Control Access to SaaS Apps 

The Rise of SaaS 

After years of steady growth, SaaS is now the predominant computing environment for most business-critical applications.  

There are popular SaaS offerings for every department across the organization, from DevOps and Sales to Human Resources and Finance – and beyond.  

Teams are no longer buying and managing software in-house, and then setting up dedicated servers to run their applications. Now it’s as simple as signing a license agreement. 

Convenience, predictable costs, reduced maintenance and computing overhead, are just some of the many reasons we’re seeing this transition. 

The pros of shifting from on-prem to cloud-based applications clearly outweigh the cons, but there are downsides to giving up control over your apps. You can’t customize some aspects of your application, for example. Instead, you have to submit a feature request and hope the vendor can accommodate your needs.  

There is one area, however, where you can’t compromise: security. 

SaaS Under Attack 

If you haven’t experienced a SaaS security incident, you might be inclined to downplay the potential risks. Before you do, consider these sobering statistics: 

This shouldn’t be surprising, as cybercriminals are primarily interested in financial gain, and there is a lot of valuable information housed in SaaS applications. Because they’re accessible by anyone with an internet connection, these applications represent a prime target. 

ISO: A SaaS Security Solution  

There is a growing market for SaaS security solutions, primarily focused on large corporations. As such, those tools are expensive, complex, and are often just one component of a broader enterprise security platform. 

SMBs, on the other hand, simply need a way to reduce their exposure to SaaS security risks. Instead of a complicated platform that consumes hours of the IT team’s time, SMBs need a solution that: 

  • Can be quickly set up and deployed 
  • Is intuitive and easy to use 
  • Is cloud-native and continuously updated by the provider 

This is exactly what SaaSPass delivers! 

Highly Capable 

Don’t let SaaSPass’s easy deployment and simple UI fool you – it still features an array of powerful capabilities. Most notably: 

  • A unique IP address to connect to your SaaS applications. If the traffic doesn’t originate from that address, it is blocked by the SaaS provider, full stop. This is a feature that many enterprise solutions don’t even offer.  
  • Integration with major identity providers and support for SCIM and SSO.  
  • 1-click kill switch that instantly cuts off a compromised account from your SaaS environment. This prevents multi-SaaS attacks from spreading beyond your control. 
  • Visibility into the users and devices accessing your SaaS environment from a single management console. 

But wait, there’s more! SaaSPass makes your team’s lives easier in several other ways, including: 

  • Easy provisioning of SaaS application access. Does the Marketing Manager need access to your CRM and email marketing apps, but not the HR management tool? Simple, just align groups with the apps they need and SaaSPass will ensure that users can access the tools they need – but nothing else.  
  • High-speed connectivity via the Perimeter 81 Global Backbone Network. Instead of remote user traffic hopping from ISP to ISP before it (eventually) reaches the SaaS server, SaaSPass traffic takes the express lane. Our global points of presence (PoPs) feature dual tier-1 connectivity, with reserved bandwidth for consistent, fast, and reliable delivery. 
  • Broad OS and device support. SaaSPass is accessible with all major devices and operating systems, including Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, and Chromebook.
