More than just a CASB
CloudGuard SaaS uses artificial intelligence to detect malicious content on SaaS email accounts and block sophisticated phishing techniques that bypass traditional CASB and email security solutions.
SaaS Security is One Click Away
CloudGuard SaaS is a cloud service. Its API architecture enables seamless integration with SaaS applications and instant threat visibility.
Customers of a North American financial services company received emails from the company’s chief financial officer directing them to use a new bank account for money transfers. As it turns out, the emails were sent by hackers who stole the CFO’s Office365 account credentials, accessed it, and sent the emails in his name. More than $2 million was transferred to foreign accounts before the exploit was discovered.
Organizations seeking to optimize business operations and reduce costs increasingly move to cloud applications and software-as-a-service (SaaS) products.
SAAS SECURITY CHALLENGES
While SaaS applications help increase business agility, they also challenge traditional security approaches. SaaS apps are:
- Exposed: SaaS applications merely require an internet connection to be accessed from any device, location, and user
- Provided as an external service: SaaS applications cannot embed existing security controls and provide risk visibility as needed
- Equipped with minimal built-in security: Frequently, SaaS applications only have minimal default security that allows unrestricted file sharing and malware delivery
ENTERPRISES ARE TARGETED WHEN USING SAAS
Security breaches on SaaS are increasingly common and get media coverage. To answer this, most security solutions offer data leakage protection and application control. However, 90% of SaaS data breaches occur from targeted attacks, with 50% of the breaches happening through account takeovers of employee SaaS accounts.* Hacking into SaaS applications and taking over employee SaaS accounts has become a preferred method to steal company data, money, and interfere with business processes. Securing data effectively in SaaS applications is a cybersecurity must-have.
