Netskope for Slack Comes Online
for Slack provides full visibility and control for Slack Enterprise
Grid. Used to secure the world’s largest Slack implementation, Netskope
for Slack is the most comprehensive solution available in a cloud access
security broker (CASB) platform, providing security teams deep insight
into and control over files and data shared in Slack, safeguarding
valuable intellectual property, ensuring regulatory compliance, and
protecting against threats such as malware and ransomware.
"Slack has swiftly climbed the ranks
of organizations large and small, cementing itself as one of the most
popular collaboration services; but with new ways of sharing come more
opportunities for data and sensitive information to get in the wrong
hands," said Sanjay Beri, founder and CEO, Netskope. "Netskope for Slack
gives enterprise IT the peace of mind to understand what kinds of
information are being shared within Slack and the authority to limit
certain dangerous activities. We are proud to have worked to secure some
of the world's largest Slack deployments and be part of the security
solution for a company changing the way enterprise teams work together."
•Visibility across all Slack teams from a single platform: A risk dashboard shows contextual details about Slack usage and its integrated ecosystem apps. IT can drill down on users and activities, and delve into files and messages that contain data violations and understand which of those have been shared both internally and externally.
•Granular control of Slack users, activities, and data: Netskope for Slack allows IT to create granular, contextual policies based on app, user, activity, teams, and more. Custom policies can restrict certain activities like sharing personally identifiable information (PII) in Slack channels, and custom messages help coach employees when restricting certain activities.
•Advanced, enterprise cloud DLP: Industry-leading cloud data loss prevention (DLP) detects data violations in Slack. Existing or custom-built DLP profiles uncover and protect PII, payment card industry information (PCI), protected health information (PHI), source code and more.
•Cloud threat and malware protection:
The Netskope machine learning- and rules-based anomaly detection engine
can alert IT to suspicious logins, excessive activity, data exfiltration
and compromised credentials to help resolve situations faster. Using the
anti-malware capabilities in Netskope Threat Protection, teams can
detect and remediate cloud malware and ransomware in real time or on
files already resident within the Slack instance.
