Shadow IT: The DIY SaaS That Puts Systems At Risk

By Giulio D'Ali & Simon Mendoza on Jun 3, 2021

When the wait for an approved solution from the corporate IT department feels too long, users navigate around the corporate policy and find their own solution.

Even the most benign of SaaS solutions can put a company at risk, functioning outside the parameters of IT security, privacy, and regulatory requirements. And the inherent challenge with SaaS, is that the risk is not a static moment in time. The institutional intelligence lives on in the cloud even as the user discontinues software usage. This means long-term exposure to both security breaches and spend.
