OpenText announces release of Webroot BrightCloud® Cloud Service Intelligence

OpenText has announced the release of Webroot BrightCloud® Cloud Service Intelligence, a new offering which enables Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASB) and other security and technology vendors to enforce data-centric security policies and prevent unwanted interactions with cloud services and associated applications.

The service provides additional intelligence data on which cloud applications pose security or compliance risks, as well as identifies user actions within these applications, allowing partners to better address risks as well as identify and stop shadow IT behavior in order to better control data.

With limited market offerings available for CASBs to efficiently and strategically manage cloud access and applications, having access not only to this caliber of threat intelligence, but cloud-specific threat intelligence, presents a compelling competitive advantage for partner organizations.
