Microsoft Cloud App Security (MCAS)

Identify cyber threats and prevent attacks across your organisation's cloud services with Microsoft Cloud App Security (MCAS).

Moving to the Cloud offers many benefits – from cutting costs to enabling a remote workforce.

But it also presents complicated security challenges.

Without the right protection, your network provides an open door for ransomware, phishing attacks, compromised users, rogue applications, and high-risk usage.

Today’s malicious actors know how to outsmart unprotected cloud apps to get into your network and exfiltrate sensitive company data.

61% of applications have at least one issue of critical or high severity.

Cloud security isn’t a cut and paste job

You know you need to protect your users and confidential data from malicious actors – but it seems like such a big challenge. We get it, it’s complicated, but the longer you put it off, the more vulnerable your data becomes.

Your challenges:

Shadow IT

Your existing set-up doesn’t give you visibility or control over unauthorised app usage.

Data control

There’s nothing stopping your users printing, cutting/copying/pasting, or downloading information.

Application risk

Lack of control means your network’s wide open to security compromises, malware, and phishing attacks.


You don’t – or can’t – monitor file access, modification, sharing, deleting, and uploading.

ThirdSpace's consultants worked closely with our team throughout the process. They have always been very responsive to our needs. They’re flexible and extremely knowledgeable.

Put your head in the secure cloud

Microsoft Cloud App Security (MCAS) gives you a single utility for your security or SOC teams to understand – and manage – the risks associated with activities across your entire organisation.

You’ll benefit from:

Data protection

Conditional access integration lets you redirect a user’s authenticated session through proxy to stop sensitive information from being downloaded, duplicated, or passed on.

Data loss prevention

Built-in data loss prevention (DLP) rules let you automatically encrypt downloads from popular cloud services such as Teams, SharePoint, Salesforce, Jira, Slack, and more.

Full visibility

Ingest your enterprise firewall logs and integrate with Defender for Endpoint to give you full visibility of any unauthorised app usage.

Complete integration

The ability to protect every cloud app within Microsoft 365 and Azure, plus supported cloud vendors (including Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud Platform).

Behavioural analytics

Identify your organisation’s riskiest users – and their potential impact – based on intelligent user and entity behavioural analytics (UEBA).

Up-to-date security

Real-time controls give you the power to roll out added security and threat protection on all access points that touch your organisation’s environment – as and when you need it.
