Bitglass: Securing Smartsheet from Day One


This post was originally published here by  Will Houcheime.

Smartsheet is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) applicationthat gives employees the ability to assign tasks, manage projects, and track their progress. According to Forbes, it is being used by 72 percent of Fortune 500 companies. However, without advanced cloud security solutions, companies put themselves at risk when working with apps like Smartsheet. Fortunately, cloud access security brokers (CASBs) like Bitglass provide organizations with the complete cybersecurity that they need to safely make use of the cloud.

At Bitglass, we began securing Smartsheet on managed and unmanaged devices long before it became a high-profile tool. When we first encountered it (when we were first asked to secure it  by a customer), it was still a relatively new application. However, thanks to our any-app capabilities, we were able to give said customer granular control over data within the app in just a few short minutes. Shortly thereafter, we began to secure Smartsheet for other customers who were using the app in a variety of industries.

Bitglass can tokenize and encrypt sensitive field-level data within the spreadsheet apps that organizations need to secure. Through contextual access control, administrators can also create policies that govern access through a variety of factors, including geographical location, user group, access method, device type, time of day, and more.

Our mission, as a leader in the CASB space, is to give companies complete visibility over data, robust identity management, as well as comprehensive data and threat protection. These four elements are essential in data security and, at Bitglass, are at the top of our priority list. Whether you are working with Smartsheet, something as common as Office 365, or an application that is new and obscure, Bitglass is here to secure your corporate data and protect you from zero-day threats.
