Zero-day security and contextual access control ensures that appropriate access to Spark is provisioned based on the context by which the user is accessing the application. Policies can be defined based on access method (browser or native app), device (managed vs unmanaged), location (by country or IP address range), group, and more. Typically, users on secure, managed devices will be allowed access from thick client apps, while users on unmanaged devices are restricted to browser access. Only Bitglass agentless AJAX-VM technology delivers proxied access on any browser without the need for agents.
Cisco Spark is the leading cloud collaboration platform that provides messaging, calling, and meeting features. While Cisco goes to great lengths to secure its application and infrastructure against intrusions and attacks, it is your responsibility as the Enterprise Customer to enforce Data Protection & DLP policies on the data being loaded into and shared on Cisco Spark. It is also your responsibility to ensure that external parties you are interacting with do not spread malware into your meeting rooms. Bitglass Next-Gen CASB Cloud Access Security Broker delivers Zero-Day real-time data and threat protection.
Zero-day Security for Cisco Spark
Intelligent Native DLP
Bitglass’ integrated, high-performance Data Loss Prevention engine is compatible with the leading network and endpoint-based DLP systems. Paired with a comprehensive catalog of pre-built identifiers for a wide range of data types, you’ll have the flexibility to build policies from scratch, pull from the Bitglass catalog, import policies from premises-based DLP solutions, or integrate via ICAP. Most organizations choose to sync policies directly from premises-based DLP systems, avoiding severe performance penalties while ensuring consistent policy enforcement anywhere.
DLP policies can be enforced in real-time on the proxy for uploads and downloads, or via the Cisco Spark API for data-at-rest in the cloud.
The Bitglass DLP engine is paired with a wide range of remediation actions, built to allow you to safely extend access to sensitive data, even in risky contexts. Actions include alerts, dynamic application of encryption or rights management (DRM), redaction of sensitive content, watermarking and tracking, quarantine, share removal, and blocking.
Advanced Threat Protection on any device
Messaging and file-sharing apps are attractive vehicles for for malware. Bitglass’ Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) powered by Cylance, blocks the spread of unknown and zero day attacks, ensuring that your Spark deployment never becomes a proliferation point for the spread of malware across your managed or BYO devices.
Advanced Threat Protection policies can be enforced in real-time on the proxy for uploads and downloads, or via the Cisco Spark API for data-at-rest in the cloud.
