Now in general availability, Adallom advances the way enterprises secure information in SaaS applications by monitoring all activity, detecting unauthorized access and protecting users in real-time

MENLO PARK, Calif. – November 12, 2013 – Adallom, a pioneer in Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) security, today announced the general availability of its complete security solution for SaaS applications. Adallom delivers a new approach to SaaS compliance and protection, delivering seamless cloud-based security that audits all SaaS activities and provides real-time mitigation through user activity heuristics. The product is built for cloud scalability, extensibility and integration with existing security tools, such as antivirus (AV), virtual private network (VPN) and security information and event management (SIEM). Adallom is available as a private cloud or SaaS-based solution.

SaaS is Secure, Usage Isn’t

SaaS has drastically changed the way people work and operate, allowing users to access company applications and data from anywhere, on any device. However, SaaS adoption has also created a pronounced security gap as organizations are currently lacking the tools needed to build and enforce a consistent security policy across their SaaS applications, as well as gain visibility into user activities. As SaaS adoption grows, the resulting lack of visibility and control has become even more apparent. Adallom’s approach is prevention through intelligence, bridging the SaaS security gap by enabling companies to prevent modern attacks, comply with government and industry regulations, as well as monitor, and verify the endless human interactions with SaaS applications.

“SaaS models are common in today’s enterprises, but security professionals are only now figuring out how to modify and integrate their traditional control frameworks into these architectures. Solutions like Adallom’s provide a way to bridge this gap from past to present and future for most enterprises,” said Pete Lindstrom, VP of Research at Spire Security. “Organizations today need to figure out how to ‘cover their SaaS’ so to speak, by addressing the real issue of liability in the now-pervasive SaaS application space. Adallom provides a simple way to leverage the benefits of a SaaS model while retaining the controls necessary to protect themselves and their organizations.”

Evolving Security to SaaS Applications

Adallom transforms the way enterprises protect their information in SaaS and cloud services by monitoring all user activity, detecting unauthorized access and protecting users in real time. Adallom delivers:

Real-time Risk Analysis: Analysis of user activity in each cloud service based on contextual heuristics and detection of abnormal activity, including:

Incident Management: Alerts for high risk incidents, event tracking and reporting, as well as integration with SIEMs, and;

Global Intelligence Network: Aggregated knowledge base of known attack patterns across clients for high risk incident alerting, event tracking and reporting.

Real-time Risk Mitigation: Visibility to internal, external, and collateral malware threats to SaaS applications, via a single, extensible interface for defining policies, auditing user activities and preventing attacks.

Cross-service Audit: Centralized audit dashboard of SaaS applications used in the organization, integrating user login, device, location and activity information.

“Migrating our environment to the cloud proved to be a turning point for our security team,” said Yuval Illuz, head of global infrastructure at ECI. “To secure our users working outside the network and beyond corporate owned devices, we needed a solution that would secure our data within SaaS applications. With Adallom, we were able to extend our risk management practice to support Office 365, as well as other SaaS applications.”

“The freedom provided by SaaS applications has introduced a new threat vector through the myriad of modern attacks targeted at human interactions with SaaS applications. Adallom addresses this gap, preventing attacks by helping organizations extend visibility, compliance and security to SaaS and cloud services,” said Assaf Rappaport, co-founder and CEO, Adallom. “With unrivaled intelligence, Adallom provides the means to mitigate SaaS threats and enhance enterprise security while preserving the ease-of-use and convenience of cloud services. The goal is security without boundaries.”
