SaaS providers handle much of the security for a cloud application. The SaaS provider is responsible for securing the platform, network, applications, operating system, and physical infrastructure. However, providers are not responsible for securing customer data or user access to it. Some providers offer a bare minimum of security, while others offer a wide range of SaaS security options. By 2022, Gartner projects that 95% of cloud security failures will be the customer's fault. To avoid security breaches, customers can implement improved security practices and technologies. Only 1 in 10 providers encrypt data at rest, and just 18% support multifactor authentication. Clearly, not all of that customer trust is deserved. An audit of a SaaS provider can include checks on its compliance with data security and privacy regulations, data encryption policies, employee security practices, cybersecurity protection, and data segregation policies. AppOmni is the only SaaS CSPM solution that gives teams all the tools they need to be successful – from security posture management to monitoring and detection to continuous compliance. To properly secure and manage the use of critical SaaS applications, Security, Compliance, and IT teams need a comprehensive solution that enables immediate visibility, proactive posture monitoring, normalized event streams, and effective compliance tooling. AppOmni is that solution.

Founded in 2018, AppOmni empowers Security, Compliance, and IT teams with unique capabilities across all phases of a mature Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) program. Unlike traditional security and management tools, AppOmni deeply understands SaaS applications and provides immediate visibility, management, and detection capabilities. The company’s leadership team brings expertise and innovation from leading SaaS providers, high tech companies, and cybersecurity vendors.

SaaS Security Posture Management

SaaS Security Posture Management (SSPM) refers to critical security tooling and automation that enables your Security, Compliance, and IT teams to manage security posture and risk in your SaaS environments. As more and more critical business data and workloads are handled by SaaS providers, SSPM is the natural evolution of Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM). SSPM solutions are capable of analyzing security posture and configuration settings, evaluating data access rights, and detecting risks and events in cloud applications. Mature SSPM solutions enable security teams to monitor security posture and data access in critical cloud environments, preventing incidents from ever occurring. In addition to proactive features targeting posture and data access, SSPM solutions can normalize many types of security-relevant data across multiple cloud services and apply security rules against them. Any violations of these security policies can result in automatic workflows and notifications to a SOC and/or SIEM.

Why SSPM?

SSPM solutions are a crucial part of a mature security program. Organizations often have multiple instances and environments for their mission critical SaaS applications. This includes environments supporting various business units, geographies, as well as testing and development. Security teams need the ability to scan, manage, and monitor these environments to ensure that critical security controls are consistently in place. A complete SSPM solution enables your Security, Compliance, and IT teams to gain immediate visibility into the security posture, configuration, and data access across your critical SaaS environments and instances. Automatic event normalization and built-in detections allow data to flow directly to your existing SIEM and SOC organizations, giving them monitoring abilities they’ve never had before. A security organization needs purpose-built SSPM solutions for the business-critical SaaS applications that process, store, or otherwise manage sensitive information. While enterprises today have begun to deploy CSPM solutions, which are similar in purpose but targeted at infrastructure, for their infrastructure clouds, many have not put the same critical security tooling in place for their SaaS applications. SaaS applications drive the modern enterprise. They are relied upon for managing customer data, allowing internal collaboration, and keeping organizations connected across the world. More and more critical information is stored in or flows through SaaS applications at large companies every day.
