The DoControl SaaS Security Platform provides comprehensive shadow application governance through discovery, control, and automated remediation:
Discovery of all SaaS applications with complete mapping and inventory
Monitoring and control of anomalies and high-risk events
Automated remediation enforcement through granular security policy creation
The OAuth protocol provides a convenient way for one application to connect to another. However, when compromised, it can provide unauthorized access to sensitive data within the application that it’s connected to.
The risk of supply-chain-based attacks involving machine identity credentials is more common now than ever before.
Three Risk Considerations with OAuth Applications:
OAuth apps are often overprivileged with risky permission scopes
OAuth apps may not be verified via Marketplace
OAuth apps may not be approved internally through IT/Security teams
The growth of SaaS applications, the increasing demand to integrate SaaS applications for unified security and control, and the issue of APIs have created demand in the market for a single service offering that integrates and manages disparate SaaS applications. This IDC Analyst Brief provides considerations and recommendations in assessing SaaS Security platform providers.
Create data access workflows that span across all your SaaS applications without the need for coding – just drag-and-drop to create complex policies quickly and easily.
Our security workflows can be triggered by hundreds of different SaaS events and designed to follow unlimited conditions, making them fully customizable for any use case.
Our workflow templates are ready out-of-the-box to ensure ease-of-use, and shorten time-to-value for common use cases.
Source of Truth
DoControl continuously monitors your SaaS environment to provide a current and exhaustive inventory of all 3rd party OAuth SaaS applications, files that are stored within the application, along with rich metadata for each asset.
Utilize rich behavioral analytics that combines past end-user behavior patterns and deterministic behaviors to mitigate insider threats as quickly as they appear.
DoControl integrates with your existing EDR, IDP, and HR solutions, allowing you to create workflows to address changes and activity detected across all these platforms.
Create workflows to enforce granular access controls for Personally Identifiable Information (PII), by automatically classifying PII as soon as it is detected within SaaS assets.
Actionable CASB Solution
Workflows can be designed to trigger automated remediation actions, manual steps that require human review, or a combination of both.
Our CASB solution enables you to set workflows that automatically query employees about unusual or high-risk SaaS activity. Minimize the guesswork and manual labor involved in the security process.
Gain end-to-end visibility through a comprehensive inventory of multiple SaaS applications and environments
Assess organizational posture through risk scoring and classification assignment across all business-critical applications
Establish pre-approval processes and workflows to onboard new applications through end user engagement
Reduce the attack surface through automated suspension or removal of potentially malicious applications
Alert on rogue, high-risk or vulnerable (i.e. excessive permissions or privileges) applications through smart analytics
DoControl provides a unified, automated, and risk-aware SaaS Security Platform. The solution secures business-critical applications and data, drives operational efficiencies, and enables business productivity. DoControl’s core competency is focused on protecting business-critical SaaS applications and data through automated remediation.

Shadow Applications refer to the use of applications within an organization that has not been formally approved or sanctioned by the organization's IT department. These applications are often used to bypass the organization's standard processes for acquiring and using IT/Security resources. They may be used for a variety of purposes, including storing and sharing data, communicating with colleagues, or accessing business applications.
The use of Shadow Applications can be a significant issue for organizations, as they can pose a number of risks, including security vulnerabilities, data leakage, and compliance issues. It can also lead to problems with data integrity, data loss, and interoperability, as well as difficulties in managing and maintaining the systems. In order to mitigate these risks, organizations should have strong policies in place to manage and control the use of IT resources. Organizations should work to ensure that all employees are aware of these policies and understand the importance of adhering to them.
Auditing Shadow Applications can be a challenging task as it often involves the use of unauthorized systems and processes that may not be documented or easily visible. IT and Security teams should look to gain visibility into both sanctioned and unsanctioned applications that exist within the IT estate. One way to achieve this is to identify application-to-application interconnectivity via the OAuth (Open Authentication) protocol. This will help identify applications that are trying to connect to existing or known applications within the environment.
The use of Shadow Applications can introduce risk into the organization's information technology environment without the appropriate controls and oversight in place. For example, if an employee uses a SaaS service to store and share sensitive company data, the organization may not have visibility into how that data is being protected or accessed. This can create a security risk if the SaaS service is not as secure as the organization's own systems, or if the employee is not following the organization's security policies and procedures.
