Any cloud application used within your organisation without your knowledge or approval is Shadow IT.
It is a problem that has grown exponentially in recent years; it is estimated that 40% of all IT spending is now outside the IT department.
Unauthorised use of cloud services poses risks to your organisation’s security and regulatory compliance – so it’s important that your Shadow IT assessment is the first step towards managing these risks.
As people become increasingly mobile, collaborate more freely and shift more of their data to the cloud, organisations need security that governs usage and protects data across your IT infrastructure.
Do your IT teams struggle with legacy security products that fail to comply with many modern working practices, particularly post GDPR?
Security and maintaining compliance are critical for organisations. Ensuring visibility is key for cloud users, no matter what cloud architecture your organisation adopts public, private or hybrid.
- Discovery – We can provide visibility of sanctioned and unsanctioned cloud IaaS, PaaS and SaaS usage within an organisation.
- Analysis – We analyse the collected data against compliance and breach of corporate IT policies, such as data sharing, security, sovereignty and leakage to ensure industry compliance.
- Compliance – Enables IT to regain control and governance against new IT policies. This ensures future compliance – as sanctioned applications of today may not be sanctioned applications of tomorrow.
How we do things
We perform big data analytics on details including user, group, location, device, service, destination, activity, and content in real-time. This gives you the ability to control your infrastructure and apply essential governance that helps prevent the loss of sensitive data.
