Microsoft Cloud App Security proxy is now in public preview

At Microsoft Ignite 2017, we announced the upcoming public preview of the Microsoft Cloud App Security proxy. We are very excited that the time has arrived, and this feature is now in public preview!

In this blog, we’ll dive deeper into the functional implementation of the proxy and explain key productivity use-case scenarios. Our goal is to provide you detailed information to help you secure your cloud app data and perform real-time monitoring.

Let’s get started!

Extend conditional access capabilities for real-time control of user sessions in cloud apps

Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) conditional access and Microsoft Cloud App Security proxy capabilities work hand in hand to provide real-time monitoring and session control for cloud apps. In-session controls start with an Azure AD conditional access policy. IT admins build a conditional access policy to define who (users or groups of users) and what applications should be routed to the Microsoft Cloud App Security proxy, forming a set of conditions that can include user sign-in risk. In public preview, these policies apply to SAML-based app logins.

After you select use of Cloud App Security proxy as a session control in Azure AD console, conditional access engine evaluates each user’s sign-in to determine if there is a policy in place for the specific set of conditions the user is coming from. If so, Azure AD sends that information to the Microsoft Cloud App Security proxy and, based on the filters set in the Cloud App Security session policy, the appropriate actions are taken on the user activities.

Set granular policies to restrict user activities and limit content access

Cloud App Security session policies help you to control and limit the user activities in the session itself. To do this, you define additional conditions for the session through filters, then you define the types of control (e.g. block download) you would like to implement based on these conditions.
