As announced few months back, Microsoft today announced the general availability of Microsoft Cloud App Security. This new security product is based on the technology it acquired from Adallom. It helps customers take advantage of the benefits of cloud applications while maintaining control through improved visibility of activity and increased protection over critical company data.
