Securing Your Company from the SaaS Tsunami

August 29th, 2016   |     |  security and compliance, smarter identity

As companies move to the cloud to compete more effectively, they’re using an increasing number of SaaS applications. Unfortunately, these apps come with hidden risks and vulnerabilities when IT is not involved in securing and managing them.

What is the SaaS Tsunami?

Ask yourself: How many SaaS apps are in use at my company?

Do you think it’s 15? 30? 100?

According to Gartner, the typical company uses a staggering 600 to 1000 SaaS apps — and IT knows about fewer than 10% of them. Even worse, tens of thousands of SaaS applications are considered high-risk because they can compromise sensitive data, leading to data breaches, violations of industry regulations, and worse.

Gartner calls this shadow IT problem the “SaaS Tsunami”. It grows daily as employees sign up for new SaaS apps. All it takes is a browser and a credit card.
