SaaS Security is an integrated CASB (Cloud Access Security Broker) solution that helps Security teams like yours meet the challenges of protecting the growing availability of sanctioned and unsanctioned SaaS applications and maintaining compliance consistently in the cloud while stopping threats to sensitive information, users, and resources. SaaS Security options include SaaS Security API (Data Security in the Cloud Management Console), SaaS Security Inline (Discovered Apps in the Cloud Management Console), and SaaS Security Posture Management (SSPM).
Use SaaS Security Inline to discover and manage risks posed by unsanctioned SaaS apps while you rely on SaaS Security API to scan assets in the cloud space for at-rest detection, inspection, and remediation across all user, folder, and file activity within sanctioned SaaS applications. SaaS Security Posture Management (SSPM) helps detect and remediate misconfigured security settings in sanctioned SaaS applications through continuous monitoring.
With all three SaaS Security components, you have an integrated CASB that offers better security outcomes without the complexity of third-party integrations and the overhead and cost of managing the large number of vendors that exist with legacy CASBs.
Review the SaaS Security privacy datasheet for details on the privacy of the data you store in SaaS applications and how SaaS Security handles that data.
