Cloud Access Control with RBI (Limited Availability)

Cloud Access Control with RBI allows frictionless onboarding of longtail SaaS applications and prevents data exfiltration by implementing CAP policies on an unmanaged device. Subsequently, CAP policies block activities on an unmanaged device, such as uploads, downloads, clipboard copy, clipboard paste, and printing. Cloud applications can be accessed directly from managed devices without any restrictions. For details, see Cloud Access Controls with RBI.

Skyhigh CASB for Airtable (Limited Availability)

SharePoint Controls based on Privacy Settings (Limited Availability)

Skyhigh CASB provides control over sensitive content posted by users in SharePoint sites. Skyhigh CASB for SharePoint now allows security admins to define the DLP policy rule based on SharePoint site privacy settings (public or private). This feature allows admins to restrict sensitive data from being uploaded to SharePoint sites based on their privacy settings. For details, see SharePoint Controls based on Privacy Settings.


Improved Azure AD Sync (Limited Availability)

Skyhigh CASB's periodic sync jobs with Azure AD have been improved, allowing tenants with large Office 365 and Azure AD user groups to complete user ingestion smoothly. This architectural improvement reduces the time to sync the user groups' change delta.

Skyhigh Data Protection

Unified EDM for SSE and SWG Web Apps

Exact Data Match (EDM) Enhanced fingerprints allows Skyhigh Security Service Edge users to protect sensitive user database records in a row and column format typically extracted from a database in CSV format, build structured indexes of that data on-premises, and use DLP policies to prevent sensitive information from leaving the organization.

For details, see About Exact Data Match (EDM) Fingerprints.


OCR and EDM (Enhanced) for Skyhigh CASB
