Cloud App Security enhances Office 365 with advanced threat protection and data protection compliance and controls. The solution extends Office 365 built-in security with document exploit detection and sandbox malware analysis to detect zero-day malware and malicious code hidden in PDF or Office documents. Additionally, it improves visibility into compliance with data loss prevention. Cloud App Security also protects against threats trying to migrate to OneDrive or SharePoint Online from mobile workers or trusted partners. It integrates directly with Office 365 using APIs without the need to install software or re-route email traffic, while preserving the Office 365 customer experience.
