Organizations are increasingly relying on SaaS applications for managing critical business data and running core processes. These services contain a wealth of intellectual property, workforce identities and access permissions, collaboration and supply chain networks, details on customer opportunities and projects, and proprietary code. Still, organizations seem to lack visibility and security controls necessary to stop unauthorized access to these SaaS applications, govern privileged access, and ensure continual alignment of configuration settings with regulatory standards and internal frameworks.

In this survey by Osterman Research, learn more about the tools, processes, and frameworks security leaders have implemented to address these vulnerabilities. See which capabilities they feel strongly about, which need improvement, and the areas where they entirely lack visibility.

Key takeaways from this survey include:

  • One-third more types of security incidents when manual processes are used
  • Lack of visibility into basic security controls is four times more of a problem with manual processes
  • Few organizations can identify a breach or exposure within minutes
  • Half of organizations can’t control privileged access rights
  • Organizations spend too long reviewing security controls in SaaS apps
  • Investigate SaaS Security Posture Management (SSPM) solutions
