Introducing automated classification

Shield lets you classify content your way, both manually and automatically. We're excited to announce our powerful, native capability that identifies PII, intellectual property, and custom terms within files, and automatically classifies them based on your policies — helping you protect your data at scale.

Prevent data leaks and drive productivity

Placing controls close to your content helps prevent leaks in real time, while powering a frictionless end-user experience. Configure access policies within minutes to keep your data secure while letting people do their mission-critical work.

Empower your security team with intelligent detection

Using machine learning, Shield brings you timely, accurate alerts on insider threats, account compromise, and malware attacks. Quickly evaluate alerts in Shield, or send them to your existing tools for further analysis.

Integrate with your cloud security portfolio


Shield works with the best-of-breed security tools you already have in place. Alerts containing more insights than ever before can be integrated with your SIEM and CASB for a unified view. That way, Shield's native controls and alerts serve as a valuable complement to your overall security portfolio.
