total slack security

secure cloud-based team collaboration

In just a few short years, Slack has skyrocketed to the top of the heap of team collaboration solutions. In many enterprises, it started as small workgroup deployments (Shadow IT) but has grown virally to the point where IT teams can no longer ignore it. Compounding the challenge is that, like many high growth startups, Slack has not been without security issues, including a high profile data breach in 2015. With everyone from developers to executives using the tool to exchange sensitive information, more organizations are turning to Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASBs) like Bitglass to protect data in Slack.


guard against sensitive data leakage

Bitglass automatically scans your entire Slack deployment, across all teams and channels. Through ongoing crawling, sensitive data is discovered, while also identifying high risk sharing, such as public URLs or non-employees in a given channel that contains sensitive content.
      • Identify sensitive data in Slack via Bitglass’ Citadel DLP. Leverage a library of pre-defined policies to scan for PHI, PII, PCI data, and more, or build/import your own DLP policies.
      • Continuously monitor all aspects of your Slack environment to identify sensitive data and files, non-employee members of Slack teams, and publicly shareable URLs.

manage risk across cloud apps

Many organizations have begun to adopt a cloud-first mentality, which means Slack is probably one of several cloud applications in use. Bitglass’ cross-application user behavior analytics identifies risky activities, not only within an app, but across applications. So you know when Joe is logging in to Slack and Box at the same time from two different locations.
      • User behavior profiling gives deep insights into suspicious user activities within Slack and across cloud applications.
      • Customizable alerts and response actions allow you to see and take immediate action on risky transactions.
