The SaaS security threat landscape is vast and continues to grow as organizations rely on more and more SaaS apps. While these apps have built-in security features, the ultimate responsibility to continually remediate potential misconfigurations lies with security teams, who often have no visibility into what’s going on in their enterprise SaaS stack. The answer is SaaS Security Posture Management (SSPM), which was named one of the “4 Must-Have Technologies That Made the Gartner Hype Cycle for Cloud Security, 2021.”
Adaptive Shield, a leading SaaS Security Posture Management (SSPM) company, today announced a technical integration with Okta, Inc. (NASDAQ: OKTA), a leading independent identity provider. Together, the companies will provide organizations with an integrated solution to manage SaaS security configurations, improve identity and access management (IAM), and strengthen privileged access governance.
“Businesses continue to recognize the vital role that SaaS apps play in empowering their hybrid workforce and increasing efficiency. But asking security teams to monitor and handle SaaS-related misconfigurations with no automated solution is unrealistic,” said Maor Bin, CEO and Co-Founder of Adaptive Shield. “Through this integration with Okta, we deliver a seamless solution for a fortified SaaS Security and Identity & Access Management.”
Adaptive Shield’s solution provides businesses continuous visibility and remediation for potential risks in the SaaS stack caused by misconfigurations and misappropriated privileges. Through this partnership, the companies provide an integrated solution that manages SaaS security configurations with deep visibility into Identity and Access Management while introducing more stringent governance for users with privileged access to confidential company information.
This new joint offering delivers significant benefits, including. Easy to Manage SaaS Security Configurations Businesses can measure and elevate their SaaS Security posture by automatically assessing critical misconfigurations in their SaaS app’s settings, such as measure security posture by security domain, application, user, and compliance standard for an overall normalized posture score and spot misconfigurations while they occur. Adaptive Shield’s SSPM also enables benchmarking against compliance frameworks such as SOC II, ISO 27001, PCI-DSS and industry best practices (NIST, CIS).
