SaaS setups can pose a significant security risk to businesses


Many companies could be putting their data at risk if they don’t properly secure their SaaS environments, according to new research from DoControl.

THE report found that large enterprises (with 1,001 to 6,696 employees) and medium-sized enterprises (with 50 to 1,000 employees) hosted 5.5 million and 1.5 million devices, respectively, in SaaS applications.

Another significant figure is the number of activities per week, estimated at 2,775,000 for large companies and 55,750,000 for medium-sized companies. The problem arises when employees recklessly take actions that compromise company information.

Manually tracking sensitive assets has long been a nightmare for companies, and according to DoControl, it’s become an even bigger task. The reason for this is that, according to the company’s research, nearly two-thirds of companies (61%) have employees who have shared their personal e-mails on company-owned devices.

In addition, there are decisions made by the business itself that can put data at risk. Sharing information with third-party companies does not guarantee that they will comply with the same data protection measures that the company has in place.

Business managers can also be guilty of not maintaining privileges in online collaboration software that some employees no longer need. This can be exacerbated by files that continue to be shared with former employees who no longer work for the company.

DoControl explains, “According to Gartner, by 2025, 60 percent of organizations will use cybersecurity risk as a significant determining factor when conducting transactions and business engagements with third parties.”.

But it’s clear that companies need to start tidying up their SaaS environments sooner rather than later to ensure they gain and maintain as much control as possible. TechRadar.
