SaaS vendors are responsible for ensuring the security of their cloud environments, but each customer is responsible for securing their data in those clouds. The best way to secure assets such as business-critical data on the cloud is an account-level backup and recovery tool.
The economic landscape requires due diligence when it comes to enterprise level SaaS spending. Shadow IT hides wasteful spending, and organizations must manage costs associated with bulky and hidden SaaS platforms.
The time is now for business leaders to implement zero-trust protocols to address cloud misconfigurations beyond the identity layer and into the SaaS app ecosystem, as doing so has become critical for organizations to be able to maintain a good security posture. Zero Trust Data Access (ZTDA) does just that.
Security teams need to be vigilant - both on what SaaS services employees are connecting to, and whether those platforms are safe and remains safe for use in the organization.
Our reliance on SaaS across every facet of contemporary business operations has extended accessibility to nearly all enterprise resources. It is critical to properly acknowledge this shift to mitigate the full extent of risk this represents.
IT security teams need to develop a SaaS management strategy to mitigate and address their shadow applications to mitigate the security and compliance risks shadow IT poses to their organizations.
