The rise of heavily interconnected SaaS applications has brought forward new challenges for enterprise security. As ease of integration increases, so does the risk of unauthorized or insecure third-party applications exposing sensitive data.
For example, Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace each feature thousands of marketplace apps that users can authorize with a single click of a button, bypassing security teams to grant unknown third-party services access to sensitive resources and data.
Outside of marketplace add-ons, many apps also harbor dozens or hundreds of service accounts and access tokens to integrate with other apps and services, which accumulate over years without an audit to assess risk and necessity. Traditional security tools are ill-equipped to handle the web of third-party integrations, add-ons, and plugins that come with modern SaaS app platforms.
