Why is it important to secure access to SaaS apps?

The levels of decentralization (remote work) we have seen in the last few months and years, have shown their ugly face — challenges such as unencrypted networks, unlisted websites, and slow speeds. Unauthorized users are gaining access to unsecured corporate data. In a study commissioned by Ermetic, 98% of US companies with 1500+ employees experienced at least one cloud data breach in 2020-2021.

Whereas previously, an employee would only be able to access apps and software through the local network, nowadays, businesses must ensure that all employees have secure access to their SaaS apps whether they connect through a public network or the cloud.

Bandwidth usage

Bandwidth usage

In order to safeguard SaaS traffic, all internet traffic must be routed through a VPN, which can lead to bandwidth and performance problems, both of which can lower employee productivity.



Regardless of whether they are using a corporate or personal device, authenticated users must have constant access to a secure network, while unauthorized users must be denied that access.
