With the mass pivot to work-from-anywhere (WFA) business models, collaboration platforms have saved the day. Their feature-rich communication capabilities made it possible for organizations across industries to transition to remote work, without skipping a beat on the communication front.

With its success, certainly the WFA model is here to stay in some form or another, and collaboration use will remain as a de facto standard employee tool. So, it’s essential for organizations to begin managing the potential data loss risks that are also an inherent part of collaboration use.

Like what, exactly?

IMAGE-Blog-Data-Loss-SBThink about all of the ways employees use video, voice, and chat to communicate with collaboration tools. During a meeting with just a handful of attendees, a lot of confidential topics may be discussed, data shared on screen, and files transferred over chat. And all of it bypasses a company’s traditional data protection tools. 

This represents a large blind spot for potential data loss that can lead to downstream risks that negatively impact a company’s reputation and bottom line. The good news is that shoring up this data exposure risk isn’t a complex undertaking.

Theta Lake provides an automated and simple solution to mitigate the depth and breadth of data privacy risks that can occur in collaboration tools:

  • Detects contextual risks across communication types: calls, chats, video meetings
  • Provides comprehensive coverage across content and apps
  • Detects risks based on an app’s sensitivity and the context in which it is used

And provides you with: 

  • Eliminates data loss blind spots - Proactively detects private and sensitive data exposure risks in media-rich collaboration platforms
  • Enables safe adoption of collaboration capabilities - Empowers organizations to adopt collaboration features, without worry
  • Reduces data security monitoring costs - Provides more insights via integration for other security and data privacy tools
