(1110R) Enabling healthy and efficient cloud adoption Users are aggressively adopting cloud applications to improve collaboration and productivity. This activity should be enabled and encouraged due to the many benefits, but organizations need the ability to monitor cloud app usage on an ongoing basis and compare vendors and apps to provide guidance. Armed with a list of sanctioned and unsanctioned apps, leaders can intelligently manage the volume of cloud apps in use and help enable end users that are trying to make decisions about new apps. Key features • Simplified integration with WSA: There is an automated log field selection process to facilitate the connection between WSA and Cisco Cloudlock App Discovery. • Cloud app security index: A repository of over 11,500 cloud apps and 1 million URLs which includes detailed information on vendors and apps. This enables accurate app identification and provides additional vendor, category, and app details to help with sanctioning decisions. • Cloud app risk profile: Custom research from the Cisco Cloudlock CyberLab team and 3rd party app risk evaluation metrics are used to create a broad set of risk attributes. The attributes are grouped to assess the business, compliance, and usage risk and then rolled up to generate an overall score. • Dashboard/app detail reports: The dashboard provides a set of data which enables Security, IT, and business leaders to see key updates, app status and trend information. Drill down app reports provide deeper information on the vendor, app, and usage trends.
