Shadow IT Discovery

Gain Control Over Runaway Shadow IT

You can’t manage what you can’t see. Without visibility into all your organization’s cloud usage, you may be risking security, allowing leaks of sensitive data and reducing efficiency. For example, on their own, users can access dozens of file-sharing applications with varying levels of risk. Greater visibility into Shadow IT enables organizations to standardize on a single legitimate file sharing service while keeping your users happy.
