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

• Offers Unified Access Control and Threat Protection for the Cloud and Web - Allows users to control access to all websites and cloud services and protect against threats that occur within them from a single console.

Brief Overview

Organizations are facing a tremendous shift in their IT architecture as a surge of employees now work from home. They are accelerating business optimization through faster adoption of transformative cloud services, including better protection over data and assets. According to McAfee research, more than 95% of companies today use cloud services and 83 percent store sensitive data in the cloud. Yet only 30% of companies state they can protect data with the same policies across their devices, network and in the cloud. Only 36% report they can enforce data loss prevention (DLP) rules in the cloud at all.
