Risk remains the top concern for organizations adopting software-as-a-service (SaaS) models and this is an issue that is only getting worse. What is needed today is the ability to remove the dependency on human behavior and human error, bringing control back to the security team. Risk in a SaaS environment is largely an identity problem. Specifically, it is a misuse of identity and the privilege access granted to that identity. Before implementing any SaaS platform, you must consider how much access is really being granted in the cloud. More importantly, how is that privilege access being used?
