iboss Cloud Expands its Cloud App Security and Visibility through Microsoft Cloud App Security (CAS) Partnership
BOSTON, Mass., April 9, 2019 iboss today announced native integration of iboss cloud with Microsoft Cloud App Security to deliver expanded control and visibility for cloud applications approved by the organization as well as restrict access to unsanctioned applications such as a personal Dropbox account. In addition, advanced controls extend protection for data residing within Microsoft Office 365 and Azure to protect corporate data as well as to meet regulatory compliances. The integration allows all Microsoft CAS capabilities to be leveraged in seconds eliminating the need to deploy log collectors, streamlining the deployment and reducing overhead cost. The iboss cloud includes comprehensive cloud application security controls for data as it moves between users and the cloud. Complimenting this security with Microsoft CAS allows organizations to easily protect data as it rests within Microsoft and other popular cloud applications. As the capabilities are delivered in the cloud, this allows organizations to protect users regardless of device or location ensuring protection is in place at all times.
According to IDC, almost half of IT spending will be cloud-based in 2018, “reaching 60% of all IT infrastructure and 60-70% of all software, services and technology spending by 2020.” Securing access to cloud applications is one of the top concerns of IT professionals.
Traditional cloud application security solutions offer a ‘watch and alert’ but do not prevent users from accessing unauthorized cloud applications. Through the partnership, iboss cloud and Microsoft Cloud App Security allow organizations to proactively identify, control and prevent users from accessing unapproved applications on or off the network in real time.
“The combination of iboss cloud application security and Microsoft CAS provide the necessary security and visibility organization’s need to operate in a cloud-first world,” said Paul Martini, CEO and co-founder of iboss. “At iboss, we are focused on ensuring organizations can secure Internet access for users, regardless of location which is required in a world where perimeters no longer exist.”
iboss is a cloud security company that provides organizations and their employees secure access to the Internet on any device, from any location, in the cloud. This eliminates the need for traditional security appliances, which are ineffective at protecting a cloud-first and mobile world. Leveraging a purpose-built cloud architecture backed by over 100 patents and over 100 points of presence globally, iboss protects more than 4,000 organizations worldwide.
