Nucleus Cyber Expands Microsoft Platform Support for NC Protect, formerly Security Sheriff

Nucleus Cyber, the AI-driven data security company for the intelligent workplace, announced it has expanded its Microsoft platform support and rebranded the recently acquired the Security Sheriff platform to NC Protect and extended the Microsoft platforms supported. The NC Protect v6.0 release now supports SharePoint Modern Experience, Office 365 Groups and Microsoft Teams in on-premises, cloud and hybrid environments with AI-driven data security to guard against insider breaches, sensitive data misuse and unauthorized file access.

"We are excited to deliver new Microsoft platform support and data protection capabilities for customers less than two months after acquiring the platform from Cyxtera," said Kurt Mueffelmann, CEO of Nucleus Cyber. "The new NC Protect data security platform offers more secure collaboration across a wide range of Microsoft products including classic and modern SharePoint, Office 365 and their social tools. NC Protect empowers enterprises to better secure the high volume of content created and shared in the intelligent workplace with content and context aware file level security."

The intelligent workplace has changed the way enterprises store and share information, but the resulting lower costs and improved collaboration has come with a price. With an insider element present in 50 percent of breaches (McKinsley), inside threats, including the misuse of sensitive information, corporate espionage, malicious data theft and human error, expose enterprises to substantial risk.

The AI-driven NC Protect solution empowers enterprises to automatically find, classify and secure unstructured data in their digital environment and determine how this information is accessed with granular, content and context aware file level security.

NC Protect v6.0 (formerly Security Sheriff) now includes new capabilities to support collaboration in an expanded range of Microsoft products:

  • Support for Protection of O365 Groups - O365 Groups are created by standard users to allow them to collaborate and share information and documents. This process does not involve the scrutiny of an administrator: therefore, normal business rules and permissions can be inconsistently applied. NC Protect now allows administrators to apply the required business rules and protection policies to all O365 Groups.
  • Support for File Collaboration in Microsoft Teams - Teams is one of Microsoft's fastest adopted applications, making it incredibly easy for users to share and collaborate with both internal and external parties. Although instant messaging and other collaboration tools are prevalent use cases for Teams, one of the key capabilities is collaborating and sharing files within these unstructured groups of users. With NC Protect, administrators can now define the business rules and protection policies for files within Teams to provide the same protection mechanisms available for files in SharePoint document libraries.
  • Support for the SharePoint Modern Experience - NC Protect now supports SharePoint Modern Experience, in addition to Classic SharePoint, to ensure that the same data protections are available no matter which experience an enterprise is using.
  • Improved deployment and upgrade experience - SharePoint information architecture changes have promoted users to reconsider how solutions are deployed and updated across a SharePoint environment. Administrators now have the ability to globally update NC Protect versions across all site collections, greatly reducing post administration tasks associated with a product upgrade.
The new NC Protect platform is now available to customers to safeguard data and IP in midsize to large enterprises, as well as industries with large amounts of regulated and highly sensitive data, including financial services, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, utilities and government.
