Complete Visibility and Control Over SaaS Usage

Software as a Service (SaaS) is one of the fastest growing areas of cloud computing, in some cases predicted to outpace platform and infrastructure services. Gartner predicts strong growth of SaaS technologies reaching revenue figures of $85 billion by the end of 2019. The growth comes at a 17.8 percent increase from previous years and accounts for a majority proportion in the public cloud revenues forecasted to reach $278 billion by the year 2021.

Despite this accelerating SaaS adoption, most enterprise IT departments don’t know what SaaS apps are running in their environments or how they’re being utilized.

It’s time you got a handle on your organization's SaaS usage. Flexera has enabled clients to save hundreds of millions of dollars with our software spend optimization solutions, and now we’re bringing that expertise with our SaaS management.

Shine a Light on Shadow SaaS

Buying SaaS applications is dangerously easy. Anyone with a credit card and an email address can subscribe to an app and start using it that same day, regardless of your internal policies.

This results in the rapid proliferation–typically outside official procurement channels–of SaaS apps throughout an organization. This is shadow SaaS, and it creates painful challenges:

  • You waste money on SaaS subscriptions that aren’t needed
  • Unauthorized applications hosting your proprietary data, increasing security and regulatory risks
  • Increased risk of exposing data to people that shouldn’t have access
  • Increased maintenance and support overhead

KEY FEATURES

  • Detect unauthorized SaaS apps
  • Stay in compliance with regulations such as GDPR and HIPAA
  • Centralize reporting and help track illusive users
