At Microsoft we understand the world is changing. Your people are mobile, and more and more of your company data is in the cloud. We embrace this mobile first, cloud first world, and you see it in our products; for example, Microsoft Azure Active Directory supports single-sign-on from over 2500 Software as a Service (SaaS) applications and conditional access from across iOS, Android and Windows devices. We know that some of our customers are looking for even finer grained security, control and monitoring. We want our cloud customers to have enhanced identity-driven security capabilities, and that is why we acquired Adallom , a leader in the Cloud Access Security Broker market (CASB). Adallom makes it easy to keep your data safe in the cloud. With Adallom, you can use log analytics to uncover SaaS application activity, you can define and enforce cross-SaaS policy (so you can maintain control of your data), you can address auditing and reporting requirements (so you can see who did what, when) and you will benefit from threat protection (so you can identify and block suspicious behavior). With Adallom, you can move to the cloud with confidence knowing that you will have the right visibility, controls and protections to keep your data safe. At Microsoft we want to lay your foundation for the cloud. This foundation starts with Identity and extends to securing your entire cloud. To this end, we are 100% committed to securing all of your popular SaaS applications from Salesforce, to Box, to Workday, to Google Apps, to Office 365 and more. We don't want you to think that you need to go somewhere else to get the best solution for your entire cloud ecosystem. Microsoft is committed to taking Adallom, and its great people, and investing to deliver the best security for all of your SaaS applications. With that in mind, today we are excited to announce some new capabilities from Adallom that demonstrate our ongoing commitment to the CASB space. We are now a member of Box Trust , the security ecosystem of partners created by Box. As part of this we have added some new features to Adallom including:
As part of our platform approach and our partnership with HP , we now support HP Voltage SecureData encryption as an additional encryption option. We are also previewing a new connector for Workday that provides you with full visibility into Workday activity. As with all other applications, this visibility is fed into our alerting and anomaly detection engines and provides you with the actionable security insights that your security team needs to keep your critical company data protected. As always, we welcome your feedback and questions. Please let us know what you think by leaving a comment on this post, and we hope this great technology from Adallom (that is now part of Microsoft) will make you more secure!
