Axonius Unveils SaaS Management Solution to Combat Complexity, Cost, and Risk

Axonius | January 20, 2022

Axonius, the leader in cybersecurity asset management, today unveiled Axonius SaaS Management, a new comprehensive solution that helps security, IT, finance, and risk teams control the complexity, cost, and risk of software as a service (SaaS) with a single source of truth into their SaaS application landscape.

As businesses rapidly increase consumption of SaaS applications, they face acute IT, security, and business challenges. The rate of SaaS adoption makes manual approaches to gaining a credible SaaS asset inventory woefully inadequate and exposes extremely difficult visibility challenges into both known and unknown SaaS applications. Compounding these visibility challenges, companies struggle to identify how data flows between apps, manage a myriad of configurations, and close security gaps, as well as track licensing and spend, across hundreds sometimes thousands of SaaS applications.

Axonius SaaS Management lets customers address the operational and financial challenges of SaaS asset management, as well as the security and risk gaps, all via a seamless, nonintrusive deployment that delivers actionable insights from day one. This is the first product delivered by AxoniusX, the company’s innovation-focused business unit that launched in June 2021.

“Over the past few years, we’ve seen tools emerge that address some aspects of SaaS management from either the business side or SaaS security posture management, but these approaches still leave companies with gaps in visibility and siloed information,We’ve built on our unique approach to cybersecurity asset management to deliver the same results for SaaS applications. With our rich history in building and maintaining API integrations with SaaS solutions, Axonius has the expertise and market traction to bring massive value to organizations struggling with the complexity of modern apps and infrastructure.”

Amir Ofek, CEO and co-founder of AxoniusX

Axonius SaaS Management uses adapters (API connections to data sources) and proprietary SaaS discovery tools to create a detailed inventory of all SaaS applications, permissions, and data flows. By connecting to all layers of the SaaS application stack, the solution discovers both the SaaS applications known to and sanctioned by organizations as well as shadow and unmanaged apps. This approach provides comprehensive visibility into all data types and interconnectivity flows, identifies misconfigurations and data security risks, and delivers actionable insights for better IT management and cost optimization.

Axonius SaaS Management integrates with Axonius Cybersecurity Asset Management to provide a comprehensive platform that unifies all digital assets from SaaS apps to devices, user accounts, cloud assets, and more so customers can easily and effectively control complexity across the entire IT environment.

Deloitte Launches Expanded Cloud Security Management Platform

Deloitte | May 10, 2022

Deloitte has enhanced existing features to offer Cloud Security Management (CSM) by Deloitte to assist US executives worried about visibility into the security of their cloud workloads and apps.

We worked to ensure our platform integrates and operates with the major cloud providers' security capabilities so that our clients can more easily scale their cloud security programs and apply security throughout the systems development lifecycle – even when non-standard security requirements are involved. Building upon the strength of the CSM by Deloitte platform, we plan to expand it over time as client demands change and the technology landscape evolves." Vikram Kunchala, Deloitte Risk & Financial Advisory Cyber Cloud leader and principal, Deloitte & Touche LLP Deborah Golden, Deloitte Risk & Financial Advisory Cyber and Strategic Risk leader and principal, Deloitte & Touche LLP said that "While many are eager to accelerate cloud adoption in a secure, resilient and agile manner, that process is not always easy or simple – particularly when digital transformations occur at various stages, multiple cloud environments are involved, and regulatory compliance requires a variety of shared infrastructure situations, inclusive of third-party requirements. Whether organizations want to leverage our advanced technologies or large practice of highly skilled cyber specialists – or both – CSM by Deloitte acts as a potential change agent for organizations that want to operate confidently and securely in the cloud environment even as that threat landscape evolves."
