WithSecure – the global privacy and cybersecurity provider formally known as F-Secure – says it is now adding more protection to Microsoft OneDrive on its WithSecure Elements cloud security platform.
If you’re unfamiliar with Elements, it is a cloud security suite that organizations can leverage to allow a securely managed service provider (WithSecure) to handle security. It allows a custom collection of modules based on the needs of the customer, such as endpoint detection, protection, and response.
Another tool is collaboration protection, which WithSecure says has become popular amongst its customers. In fact, a recent survey from the company shows that businesses put the security of collaboration apps based in the cloud as one of the five most important security priorities.
Cloud collaboration apps include giants such as Salesforce, Slack, and Microsoft services through Microsoft 365 (Teams and OneDrive among them).
To help build further security, WithSecure Elements now offers Microsoft OneDrive for Business Protection through the Collaboration Protection module. This component already provides advanced protection for Microsoft SharePoint Online and Exchange Online.
For OneDrive, the module uses real-time threat intelligence analysis to scan files and content as it is uploaded to OneDrive.
“The adoption of cloud-based collaboration tools is now in full swing and is quickly becoming essential for many companies. However, the cloud is a very different environment and many organizations have yet to adjust,” WithSecure Head of Products Leszek Tasiemski says in an announcement “The popularity and lack of security around these tools make them an attractive attack vector for adversaries, which is a significant concern for companies.”
Any customer with a subscription for WithSecure Elements Collaboration Protection get Microsoft OneDrive for Business Protection automatically.
