Microsoft Cloud App Security:

Enterprise-grade security for your cloud apps

Whether or not you're in the cloud, your employees are. Bring the security of your on-premises systems to your cloud applications—both approved and unapproved—for deeper visibility, comprehensive controls, and enhanced protection against cloud security issues.


App Discovery

Discover all your cloud apps in your network, gain visibility into Shadow IT and assess risk--no agents required.

Data Control

Shape your cloud environment with granular controls and use out-of-the-box or custom policies for data sharing and data loss prevention.

Threat Protection

Identify high-risk-usage and cloud security issues, detect abnormal user behavior and prevent threats.

How Cloud App Security is different

Visibility and control—no agents required

Discovery tools collect information from firewalls and proxies to know which cloud apps are in use—identifying over 13,000 apps—to assess risk. No agents required.

Deep Office 365 integration

Through deep integration, Cloud App Security provides advanced security management capabilities for Office 365 apps.

Comprehensive controls for sanctioned apps

Approving apps isn't enough to deal with cloud security issues. You need to maintain control over them. From data sharing to data loss prevention, set policies and enforce them right away on your cloud apps—whether from Microsoft or third parties.

Protection enhanced by Microsoft security intelligence

Draw from the vast amount of Microsoft threat intelligence and security research data for anomaly detection and threat prevention that identifies and stops risky behavior right away.

Enterprise-grade integration

Offering a simple deployment and management process, Cloud App Security is scalable, non-intrusive, and integrates with your current solutions—including existing security information and event management systems, identity and access management, single sign-on, and analytical solutions.

Builds on the broader Microsoft security platform

Cloud App Security works together with our current identity and security solutions—including Azure Active Directory, Microsoft Advanced Threat Analytics, and Azure Information Protection. Plus, it’s part of Enterprise Mobility + Security, delivering a holistic, innovative and identity-driven approach to SaaS security.
