Customers and partners are excited about this latest development:
Jens Uhle, Solution Architect & Global Project Manager, Unified Communications, Wacker Chemie AG
"The new Webex Extended Security Pack gives us the protection we need to confidently enable cross-company interactions and collaboration with our customers, partners and suppliers. The Cloudlock CASB functionality is very easy to deploy and it provides critical data loss prevention for our internal and external spaces. This allowed us to deliver a great user experience on an open, modern collaboration platform while still protecting important files and content. We are very excited about the upcoming anti-malware capabilities that will be included in the bundle that will protect us from Trojans, viruses, and ransomware - even when files are introduced by external users."
Alex Bennett, Senior VP Intelligent Workplace GTM, NTT
"Our clients require that security is front of mind in any solution that we deliver, so we are excited to hear about the new Webex Extended Security Pack. The ability to provide our clients with controls to ensure there is no unintentional data loss with their collaboration tools is critical. The Pack provides best-of-breed CASB and anti-malware that gives IT and employees the assurance they need to be protected from malicious attacks."
