Grip Security: Securing the Cloud
The advantages of the cloud are gaining attention, and many businesses are adopting the cloud to store their valuable data. The cloud obviously frees companies from the hardware loop and stores tons of bytes of data on a remote server. But with the benefits came the absolute risk of these classified data being exposed. Software as a Service is a blessing to most businesses but being safe on the cloud became a considerable risk when it comes to the security angle. This was when Grip Security noticed the inevitable need for cloud security solutions. They conducted extensive market research and came up with solutions to safeguard precious data from being hacked ruthlessly. Grip Security offers 360-degree visibility, governance, and data security to help enterprises secure their SaaS ecosystem. Grip brings an unparalelled SaaS security layer while remaining SaaS agnostic. Like VPNs being the only way to access remote networks, Grip’s endpoint-centric approach is the only access point to the customer’s SaaS portfolio.
Today, an average enterprise uses many SaaS applications to boost its growth and digital transformation. However, while SaaS has fulfilled its growth-enabling potential, most organizations have lost their grip on its consumption and use. From the security perspective, SaaS disrupts the long-standing model of how enterprises execute security. Traditional tools such as VPNs, Firewalls, and DLPs, used to protect software usage, rely on the existence of secure perimeters. Within those limitations, data essentially travels freely, with security tools employed to observe the exfiltration of data outside the secure frame and the blockage of malicious entities from entering. These security tools operate under the assumption that companies’ security and IT teams will function as network gatekeepers, continuously inspecting incoming data and installing security sentinels on corporate assets. Grip maps data flows to enforce security policies and prevent data loss across the entire SaaS portfolio. With Grip, security teams are automatically involved in governing SaaS without becoming a roadblock. Moreover, Grip provides in-depth security focused on a highly enforceable edge-centric approach to instantly control and reduce risk from an ever-fluid SaaS attack surface without latency or blind spots.
Grip brings an unprecedented SaaS security layer while remaining SaaS agnostic. Similar to VPNs being the only way to access remote networks, Grip’s endpoint-centric approach is the only access point to your SaaS portfolio. LiorYaari, Grip Security CEO and Co-Founder, says, “IT and security managers who fail to appreciate the inherent risk of this shadow world can no longer maintain an accurate sense of their security posture.” Not coincidentally, in 2019, 68% of organizations said they are mostly or all SaaS-driven, while more than half of enterprises cited security as a top concern. “Technology innovation is our only hope of maintaining strict, low friction and scalable security program. Now is the time to get a Grip on the burgeoning and chaotic SaaS ecosystem,” says LiorYaari.
By providing near 100% visibility across all enterprise saas applications, Grip shines the industry’s most comprehensive light across known or unknown apps, users, their fundamental interactions with extreme accuracy that minimizes false positives. Also, by mapping data flows to impose security policies and preventing data loss across the whole SaaS portfolio, Grip security is automatically involved in governing SaaS without creating a roadblock. Grip’s pioneering and constructive approach protects enterprises from going overboard while improving browsing experience and data security without interfering with employee workflow.
Grip secures all SaaS applications without requiring incremental resourcing or performance degradation by channelling and uniting the traffic across every user and device. Grip can work both as a standalone platform or complement a forward or reverse proxy CASB, covering the security blind spots they leave behind. Recently Grip Security has been named the “Zero-Trust Network Access Solution of the Year” in the 2021 CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards from among the 4000 nominees. “It is an honour to have Grip Security recognized by the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards program,” says LiorYaari, CEO and co-founder of Grip Security. “Our solution was created to instantly control and reduce risk from an ever-fluid SaaS attack surface. With the continuously growing demand of SaaS applications needed by security teams, Grip’s innovative solution stands alone in providing the most cost-effective and comprehensive coverage with absolutely zero touches,” he added.
