Defender for Cloud Apps delivers new in-browser protection capabilities via Microsoft Edge

Defender for Cloud Apps delivers new in-browser protection capabilities via Microsoft Edge

In today's work environment, it is crucial to facilitate seamless work from any device or location, while simultaneously protecting organizational data and resources. However, the growing reliance on web browsers for enterprise tasks introduces new security challenges that require careful attention to data and apps security.

To address these needs effectively, Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps delivers new in-browser protection capabilities via Microsoft Edge that help security teams manage user interaction with in-app data based on their risk profile.

Thanks to the in-browser protection feature, users can enjoy a fast and seamless experience when using cloud apps, and there are no latency or app compatibility issues, providing more flexibility when protecting data across SaaS apps.

Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps allows admins to create session policies based on various risks associated with a user, such as when they log in from an unmanaged device. These policies create granular policies that prevent downloads, uploads, copying, cutting, or printing actions during a session.

Once the admin creates session policies, these sessions are applied directly to the browser, and users can identify it through an additional "lock" icon in the browser address bar, indicating protection by Microsoft Defender for Cloud App.

With this new integration, a balance between protection and productivity in today's dynamic workplace is achieved, ensuring a safer and latency-free experience for end-users, as well as enabling security admins to effortlessly manage in-app access to SaaS applications and control user interactions with in-app data based on individual risk profiles.

If interested, you can learn more about session policies and the in-browser protection feature in Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps on their website.
