The Zscaler Data Protection Tour: How to Secure SaaS Misconfigurations


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 all 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 its 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. 

Prior topics include shadow IT and risky file sharing. Today’s topic is:

SaaS misconfigurations

SaaS applications require a myriad of configuration settings to be applied correctly in order to ensure that they function properly and securely. A single setting being improperly configured can easily expose data, enable breaches, prevent regulatory compliance, and more. Unfortunately, cloud applications are dynamic in nature and configured by IT professionals who often aren’t security experts. Additionally, manually monitoring settings across different apps is a highly laborious process. 

Zscaler SaaS Security Posture Management (SSPM) is the ideal solution for remediating SaaS misconfigurations. It automatically crawls instances of your SaaS applications (from Microsoft 365 to GitHub), identifies potentially costly misconfigurations, and prioritizes uncovered risks so that you can easily identify what issues need to be fixed. Watch the video below to see a quick demo.
