Consumer Gmail Block to Eliminate the Roadblock to Data Security

Employees’ easy access to personal email can pose threat to organizations owing to projected malicious data transfers, data theft, intercepting the anticipated data safety and thus creating a data-threatened organizational work-system, wherein, data breaches can be a possibility. Blocking personal Gmail is a step in the direction of protecting any ill-intended, deliberately-harmful data transfers that are done with an intent of dupery. CloudCodes for Business, our CASB solution, provides Personal Gmail Block feature that ensures a heightened cloud security.

CloudCodes Consumer Gmail Block is a feature nested under Access Control / DLP, and is also one of the most adopted and loved feature by CloudCodes clients. Consumer Gmail Block, also referred to as Personal Gmail Block by many, works as a data safety cushion empowering the IT admin to check any malicious data-breach, data theft or data transfer attempts. Multiple CASB solutions including DLP, Access Control, SSO, Shadow IT, Identity Management, etc., are integrated into one single console providing an all-round cloud security to organizations working in such environment, thus enabling them to create a safe work cocoon by increasing visibility to all the activities around their sensitive data on cloud.

Organizations bound by regulations like HIPAA etc., remain apprehensive to migrate to cloud owing to the threat of any data sharing discrepancy of the sensitive information circulated in their premises. The IT admin would always want to prevent users from accessing their personal email accounts other than organizational accounts provided to them. But the challenge being faced is that while working in the cloud environment, users are allowed to use their consumer Gmail without any restriction. CloudCodes Personal Gmail Block reports any such violation of Gmail block policy to the IT admin of the organization. This solution gets implemented without any of the hardware dependencies.

Implementing corporate policies for not using personal Gmail within the office premises could be a costly affair with the use of expensive firewalls, which can be the show-stopper for the SMBs, preventing them from moving to cloud. CloudCodes CASB solution with its Consumer Gmail Block feature provides this extra layer of required data security, thus enabling the organizations to move to cloud without any hint of doubt!

Data breaches will be inevitable if no security measures are adopted, and also, most organizations are rapidly adopting cloud, which is also opening avenues for data-theft. So, in order to avail a secured working environment, it is imperative that organizations adopt certain safety measures, wherein, they guard their confidential data against any such thefts and leaks. A good step in this direction that would largely avert any easy anomalous data transfer is to block access to personal Gmail, which ensures data security to a great extent. Consumer Gmail Block provided by CloudCodes CASB (Cloud Access Security Brokers) solution provides the same.
