The pervasiveness of shadow IT is a result of the tremendous value these SaaS applications are providing to end users. Because of data exposure and threat insertion risks, users can’t run unchecked. A sledgehammer approach of simply blocking applications is not the right approach. Disrupting business critical applications while blocking risky applications will have significant business impact since users have become accustomed to using these applications to do their daily jobs. This has never been truer than with Office 365. This puts a spotlight on the existing challenge of securing SaaS applications that can no longer be ignored.
Join us for a live webinar where you will also learn how to enable safe usage of SaaS applications, including Office 365, with complete visibility and granular enforcement to prevent data risk and compliance violations. You will also hear from Unit 42, the Palo Alto Networks threat research team, on how malware is now adapting to leverage SaaS applications.
The webinar will show you how to:
- Satisfy compliance requirements while still maintaining the benefits of SaaS based application services.
- Protect against new insertion and distribution points for malware.
- Protect corporate data from malicious and inadvertent exposure after it has left the traditional corporate perimeter.
- Gain visibility and granular, context-based control of SaaS applications.
The challenges of SaaS applications are already here whether they are enabled by IT or end users themselves. Find out how to take back control and safely enable their use.
