THE PROBLEM WE SOLVE
Managing Software as a Service (SaaS) applications to reduce spend on software purchased outside of regular IT procurement channels is now a priority for SAM teams. The risk of overspending on this kind of ‘shadow-IT’ is clear – applications are purchased directly by the end user, bypassing the regular software request processes.
Unmanaged SaaS apps also risk information and data security, violating ISO and GDPR compliance. Data leakage is a high-priority consideration for organisations with a large SaaS footprint.
The SaaS365™ Managed Service targets your organisation’s hidden SaaS applications, bringing them under control of central IT.View SaaS365™ Service Brochure
We review the SaaS applications accessed by your company by monitoring SaaS detection tools such as Microsoft Cloud App Security. We apply a cost and security risk rating to each application, tailored to your business. Applications that are approved are onboarded to your official SAM programme, unauthorised SaaS apps are removed.
Controlling SaaS helps your organisation cut the cost of shadow IT and reduces information security risk. You will instil a SaaS discovery and onboarding process that ensures all SaaS purchases, inside and outside of central IT and procurement, are in line with your organisation’s SAM and information security policies.
