The iboss Platform
CASB Cloud Application Visibility & Controls
The ability to apply fine grained controls and gain visibility into cloud application use is critical with the move of applications to the cloud. The iboss cloud is the gateway to the cloud giving it the ability to control cloud applications and provide visibility into cloud application use. Cloud application controls are extensive and range from Facebook, to Google to Microsoft. This includes making Facebook read-only, ensuring access to Google Drive is corporate only and leveraging Microsoft Office 365 Tenant restrictions.
The iboss cloud includes extensive cloud application controls spanning applications such as Spotify, Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Search Engines. The policies can be applied on a per user or per group basis to prevent actions such as posting sensitive information to social media sites which violate PCI and HIPAA compliance. In addition, visibility into applications is provided in detailed real-time dashboards and drill down reports. Since iboss cloud lives in the cloud, controls and visibility is applied to all users in regardless location.
Application controls span the suite of Google Apps, including Google Drive. This includes enforcing Safe Search on Google to reduce liability and ensure compliance as well as controls across the vast suite of Google Applications. Applications include Google Cloudprint, Google Trends, Google Research, Google Wallet, Google Maps, Google Translation, Shopping, Google Groups, Google Play, Google Video, Google Sites, Gmail and Google Earth. In addition, Gmail, Google Drive, Google Docs, Google Plus, Google Groups and Google Sites can be restricted to only company use by restricting access to the registered G-Suite company domain.
The iboss cloud provides the most powerful Gen-3 CASB on the market, ensuring data transfers from devices are controlled and remain within corporate owned cloud accounts. For example, if a user is accessing Office 365 from the office or at home, data transfers from the device are forced into the corporate owned office 365 account. For Google services, such as Google Drive, file uploads can be forced to the organization’s Google Drive account instead of a personal use Google Drive account. Slack can also be controlled so that the use of messaging remains within the corporate Slack account. Gen-3 CASB prevents data loss and shadow IT by controlling the network data from the device to destinations in the cloud. Gen-3 CASB protects what legacy CASB technology misses by ensuring all network transfers end up in the right place in the cloud.
The iboss cloud is natively and extensively integrated with Microsoft. This includes integrations across Office 365, Microsoft Azure, and Microsoft Cloud App Security CASB. The Office 365 integration ensures fast and uninterrupted connections to Microsoft while Microsoft Office 365 Tenant restrictions ensures appropriate access to Office 365. The Office 365 Tenant restriction can be applied on a per-group basis.
In addition, Microsoft CAS integration extends the extensive application controls and visibility provided within the iboss cloud platform to seamlessly include all of the CASB controls within Microsoft CAS. Enabling Microsoft CAS couldn’t be easier and only requires enabling the feature and leveraging an existing Microsoft CAS subscription.
The rest is handled by the iboss cloud including sending the necessary user data to Microsoft for processing. In addition, any application sanctioned within the Microsoft CAS platform synchronize automatically with iboss which ensures shadow IT and unsanctioned applications are controlled for users wherever they roam.
