Movie Line Monday – Using a CASB to block cloud malware such as ransomware hiding in sanctioned apps

July 15, 2016

"I hide in plain sight, same as you.”

-Breaking Bad

In this week’s episode of Movie Line Monday, David Dorosin, Director of Product Marketing at Netskope, talks about how cloud malware such as ransomware is hiding in apps such as Dropbox and Google Apps for Work – which may be sanctioned apps in your organization and difficult to block. He provides examples from strains of cloud ransomware that Netskope has identified including Petya and cuteRansomware and how a cloud access security broker (CASB) can be used to remediate these threats by identifying separate instances of the sanctioned app. Learn how to remediate cloud threats such as ransomware in sanctioned apps while not preventing legitimate use by employees.
