As more and more organizations embrace a Bring Your Own Device Policy, the risk of data breaches grows exponentially. Compromised information can lead to HIPAA, FISMA, and PCI-DSS compliance infractions and hefty fines. IT departments bear most of this burden, and given the continued growth in data breaches, current solutions in the market clearly are not winning the war against advanced attacks. Organizations need new types of cloud security to manage this new reality, but new solutions must also offer an intuitive user experience with native access. OPSWAT's Cloud Access Control helps organizations that are becoming cloud-enabled with applications such as Office 365, Salesforce, and Dropbox.
- The BYOD user connects to the acces gateway which determines whether the user has the Cloud Access Control client installed. If not, the user is prompted to download and installs a lightweight client
- The access gateway, having autheticated the user, awaits the result of the endpoint posture check from Cloud Access Control. Posture check can include the following values "In compliance, Not in compliance, and Unknown endpoint (no client installed)."
- The results of the posture check are used by the access gateway to determine whether the user is granted access
