Digital Guardian extends endpoint DLP to Microsoft Teams, Slack, Skype, and Zoom

Digital Guardian, has released DLP policy packs for top business communications and collaboration applications, Microsoft Teams, Skype, Slack, and Zoom.

The policy packs are free to all Digital Guardian customers and allow greater control over messages, file sharing and user actions in these increasingly popular applications. Using real-time, rule-based actions provided in the policy packs, system administrators can automatically block users from sharing confidential or sensitive files on both corporate and personal collaboration app accounts. Administrators can customise these rules to fit the needs of their organisation. For example, they may permit authorised users to share sensitive files on organisation-approved collaboration applications or simply warn users that they are about to share sensitive information.

“The work-from-anywhere environment has necessitated greater use of collaboration apps putting strain on IT teams to manage the increased risk of data egress,” said Ben Cody, Senior Vice President, Product Management. “With the addition of Digital Guardian’s collaboration policies, we’re enabling busy security analysts to easily regain control of their users’ messaging behaviour and mitigate risky data sharing.”
