Software as a Service (SaaS) is one of the fastest growing areas of cloud computing, in some cases predicted to outpace platform and infrastructure services. Despite this accelerating SaaS adoption, most enterprise IT departments don’t know what SaaS apps are running in their environments or how they’re being utilized. Take control of your organization and:
- Discover, manage, optimize and secure all of your SaaS applications
- Gain visibility into unsanctioned SaaS spend
- Stay in compliance with regulations such as GDPR and HIPAA
- Centralize reporting and track illusive users
SaaS is incredibly easy to purchase and spin up for use within a single day that IT teams are often unable to track and maintain visibility on its sprawl within the organization. Regardless of internal policies, SaaS applications are still often procured outside of official channels and not reported effectively.
This rapid spread of unsanctioned SaaS spend is shadow SaaS. Shadow SaaS causes a host of issues within the organization, from increasing risk of exposed data to increased maintenance and support costs.
