The Cloud: Power and Vulnerability

The cloud is like Spider-Man: amazing and powerful. And with its great power of convenient access, increased collaboration, and connectivity comes the great responsibility to protect all the data stored within.

However, strengths can be vulnerabilities, like over-sharing and unnecessary connections between cloud apps and other systems, providing attackers potentially easy ways to steal data.

Is My Data Safe?

So the question, “Is my data safe?” is one that every app, every company, and every user needs to answer.

To answer that question with an unequivocal “Yes!” we’ve combined our award-winning IAM platform with CloudLock, an industry-leading CASB and cloud cybersecurity platform.

OneLogin + CloudLock

OneLogin and CloudLock together allow you to better manage every single identity that touches corporate data, and protect against threats and cloud malware in real-time.

Bridging our unique API approach with OneLogin’s single sign-on and identity-management platform empowers our joint customers to gain control over suspicious activity and the growing volume of cloud malware.

Analyze Behavior to Protect Against Account Compromises

CloudLock®, the cloud-native CASB, protects against account compromises through cross-platform User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) for SaaS, IaaS, PaaS, and IDaaS environments by flagging unusual use of apps based on advanced machine learning.

For example, behavior based on location can indicate a security risk when only the United States is on the whitelist for countries and a user tries to log into applications in London.

Or when only a time machine could cover the distance between the physical locations of consecutive access requests. If, for example, a user logs into an app in San Francisco, and 30 minutes later tries to log into the app in Boston, CloudLock will flag the second attempt. This will trigger OneLogin to require more authentication in real-time, thus adding another layer of security to the business data.


Keep Users Happy

As a bonus, the enhanced security has minimized impact on the end user! OneLogin provides a robust security solution, but does not hinder users’ abilities to complete their daily tasks. Employees can access all of their apps conveniently, but should suspicious activity be noted on their account, admins can easily enhance their security requirements as necessary. The more convenient the process is for the user, the more likely they’ll be to follow security policies, and the less likely they’ll turn to unsanctioned apps.
