McAfee has today announced that its MVISION Cloud now supports encryption enhancements in Microsoft Teams, including encrypted webhooks and encrypted payloads.
The cybersecurity company says this lets employees use Teams as a collaboration platform, participate in conversations and calls and upload and share documents while ensuring customer data remains secure with encryption.
McAfee’s update comes just over a month after Microsoft announced an overhaul to its Teams platform.
The enhancements in Teams and the announcement of this McAfee update means MVISION Cloud remains one of the only Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASB) that is Certified for Microsoft Teams, according to McAfee.
Microsoft has seen an unprecedented spike in Teams usage with more than 44 million daily users — a figure that has grown by 12 million in just seven days.
Those users generate over 900 million meeting and calling minutes on Teams each day as employees work from home. Employers must not only educate their employees on digital security best practices but also give them the tools to combat online threats that may stem from remote work.
However, it is critical to have the right guardrails in place to protect from accidental data leakage or misuse.
McAfee MVISION Cloud provides these capabilities for Microsoft Teams, assuring that only the right data is shared with the appropriate internal and external parties.
This helps protect corporate data and intellectual property, and meet governance, risk and compliance policies thus enabling effective and safe collaboration.
