As businesses migrate to the cloud, they’re increasingly turning to Office 365, and our solution gives them confidence that they’re getting the security they need while enabling employee productivity.
San Mateo, Calif. (PRWEB) February 22, 2016
Cloud security company Sookasa today announced a new partnership with Microsoft Office 365 to enable enterprises to detect potential breach risks and enforce data loss prevention policies across the Office 365 platform, including Microsoft’s OneDrive and Outlook products.
“We’re delighted to debut our integration with Office 365,” said Asaf Cidon, CEO and co-founder of Sookasa. “As businesses migrate to the cloud, they’re increasingly turning to Office 365, and our solution gives them confidence that they’re getting the security they need while enabling employee productivity.”
Sookasa, an API-based Cloud Access Security Broker and the leading provider of client-side encryption for Dropbox and Google Drive, simplifies SaaS security with a fully integrated suite of products as well as a single dashboard from which admins can detect potential data breach risks, protect sensitive data, and enforce security policies across their cloud solutions, from enterprise file sync-and-share to communication platforms and customer databases.
Sookasa’s new product, Office 365 Audit, leverages Microsoft’s API to let team administrators monitor real-time activity across team accounts. This allows them to audit sharing across file sync-and-share and email platforms; identify domain and location anomalies; and detect and protect sensitive data stored on the cloud. Organizations also get detailed cloud analytics to discover activity across Office 365, assess risk, identify data extraction irregularities, and more.
Microsoft launched Office 365, its SaaS version of Office, in 2011. Studies show that since then, it has become one of the most widely used business SaaS applications, particularly as customers migrate their on-prem email and file systems to the cloud. More than half a billion individuals manage their files in OneDrive, and adoption of OneDrive for Business has grown 179 percent over the last year. As adoption of Office 365 continues to grow among businesses, security capabilities like securing mobile devices, encrypting data at the file-level, and auditing employee usage have become table stakes in order to prevent data breaches and stop accidental sharing of confidential information.
“Since integrating with Dropbox and Google Drive, we’ve heard again and again from Office 365 customers that they need something similar,” Cidon said. “Relying on a multitude of tools to secure Office 365 and other SaaS environments has simply become impractical. Sookasa’s all-in-one solution gives you everything you need, all in one place.”
