- Geo-Location Analytics: Visualizes global access patterns and analyzes activity to identify impossible cross-region access attempts indicative of compromised accounts.
- Privileged User Analytics: Identifies excessive user permissions, zombie administrator accounts, inappropriate access to data and unwarranted escalation of privileges and user provisioning.
- Sensitive Data Analytics:Provides a detailed and continuous view of all sensitive data (such as PII, PHI or corporate IP) stored in cloud applications, where the data is located, who is accessing it, and DLP violations based on the enterprise’s policies.
- Security Policy Analytics: Discovers the current settings for all security configurations and suggests modifications to improve security based on industry best practices.
- On-Demand Data Scanning: Enables on-demand data scanning so that security teams can examine existing content in fields and attachments to identify sensitive data subject to compliance requirements or security policies.
