Organizations are adopting the cloud in a big way. Accounting for 23 percent of IT spend today, cloud computing has accelerated because it allows people to get their jobs done more quickly, easily, and flexibly than traditional computing tools. Cloud apps — the most visible and adopted segment of cloud computing — have proliferated in enterprises and have now reached a tipping point with total SaaS revenue is expected to grow to nearly $100 billion by 2016.
IT is often responsible for some portion of cloud app enablement. In some cases, deployment of a cloud app such as Office 365, Box, Google Apps, and Salesforce is a net-new project for the organization. In others, it’s a migration from a traditional application. Regardless of whether you are in the process of rolling out a cloud app or have already completed the process, securing the sanctioned application is often a critical step. Hundreds of enterprises have selected Netskope over other cloud security companies to help them safely enable their sanctioned cloud apps. With innovative features that span policy and access control, data governance, anomaly detection, forensics, and risk management, Netskope provides best-of-breed technology compared to other cloud security companies in the market.
While IT has ownership or responsibility for some cloud apps, people are now, more than ever, empowered to go outside of IT and deploy their own apps. This means they are procuring, paying for, managing, and using these apps without IT’s involvement. This is a good thing for the business because it lets users get their jobs done more efficiently. But it also means that there is no way for IT to consistently manage and secure all of the cloud apps running across the organization. Netskope helps enterprises find all cloud apps running their environment and assess the risk associated with those apps.
