BetterCloud includes activity-based alerts for boosting G Suite security:- BetterCloud, which offers a SaaS operations management platform, is launching real-time, activity-based security alerts for G Suite.
The new product will help enterprise IT teams watch for malicious or authorized activity, like unauthorized file downloads or logins from an unusual location. This will help a lot in terms of security.
BetterCloud CEO David Politis said in a statement: “Every second of every minute, people are taking actions within SaaS applications such as downloading files, forwarding emails, installing external applications and more,” He added: “Identifying and assessing anomalous behavior in these circumstances can be highly challenging — and lacking the ability to respond quickly can result in data slipping through the cracks.”
With the new product, IT admins can set security policies and alerts for certain user activities.
For instance, if an employee tries to log in from an unusual location, BetterCloud can automatically clear any active sessions across applications and devices. This will prompt the user to log back into SSO and ensure they haven’t been hacked.
BetterCloud also offers activity-based alerts for Okta, Dropbox and other SaaS applications. The product expansion is significant, given that BetterCloud was built on Google Cloud Platform in 2011 for organizations using Google applications.
The IT and security teams can set up policies that revoke sharing settings on the document as required.
Parameters for monitoring and alerting are customizable and can be set based on everything from the level of data sensitivity to the individuals and groups that own the data.
BetterCloud also monitors users’ login and access behavior in G suite. This means a sign in from an unusual location can automatically trigger an action to remediate potential security threats associated with these accounts.
