ManagedMethods Delivers Visibility and Control of Popular Cloud-Based Productivity Suite
(Boulder, Colorado, March 30, 2016) ManagedMethods, a leading provider in the cloud access security broker space, today announced that its Cloud Access Monitor solution now integrates with Microsoft Office 365, providing audit and policy enforcement for the cloud-based suite of productivity applications. Cloud Access Monitor gives companies visibility into the usage and potential risk associated with using both sanctioned and unsanctioned cloud applications. Office 365 joins Cloud Access Monitor’s existing API integrations with Box, Dropbox and Google Apps, allowing the solution to easily plug into a company’s accounts, giving IT Security teams the visibility they need to monitor and control Shadow IT.
With the adoption of Office 365 by companies of all sizes growing exponentially, the new integration from ManagedMethods delivers much-needed visibility and control into the applications and files users are accessing and sharing in the cloud
“As more organizations adopt these types of cloud-based work tools, IT Security is left with a risky blindside,” said ManagedMethods Chairman and CEO Charlie Sander. “We’re pleased to be able to provide a complementary solution that allows companies to improve collaboration and work efficiency without taking on unnecessary security risk.”
Cloud Access Monitor’s passive listening of network traffic gives IT a non-intrusive way to see:
- Which cloud applications are in use
- Who is using them
- How often they are used
- What data is being exchanged with the Cloud
- Potential risk associated with the use of those cloud apps
Deep packet capture is a key component of Cloud Access Monitor that goes beyond log entries to allow granular analysis at a deeper level than logs can. Cloud Access Monitor’s 24/7 monitoring can also watch for the movement of secure information such as Social Security numbers, credit card numbers or other personally identifiable information (PII and PCI), helping companies meet compliance regulations.
Cloud Access Monitor is generally available from ManagedMethods and a network of value-added solutions providers. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
