CISCO’s Cloudlock is an API-based Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) solution. Cloudlock secures customer identities, data, and apps. Cloudlock apparently is part of Cisco’s larger Umbrella security. Umbrella is a very popular and user friendly platform which encompasses strong security, ease of deployment and good automation, caveat that compliance and visibility could be better. Cisco Cloudlock came out on top for raw security, not a not the best selling point for a security product. The cloud-native CASB product makes use of APIs to manage risks.
User security Cloudlock uses advanced machine learning algorithms to detect anomalies based on multiple factors. It also identifies activities outside allowed list countries and spots actions that seem to take place at impossible speeds across distances.
Data security Cloudlock's data loss prevention (DLP) technology continuously monitors cloud environments to detect and secure sensitive information. It provides countless out-of-the-box policies as well as highly tunable custom policies.
