Cloud Assessments illustrate the number of sanctioned vs. unsanctioned cloud apps that are being utilized by employees. With the explosive growth of the cloud and SAAS-based applications, most companies face the challenge of controlling access due to the lack insight into which services are being used by employees.
Many organizations underestimate the number of cloud apps their employees are utilizing by roughly 90 percent. A cloud assessment will provide a thorough report which outlines cloud application usage for the organization. A cloud risk assessment will provide a complete view of which cloud applications employees are using and apply a risk metric to better defend your organization.
Equipped with this vital information, organizations are positioned to better define policies, tweak next generation firewall rules and/or implement Data Loss Prevention (DPL) tools to reduce the risk of data exfiltration.
