In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

- Lookout CASB is integrated with the Lookout Security Platform that continuously assesses telemetry from endpoints, users, apps and data. This enables organizations with full visibility into what’s happening across their remote-first environments as well as policy enforcement with varying degrees of granularity. Whether it’s mobile malware or risky apps, data leakage or insider threats, organizations can efficiently detect and respond, ensuring they remain compliant with corporate policies and regulations.

- Lookout Cloud Security combines risk assessment and access technologies within a single platform to streamline operations to reduce costs and security gaps.

Brief Overview

While cloud applications have empowered us to stay productive from anywhere, they’ve also increased the risk that data is exposed to. The Lookout Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) solution enables organizations to detect and respond to threats, dynamically control access, as well as full visibility into users, endpoints, apps, and data.

Lookout CASB sets itself apart from its competitors with a data-centric approach that empowers productivity. With advanced data protection — such as data loss prevention (DLP) with optical character recognition (OCR) and enterprise digital rights management (E-DRM) — and user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) capabilities built in, the solution enables organizations to safeguard data against intentional insider threats, accidental data leakage, compromised accounts and other advanced attacks without getting in the way of productivity.

In addition to data and user, Lookout CASB has native antivirus/antimalware capabilities to stop ransomware or other malicious content from entering the cloud.

Lookout CASB is an extension of a broader Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) platform that includes endpoint security and Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA). By leveraging telemetry from endpoints, users, networks and data, Lookout enforces intelligent Zero-Trust access that takes into account the fluctuating risk levels of endpoints and users as well as the sensitivity level of the data. Rather than provide binary yes-no access, Lookout CASB restricts access dynamically and with varying degrees of granularity.

Lookout CASB has deep integration with all major software-as-a-service (SaaS) apps, including Microsoft 365, Google Workspace, SAP SuccessFactors and Slack. It also connects seamlessly with any cloud apps.
