Because Slack is invite-only, users assume that their workspace is secure. Yet Slack lacks malware scanning, data filtering, and compliance tools that are basic to enterprise security.
In addition to Slack's native Multi-Factor Authentication, more advanced protection is needed. The Avanan Slackbot controls access to data, quarantines malicious content, and informs users of security events.
Simultaneously, a detailed dashboard updates administrators on general usage in Slack. The Avanan Slackbot logs the total number of users, files, shares, links, logins, channels, and threat detections.
The Avanan solution allows us to have a comprehensive email security solution that integrates seamlessly with our Office 365 environment while "staying enough out of the way" as to not hinder productivity.
