Highly regulated businesses that aren’t complying with IT security requirements are taking on unnecessary risks. Breaches, leaks, and fines seem to be growing bigger every day. Consider the case where an IT consultant stored healthcare data on an unencrypted laptop, a small medical practice faced a $100,000 HIPAA fine. Unfortunately, this wasn’t the exception to the rule.
Some of the more common cloud business applications, such as Google G Suite and Office 365, have matured enough to provide risk management tools for users in highly regulated industries, so they can maintain compliance. But the reality is, most businesses leverage hundreds of cloud applications, and nothing is in place to monitor all of the cloud activity. Cloud Access Monitor scrutinizes unsanctioned Shadow IT applications and identifies risks created by unsafe cloud storage practices. Cloud Access Monitor is the only Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) that can be deployed in 30 minutes or less, with no special training, and with no impact on users or networks.
