Cisco Cloudlock CASB Lab

Solution Overview
Cisco Cloudlock is a cloud access security broker (CASB) focused on securing users, data and applications in popular software as a service (SaaS) environments like Office365 and Dropbox. In this lab, you'll explore the Cloudlock management portal and apply protection policies for a specified SaaS application.

Cloudlock grants central visibility into events occurring across multiple SaaS providers, including incident reports along with data and application risk scores. Cloudlock also lets administrators apply advanced security policies for protecting users, applications and data in supported SaaS environments.

As a hosted SaaS offering, no software or hardware is required for deployment. The CASB solution communicates with the most popular SaaS applications via API calls through provisioned user accounts on the SaaS platforms for read-only or read-write capabilities. The main benefits of the Cisco Cloudlock toolset include central SaaS visibility, data/user/app security and incident reporting.
