Timlin Enterprises to implement NC Protect to provide real-time access control and data protection of intellectual property and sensitive information for internal and third party Teams users

BOSTON – April 23, 2020 – Nucleus Cyber, the intelligent data-centric security company for the modern workplace, today announced it was selected by a New York-based biopharmaceutical company to provide real-time access control and data protection of intellectual property and sensitive information shared between internal and third party users in Microsoft Teams (Teams). Timlin Enterprises, a Nucleus Cyber partner and Microsoft Gold CSP, will work with the customer to deploy the NC Protect solution.

The New York-based biopharmaceutical selected NC Protect to help protect its highly valuable intellectual property (IP), FDA regulated clinical trials of medicines in development, as well as other sensitive company information collaborated on using Microsoft Teams (Teams). NC Protect will enable the customer to secure collaboration in Teams to prevent internal and third party users from accessing unauthorized content, control how sensitive content is shared and who it can be shared with, block the unauthorized sharing of content and alert administrators to the attempt. The solution will also be used to protect documents with dynamic watermarks and enforce viewing of high value and regulated information using a secure viewer. NC Protect will also be used to block Teams chat conversations in real-time that do not comply with policies for sharing of IP and sensitive or regulated information such as personally identifiable information (PII) and protected healthcare information (PHI).

Ryan Thomas, CEO of Timlin Enterprises stated, “With over 100 Office 365, Teams and SharePoint projects completed in the last year, we understand the critical role that data security and compliance play across the enterprise. The deployment of NC Protect will allow our customer to fully identify, protect and audit all of their business critical IP and sensitive information including clinical trials, as well as provide the correct level of access and sharing by internal users and third parties collaborating on potential treatments.”

NC Protect for Microsoft Teams is content and context aware to automatically secure and/or block access and sharing of unstructured data on-premises, in the cloud and in hybrid environments. It provides conditional access control ensuring information is protected in real-time across all collaboration scenarios. NC Protect 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 Teams, SharePoint, other Office 365 content applications, Yammer and file shares.

“Partners like Timlin can now offer their valued customers a way to proactively protect against insider threats from malicious employees to simple human error across all enterprise collaboration channels, including Teams, with NC Protect,” Kurt Mueffelmann, CEO of Nucleus Cyber, stated. “Our proactive approach ensures that security and compliance are at the center of modern workplace collaboration – in the office or when working remotely.”

NC Protect’s highly granular context and content aware controls allow customers to safeguard business critical data and IP in midsize to large enterprises, as well as industries with large amounts of regulated and sensitive data, including government, defense, utilities, financial services, healthcare and pharmaceuticals.
