“Especially with the significant growth of employees working remotely, Nucleus Cyber’s NC Protect is critically important as it lets users work from anywhere while protecting their data in shared teams,” said James Johnson, managing director, CyberSecurity Breakthrough. “We congratulate the entire team at Nucleus Cyber for winning our ‘Data Security Innovation of the Year’ award and we look forward to continuing innovation well into the next year and beyond.”
NC Protect provides advanced, real-time information protection that increases the value of existing technology investments to secure content including files, chats, and messages – without the complexity or cost of native tools. It allows IT administrators and security owners to manage user access without creating more security groups, sites, folders, or other information silos. It also 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 transient context like IP location, device or time of day, NC Protect applies conditional access and usage rights to support all business rules for any collaboration scenario.
“There are some clear advantages that come with NC Protect that we feel really make it stand out. It not only dynamically controls access to content, it also controls how users can share it, and with whom, across all supported platforms. It offers unique features not found in native apps, such as dynamic watermarks and a secure web viewer to ensure business-critical content can be shared securely internally and with third parties,” said Kurt Mueffelmann, CEO of Nucleus Cyber. “Best of all, it’s completely transparent to the end user for a seamless security and user experience that encourages adoption and reduces Shadow IT.”
