Shadow IT You can't enable, manage and secure what you can't see Organizations, departments, and individual users are all embracing the cloud and leveraging new apps to help improve productivity but the majority of new apps are being adopted without any involvement from IT or Security. This results in a big shadow IT challenge with the typical organization accessing thousands of cloud apps that IT isn't aware of. The lack of a coordinated cloud enablement strategy typically leads to a broad set of productivity, expense, security and support issues. Organizations need full visibility into cloud activity, app and vendor details, usage trends, and risk profiles to enable cloud adoption in a secure and organized fashion. True visibility is more than just app identification The first step is identifying the full spectrum of apps and services that are in use in your organization, but that isn't enough. You need to understand who the vendor is, what the app does, how many users are accessing it, and what level of risk it represents. Problems we solve Leveraging WSA log files for Shadow IT visibility Cisco provides in-product integration between WSA and Cloudlock. From the WSA user interface you can easily setup WSA for ongoing log transfer to the Cloudlock App Discovery solution. Cisco Cloudlock App Discovery supports both an aggregated view of data from multiple WSA devices and a more targeted view of data from a specific device. Sanctioning the unsanctioned With hundreds of apps in use and new ones being adopted on a regular basis, organizations need an automated way to group apps by category, view key vendor and app details, and compare risk elements and compliance certifications. All of this insight is required for IT and Security leaders to make informed sanctioning decisions about cloud apps currently in use.
