Slack for Teams

As of February 24, 2021, Cisco Cloudlock for Slack will only support Slack Enterprise plans. This is due to the deprecation of various APIs by Slack, which is required for Cloudlock to provide CASB functionalities for Slack Free, Slack Standard, and Slack Plus plans.  As per Slack official guidance, we continue to support DLP offerings to Enterprise plans only.
