Users are no longer chained to their desks or the data center to conduct work anymore. They’re more mobile, collaborative, and flexible than ever. They leverage web-based apps, rich-media websites, and Software as a Service (SaaS) services to complete daily responsibilities and engage with customers. But while SaaS has made employees are more productive, it’s also made enterprises less secure.

A company’s attack surface is now unlimited and ubiquitous. The attack surface has transformed into everywhere that users log in from—whether it’s a remote office, their home, at a customer site, through public Wi-Fi, or while lounging at the beach. Attackers have taken notice. Menlo Security’s research has confirmed that SaaS services are increasingly being utilized to attack enterprises—essentially becoming the Trojan horse in the age of cloud computing.

Read This Paper to Learn:

  • How SaaS services are being used by attackers to attack enterprises
  • How the traditional security approach of whitelisting legitimate SaaS services is allowing these attacks to be successful
  • What a successful SaaS looks like and which SaaS services are most impacted
  • How a cloud security platform powered by an Isolation Core™ prevents such attacks and changes the way organizations protect users
