Saas Security Final Piece Before Adoption Spreads
Total Articles: 56
According to industry research from IDG, the companies want to adopt new cloud technology but are waiting until SaaS Security is more developed. That’s the situation US auto parts supplier Artes Electric is in. Their CIO Eric Atkins said at a panel at RSA Conference, “We see a lot of value in SaaS applications but are taking a wait-and-see approach before uploading our sensitive data.”
Experts agree, there is still some ways to go before SaaS applications meet the security and compliance requirements of corporate customers. The context of the information being uploaded is also important. According to Justin Somaini of Box, “a [movie] script is just a file for all intents and purposes. But movies are there to get an emotional reaction.”
That makes the actual footage of the movie much more valuable. Leaking a blockbuster movie online before it debuts in theaters can impact the bottom line of content owners. In the case of the largest movies, these breaches can dampen theater ticket sales by tens or even hundreds of millions of dollars over the initial release of the movie in theaters.
That makes uploading such data to the cloud look risky for production companies.
Still, there are significant benefits to leveraging on demand services despite SaaS Security. Being able to collaborate on a film in real time anywhere in the world is much easier with the new generation of collaboration tools than just using email and other traditional applications.
What’s needed before more widespread adoption of SaaS in enterprises is greater visibility into what apps employees are using and their risk.
From there, security teams can determine which ones pose a risk and which ones are safe enough to host sensitive information. “It’s all about the context of the information and the security controls of the SaaS application.”
