Slack: Security Use Cases - Adaptive Shield

Top Security Use Cases


Slack is an instant messaging platform that enables users to share files, conduct video calls, and share screens. Slack’s platform is used at all levels of the organization, and can include external users for more effective collaboration.

How Adaptive Shield Helps Secure Slack

Slack’s identity and device management tools ensure that only authorized users can access conversations, while its data protection tools encrypt files at rest and in transit. However, those security features don’t protect anything if they are misconfigured.

Adaptive Shield keeps your content secure by continually reviewing configurations and alerting the security team when content is at risk.
