The Zscaler Data Protection Tour: How to Respond to Shadow IT


In this blog series, we are taking our readers on a tour of various challenges to enterprise data security. As we do so, we will detail the ins and outs of each subject, describe why they matter when it comes to keeping sensitive information safe, and explain how your organization can thoroughly and easily address each use case with Zscaler technologies--like cloud access security broker (CASB), data loss prevention (DLP), and more.

In each installment of this series, a brief video will accomplish the above while presenting a succinct demonstration in the Zscaler user interface, concretely showing how you can protect your data. 

Our first topic is:

Shadow IT

SaaS applications can be a boon to enterprise productivity and dynamism, but when unsanctioned SaaS applications (shadow IT) are used without IT’s approval, it creates significant risk for the enterprise. As data moves into unmanaged destinations where corporate visibility and control are lacking, it increases the likelihood of exfiltration, noncompliance with regulations, harm to data subjects, and, as a result, brand damage. 

Zscaler Shadow IT Discovery delivers complete visibility into applications in use as well as detailed insights into their riskiness and relevant security attributes. Watch the video below to learn more about the technology and to see it in action.
