CASB and SaaS Management: Should You Have Both?
We are more reliant on cloud applications than ever before.
We communicate, work, ideate, and produce through these SaaS applications – and the number of apps keeps growing.
The problem is, many of those applications are adopted without IT ever knowing. We call this Shadow IT and left unchecked, it can cause severe problems to the security and efficiency of our organizations.
Fortunately, IT has ways to monitor and control Shadow IT. Cloud Access Security Brokers(CASB) and SaaS Management are two particular tools.
Both tools help control Shadow IT, but in different ways and for different reasons. So the question then becomes – which one is right for you, and should you consider… both?

Do you have a grip on Shadow IT in your organization?
Shadow IT is pervasive. It exposes data, it bleeds budgets with hidden costs, and it creates hidden knowledge silos across the organization. However, employees continue to download unsanctioned applications and the cycle continues.
To combat this silent foe, companies and IT teams turned to a set of tools known as Cloud access security brokers, or CASBs, but these tools haven’t made Shadow IT disappear. Now, more and more organizations are considering SaaS Management as another way to fight the spread of Shadow IT.
In this whitepaper, we’ll examine the overlaps, the distinctions, and if you should use both.
