Migrations to the Cloud are moving faster than ever before.
Software as a Service (SaaS) didn’t seem ubiquitous before the pandemic, it definitely does now. Businesses have greatly accelerated their investments in a cloud-first strategy to cut upfront IT costs and support remote workforces.
In fact, 70% of organizations using cloud services today plan to further increase their cloud investments in the wake of the pandemic.
SaaS is becoming business-critical in the enterprise – but traditional security measures don’t fully protect SaaS applications and the data they contain. And that means businesses may be at greater risk of a breach.
In this guide, we’ll examine the unique security challenges associated with SaaS as well as the limitations of both traditional security approaches and native solutions from SaaS providers. We’ll also discuss the need for a new category of products to manage SaaS since it’s now part of the critical IT infrastructure: SaaS Security Management (SSM).
