A US Bank Secures Office 365 with Bitglass' CASB

Case Study

This US-based bank 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.

The bank decided they needed solutions for single sign-on, mobile security, and access control. After looking at offerings from several vendors, the bank determined that the Bitglass cloud access security broker (CASB) was the only offering 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. Consequently, the bank chose Bitglass.

Bitglass enables the bank 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 respects user privacy and targets only corporate data. Best of all, the Bitglass' CASB requires no software to be installed on users' devices.

“After comparing a number of CASBs, we found that only Bitglass delivers a complete solution for visibility, security, and control of data in Office 365.”
