Office 365 usage has tripled in the enterprise in the last 9 months alone, making it the number one area of interest for IT Security teams today. Many enterprises, including AstraZeneca, General Mills, Viacom, and Western Union leverage Skyhigh’s Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) to enforce security and compliance policies across the suite of applications in O365.

Adding a bit of complexity to the challenge is the fact that O365 applications are available in a variety of access modes. They offer a mobile app for services like OneDrive, a desktop application for services like Exchange Online, and the traditional browser based access for services like SharePoint Online.

Given the distributed nature of today’s workplace, with workers accessing their corporate cloud services from a variety of locations (on-premises and off-premises), from a variety of devices (managed and unmanaged), and from a variety of access modes (mobile app, desktop sync client, and browser application) enterprises must be able to enforce security and compliance controls consistently across all of their users, applications, access modes, and devices.

In order to accomplish this without the friction of agents on employee devices Skyhigh leverages your existing security infrastructure, and integrates with your identify providers, firewalls, proxies, and mobile device management systems.
