How to Develop a SaaS Governance Framework
Global organizations are fast adopting to SaaS delivered applications. Cost benefits and ease of implementation are the obvious factors that influence decision-makers to opt for applications hosted on-cloud. However, security of SaaS applications cannot be overlooked if an enterprise has to reap benefits of SaaS model. Just like applications hosted on-premises servers, SaaS applications too are vulnerable to password abuse/misuse, privileged account misuse, unauthorized access among many other access control and identity management challenges.
Therefore, it is imperative to have comprehensive visibility over SaaS applications along with continuous risk-assessment tools to mitigate unauthorized access to applications. The security mechanism in the SaaS environment must have adequate safeguards to control, manage and monitor each and every access to SaaS applications.
