Protect Your Team Members

Collaboration platforms are less secure than email, which adds one more layer of challenges for stretched IT security teams.

Employees commonly let their guards down when using collaboration and messaging platforms. They assume messages, links, and attachments are trusted because these platforms are viewed as “internal-use only,” but that’s not always the case.

It’s not unusual for organizations to invite partners, customers, and third parties to connect to their collaboration platforms—which increases the chances of phishing attacks, credential theft, account takeover, and VIP impersonation.

The IRONSCALES™ powerfully simple security platform adds a robust layer of security for Microsoft Teams® to help keep organizations safe.

  • Automatically scans and blocks malicious or suspicious links and attachments shared in Microsoft Teams
  • Comprehensive incident management and reporting via IRONSCALES dashboard, mobile app, and email
  • Built for use with Office 365 for seamless integration and configuration in just two clicks

The Explosion of Collaboration

There has been a massive shift to hybrid work environments—especially as organizations adjusted to ever changing COVID-19 restrictions—making collaboration platforms like Microsoft Teams a preferred channel for internal communications. Over 500,000 organizations use Microsoft Teams as their default collaboration platform with over 145 million daily active users, of which 95 million users were added in 2020.

This shift from traditional email communication has impacted companies’ security posture as users inherently trust the messages, links, and files they receive in collaboration platforms. And of course, this change in user behavior has not gone unnoticed, attackers have identified this attack vector and are constantly exploring new and creative ways to exploit this attack surface.

Real-time Scanning and Removal of Suspicious Links and Attachments

Links and attachments are immediately inspected and if determined to be risky or malicious, they are blocked and replaced with alerts.

With the shift to remote and hybrid working, communication is moving beyond just email to include collaboration tools such as Microsoft Teams and Slack with users outside the organization. These have the potential to be used by attackers for phishing and malware distribution. i
