What do you like best?

Microsoft Cloud App Security is an efficient option to have a protection service for the applications you use when working, that is, they can be controlled and audited to avoid risks of filtering or loss of information. You can use its different tools to guarantee this, since it allows you to explore in depth applications, users, and files that could be harmful or suspicious. You can also double your security by creating personalized policies and alerts, which will help you maintain control of traffic in the cloud. Also as an administrator you can restrict access or give limited and specific access to your users, which is excellent to protect to protect your confidential information, especially since you can block file downloads or simply give them greater protection with encryption, if any user Try to download them without authorization, not only will it not allow it, but notifications of any suspicious behavior will be generated immediately. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The error may occur that the policies are automatically disabled and stop working, you usually get a notification that it was disabled, but it is not usually very specific for the reason why this happens, so you should investigate on your own the reason for because this happened. Sometimes it only happens because something you put in the directive as a reference was removed, and it is relatively easy to fix, but it may not be for this, and you are in the process of total ignorance, because the software does not give you more information. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is recommended to take advantage of and correctly configure the policies, in order to efficiently monitor applications, it is also the best option to receive alerts from applications that are dangerous or harmful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have integrated Microsoft Cloud App Security to provide employees with an established cooperation platform in the cloud, which has allowed us to have options, be able to integrate the best work productivity tools and find ways to increase work efficiency. In addition to that with the security controls along with the administrator policies, the organization is protected. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It is a tool that allows you to adapt to the needs of the organization. Access to the application is done by browsing online. There is no need to install the program. Among its functions is the visualization and protection of data efficiently and effectively against emails, pages or harmful software that can infect our equipment.

Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Although to use it you must connect online. It has a cost. Therefore, updates and changes will depend on the functions of the program and to be able to use it must be purchased. And our workplace sometimes has no resources. And it puts us at risk and disadvantage if we do not use this digital tool.

Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Microsoft Cloud App is recommended because it is a tool that provides management solutions in data protection. It is highly secure and reliable because one of its functions of use is to detect frauds or suspicious programs that can damage files or usurp information or other activities in your cloud environment. Another of its functions is to automatically analyze the applications in the cloud used by the organization and create reports immediately. It is a program that for me is a bit complex. However, it offers a guide for its use.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Among the benefits is the protection of access control applications effectively and also the activities that are carried out within the applications in the cloud. From the workplace, you can consult all the information that is stored in the cloud as a user. Microsoft Cloud App security helps control the use of your organization's data and prevents data loss. It protects in a guaranteed way before a possible attack of harmful programs that could generate serious problems to certain files. This program detects them immediately and prevents files from being encrypted. Another benefit is that you can connect with other applications. For example. Dropbox, Azure, Office 365, Box etc.

What do you like best?

The dashboard is very easy to navigate by providing clear views of activities + files monitored, as well as any activity flagged as suspicious. Linking other apps like Salesforce and Microsoft Office 365 is also very intuitive. The ability to create custom policies from scratch is also useful, in that our business is constantly changing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The risk assessments used from tracking firewalls and proxies sometimes seem to flag things as suspicious and or concerning, when they are mostly harmless. We are working to try and refine what factors are considered in the risk assessment metrics. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would look to receive on-site training from a Microsoft professional. In the beginning, it can be somewhat difficult to understand what is being flagged in each application. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our main purpose is to track all our SAS apps and make sure that they are secure. We use Microsoft Cloud to mitigate risk across a number of platforms/services. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like how this product gives me insight into shadow IT, and other security risks that I could be missing out on. I also like how I'm able to decide who has access to the platform and who doesn't. That type of control makes it easier to trust the product. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The issue with security apps like this one is that I never know what I 'm missing. It's tough for me to know what issues i'm not protecting myself against. Microsoft is a strong sales org so they tell me that everything is fine, but when my data gets hacked or taken advantage of, who am i to blame? I also wish the alerts for hacking were stronger and more attention grabbing, but i realize that would be an entire product update. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend it. Microsoft is a great name. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm protecting my company and my files from hackers that are looking to take advantage of my sensitive information. I'm able to decide who is getting access to my platform and from what device, and that type of peace of mind is hard to come by. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

This application has taught me the foundations of business systems. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I do not like how long the set up process takes. I think an app like this should be instant to set up. However, once set up it is much easier to use. This application has taught me the foundations of business systems. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend users of this application to get a fundamental grasp on the set up procedures.

What do you like best?

I have been able to make good use of the dashboard, providing my top alerts on issues and things that need to be addressed. The interface is great and is very helpful to the analysts. This makes everything very transparent to all areas of the business. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

the length of time the logs and data are retained should be longer that 180days. That would be very helpful. We have had to put workarounds in place to back up data to long time storage. Retrieval of that data has proved to be cumbersome. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I needed to work more closely with Microsoft and the vendor to understand all aspects of the implementation. We ran into some issues that stemmed from misunderstandings of what needed to be done. A few tweaks here and there needed to be executed to ensure all was running properly. Microsoft helped identify and resolve these issues. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It comes free with an E5 license in Office365 makes this a good starter platform.

The platform is pretty limited but seems to be improving over time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

No real time scan / auto scan option.

The API limitations of the Azure API make this tool too slow to be usable.

Hopefully MS is working to correct this. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Do a proof of concept with multiple vendors. Not all CASB are the same and just because one was right for one company, doesnt mean they are right for your company. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Improve compliance & risk management. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
