The Skyfence Cloud Gateway provides advanced capabilities to address the blind spot and security gaps created by the adoption of authorized and unauthorized cloud apps. Skyfence is architected to enable the safe and productive use of apps such as Salesforce.com, NetSuite, Office 365, Google Apps and others, by monitoring activity, assessing risk and protecting data in the cloud not addressed by traditional perimeter and endpoint controls.

According to CRN, “Dominant conglomerates like Amazon, Microsoft and Google are solidifying their hold on the cloud, increasingly controlling the evolution of the industry with hardware and software advancements implemented at a scale that seems to preclude anyone else from being competitive. But these 10 startups are innovating and changing the game. They're looking to seriously disrupt an industry already in constant flux.”

“Gaining visibility and control over cloud app usage is difficult for even the largest organizations with deep in-house IT resources,” said Ofer Hendler, CEO of Skyfence. “The Skyfence Cloud Gateway enables channel providers to offer their customers a managed service that can transparently discover, monitor, secure and audit cloud app usage without deploying any hardware.”
