Beyond Shadow IT: Enabling and Accelerating the Adoption of Cloud Services


Shadow IT is a real and growing concern for agencies and enterprises, and for the right reasons. An organization uses 831 cloud services on average, and only 9% of the services used are “enterprise-ready”, meaning that they provide the security, compliance and governance capabilities required. In this session, Skyhigh Networks will share strategies their customers have embraced to enable cloud services, while ensuring privacy, security and compliance. Specifically, they will discuss practical approaches to: a) understand the scale and risk of Shadow IT, b) proactively identify and meet employees’ needs for new cloud services, and c) seamlessly enforce their security and compliance policies across cloud services.
