Microsoft Teams – Great for Collaboration and Work from Home, Problematic for Data Security
The explosive adoption of Microsoft Teams to support collaboration and work from home (WFH) is changing how people communicate and exchange information with colleagues and third 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 over Teams files and chats 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.
Dynamic, Granular Information Protection Without the Complexity
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 – internally and with third parties. Apply conditional protection rules centrally or locally, ensuring compliance, while enabling content owners to fine-tune rules.
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 by internal users and third parties can be prevented.
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.
Block Chat Content
NC Protect can block chat messages in real-time that contain sensitive information, personal information (PII, PHI), payment data, inappropriate content or language, enforce information barriers and more in Teams to enforce policies for information security and regulatory compliance in chats.
Reduce Complexity for Faster Results
Get granular security without the complexity of native Microsoft tools to start securing content in hours, not days or weeks. With NC Protect, centrally manage information security using a single rule set to efficiently and dynamically control access to content and how authorized users can share it and with whom, across your suite of Microsoft apps.
MAXIMIZE EXISTING INVESTMENTS
NC Protect is a complementary solution that leverages and adds value to your existing Microsoft investments with a less complicated and more efficient process for automating data governance and protection to secure collaboration. Our integration with the Microsoft suite is vetted by the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association. NC Protect requires no additional client-side application simplifying deployment and reducing the time that your content is at risk.
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.
