Microsoft on What’s new in Microsoft Cloud App Security @Ignite 2017


A changing culture of work is driving a rapid increase in cloud app usage by employees. According to our own telemetry, the average organization has more than 25 different cloud storage apps and more than 40 collaboration apps routinely used by its employees. With this fast transition to cloud app usage, helping you protect your corporate data is a top priority for the Microsoft Cloud App Security team.

Earlier this week at Ignite, Microsoft announced new Microsoft 365 Security capabilities – including important enhancements to and new integrations with Microsoft Cloud App Security. In this blog, I will provide you a more detailed understanding of these capabilities.

Control and limit access to cloud apps with proxy

With the rising number of cybersecurity attacks, our first objective is to protect your organization right at the front door. Our approach in Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS) starts with providing you a strong conditional access and modern authentication strategy. With Azure Active Directory conditional access, criteria such as user identity, device health, location and sign in risk driven from Microsoft’s Intelligent Security Graph, are applied to help you secure access.

As showcased at Ignite keynote sessions, we’re extending these conditional access capabilities to monitor user sessions and control content access and downloads directly inside SaaS apps through a unique integration between Microsoft Cloud App Security and Azure AD conditional access. So, what does this mean? As explained in the Microsoft defense in-depth whitepaper, Cloud App Security will act “like a security escort” between cloud apps and users. For example, you can allow access to browser-based cloud apps from unmanaged devices or an unfamiliar location while blocking the download of sensitive documents from within the application.
