Cisco acquired a company called CloudLock that creates solutions to protect their customers against data breaches in any cloud environment and application (app) through a highly configurable cloud-based data loss prevention (DLP) architecture. CloudLock has numerous out-of-the-box policies and a wide range of automated, policy-driven response actions, including the following:
1. File-level encryption
3. End-user notifications
These policies are designed to provide common data protection and help with compliance. CloudLock also can monitor data at rest within platforms via an API and provide visibility of user activity through retroactive monitoring capabilities. This solution helps organizations defend against account compromises with cross-platform User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) for Software as a Service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Identity as a Service (IDaaS) environments.
CloudLock uses advanced machine learning to be able to detect anomalies and to identify activities in different countries that can be whitelisted or blacklisted in the platform. CloudLock Apps Firewall is a feature that discovers and controls malicious cloud apps that may be interacting with the corporate network.
