Data Access Control Use Cases for Software as a Service (SaaS) Applications

Modern businesses rely on Software as a Service (SaaS) applications for everything from storing sensitive information and PII to driving collaboration on critical projects. These cloud-based applications make it simple for employees to share information and collaborate with external parties, such as vendors, prospective customers, partners, contractors and temporary employees – but this convenience often comes at the cost of security. With no ability to define and enforce consistent data access controls across all the applications used to drive the business, it is nearly impossible to systematically protect company data across the entire SaaS estate. Old sharing permissions remain active long after they are needed, security teams get bogged down with manual work, and unmanageable SaaS data access accumulates, significantly increasing the likelihood of a data breach.

We take a unique, customer- focused approach to the challenge of labor-intensive security risk management and data exfiltration prevention in popular SaaS applications. By replacing manual work with automation, DoControl reduces the overload of work and complexity that security teams are continually faced with.
