Extend McAfee Prevent DLP (Data Loss Prevention) policies to cover Unified Communication and Collaboration platforms such as Skype for Business (On-premise or online) and Microsoft teams. SphereShield is a certified McAfee integration as part of the Security Innovation Alliance program.

Companies who have invested in McAfee DLP Prevent as a best in class Data Loss Prevention solution, are protecting sensitive data, preventing any data leakage and meeting their regulations. However, most neglect to protect the data going through Unified Communication channels, such as Skype for Business or Microsoft Teams. As usage of Unified Communication platform extends outside the network boundaries, communication with external parties via federation meetings occurs. This poses serious security and compliance risks due to the ease of communication between parties.

SphereShield’s DLP filter solution leverages McAfee’s existing capabilities, sending all communications passing through the server for inspection by the DLP engine.
