Better Together: Cisco and CloudLock Integration to Combat Shadow IT

Michael Gleason

I spend my days (and nights) explaining how the strengths of the cloud - high availability, scalability, and interoperability - can help us overcome what is often considered its greatest weakness: security.

Since the closing of the CloudLock acquisition by Cisco, the CloudLock and Cisco teams have joined forces to accelerate our vision to deliver the most comprehensive cloud security solution.

We have been fixated on tapping into the endless integration potential to deliver meaningful value to customers immediately. To that end, we could not be more excited to share the first of many integrations to come. But, first, let’s start with a current state snapshot…

The Explosion of Apps

Shadow IT applications create risk in multiple ways, potentially leading to compromised user identities, data loss through unauthorized channels, and the introduction of malware into the environment.

As revealed in the CloudLock Cybersecurity Report, “The Explosion of Apps: 27% are Risky”, most organizations have hundreds unique third-party cloud apps enabled through corporate credentials.

While existing security infrastructure provides partial visibility into application usage, this raw information lacks the context necessary to efficiently evaluate the risk associated with cloud app usage.

You May Already Have the Necessary Ingredients

Most organizations have an impressive roster of security technologies, but they often resemble disparate alphabet soup rather than a finely-tuned and integrated program.

For security teams that need to address today’s complex cyberthreats, the CloudLock® Cybersecurity Orchestrator™ is an API-driven solution that aggregates data feeds across your existing IT infrastructure to enrich security intelligence and harmonize data protection across on-premises and cloud environments.

By integrating the visibility of Next-Generation Firewalls and Secure Web Gateways with CloudLock security intelligence, security teams unify cloud app and shadow IT visibility across on-premises cloud usage and off-network access via OAuth.

Introducing: CloudLock and Cisco NGFW Integration

With the CloudLock App Discovery Report, security professionals are empowered with a comprehensive report of the cloud apps being used by employees as well as the associated risk and security implications.

CloudLock complements raw log data from Cisco ASA series and Firepower Next-Generation Firewalls to provide additional security intelligence with insights from over 160,000 (now 200,000!) discovered cloud apps, including the risk level of each application, the CloudLock Community Trust Rating™ – the peer driven analysis of cloud app risk – and more, fueled by the CloudLock CyberLab.
