CloudSOC CASB Gateway

Symantec Data Loss Prevention - Now in the Cloud with CloudSOC CASB  

10-24-2016 05:38 PM

We are so happy to announce that we did it! We created the industry’s first integrated cloud security solution with true enterprise DLP and full cloud access security broker (CASB) capabilities. And it’s available now.

From the moment the Symantec acquisition of Blue Coat closed in August, our joined development teams went all in to solve this critical issue.  And we did it in just over two months!

Security is the biggest challenge faced by enterprises adopting cloud apps – especially with popular business apps like Office 365 or Salesforce where all kinds of sensitive company data will be stored and shared, because:

  • Accidents happen: The ease-of-use that makes cloud apps excellent for collaboration, also makes it easy to accidentally expose data. Research shows that 23% of files in cloud apps are broadly shared and 12% of those files contain sensitive or compliance-related data.*
  • Attackers target cloud: Bad actors use brute force attacks and malware to break into cloud app accounts. In the first 6 months of 2016, 37% of abnormal cloud app activity indicated attempts to takeover cloud accounts and 63% of abnormal cloud app activity indicated attempts to steal data.*
  • Stay compliant, or else: Regulatory requirements are growing stricter and the penalties for being non-compliant can be very expensive. In February of 2016 alone, the FCC assigned nearly $36 Million in fines to companies for PII violations.

The Solution

Symantec customers can now get complete visibility and control of data in the cloud with fully integrated Symantec DLP and Symantec CloudSOC CASB.  


Symantec DLP Cloud

You can uncover data blind spots in the cloud by extending your Symantec DLP with the new DLP Cloud Service Connector, a content detection service powered by the same, industry-leading technology as our on-premises software. With Cloud Service Connector, you can:

  • Discover sensitive data in 60+ cloud apps including Office 365, Box, Dropbox, Google Apps, or Salesforce via integration with CloudSOC.
  • Get faster performance running DLP detection as a service rather than on-premises.
  • Manage DLP from one console where you can enforce policies and workflows everywhere – in the cloud and on-premises.
  • Leverage your existing DLP policies and workflows to extend your finely tuned rules sets and business logic to cloud apps.

Symantec CloudSOC

In addition to the Symantec DLP Cloud integration, CloudSOC also provides full CASB visibility and control directly over user activity in cloud apps. You can use CloudSOC to:

  • Detect and mitigate risky user activity by leveraging user behavior analytics to identify, block or remediate potentially malicious activity in cloud apps.
  • Protect against the risk of exposure with granular visibility and control over user access and transactions with data in cloud apps.
  • Investigate cloud incidents by easily monitoring cloud events using granular log data through an intuitive user interface.
  • Discover shadow IT, identify potentially thousands of cloud services and analyze applications for their business readiness.
