What is Cloud app policy?
Cloud app policy as the name suggests are policies and procedures adopted by enterprises to ensure that the usage of cloud applications by employees are in compliance with overall corporate security plans as well as regulatory requirements.
The cloud app policies of companies can be minimally restricted to highly restrictive. Many companies have started looking for something in between these two extremes, seeking more fine-grained control of their cloud app policies. This level of control typically permits use of a wide range of cloud apps but with specific restrictions placed on how and when certain activities can be performed by employees. These types of cloud app policies are designed to protect intellectual property and sensitive data from data loss or leakage from cloud apps without needing to block the usage of apps completely.
