restrictions. Scan and classify files in the cloud and apply Azure Information Protection labels.

Control and limit access in real time

Maintain monitoring and control over your cloud apps, even after you approve their use. Set granular access- and activity-level policies, such as allowing a user access from an unmanaged device while blocking the download of sensitive data.

Support your compliance journey with key regulations

Get help complying with Payment Card Industry (PCI), Health Insurance Accountability and Portability Act (HIPAA), Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and others. Discover and control data in the cloud with granular policies for multiple scenarios, from data sharing to data loss prevention (DLP).

Detect and mitigate ransomware attacks

Identify potential ransomware activity using a built-in template and apply file policies to search for unique file extensions. After detecting potential attacks, use the template to suspend suspect users and prevent further encryption of the user’s files.

Integrate with your existing SIEM and DLP solutions

Preserve your usual workflow and set a consistent policy across on-premises and cloud activities while automating security procedures to better protect your cloud applications through integration with your security information and event management (SIEM) and DLP solutions.
