BDO Implements CASB Services with EveryCloud

Accountancy and business advisory firm BDO has implemented Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) services with cloud confidence consultants, EveryCloud.co.uk, deploying the award-winning Netskope platform.

Paul Richards, CEO at EveryCloud, said: “We are delighted to be working with one of the world’s leading accountancy firms and it is extremely positive to see a firm like BDO taking strong proactive measures to protect its most important data. We very much look forward to working together on a range of our CASB services giving BDO the tools to embrace cloud and enable users to work safely with cloud applications in a controlled manner.”

Following a Cloud Risk Assessment EveryCloud were able to discover what cloud apps were being used within the firm and, following this awareness process, be able to make recommendations both from a risk perspective and GDPR compliancy. EveryCloud selected Netskope as the ideal solution for BDO’s needs.

Fraser Dickson, Cyber Security Manager at BDO, said: “The explosive growth of cloud services is a major challenge in the enterprise space. Cloud services are here to stay; they are rapidly becoming the normal way to collaborate, communicate and interact with our friends, colleagues and clients.

“We embrace digital opportunities presented by cloud computing platforms and services to ensure we continue to give clients the very best level of service. However, the need to protect our client data within these platforms is of paramount importance.

“Partnering with EveryCloud and deploying the Netskope platform demonstrates our ongoing commitment to data protection. It assists us in providing safe enablement and reduced risk of data loss, while giving us a better understanding of where data is flowing to and from.”
