The Cisco Cloudlock Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) Advantage for Educational Institutions Universities and colleges are under constant pressure to reduce costs and increase efficiencies for their IT infrastructure, students, faculty, and staff. Adopting cloud application technologies introduces such benefits, but also introduces cybersecurity and data privacy concerns. Higher education institutions must pay special attention to regulated data, such as FERPA protected data, Payment Card Industry (PCI), personally identifiable information (PII) and protected health information (PHI), as well as other sensitive information in the form of research data (e.g. ITAR) or intellectual property (IP). Cisco Cloudlock is the Cloud Security Platform that helps institutions protect their data in the cloud while enforcing regulatory, operational, and security compliance easily and effectively. Higher education institutions use Cisco Cloudlock to reduce risk, achieve compliance, manage threats and increase staff and student productivity in the cloud. Cisco Cloudlock orchestrates existing security investments, including class-leading proxies and firewalls, to provide a coordinated, best-of-breed cybersecurity solution across on- premises and cloud environments. Five Key Components to Cisco Cloudlock CASB Threat Protection Cisco Cloudlock defends against account compromises with cross-platform User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) for SaaS, IaaS, PaaS, and IDaaS. Cisco Cloudlock uses advanced machine learning to detect anomalies in account usage, in addition to identifying activities outside of whitelisted countries and actions across distances in an impossible amount of time. Application Discovery & Control The Cisco Cloudlock Apps Firewall discovers and controls malicious cloud apps connected to your corporate environment, and provides the world's largest crowd-sourced security solution to identify individual app risk, using our Community Trust Rating.

Integrations & Orchestrations For security teams that need to combat complex cyberthreats while meeting compliance regulations, the Cisco Cloudlock® Cybersecurity Orchestrator is an API-driven solution that aggregates data feeds across existing IT infrastructure to enrich security intelligence and harmonize data protection across on-premises and cloud environments for unprecedented insight and control. Data Security & Compliance Cisco Cloudlock protects organizations against data breaches in any cloud environment and app through a highly-configurable Cloud Data Loss Prevention (DLP) engine.

"My biggest challenge in security is people. Once you move your data to the cloud, you have no control over it. It costs us about $195 for each social security number that gets exposed. Losing a file with 100,000 social security numbers means some serious money. Cloudlock lets us find those files before the bad guys find them." Joel Rosenblatt Director of Computer and Networks Security at Columbia University
