The average company now uses 354 SaaS applications with enterprises averaging a whopping 364! Each of these apps introduces vulnerabilities across a company’s tech silo and companies have attempted to reduce exposure by implementing access management solutions like SSO (single sign-on). However, 80% of employees admit to using SaaS at work without prior approval, leaving the door open for unscrupulous attackers. The only defense has been completely blocking SaaS installs and in turn, limiting productivity. Push Security reimagines the corporate SaaS implementation by guiding monitoring employee usage and guiding them in real-time on how to minimize vulnerabilities for things like discouraging the use of a weak password or encouraging them to use multifactor authentication. By reducing the complexity of security management, organizations and employees can leverage the ever-increasing repository of SaaS apps without creating unnecessary risks.
