In a remarkably short span, Slack has become one of the most popular cloud services used across businesses. Between its early focus on winning over developers who quickly became incredibly effective evangelists for Slack throughout their respective organizations, and its aggressive moves to integrate with other popular enterprise cloud services for a more connected experience, Slack provided a distinct model for other cloud services to follow. Indeed, the Netskope Cloud Report identifies Slack among its list of 20 most-used cloud services in the enterprise.
As with any enterprise cloud service, organizations using Slack need to be confident that they are protected from sensitive data loss and threats like malware and ransomware. On that note, I’m excited to share that today we officially released Netskope for Slack, a comprehensive solution that enables users to collaborate in Slack while giving IT and security teams the visibility, control, and peace of mind to safely and securely enable the collaboration service.
Netskope for Slack offers surgical visibility into usage of Slack and its integrated ecosystem apps, granular access controls, data loss prevention, and threat and malware protection. With Netskope, you have a complete risk dashboard on users, devices, and activities within Slack across public channels, messages, posts, snippets, and files.
You can enforce policies on messages and files that may contain sensitive information or even take action to restrict files shared through cloud storage links such as Box or Dropbox. Automated workflows such as quarantine and legal hold move potentially risky files for review into a dedicated Slack channel for security admins to review, and a single incident management dashboard in Netskope allows for closed-loop remediation of policy violations.
In addition, Netskope’s advanced, enterprise cloud DLP lets you detect data violations in-transit or at rest in Slack. You can uncover and protect content containing sensitive data using pre-built profiles like personally identifiable information (PII), payment card industry data (PCI), protected health information (PHI), source code, profanity, and more. You also have the option to custom-build DLP profiles using Netskope’s robust set of advanced cloud DLP features such as 3,000+ data identifiers, 500+ file types, and more.
Slack has changed the way that teams collaborate and its meteoric adoption shows no signs of slowing. Learn more about Slack Enterprise Grid here. Want to tell your teammates or business counterparts about Netskope for Slack? Get in touch with us today.
