Best of both worlds

Cisco delivers the flexibility to connect and manage integrations from existing compliance, security, and identity management software.

Cisco has developed key relationships with leading Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASB), compliance, security, and identity management vendors to enhance Cisco Spark and deliver key enterprise-grade features.

Examples include:

Actiance
Actiance can capture and archive all content from Cisco Spark, including messages and files to comply with retention requirements and enable e-discovery. Actiance also provides integration with other archival systems.

Cisco CloudLock
Cisco CloudLock monitors all Cisco Spark spaces that contain members internal to the organization for data loss prevention. When a violation is detected, CloudLock can take these Cisco Spark specific actions:

  • Notify end user of policy violation via 1-to-1 bot message
  • Notify Cisco Spark admin of policy violation via 1-to-1 bot message
  • Delete violating content (file or message) from a Cisco Spark space.

GlobalRelay
GlobalRelay works with Cisco Advanced Services ensuring that Cisco Spark content can be sent to GlobalRelay for archiving. Supports both on-premises and cloud instances of GlobalRelay.

Okta
Okta and Cisco's deep integration brings Okta's identity management platform to the Cisco Spark platform. With Okta, end-users can seamlessly authenticate into Cisco Spark to collaborate and share information. For CIOs and IT leaders, the new SCIM integration provides a simplified and secure way to provision and de-provision Cisco Spark users for enterprises. IT administrators can also use such Okta features as universal directory (UD) and mobile device management (MDM) to manage users, as well as multi-factor authentication to provide an additional layer of security to the authentication process.

Ping Identity
Ping Identity has created an integration between both Ping Identity's PingOne and PingFederate and the Cisco Spark platform. To secure against the number one attack vector of weak and stolen passwords, this integration provides an enterprise authentication experience. Additionally, Ping Identity's cloud-delivered, multi-factor authentication (MFA) increases security even further without sacrificing user experience with an easy, one touch swipe on a mobile phone. Finally, for IT executives the Ping Identity/Cisco Spark integration provides a simple and highly secure way to deploy and manage Cisco Spark across the enterprise.

Skyhigh Networks
Skyhigh Networks applies policies to Cisco Spark content, including messages and files. Skyhigh can alert upon policy violations and take remediation actions such as deleting the violating content. Policies can be based on AD groups.
