CloudLock Launches Industry's First CASB and Cybersecurity-as-a-Service for Slack and the Enterprise SDLC

CloudLock's Cloud-Native Security Fabric Delivers Cloud DLP, Compliance Enforcement and Threat Protection With User Entity and Behavior Analytics

WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwired - Nov 17, 2015) - CloudLock, the leading provider of Cloud Access Security Brokerage (CASB) and Cybersecurity-as-a-Service solutions, today launched CloudLock for Slack, the first cybersecurity solution specifically designed to identify and remediate security risks for organizations leveraging Slack and the enterprise software development lifecycle (SDLC).

With more than 1.7 million daily active users in more than 60,000 teams, and more than 1 million integrations that end-users have set up, Slack is among the fastest growing corporate collaboration platforms in the world. Slack integrates with more than 100 other cloud services, including Google Drive, Trello, Github and Twitter. While the benefits of cloud collaboration are undeniable, organizations currently lack the insight and controls to ensure core security demands as well as internal and regulatory compliance while using Slack and other cloud platforms. For example, developers copying and pasting code snippets (considered intellectual property by some organizations) into Slack, which then syncs to another app connected to Slack and is potentially accessible to an attacker via the connection. Other sensitive information often being posted in messages by users include SSH keys and personal credentials which could pose potential exposure risks.

CloudLock for Slack is one of the components of the CloudLock Security Fabric, a unified cloud cybersecurity-as-a-service platform for any cloud environment, including off-the-shelf SaaS, IaaS, PaaS, IDaaS, as well as custom and homegrown cloud apps. Deployed as a cloud-native service in less than five minutes without any configuration required, CloudLock for Slack provides cloud cybersecurity for a number of different scenarios, including:

  • Data Breach Prevention with Cloud DLP. CloudLock gives organizations the visibility and control needed need to protect sensitive data in Slack and other cloud applications, allowing for fast detection and response to risks such as over sharing, inadvertent exposure, malicious data extraction, and cyberthreats.
  • Account Compromise and Threat Protection with User Entity and Behavior Analytics (UEBA). By correlating events across Slack and other SaaS, IaaS, PaaS, and IDaaS platforms, CloudLock provides insight into abnormal user activities and identifies breaches that may otherwise go undetected -- all while having no impact on end users.
  • Compliance and Policy Enforcement. With its Smart Policy Engine, CloudLock can easily identify the presence of sensitive or toxic data such as PCI, PHI, PII and IP, and enforce centralized policies.
  • Security Operations & Forensics. CloudLock provides user activity data collection and visual forensics to detect security breaches, reduce incident investigation times, and comply with regulations. Easily determine "who did what and when" to gather evidence and simplify investigations.

"This is an important step for CloudLock, Slack users and software developers, as we continue to break down barriers to cloud adoption and help companies realize the immediate value of collaborating safely and securely," said Gil Zimmermann, CEO and co-founder at CloudLock. "Extending the CloudLock Security Fabric to support Slack, the fastest growing cloud collaboration platform, now allows organizations to embrace a people-centric approach to security quickly, and without any negative impact on the experience."

CloudLock for Slack represents the first of step in expanding CloudLock's Security Fabric to a full suite of cybersecurity-as-a-service solutions specifically designed for the full enterprise software development lifecycle. CloudLock will be adding a number of additional connectors in early 2016.
