Before we jump into the cloud app security implementation or the management processes, let’s talk about the cloud app security what it is and why would do we need cloud app security. It’s a Microsoft cloud-based solution that gives you insights into your suspicious user activities.
Our certified engineers will analyze how well you’re leveraging existing and optional security controls and setting of your Office 365 environment and develop a prioritized plan according to Microsoft best-practices to increase security and reduce risks.
With these capabilities, users can easily apply sensitivity labels to documents and emails – based on the labels defined by your organization. The experience is built directly into Office apps, with no need for any special plugins or add-ons. It looks and feels like the familiar Office experience, which makes it easy for workers to use.
Perimeter-based networks protected by a firewall are familiar to anyone because they were so common. But the key word is “were”, because they are outdated now. They function assuming that machines and users within a perimeter are reliable – but it actually never was the case and least of all it applies to modern reality when Bring your own device (BOYD) and Bring your own cloud (BYOC) trends are in place, and cybercriminals are getting more sophisticated than ever before. The previous generation of networks cannot accommodate modern workstyles and cannot perform their main role of protecting data, as when the cyber-criminals compromise even one end-point within a perimeter, they can laterally move there to extract sensitive business data.
The key to success for the business is working smarter instead of working harder. The idea of cloud technologies which can make your work a lot easier is very tempting. That sounds great to the business folks until the IT guys come along and say there’s a whole bunch of work should be done to get there. Moreover, the cost of transition to the cloud is not limited by the licenses you buy but comprise multiple expenses that arise along the way. At this point, it suddenly seems that it is better to keep to traditional on-premises servers, install them yourself and manage them yourself. But it is a misconception as investing into aging infrastructure can actually do more harm in the long run. To break this vicious circle and reduce the cost of cloud transition FastTrack came to life.
A couple of years ago companies were really thinking about the cloud in a very simplistic sense as moving their VMs (Virtual machines) from their on-premises data centers into the cloud. Now we’re seeing an explosion of services and capabilities in the cloud that companies can take advantage of. It enables all sorts of new capabilities and functionalities in cloud apps, allowing businesses to reach new customers, predict the future with machine learning and advanced analytics, name but a few. But some businesses are still hesitant about moving to the cloud, in the light of the existing myths around migration to Office 365 which are in fact different from real state of affairs like chalk from cheese. Let’s debunk them!
Recently, Avanan (cloud security provider) have been seeing a number of phishing attacks using a simple strategy to get their blatant email spoofs past Microsoft’s phishing scans. The tactic, which they are calling ZeroFont, involves inserting hidden words with a font size of zero that are invisible to the recipient.
