Ad Agency Secures Office 365
with Bitglass

Case Study

This global ad agency headquartered in the western United States was looking to migrate from an on-premises solution to Office 365 in order to cut costs and increase employee productivity. Office 365 offered the latest software features, required no on-premises infrastructure, and could be accessed by users from any device, anywhere, for maximum productivity.

Some of the ad agency’s large clients, including Microsoft and Walmart, had concerns about the security of their creative assets. As such, the ad agency looked into adding another layer of security to their public cloud apps. The agency decided they needed solutions for single sign-on, mobile security, and access control. After looking at offerings from several vendors, the agency determined that the Bitglass cloud access security broker (CASB) was the only solution that met all of their requirements—a complete SSO solution, mobile security, API scanning, DLP, and access control on both managed and unmanaged devices, all in a single, integrated package. Naturally, the agency chose Bitglass.

Bitglass enables the company to synchronize their directory via AD, and enforce SSO control on all cloud apps, including Office 365. Bitglass also features API integration to monitor and control sensitive data at rest in Office 365, and delivers contextual access control by user, by device, by geography, by network, and more. Users on managed devices are allowed full access to data while users on unmanaged devices have limited access. Bitglass ensures that users on unmanaged devices are not permitted to install client software that automatically syncs SharePoint and OneDrive data. Bitglass also delivers mobile security capabilities, requiring device encryption and PIN codes to unlock devices, as well as enabling selective wipe that targets only corporate information and respects user privacy. Best of all, Bitglass' CASB technology can be deployed agentlessly, requiring no software installations on endpoints. 

“After comparing a number of CASBs, we found that only Bitglass delivers a complete solution for SSO, Mobile and Access Control.”
