Spin.AI, developer of the SpinOne SaaS security platform for mission-critical SaaS apps, today announced the significant expansion of its platform with new solutions to help enterprises proactively respond to the growing challenge of protecting SaaS data. This includes new capabilities around SaaS security posture management (SSPM), SaaS data leak prevention and data loss protection (SDLP), and SaaS ransomware detection and response (SRDR), as well as new integrations with JIRA and ServiceNow, and backup support for Slack.
"The rising adoption of mission-critical SaaS applications, such as collaboration tools and CRMs, has resulted in a massive amount of new SaaS data that must be safeguarded for compliance, regulatory, and business continuity purposes,” said Dmitry Dontov, CEO and founder of Spin.AI. “The most recent enhancements to the SpinOne platform protect SaaS applications, automate manual processes, and minimize business downtime for organizations that rely on SaaS apps and SaaS data. With SpinOne, teams can reduce the time it takes to identify and remediate SaaS application risks from days and months to minutes and seconds."
SpinOne is an all-in-one, SaaS security platform that protects SaaS data for mission-critical SaaS applications, including Google Workplace, Microsoft 365, Salesforce and now Slack, by delivering full visibility and fast incident response. It eliminates fundamental security and management challenges associated with protecting SaaS data by reducing the risk of data leak and loss, saving time for SecOps teams through automation, reducing downtime and recovery costs from ransomware attacks, and improving compliance. The new platform updates include:
SSPM (SaaS Security Posture Management) – Offers automated security operations to help companies quickly detect and respond to misconfigurations while also providing inventory and assessment of unsanctioned third-party apps and extensions. This reduces security and compliance risks while minimizing manual workloads. SpinOne provides full visibility and control over SaaS apps, Cloud apps, Mobile apps, and browser extensions with OAuth access to collaboration tools. Additionally, SpinOne provides access to a database of 300,000+ apps and extensions assessed by its AI-driven algorithms, reducing risk assessment time from months to seconds.
SaaS DLP (SaaS Data Leak Prevention and Loss Protection) – Mitigates unauthorized access to sensitive SaaS data with configurable access management and advanced reporting. Recovers lost data in a matter of minutes or hours (instead of the typical weeks or months) with integrated, automated SaaS backup and rapid incident response.
SaaS Ransomware Detection and Response – Quickly detects and responds to in-progress ransomware attacks, minimizing downtime from an average of one month to up to 2 hours and preventing further encryption. Provides 24/7 ransomware monitoring and automated incident alerting, and can recover SaaS data in minutes, reducing recovery costs by 90%. This patented technology gives organizations the unique capability to limit files impacted and avoid throttling and API limits on recovery.
JIRA and ServiceNow – Integrates with JIRA and ServiceNow to create alerts and incidents automatically, streamlining security operations processes for enterprise teams by eliminating the need for manual alert creation.
SpinOne for Slack – Helps protect an organization’s Slack channels and messages to meet data protection and compliance requirements, ensure business continuity, and decrease recovery costs. You can easily set up automated 3x a day backup of your Slack data on AWS, GCP, Azure or BYOS.
Enterprises use multiple point products to meet their security requirements, making it challenging to manage various dashboards, invoices, and support channels. Consequently, enterprises are consolidating on platforms that address significant issues in a single solution. This all-in-one SaaS security solution is what SpinOne provides. SpinOne can efficiently substitute existing vendors or complement an enterprise’s existing security stack, reducing overhead and complexity.
“SaaS applications, such as Google Workspace and Microsoft 365 for example, have a significant number of controls and configurations,” said Davit Asatryan, Director of Product at Spin.AI. “One of the biggest challenges administrators face is configuring these applications for the best security posture. This new SpinOne update delivers the visibility needed to better understand configuration issues, set better policies, and respond faster, while aligning with existing regulations such as NIST, ISO, and SOC 2.”
SpinOne protects the SaaS applications enterprises use on a daily basis, reducing the risk of downtime due to business disruptions, ensuring business continuity, and improving compliance.

