The growing number of cloud-based SaaS applications that employees are using to conduct their day-to-day business is dramatically expanding their companies’ attack surface. And malicious actors are increasingly infiltrating networks by compromising weak credentials used across various cloud applications.
The initial knee-jerk reaction among security professionals might be to forbid or severely restrict employee access to their favorite SaaS applications. However, the downside to this approach is that it could curtail worker productivity, hurt morale and contribute to the IT/security department’s reputation as the “Department of No.”
As an alternative, companies could instead implement a solution designed to provide security pros with visibility into the full spectrum of SaaS solutions in use within an organization – such that they can be properly secured from sophisticated attacks, rather than banned altogether.
This webinar will reveal how Push Security’s user-centric SaaS security solution empowers companies to give their employees the freedom to install and use the cloud-based services of their choosing. Attendees will learn how this solution enables security professionals to:
• Discover what SaaS platforms are in use, and which employees are using them
• Identify risky third-party integrations
• Let Push automatically nudge employees to improve SaaS security through actions such as: removing dormant or unused apps, enrolling in MFA and creating stronger, unique passwords.
