Discover and Control Use of Shadow IT

Shadow IT introduces hidden risks and costs. Typical large enterprises have hundreds or even thousands of cloud apps in use – most of which are shadow services adopted and used with zero IT security oversight. Employees or entire departments may be using cloud services that are expensive, redundant, too risky for business use, or do not meet compliance requirements.

CloudSOC Audit discovers Shadow IT in use and provides risk analysis with intelligence on thousands of cloud services. With Audit you can monitor cloud app usage through intuitive dashboards and easily generate Shadow IT risk assessments on demand – a key requirement for most compliance regulations.

  • Extensive cloud app intelligence
  • Greater visibility over Shadow IT
  • Shadow IT with Secure Web Gateway
