We are excited to announce our expansion of DoControl’s integrated technology partnership program to include Datadog. As a leading platform provider for monitoring and security for cloud applications, the integration with Datadog allows security operations teams to have a more holistic view of risk across the mission-critical Software as a Service (SaaS) applications being leveraged to enable business enablement and productivity.
When it comes to addressing insider risk, security starts within. Protecting sensitive company data from exfiltration and misuse requires a combination of the right people, process, and technology. Managing insider risk and preventing threats to the business is not achieved with any of these pillars individually. Modern businesses require technology that prevents and detects unauthorized access to critical assets; processes to support automated data access remediation; and people that are educated about – and watchful of – potentially risky activity who can course-correct during potentially risky activity. Modern organizations need all three pillars interconnected in order to protect their most critical assets.
DoControl announced today that The Globee® Awards, organizers of world’s premier business awards programs and business ranking lists, has named DoControl’s No-Code SaaS Security Platform, a winner in the 17th Annual 2022 Information Technology World Awards®.
DoControl is named as a Representative Vendor in 2022 Gartner® Market Guide for Insider Risk Management Solutions. Gartner recently published the market guide which assists in understanding and implementing a comprehensive insider risk management program. Gartner describes how “the increase in a hybrid or remote workforce, compounded with additional vendor integration, has prioritized insider risk management as a focus area for security and risk management leaders.”
In today’s hybrid work environment, SaaS security has never been more important. Understanding your existing risks is a critical step to choosing the right security tool, but few SaaS apps provide the visibility necessary to perform a proper assessment.
On April 12th, GitHub announced they had uncovered evidence of an attacker abusing stolen OAuth user tokens to download data from dozens of their customers. The applications maintained by the compromised platform service providers, Heroku and Travis-CI, were used by GitHub users, which makes this breach a new addition to the growing list of recent attacks that utilized unauthorized access to target suppliers' systems.
Remaining conscious of these top 10 risks and encouraging employees to take preventative measures is best practice for any organization; however, it’s incredibly complex to ensure adherence across every single SaaS application used by the business. DoControl provides a crucial tool in the form of a centralized dashboard for visibility into all end-user activity within SaaS applications, and customizable security workflows that allow for the implementation of consistent security policies across the entire SaaS estate.
Since the dawn of man, security tools and technologies have always been perceived by the business as an obstacle. Instead of creating a more secure working environment, they often create frustration for most all users working within it. It goes without saying that every organization does what it can to be in the best position possible to mitigate the risk of a cyber breach or attack. But in doing so can create a tightrope walk of trying to move the business forward in a secure way. Walking that line is slow, and one slip could be detrimental to the business.
Our Workflows are designed to help organizations address their unique SaaS security needs while ensuring maximum operational efficiency in every scenario. These are just a few of the many use cases we’ve seen for Security Workflows, and for organizations with needs that aren’t covered here – we’d appreciate the chance to demonstrate that DoControl has a solution for you, too.
Defense-in-depth with security wrapped around every identity and around every asset – each time they connect to business-critical applications takes a zero-trust strategy to the next level. A combination of preventative controls and detective mechanisms can help get companies closer to zero trust. It's not just about controls either. Organizations need to find the right balance between technology, people, and process. Adopt an "assume breach" mentality to the organization's security programs. In the context of zero trust, it's not a matter of “if" but "when," which demands that the company focuses on breach recovery and not just breach prevention. Ensure the success of the organization's IT and security teams. Start enabling the business in a secure way by extending zero-trust to the SaaS application data layer.
Teasing out some of what’s reflected in Okta’s report only highlights the importance of centralizing the security of SaaS applications. The increased reliance on content collaboration apps requires increased security around them. The use of multi-vendor solutions that overlap require a consistent security strategy that scales in line with the growth and usage of these applications. If stop-gap measures are becoming longer term, then it's critical for organizations to reevaluate their security posture and ensure they have the necessary data access controls in place. Request a demo to see why more organizations are choosing to partner with DoControl to implement risk-based, future-proofed data access control workflows and policies.
We are excited to announce that Kobi Afoota, former CISO at Kornit Digital (NASDAQ: KRNT), has joined DoControl as Head of Information Security. At DoControl, Kobi will be responsible for leading security and risk management initiatives, application security, and compliance readiness.
As a customer success leader and a mother to two little girls, I see many similarities between my profession and parenthood. I am not saying that every client is like dealing with unruly toddlers, although at times it might feel that way. What I am saying is that each child is different, they require different things and at different stages of their growth and development. This generalization can be applied to your customer base as well. When I think about my girls, some things work well for both of them, but despite being in the same environment, what works well for one may not work at all for the other.
DoControl is excited to release the NEW Security Workflows, providing IT and security teams with the ability to create SaaS data access control workflows based on conditional logic, within a no-code policy enforcement platform.
Just as is with the cloud, securing SaaS is a shared responsibility. Providers are responsible for ensuring the security of their platforms, but there is an onus on the organization consuming the service to protect themselves from data overexposure and exfiltration, as well as cyber breaches and attacks.
We started 2021 by unveiling our first initial MVP which was designed and built based on feedback from multiple design partners and friendly customers. This initial cluster of customers truly helped us validate and shape the first product value proposition. If you’re reading this, thank you so much for all the support, feedback, and time. We generally believe it’s never early enough to go outside of the building and show your product to your target market, in our case Security and IT practitioners.
In this blog we are going to focus on three of the most widely adopted SaaS applications, based on revenue and growth, as well as just general popularity. We will highlight the pitfalls and security gaps (note: these apps are not inherently insecure!), and how DoControl can help deliver a single, unified strategy to SaaS application security and reduce the risk of both data exfiltration and cyberattacks.
You can’t protect what you don’t know exists. If you lack the insight and visibility across all the different SaaS applications that are being utilized by both internal and external users and entities, then it is extremely challenging to get an accurate assessment or quantification of the risk that you are faced with.

As work and home life have increasingly merged, many employees have found it convenient to share corporate data residing in SaaS applications to their personal email accounts. But this “personal sharing” can create vulnerabilities that are difficult for an organization’s SecOps people to be aware of, let alone manage.
DoControl’s story is more than good - it’s filling a critical gap and has true urgency! Any company collaborating via SaaS applications falls into this story. And our cause? It’s validated by our customers every day. That’s why I decided to join DoControl as the VP of Marketing.
