Today we would like to explain how Microsoft Cloud App Security integrates with third-party Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solutions – Symantec Data Loss Prevention and Forcepoint DLP. This extends your current DLP engine’s ability to manage sensitive data across enterprise cloud apps. While customers all over the world use Office 365 DLP to protect their sensitive data in Exchange Online, SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business, we also recognize that many customers have already invested in multiple DLP solutions across their environment and want to extend this investment to protect their cloud applications. At Microsoft Ignite 2017we showcasedhow we extend the same DLP capabilities to other cloud applications like Salesforce, Box, and more.
Data Loss Prevention solutions can help an organization manage and monitor the usage and sharing of sensitive information such as financial data, intellectual property, and other critical company data. Malicious insiders, poor understanding of information protection processes, and employees that simply do not practice secure data management may all contribute to substantive data exposures, costing companies millions of dollars in damages and lost data.
