Safeguard your cloud services with Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps.

Moving to the Cloud offers many benefits – from cutting costs to enabling a remote workforce.

But it also presents complicated security challenges.

Today’s malicious actors know how to outsmart unprotected cloud apps to get into your network and exfiltrate sensitive company data.
