Key Capabilities for SaaS Security

As more SaaS platforms have been adopted into the enterprise, SaaS ecosystems have grown complex. That means maintaining appropriate SaaS security is becoming more challenging. A robust SaaS security program covers a business’s entire SaaS footprint and provides security teams with greater visibility into threats. 

Many organizations don’t extend their SaaS security program beyond configuration management, but that puts SaaS data at risk. While configuration and posture management are essential for SaaS security, they are just some of the many capabilities necessary for a comprehensive SaaS security program.

AppOmni delivers the components needed for a successful SaaS security program.

Configuration Management & Posture Management

AppOmni offers a broad security scope for SaaS applications and data access management to help you understand how business-critical SaaS applications are being used across your organization. Expertise and remediation advice are available directly in AppOmni, guiding your security team on actions to remediate misconfigurations, incorrect permissions, and exposures, wherever they may be. AppOmni delivers that advice by level of criticality, enabling your team to focus on the highest risk issues first.

3rd Party Application Management

Gaining visibility into the 3rd party applications that are connected to your SaaS environment should be a top priority. AppOmni enables you to get an inventory of connected apps, see which end users are utilizing them, and understand the level of data access each app has.

AppOmni research shows that 3rd party risk is more prevalent than most CISOs realize.

  • Businesses have an average of 42 connected apps
  • Over half of the apps haven’t been used in over 6 months but retain access to SaaS data
  • Nearly half were installed by end users not security or IT teams

Continuous Monitoring & Threat Detection

SaaS platforms are complex and dynamic by nature, which means periodic audits and pentests are insufficient to maintain the security of your SaaS ecosystem. Better protect your SaaS data by embracing the automation provided by the AppOmni platform, which continuously monitors SaaS policy settings and permissions and delivers alerts when changes are made. AppOmni ensures that logs from all key applications are collected, normalized, and enriched to provide alerts on events of interest — and integrated into your SIEM tools.

Automated Workflow

Network Security teams are often inundated with requests and stretched thin. As a result, teams may not have a structured process to identify, detect, protect against, respond to, and recover from security threats. AppOmni offers automated workflows designed to establish and enforce consistent data access policies across all SaaS applications. That alleviates some of the burden on your security team and helps them stay vigilant about possible areas of exposure.
