Shadow IT and sanctioned cloud apps are gaining ground in the enterprise. At last count, employees at enterprise-class organizations were using 841 different apps on average, according to Blue Coat Elastica Cloud Threat Labs. It would seem that these days the only thing growing as quickly as the proliferation of cloud apps are the security and compliance issues accompanying them.
For companies that adopt cloud apps faster than they apply effective security there are dangerous implications, but risks associated with use of cloud apps can be mitigated with technologies available today through CASB gateways, CASB cloud app API integration, and secure web gateways.
