As more organizations embrace cloud apps to improve productivity and enable modern workforce solutions, their attack surface is impacted. While some of these applications are pretty risky, from a cyber threat standpoint, others are grossly not compliant with the regulations that organizations need to observe. 


What is Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps? Is it Any Good?

Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps is a Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) that operates on multiple cloud platforms. It provides rich visibility, control over data travel, and sophisticated analytics to identify and combat cyber threats across all your cloud services.
Traditional security suites that weren’t built with cloud applications are susceptible to blind spots in an IT administrator’s field of view. Microsoft Defender for Cloud App collects SaaS application logs across your entire organization’s infrastructure and aggregates them in a single console.
Whether your organization is already utilizing Microsoft Defender for Cloud App installed or has plans to implement Microsoft Defender for Endpoint, contact Cloudilax Solutions for a free consultation to see how we can help optimize and improve your organization’s security posture.
