The leading SaaS Security Posture Management (SSPM) provider, Adaptive Shield, recently introduced new tools for identifying and monitoring external apps that are linked to the main SaaS stack. The risk that SaaS-to-SaaS sometimes referred to as third-party app access, poses is being reduced by Adaptive Shield through its new functionality. Unauthorized applications that have access to an organization’s data can be identified quickly and efficiently using the new feature.
“As SaaS app dependency grows, so too does our comfort level in using these apps — this is why many grant access without considering the possible consequences. As a result, third-party app access has become the new executable file. Now, with these new capabilities, whether employees have connected 50 to 5000 apps, Adaptive Shield equips security professionals with the solution to regain control over their SaaS Security,” stated Maor Bin, co-founder and CEO of Adaptive Shield.
In a recent announcement, Adaptive Shield claimed to be the first and only SSPM solution to offer as many out-of-the-box connectors with more than 100 SaaS apps. These new 3rd party discovery capabilities inside the Shadow IT sector are driven by their in-depth knowledge and expertise of the vast array of application characteristics, hubs, and connected apps.
The security team can now gauge the extent of access to sensitive data across the organization’s stack based on the access scopes sought by these apps, authorized users, and cross-referencing. The security team also obtains increased reporting tools for efficient and precise risk assessments that will lead to practical actions.
