Skyfence Introduces Free Cloud Discovery Tool for Visibility into SaaS App Usage and Risks

Skyfence, the company that automates visibility and control over cloud apps, today announced a free version of Skyfence Cloud Discovery that enables organizations to instantly assess authorized and unauthorized cloud app usage. Skyfence generates an inventory of all SaaS applications and services along with risk information that enables IT staff to determine which apps need to be managed, blocked or actively monitored in order to mitigate security threats. This innovative offering is available via a simple, self-service download and combines a knowledge base and online community to ensure customer success.

Cloud apps used for Sales, Marketing, Finance, IT, Human Resources and Engineering functions are easy for employees to adopt, but difficult for IT to discover and monitor. Skyfence Cloud Discovery Free enables organizations to easily take the important first step in gaining visibility and control over the adoption of cloud apps, so they can manage their safe and productive use. Unlike vendors that require IT organizations to provide confidential network and user information or engage in a lengthy sales process, Skyfence allows administrators and IT Managers to run their own reports on premise immediately, and does not require any financial investment.

“Discovery is the right way to begin addressing cloud app security blind spots,” said David Monahan, Research Director for Enterprise Management Associates (EMA). “With this free tool, Skyfence enables any size organization to identify which cloud apps are being used, who is using them and what risks they pose. This visibility provides benchmark data needed to assess and manage cloud app usage, and their corresponding risks, within the organization.”

To generate a comprehensive Cloud usage report – quickly and accurately – the Skyfence Cloud Discovery tool allows IT and security administrators to easily import existing log files from leading firewall, SIEM and Web proxy solutions. Skyfence Cloud Discovery Free shines a light on “Shadow IT” by providing summarized and detailed views of all cloud apps, traffic volume, quantity of users and risk information associated with each app. To meet enterprise requirements for data privacy and security, the tool can be downloaded and run locally on any Windows or Mac system so log files containing company information and sensitive data never have to leave the network.

“Most companies recognize that cloud apps pose a potential security threat, but lack the tools to assess the depth and breadth of the problem,” said Ofer Hendler, CEO of Skyfence. “While many vendors are charging high fees for visibility into SaaS Apps, the Skyfence Cloud Discovery Free Tool makes it easy and affordable to quickly, securely and accurately discover cloud app usage and risks across an organization.”

The Skyfence Cloud Discovery Free tool is available immediately via download at no cost at http://www.skyfence.com/cloud-discovery-free/

The free license includes perpetual use of the tool with no limit on the number of reports that can be generated. Skyfence Cloud Discovery Free is part of the Skyfence Cloud Gateway family of products that includes Skyfence Cloud Discovery Enterprise, Skyfence Cloud Analytics and Skyfence Cloud Protection.
