NC Protect from Nucleus Cyber provides dynamic, granular data security and governance that leverages and enhances an organization’s existing infrastructure investments. NC Protect is both content and context aware to automatically find, classify and secure unstructured data on-premises, in the cloud and in hybrid environments. The platform protects against insider threats including data loss, sensitive data misuse, accidental sharing and unauthorized file access enabling enterprises to fully take advantage of their collaboration applications.

The platform is fully integrated with Microsoft Office 365, SharePoint, Teams, Yammer, Dropbox, and file shares. It works natively with Microsoft products and enhances security to restrict the use of Microsoft functionality, including elements of the SharePoint user interface, methods for viewing files, and encryption or restriction of attachments sent through Exchange Email. It requires no additional client-side application, reducing IT overhead and the risks involved in implementing new cloud services or BYOD policies.

The 2020 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards honor individuals, products and companies that demonstrate excellence, innovation and leadership in information security.
