360° protection for your clouds


Data-centric protection

Cloud XD gives you 360-degree data protection, guarding your data wherever it goes. Using a combination of big data analytics and advanced data loss prevention (DLP) capabilities, including exact matching, optical character recognition (OCR), and fingerprinting, Cloud XDTM increases detection efficiency and accuracy, and enables intuitive reporting.


Cloud-smart security

Cloud XD understands the language of the cloud (i.e. APIs, JSON, etc.) to give you granular visibility into the users, devices, applications, risk ratings, URL categories, and activities in your cloud and web environments. It then takes smart actions, such as allow, block, delete, encrypt, quarantine and more, based on your enforcement policies.


Cloud-enabled threat protection


Cloud phishing and cloud-enabled threats are using managed cloud services with rogue or compromised accounts to evade legacy web and email defenses making phishing attacks on SaaS and webmail number one today. Prevent and detect cloud phishing, malicious payloads, C2 communications, data exfiltration, and lateral movement.


Understanding content and context

Allow is the new block when your defenses understand account instance and activity for cloud services. Instance can determine company, personal or rogue accounts, plus activity can be related to device, location and other policy variables to mitigate risk and data exposure for thousands of cloud services.


Rich metadata for investigations

Cloud XD decodes cloud services, apps, and web traffic to produce 90 days of rich metadata for content and context enabling increased visibility for investigations and incident response. Enable SOC teams with threat intelligence, incident details, and solution integration via open APIs and standard IOC formats.
