Microsoft Teams –
Great for Collaboration, Problematic for Data Security
There is little doubt that growth of Microsoft Teams is changing how people collaborate with colleagues and external parties. However, perimeter security and breach detection technologies are no match for the speed and simplicity at which users can create Teams and start sharing data. And user managed collaboration tools like Teams make it problematic to keep track of the nature of data being shared and ensure that sharing and usage policies are being followed. This presents a new challenge to ensure intellectual property and sensitive data is properly protected from accidental sharing, oversharing, misuse or theft.
Get Data-Centric Protection for All Your Teams Content
It’s time to modernize with NC Protect’s data-centric approach to protecting your sensitive collaboration content. NC Protect dynamically adjusts access and protection of both chat and file content within Microsoft Teams to ensure that your organization’s sensitive information is being used and shared according to your business regulations and policies.
NC Protect provides conditional access control without the overhead of complex user permissions and poorly applied at-rest encryption, ensuring that your information is protected at the right time across all collaboration scenarios. It can restrict usage and even hide data based on multiple attributes including data classification, user location, device and access rights, and automatically apply encryption when the data leaves the safety of your collaboration systems.
Identify Sensitive Data Everywhere
Do you know where your sensitive data is being created, shared and stored across your collaboration tools? Are you sure that your information security policies are being consistently applied?
NC Protect locates and classifies sensitive and confidential data (PII, IP, HIPAA, HR, etc.) using a single set of rules across Microsoft Teams, Yammer, SharePoint and Exchange.
Prevent Data Loss, Misuse and Human Error
NC Protect complements the powerful collaborative features in Microsoft Teams by enabling users to monitor data at rest and restrict usage rights for content to protect against data loss and misuse.
Data access and encryption can be dynamically adjusted based on real-time comparison of the chat, file and user context against conditional access and protection policies. Ensure your users share and use data according to your regulations and policies across all devices and locations.
Enable Private Chats and Sharing in Teams
With NC Protect, IT administrators can reclaim control of sensitive content within social collaboration tools. Viewing or sharing sensitive data via chat or files can be restricted to defined users within a Team eliminating the need to create multiple teams or risking data leaks.
Maintain the Microsoft Teams collaboration experience across all Team Owners, Members and Guests without breaking organizational or regulatory governance and compliance policies.
Real Time, Contextual Access Control to Prevent Accidental Sharing & Misuse
NC Protect augments native app security using the unique identity data builds over time.
Using attributes such as chat content, file name, authorship and date stamps, as well as more transient context like IP location, device or time of day, NC Protect applies conditional access and usage rights to support all business rules to enable every collaboration scenario.
NC Protect takes your data security policies and enforces them for each and every user and device, completely transparent to the end user.
Conditional Access and Security
NC Protect leverages dynamic access, usage denial rules and a secure viewer to ensure that only approved users can access and share your business content. Keep control of your sensitive information on-premises, in hybrid environments or in the cloud. Apply conditional protection rules centrally or locally, ensuring compliance, while enabling content owners to fine tune rules.
Augment Security with Dynamic Watermarks & More
NC Protect works natively with Microsoft collaboration and security products to augment native features such as methods for viewing files, applying dynamic watermarks and encryption or restriction of attachments sent through Exchange Email.
Encrypt When Required
Microsoft or proprietary encryption can be automatically applied when needed, and read/write privileges are transparently configured, allowing users to concentrate on getting their work done rather than the policies governing collaboration.
Protection Travels with the Data
NC Protect leverages industry leading technologies to maintain protection and usage rights even after your data leaves your collaboration platform. Access to content can be expired and unauthorized sharing can be prevented.
Simple to Deploy and Use
NC Protect requires no additional client-side application simplifying deployment and reducing the time that your content is at risk.
