How do you ensure employees can’t store your corporate data in the public cloud?

Another week, another huge hack attack.

Dropbox is the latest company to have its users’ data dangled in harm’s way after a major cyber attack involving 68 million personal records.

Whilst most businesses IT policies don’t allow (or prohibit) their staff sorting corporate data on Public Cloud File Sharing sites – how do you actually enforce it?  Many customers I work with (and I’m sure you do) use public file sharing sites like this to share corporate in the cloud data simply because its easy…

You Can protect your Corporate Data and IP

With Microsoft Enterprise Mobility and Security (EMS),  businesses can maintain and more importantly enforce compliance by digitally protecting and encrypting all data whether at rest or in transit along with end to end visibility, insights, auditing and logging. This is all done by Azure Rights Management and means that all (or selective aspects) of your data can be protected so even if it does find its way on a public hacked site such as DropBox, your business and your clients can be assured that the documents are still secure and protected.

Controlling your data’s journey

Whilst EMS can protect data that you choose to be protected, you can also ensure that users are unable to put your data outside of your business in the first case.

Mobile Application Mangers such as Microsoft Intune can help prevent corporate owned or BYOD devices storing, copying or moving corporate data into un-approved applications or services in the first place and Cloud App Security (also part of EMS) can provide gradual reports on all user and SaaS activity.
