Regaining control over SaaS usage with Wing Security

Claroty turned to SaaS security posture management (SSPM) leader Wing Security, to ensure its SaaS usage is secure

Claroty, a renowned leader in securing the Extended Internet of Things (XIoT), has earned its reputation through cutting-edge solutions that offer unparalleled visibility, robust protection, and advanced threat detection capabilities across all cyber-physical systems. 

Recognizing the paramount importance of gaining control over and safeguarding their employees' Software as a Service (SaaS) usage, Claroty chose to onboard Wing Security, a prominent provider of SaaS Security Posture Management (SSPM), to ensure comprehensive control and fortification of their SaaS layer.

Tim Hillyard, Senior Director of Security Operations at Claroty, lauded Wing Security for its role in delivering the necessary visibility and in-depth insights required to effectively safeguard their SaaS environment: “Wing provides us with the visibility and the detail we need to protect our (SaaS) environment and make sure that our employees are safe and secure when they're dealing with SaaS applications''. Ensuring employee safety and security while utilising all the benefits of SaaS applications, are clearly top priorities for Claroty.

The decentralised nature of SaaS onboarding, often circumventing IT or Security approvals, has resurfaced the complex challenge that is Shadow IT, leaving organisations exposed to heightened security concerns. Hillyard emphasises the significance of Wing Security in protecting against SaaS related threats: “We need Wing Security because many SaaS applications are actually vulnerable to certain types of attacks, and in some cases these SaaS applications are malicious. They are created by bad actors whose intention is to compromise your end systems, or gain access to your personal data. So we need visibility on bad applications so that we can protect our employees.”

Wing Security is unique in its pioneering approach as the sole SSPM provider offering non-intrusive SaaS discovery completely free of charge, exemplifying the company's unwavering commitment to enhancing SaaS security measures while providing tangible ROI in a cost-effective solution.

As an increasing number of organisations strive to achieve the desired assurance and peace of mind in their SaaS utilisation, Hillyard offers his advice: “Find a company like Wing, that can change quickly and adapt to the ever-changing SaaS threat landscape. “You need a tool that can also adapt quickly to the environment and protect your users and your data.”

Finding the right SSPM provider has become instrumental in fortifying an organisation's cybersecurity posture and ensuring their resilience against potential SaaS-related risks. By embracing the expertise of proactive and innovative partners, organisations can confidently navigate the complexities of modern SaaS usage and its security challenges.
