The product is built for cloud scalability, extensibility and integration with existing security tools, such as AV, VPN and SIEM.
SaaS has drastically changed the way people work and operate, allowing users to access company applications and data from anywhere, on any device. However, SaaS adoption has also created a pronounced security gap as organizations are currently lacking the tools needed to build and enforce a consistent security policy across their SaaS applications, as well as gain visibility into user activities.
As SaaS adoption grows, the resulting lack of visibility and control has become even more apparent. Adallom’s approach is prevention through intelligence, bridging the SaaS security gap by enabling companies to prevent modern attacks, comply with government and industry regulations, as well as monitor, and verify the endless human interactions with SaaS applications.
“SaaS models are common in today’s enterprises, but security professionals are only now figuring out how to modify and integrate their traditional control frameworks into these architectures. Solutions like Adallom’s provide a way to bridge this gap from past to present and future for most enterprises,” said Pete Lindstrom, VP of Research at Spire Security. “Organizations today need to figure out how to ‘cover their SaaS’ so to speak, by addressing the real issue of liability in the now-pervasive SaaS application space. Adallom provides a simple way to leverage the benefits of a SaaS model while retaining the controls necessary to protect themselves and their organizations.”
Adallom transforms the way enterprises protect their information in SaaS and cloud services by monitoring all user activity, detecting unauthorized access and protecting users in real time. Adallom delivers:
Real-time risk analysis: Analysis of user activity in each cloud service based on contextual heuristics and detection of abnormal activity.
Real-time risk mitigation: Visibility to internal, external, and collateral malware threats to SaaS applications, via a single, extensible interface for defining policies, auditing user activities and preventing attacks.
Cross-service audit: Centralized audit dashboard of SaaS applications used in the organization, integrating user login, device, location and activity information.
“The freedom provided by SaaS applications has introduced a new threat vector through the myriad of modern attacks targeted at human interactions with SaaS applications. Adallom addresses this gap, preventing attacks by helping organizations extend visibility, compliance and security to SaaS and cloud services,” said Assaf Rappaport, co-founder and CEO, Adallom. “With unrivaled intelligence, Adallom provides the means to mitigate SaaS threats and enhance enterprise security while preserving the ease-of-use and convenience of cloud services. The goal is security without boundaries.”
