The Challenge

When Austin Community College migrated its 6,500 staff and faculty to G Suite, the IT team soon realized they needed to implement the same security controls as they had for on-premise data. They identified the key requirements for a cloud security solution:

  1. keeping data secured
  2. ongoing compliance with regulations

Cloudlock helps us find Social Security numbers and other Personally Identifiable Information (PII) that are placed in the domain. This is an essential compliance application for us.

The Solution

With Cisco Cloudlock's Compliance Scan, ACC finds sensitive information and ensures it is properly shared for continued compliance with regulations, like FERPA, for data stored in Google Drive.


Automated notifications to data owners on policy violations allows Austin Community College to engage end users in the security process and achieve higher levels of security, while delegating the burden of security tasks.
