Empower Digital Communication Without Sacrificing Security
Cloud applications have changed how we collaborate and communicate. Slack is one of the most widely-used business communication platforms in the world — operating at the heart of innovation and collaboration for organizations across all geographies and industries. The app is used across personal, managed and unmanaged devices as employees check in on projects from home and on the go.
But this creates issues of visibility and control. With people using devices and networks you don’t control, it’s nearly impossible to understand how documents, proprietary information and other sensitive company data is being handled.
Slack is arguably one of the biggest catalysts for employee productivity. Users can integrate other apps with it to increase their own productivity and more easily collaborate on any project from one hub. But this deep integration into the roots of your infrastructure can create additional security challenges.
Part of what makes Slack so useful is how easily employees can work from it across mobile and desktop. This puts highly sensitive data at risk of being downloaded to a personal or unmanaged device, which not only threatens your organization’s compliance standing, but could expose that data to attacks that come through personal channels. You also need to be able to manage who has access to certain channels in Slack if, for example, you have an executive-only channel or one exclusively for roadmap research.
