The adoption of social and collaboration channels

The rise of remote workforce and WFH

 

74% of CFOs intend to permanently shift some employees to remote work.

 

Home networks are blighted by legacy routers, PCs, and IOT devices. Protecting this highly distributed remote environment from attacks and breaches is a major security challenge.

The rise of social cyber attacks

 

Email security is a $3 billion industry. But security for collaboration, chat, and social channels is under-developed.

Enhanced Visibility

 

Security teams need to be able to discover and onboard all authorized accounts for protection, inspect messaging for malicious content, track new connection requests, and archive all account activity.

Threat Detection

 

Channels need to be monitored 24/7 for suspicious activity and messaging. All files, attachments and links should be automatically scanned for malware, and connections should be evaluated for known or suspicious bad actors.

Incident Response

 

Malware must be quarantined in real time at the app level, and IOC notification details sent to SOC/SIEM for evaluation. Social attacks need to be correlated with EDR.
