SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–McAfee, the device-to-cloud cybersecurity company, today announced
McAfee MVISION Cloud for Microsoft Teams, a comprehensive security and
compliance integration for Teams. McAfee MVISION Cloud for Microsoft
Teams is an extension to the already available comprehensive security
solution that McAfee MVISION Cloud has for Microsoft Office 365. This
solution nicely complements Team’s capabilities by using a frictionless
API-based cloud-native approach that allows IT teams to seamlessly
enforce data loss prevention (DLP) policies and collaboration controls,
contextual access control, address threats from insiders and compromised
accounts, audit all user activity and secure corporate data as users
collaborate in the cloud.
Teams is a chat-based workspace in Office 365 that brings together
people, conversations and content—along with the tools that teams
need—so they can easily collaborate to achieve more. It’s integrated
with the familiar Office 365 applications and is built from the ground
up on the Office 365, secure cloud. With McAfee MVISION Cloud for
Microsoft Teams, companies can answer employees’ requests for a
collaboration platform, while enforcing the security capabilities they
need to keep data safe.
“McAfee MVISION Cloud enables IT and security teams to consistently
enforce security and compliance controls across all their SaaS, PaaS and
IaaS applications, including Microsoft Teams,” said Rajiv Gupta, vice
president of the Cloud Security Business Unit. “We’re thrilled to
integrate with another industry-leading cloud solution to protect
corporate data, while providing employees with the freedom to use cloud
services that drive productivity and collaboration.”
Levon Esibov, Partner PM Director, Information Protection, Microsoft
Teams at Microsoft said, “We’re pleased to see McAfee’s commitment to
supporting and securing this ever-increasing demand. McAfee MVISION
Cloud integrates with Microsoft Teams APIs—ensuring our joint customers
can successfully meet key security and compliance requirements.”
McAfee MVISION Cloud for Microsoft Teams provides a full set of
security, governance and compliance capabilities, including:
A unified, cloud-native security platform: leverages McAfee’s
CASB technology (DLP, threat protection, collaboration control,
activity monitoring, access control) in a single, unified
platform—offering a frictionless, cloud-native solution for
organizations to consistently protect their data and defend against
threats in the cloud.
Modern data security: IT can extend existing DLP policies to
messages and files in all types of Teams channels, enforcing policies
based on keywords, fingerprints, data identifiers, regular expressions
and match highlighting for content and metadata.
Collaboration control: messages or files posted in channels can
be restricted to specific users, including blocking the sharing of
data to any external location.
Comprehensive remediation: enables auditing of regulated data
uploaded to Microsoft Teams and remediates policy violations by
coaching users, notifying administrators, quarantining, tombstoning,
restoring and deleting user actions. End users can autonomously
correct their actions, removing incidents from IT’s queue.
Threat prevention: empowers organizations to detect and prevent
anomalous behavior indicative of insider threats and compromised
accounts. McAfee captures a complete record of all user activity in
Teams and leverages machine learning to analyze activity across
multiple heuristics to accurately detect threats.
Forensic investigations: with an auto-generated, detailed audit
trail of all user activity, McAfee MVISION Cloud for Microsoft Teams
provides rich capabilities for forensics and investigations.
On-the-go security, for on-the-go policies: helps secure
multiple access modes, including browsers and native apps, and applies
controls based on contextual factors, including user, device, data and
location. Personal devices lacking adequate control over data can be
blocked from access.
