Individual users, cross‐functional teams, and even entire departments, frequently use unsanctioned Software‐as‐a‐Service (SaaS) applications, thus creating a “shadow IT” environment within the organization and perpetuating a “cat‐and‐mouse” relationship that often exists between IT security and end‐users. This Securing SaaS for Dummies eBook looks at the growth of SaaS application use within organizations and identifies the potential security risks they pose, especially if used without IT’s permission.
