Forcepoint acquired the Skyfence business from Imperva. Skyfence’s cloud access security broker (CASB) capabilities provide visibility and control over cloud applications approved for use by an organization (e.g., NetSuite, Office 365, Salesforce, Workday), as well as those employees might use without approval (e.g., Dropbox, G Suite and Box). Skyfence helps companies to determine which cloud applications are in use by employees, analyzes content in real-time to prevent malicious or unauthorized leakage and quickly identifies and blocks cyber-attacks.
Integrating Skyfence’s CASB capabilities with Forcepoint’s web security and data loss prevention (DLP) technologies will provide our mutual customers increased visibility, control and security as users interact with data wherever it resides, including within cloud applications. The integration also provides Forcepoint customers greater flexibility in deploying web security via on premise-, hybrid- and cloud-based solutions.
