Security For Your
Slack Workspace

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.

  • Slack Security

Protect Your Users

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.

  • Slack Security

Malicious File Detection

Every file is sandboxed before downloading. When zero-day malware or ransomware is discovered, Avanan quarantines the file, performs threat extraction, and alerts the user, who has the option to request file restoration.

The Avanan Slackbot logs the total number of users, files, shares, links, logins, channels, and threat detections.

The anomaly engine monitors all Slack logins, and if suspicious activity is detected, Avanan alerts the Slack administrator to prevent the spread of malicious files and more.
