Valence Security today announced the availability of its Collaborative SaaS Security Remediation Platform in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, an online store providing applications and services for use on Azure. Valence Security customers can now take advantage of the productive and trusted Azure cloud platform, with streamlined deployment and management.
While SaaS (software as a service) helps organizations improve productivity and agility, it also adds complexity to the enterprise environment as IT security teams need to have visibility and control over their SaaS risks. The Valence platform allows security teams to protect their business-critical SaaS applications from risks associated with misconfigurations, SaaS-to-SaaS integrations, external data shares and identities and permissions. Valence covers SaaS Security Posture Management (SSPM) use cases, empowers security teams to prioritize SaaS security risks and enables automated and decentralized remediation workflows across the distributed organization.
“SaaS adoption has skyrocketed in the past few years with procurement, deployment and management primarily by non-IT business units,” co-founder and CEO Yoni Shohet explained. “Malicious actors are leveraging complex SaaS configurations to execute attacks that leverage unmanaged identities, third-party OAuth and other misconfigurations. Our goal at Valence is to allow security teams to collaborate with their business units to enable secure SaaS adoption and accelerate business productivity.”
