Security Insights delivers key SaaS security posture management (SSPM) metrics broken down into six distinct lenses for additional drill-downs: Data Protection, Integration, Data Loss Prevention, Access Control, Security Model Authorization, and Monitoring.

Granular drilldowns help ensure the Principle of Least Privilege – eliminating over-privileged users who can weaken your org’s security posture.

OwnBackup for CRM Platform Owners

Being directly responsible for your company’s CRM platform can be a heavy burden, since any data loss ultimately falls on you. What if you could remove that pressure and fix data loss or corruption issues almost as soon as they happen? With OwnBackup, you can.  OwnBackup instantly notify you of any anomalies based on rules that you define or even abnormalities detected by the system. And if you need to restore data, you can go back in time to recover the exact data you need without rolling back all of your records. When deploying any no-code or low-code enhancements, you must balance the desire to release new features with the negative impacts of preventable errors making it into production.

With Enhanced Sandbox Seeding, developers can define, fine-tune, and automate the replication of precise subsets of data from production or other sandboxes, then quickly seed them to Developer, Developer Pro, or Partial Sandboxes with identical metadata.

OwnBackup for Compliance Leaders

Compliance leaders are constantly challenged to keep up with an ever-growing list of geographic and industry regulations. While SEC 17a-4, HIPAA, require that data be retained for extended periods of time, other regulations like GDPR and CCPA require companies to do just the opposite.

With OwnBackup Archive, it’s easy to define, automate, and manage custom data retention policies that include specific data to be archived, how frequently data archiving activities occur, and how long archived data is retained under applicable regulations. Companies in highly-regulated industries, or those who are subject to evolving regulations, have strict audit and storage requirements and often need to produce accurate records of transactions in their backups.

Through Blockchain Verify, OwnBackup can help you meet compliance and regulatory objectives for electronic storage, record-keeping, and backup integrity of regulated records in your SaaS platform. As valuable as SaaS applications have become, there are some overlooked and somewhat alarming ramifications to security. The growth of SaaS has resulted in a dramatic increase in the volume, variety, and velocity of SaaS data CISOs need to manage and secure.

The digitization of business processes is flooding organizations with a greater volume of data than ever before, all of which has a variety of sensitivity levels ranging from public to highly confidential. At the same time, the velocity with which data is created is increasing at exponential rates--making it nearly impossible for those in charge of managing this data to keep up. OwnBackup for CISOs
