BCSEC3007: Understanding Content Scanning


Please note: Content Scanning is a feature available to our Pro, Enterprise, and Secure platform customers. If you have a Standard or Manage Only version of BetterCloud, you will not be able to perform content scanning at this time.

From internal data loss prevention strategies and protecting intellectual property to external audits and compliance standards, ensuring your organization is living up to Data Loss Prevention (DLP) standards in no joke. Thankfully, you can use BetterCloud's Content Scanning in tandem with your security and compliance needs. BetterCloud's platform provides you three types of Content Scanning abilities:

  • Targeted Content Scans: Lets you select up to 500 files to review
  • File Audits: Lets you scan all know files in your organization (or by refining on specific files you'd like to hunt for)
  • Go Forward Scans: Let’s you ensure that you remain in compliance with your defined security policies

These scans can be performed across your SaaS apps, including Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, Slack, and (coming soon) Office 365.
