AppOmni and KPMG in Canada Team Up to Strengthen Joint Customers’ SaaS Security Posture

SAN FRANCISCO, CA — January 23, 2024 — AppOmni and KPMG in Canada today announced their strategic collaboration to offer managed SaaS security services to their joint clients. This relationship will create a streamlined path for KPMG to deploy AppOmni’s comprehensive SaaS security solution to Canada-based clients that helps ensure operational continuity and cyber resilience for their respective organizations.

Cyber incidents exploited through end-user SaaS misconfigurations and compromised SaaS-to-SaaS connections are a daily occurrence in enterprises. As SaaS adoption grows at an unprecedented rate, the complexity and variance in security settings present challenges in ensuring proper configuration, which can lead to security gaps and data exposure.

“KPMG in Canada’s deep commitment to securing cloud services makes them a well-suited collaborator for us,” said Eric Snyder, VP of Global Channels and Alliances, AppOmni. “SaaS has become the de facto operating model for modern enterprises, and it’s critical to know who has access to what. By offering our pioneering SaaS security solution as a managed service through KPMG in Canada, we’re providing support to customers wanting to secure their business-critical applications, workflows, and sensitive data.”

“With organizations using an average of 130 SaaS applications, SaaS is the largest market segment of public cloud services, and is fast-becoming the chief custodian of business-critical data,” said Cedric Thibault, Partner, Cybersecurity and Cloud Security at KPMG in Canada. “Our customers continually express concerns about their lack of visibility over SaaS application controls and inability to remediate SaaS security misconfigurations. That’s why we’re thrilled to team up with the SSPM solution provider AppOmni to help KPMG clients secure their entire SaaS environment, both on an ongoing and ad hoc basis with our Cloud Risk Monitoring service.”

This collaboration will deliver a set of SaaS security services underpinned by the AppOmni SaaS Security Posture Management Platform, inclusive of:

  • SaaS risk assessments and remediation guidance
  • SaaS application security program design and development
  • Detection of malicious user behavior across all apps
  • Identity security governance across all apps
  • Compliance reporting across key compliance frameworks
  • Ongoing monitoring through KPMG’s Cloud Risk Monitoring managed services
