Palerra Extends Support for Microsoft Office 365, Now Securing SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business, and Azure Active Directory

Palerra LORIC Provides Integrated Security Across All Office 365 Components, Ensuring Consistent Policy Framework as Application Adoption Expands

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - May 11, 2016) - Palerra, a leading Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), today announced that Palerra LORIC now supports additional components of the Microsoft Office 365 Platform, including SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business, and Azure Active Directory, in addition to Exchange Online. The Palerra LORIC platform provides comprehensive security monitoring and protection for Office 365 across both end-user and administrator activity, behavior, configurations, and transactions, without impacting the end user experience -- whether Office 365 applications are accessed from within the corporate network, roaming off the network, or on either managed or unmanaged devices.

In addition to securing individual components of Office 365, Palerra LORIC provides overarching benefits to the organization, including correlation of activity events across the Microsoft platform and user behavior analytics to help detect and predict data leakage risks due to malicious insiders and outsiders. With Palerra LORIC, the IT security team also has the ability to identify shadow IT usage of unapproved services, in place of corporate standards like SharePoint or OneDrive. When an incident does arise, Palerra LORIC's automation capabilities and built-in Office 365 incident recommendation library help customers remediate faster by reducing dependency on expert skills, saving the Security Operations Center (SOC) time and money.

"As adoption of Office 365 has expanded from cloud-based email to collaboration, storage and access in the cloud, Palerra has expanded its coverage as well. We are the only CASB to provide configuration monitoring for Office 365 and are dedicated to providing IT security teams complete protection and peace of mind by quickly identifying and addressing security issues across their entire cloud footprint, including all services and capabilities of Office 365," said Adina Simu, VP of products for Palerra. "While Microsoft continues to invest in the security of their services, Palerra is also the only CASB that extends Microsoft's rich native security capabilities, including digital rights management and DLP. This eliminates redundancies and ensures that the enterprise has one consistent company-wide policy framework."

New Office 365 Components Supported:

SharePoint Online - Palerra LORIC support for SharePoint Online enables organizations to monitor who is accessing files and documents, audit federated and external users for extranet collaboration, oversee administrative privileges for potential misuse, and govern the sharing of files both internally and externally. Palerra LORIC can also detect risky activities, overly permissive policy and configuration settings, as well as detect anomalies and threats.

OneDrive for Business - Palerra LORIC support of OneDrive for Business includes visibility into actions performed on sensitive files, the ability to monitor documents shared outside the enterprise, and governance of file sharing and Data Loss Prevention (DLP) policies. Palerra LORIC can also detect insider threats and identify risky users and data.

Azure Active Directory - Palerra LORIC support of Azure Active Directory provides visibility into activities that may compromise the overall security of the service, including detecting user access from malicious IPs, IP hopping, and user privilege changes and user account brute-force attacks. Palerra LORIC offers a comprehensive dashboard and audit reports for visibility into user activities. A new integration with Azure Active Directory also provides identity data that enriches the Palerra LORIC platform with additional behavioral and threat analytics.

Palerra LORIC support for Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business and Azure Active Directory is available immediately. For more information, visit: http://palerra.com/platform/loric-office-365-security/
