Cloud App Security

Advanced threat and data protection for Office 365 and cloud file-sharing services

As you adopt cloud-based enterprise applications such as Microsoft®Office 365, Box, Dropbox,and Google Drive, you need to be more vigilant about security than ever. While these applications are delivered in a secure manner, you share the responsibility to secure the content that passes through them.

What are the risks?

  • 79% of ransomware attacks1 and over 90% of targeted attacks start with email
  • Ransomware families grew 752%1 and cost businesses $1 billion in 20162
  • Business Email Compromise (BEC) attacks cost an average of $132,000 per incident3
  • Remote workers, partners, and customers may unknowingly share malicious files using cloud file sharing services
  • The security included with Office 365 (E3 and below) is designed to detect known malware but over 90% of malware is unknown

The potential costs are too high to accept baseline security that only protects against a small portion of threats.

Trend Micro Cloud App Security enables you to embrace the efficiency of cloud services while maintaining security. It protects incoming and internal Office 365 email from advanced malware and other threats, and enforces compliance on other cloud file-sharing services, including Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, SharePoint® Online, and OneDrive® for Business.

Cloud App Security integrates directly with Office 365 and other services using APIs, maintaining all user functionality without rerouting email traffic or setting up a web proxy.

Key Advantages

Protects Office 365 email from phishing and advanced malware

  • Uses multiple patternless techniques, including sandbox analysis to find unknown threats.
  • Uses artificial intelligence to examine email intention and attack indicators to identify Business Email Compromise (BEC) attacks. More stringent protection can be set up for high-profile users.
  • Finds malware hidden in common Office file formats and PDF documents with the unique document-exploit detection engine.
  • Blocks emails with malicious URLs before delivery and re-analyzes URLs in real time when a user clicks on one.
  • Combines pre-execution machine learning, anti-malware, heuristics, and dynamic analysis using award winning4 sandboxing to detect ransomware and other zero-day malware. Sandbox analysis uses multiple operating systems and extensive anti-evasion technology.
  • Protects internal email and allows manual scan to uncover attacks already in progress. Enforces compliance for cloud file-sharing services
  • Provides DLP and advanced malware protection for Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, SharePoint Online, and OneDrive for Business.
  • Enables consistent DLP policies across multiple cloud-based applications.
  • Discovers compliance data in existing stored files and email by scanning databases.
  • Simplifies setup with more than 240 pre-built compliance templates, user/group policies, and support for Microsoft Rights Management services.
”Trend Micro has a proven track record in endpoint and cloud security, and it is the one of the first leading vendors to offer a combination of advanced security solutions for Office 365."
