NUDGE SECURITY –IN THE AGE OF SasS / CLOUD ENVIRONMENT
In the changing digital workplace, which the world has finally become, distributed by is very nature, every employee can be his CIO. He has the power to adopt a new Cloud and SaaS technologies, whenever and wherever they require. The benefits are all well-known; the marked difference in productivity and the capability to innovate in this new digital enterprise. So far so good. But that cannot be the complete story. The challenges of cyber security are too well known by now. The new digital enterprise has upended traditional approaches to IT security and governance.
How do we meet cyber security requirements in a highly distributed workplace without adding security products that create overheads for both the security and the functional teams? The solution to this knotty problem comes from what is called as Nudge Security. Nudge Security is the “world’s first and only solution to address SaaS security and governance at scale by working with employees – not against them.” It is at variance with the legacy systems which in the standard format block employees’ access to unsanctioned SaaS applications. This creates an unnecessary stress in the system and comes in way of seamless functioning besides other issues. It is not in tune with the current day functional architecture.
What does nudge security is the natural question. The needs of business are the primary concern of any enterprise. Nudge Security helps IT and security leaders to adapt and align to this primary concern. “The platform orchestrates SaaS *administration without sacrificing visibility, centralised governance or control over the organization’s cloud and SaaS security posture.” Nudge Security discovers all SaaS accounts ever created by anyone in your organization within minutes. All it requires is a single point of integration and that being a read-only access to your Microsoft 365 or Google Workspace email provider.
As email is used to drive user engagement, it becomes the perfect event log to capture new account sign ups and other security related activities. Using this Nudge Security builds and updates your inventory of SaaS accounts, users, and resources, “without you ever having to tell it which apps to look for.” This platform not only shows you who had the access to what, but also provides other relevant information like how the access was granted and by which mode. Nudge Security provides comprehensive coverage as it discovers and monitors your entire attack surface at a dynamic and real time level.
THE CRITICAL IMPORTANCE OF NUDGE SECURITY NEEDS TO THE APPRECIATED IN THE CLOUD AND SaaS AGE.
Have a nice evening.
