UK Government Bans TikTok on Government Devices: How Do You Keep Your Device Secure?

May 5, 2023

By Lewis Cartwright - Cloud Sales Engineer, Skyhigh Security

The UK recently announced legislation to ban TikTok on government owned corporate devices due to security concerns. While TikTok may be a popular app for personal use, it poses significant risks to corporate data and networks. The ban is intended to protect sensitive information and prevent potential security breaches.

However, simply banning TikTok on corporate devices is not enough. Employees may still attempt to download and use the app, either knowingly or unknowingly, which could compromise company data. This is where Skyhigh Security comes in.

Skyhigh Security offers a comprehensive suite of cloud-native security solutions to help protect corporate devices from the download and use of TikTok. It offers a range of features, including:

  1. Application Control: Skyhigh Security can block access to TikTok on corporate devices, preventing employees from downloading and using the app.
  2. Threat Prevention: Skyhigh Security can detect and prevent threats caused from using TikTok, including malware, phishing attacks, and other forms of cyber threats.
  3. Data Loss Prevention: Skyhigh Security can monitor data on corporate devices and prevent employees from sharing sensitive information via TikTok or other apps.
  4. User and Entity Behavior Analytics: Skyhigh Security can analyze user behavior on corporate devices and detect suspicious activity related to TikTok or other apps.

With advanced features and capabilities, Skyhigh Security can help ensure the security of company data and networks and prevent potential security breaches.
