How to cut costs and fight shadow IT with Intello and OneLogin

August 21st, 2018   |     |  product and technology, company news

Today, many organizations are rapidly adopting a wide range of SaaS applications. In fact, according to a recent report by Skyhigh, a typical employee uses 36 software applications every day.

This in itself is great for productivity. The problem, however, is that the adoption of these apps often doesn’t begin with an upper-level decision-maker making a purchase. Rather, employees from every point of the organizational hierarchy sign up and use applications on their own without a second’s thought. This decentralized, bottom-up process often leads to poor IT visibility into app usage and spends. As a result, CIO’s, CISO’s, and CFO’s face:

  • Compliance headaches, such as “Shadow IT” applications
  • Wasted spend on unused applications and inactive licenses

Compounding this issue, teams tasked with managing this ever-growing number of subscriptions and licenses still rely on spreadsheets and other outdated processes. This is where our exciting new integration with OneLogin comes in.

OneLogin and Intello: Better Together

Intello is an intelligent SaaS optimization platform that enables companies to discover and manage their SaaS usage, compliance, and spend. When combined with OneLogin’s Unified Access Management platform, these two platforms offer a robust, cloud-first approach to better managing the lifecycle of SaaS applications.

Integrating OneLogin with Intello gives you complete visibility into the SaaS utilization for all your organization’s connected apps. Now IT can easily view every license, user, and activity by team across their organization’s entire app set.

Here’s a sample of what utilization reporting for a SaaS app looks like.

This not only provides IT teams better visibility into what SaaS apps are being used without their knowledge, but also helps them identify inactive or unneeded licenses. The result is that organizations can recover wasted spend, cancel redundant applications, and manage team technology budgets.

Intello’s integration with OneLogin also helps IT monitor real-time compliance and protect the data privacy of critical cloud applications. Using Intello, an organization can audit high-risk apps, comply with data privacy regulations, and monitor unauthorized applications (Shadow IT).

Together OneLogin and Intello are killing two birds with one stone: Enhanced visibility means getting a handle on Shadow IT while also eliminating unnecessary app spends!
