From students to executives, finding solutions to improve efficiency, productivity, and communication has become vital.
These end users are trying to excel in their work, and while they don't mean to cause harm, in most organizations this desire leads to the use of applications, services, and data storage and sharing beyond IT's boundaries. This practice, known as “shadow IT,” walks a line that information security officers are uncomfortable with, and it's having an obvious impact on technical support teams. The good news is, there are opportunities for all support organizations, regardless of their stance on shadow IT.

Enterprises of all sizes are challenged to effectively provide secure
access to a rapidly growing mosaic of cloud, on-premise and mobile
applications. Whether sanctioned by the enterprise IT group of
purchased by departmental shadow IT organizations, individually
provisioned applications present a great management burden with
multiple negative operational effects:
• Time and money wasted by manual on-and off-boarding,
and lost passwords.
• Security risk from weak, easy-to-remember passwords, as well as
from system access by former employees whose credentials are
not promptly revoked.
• Lack of visibility into who accesses which application,
and from where.
As a result, enterprises and users encounter a range of obstacles that
prevent them from securely operating at speed. At best, users who
clamor for access to applications are inconvenienced when they don’t
get access quickly enough, or not at all. Worst case, because today’s
IT footprint is large and porous, companies face headline-m

Office 365, Salesforce, and other cloud apps deliver a boost in employee productivity, but this benefit comes at a price. Once data moves outside an enterprise, security teams lose visibility and control into how it’s accessed and used.
There is also the risk of unsanctioned apps or Shadow IT – the cloud apps setup and managed outside of IT that they have no visibility of; all this leaves an organization having to manage up to 1,000 cloud apps*. Deploying a CASB solution can help you discover and assess risk from unsanctioned cloud apps and control sanctioned cloud app use.
Through a hands-on evaluation, ESG discovered that Forcepoint CASB:
Reduces threat response times
Grants visibility and context into user activity
Controls user access to cloud apps from different locations/devices
