Every employee is on a mission to find the next SaaS application that will make their job easier. With nothing more than a credit card and an expense report, anyone within the organization can sign-up for a new application in minutes.
The problem is that employees are signing-up for SaaS apps without the knowledge or permission of their IT administrator. According to Gartner and Cisco, IT pros only know about 7% of the apps in use. Meaning, within any given organization, there are hundreds of unsecured SaaS apps, each a potential entry point for hackers to access your corporate data.
As the enterprise applications market expands, the number of unmanaged SaaS apps is going to continue to grow, making it increasingly more difficult for companies to contain the security and compliance risks. With this in mind, Al Sargent, senior director at OneLogin, provides ways companies can manage the risks brought on by a SaaS Tsunami.
