Cyber security leader Symantec on Wednesday announced new enhancements to its Data Loss Prevention (DLP) technology to protect information in Office 365.

With Symantec DLP, data is protected whether at rest or in transit — on-premises or in the Cloud — and everywhere it flows through a single management console, the company said in a statement.

“As enterprises migrate to Office 365 and other Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications, they risk a huge potential of data loss, which is made even more complex in the face of increasing data regulations such as GDPR,” said Nico Popp, Senior Vice President of Information Protection, Symantec.

Monitoring and protecting data in the Cloud generation is a complex task, and EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other similar privacy regulations have further raised the stakes on data security, privacy and compliance.

Enterprises are rapidly adopting SaaS applications, including Office 365, that require data to continuously move between endpoints, Cloud and third parties such as partners, vendors or contractors, said Symantec.

Cybersecurity giant Symantec Corp on Wednesday introduced a new solution based on threat isolation technology which blocks advanced email attacks on end user devices.

Named “Email Threat Isolation”, the solution helps protect users against spear phishing, credential theft, account takeover and ransomware attacks, the company said in a statement.

The email security solution with integrated threat isolation technology is designed to protect customers from the kind of sophisticated email attacks that have become more prevalent in the Cloud generation.

“Despite significant efforts by our industry to detect and block email-borne threats, messaging remains the primary vector for malware and scams within the enterprise,” said Greg Clark, Symantec CEO.

“This revolutionary technology helps enterprises to quickly and easily isolate all malicious email content — both internal and external — to substantially reduce inherent risks within messaging applications,” Clark said.

The technology works by creating a secure remote execution environment between users and malicious content.

It sends web traffic from suspicious links to this remote environment, which confines all malicious activity, and only sends a safe visual representation of the content down to the user.

In addition, this solution can render such sites in read-only mode which prevents unsuspecting employees from disclosing sensitive information such as corporate credentials, according to Symantec.