Veza, the authorization platform for data security, today announced Veza for SaaS Apps, a solution to deliver access security and governance across SaaS applications, including Salesforce, JIRA, Coupa, Netsuite, GitHub, Gitlab, Slack, and Bitbucket. The solution allows customers to automate access reviews, find and fix privilege access violations, trim privilege sprawl, and prevent SaaS misconfigurations. With this solution, Veza secures the attack surface associated with SaaS apps while enabling continuous compliance with frameworks like Sarbanes-Oxley, ISO 27001, SOC 2, and GDPR.
Organizations today maintain an average of 125 different SaaS applications, costing $1,040 per employee annually, according to Gartner’s 2022 Market Guide for SaaS Management. As SaaS grows in popularity, security and identity teams are under pressure to manage security risks associated with the spread of data in these apps.
“SaaS applications are everywhere, holding sensitive data like customer lists, financials, and employee data. This is a new attack surface for the threat actors who misuse identity,” said Tarun Thakur, CEO and co-founder of Veza. “Conventional IAM techniques like authentication are not enough to secure access to data in SaaS apps. We are excited to introduce Veza for SaaS Apps to help our customers protect sensitive data against credential theft, malicious attacks and accidental exposure, putting SaaS access security within reach.”
The Veza solution includes integrations to 15 popular SaaS applications, including Salesforce, JIRA, Confluence, Coupa, Netsuite, GitHub, Gitlab, Slack, and Bitbucket. Because Veza uses an out-of-band approach to integrate with apps and systems, customers can integrate in less than a day, unlocking unprecedented visibility and control in just hours.
“Using Veza, we have been able to achieve end-to-end visibility over access permissions across our enterprise app stack, including Salesforce,” said Brian Miller, Director, Security Governance, Risk and Compliance at Achieve. “As our customer base continues to expand, Veza helps us maintain least privilege over sensitive financial customer data, giving us the confidence to adopt new apps at lightspeed.”
Capabilities of the Veza solution include:
Privileged Access Monitoring. Veza alerts security teams when there are new grants of privileged access and privilege drift in SaaS apps, such as new local admins in Salesforce. Veza monitors both human identities and machine identities like service accounts and third-party integrations.
User Access Reviews and Entitlement Certifications. Veza automates the identity governance and administration process of periodic access reviews, using workflow rules to route requests for certification and providing decision-makers with authorization context to choose the least-permissive role. Veza makes it possible to graduate from periodic batches to “continuous compliance.”
SaaS Misconfigurations. Veza monitors SaaS apps for administrative misconfigurations and policy violations with over 100 pre-built queries to monitor and detect common misconfigurations in permissions and access controls. For example, Veza alerts the security team when users have access to sensitive data but do not have MFA (multi-factor authentication) enabled.
SaaS applications contain sensitive data. Securing the access to this data in SaaS apps is complicated given the application-specific RBAC (role-based access control) that grants permissions to humans and services. Because security teams can’t see the reality of who can do what with data, SaaS apps are vulnerable to privilege sprawl and risky misconfigurations. The Veza Authorization Platform creates a comprehensive graph of identity-to-data by ingesting and organizing the authorization metadata (RBAC) from SaaS apps, cloud providers, data systems, and identity providers.
Veza is the authorization platform for data security. Identity and security professionals use Veza to modernize access governance for the new data and SaaS apps landscape. By automating the work of finding and fixing excessive permissions on a continuous basis, Veza helps organizations achieve Least Privilege. Veza’s unique approach ingests metadata from any SaaS app or data system, organizes it as an authorization graph, and makes it searchable in real-time. Global enterprises like Blackstone, Wynn Resorts, and Expedia trust Veza to protect sensitive data and automate access reviews. Founded in 2020, Veza is headquartered in Los Gatos, California, and is funded by Accel, Bain Capital, Ballistic Ventures, GV, Norwest Venture Partners, and True Ventures.
