In the way that Salesforce ushered in the platform model for customer management with an integration-friendly ecosystem, Sookasa is bringing about a new approach to security by helping IT managers consolidate their needs across different SaaS tools.
San Mateo, Calif. (PRWEB) January 19, 2016
Cloud security company Sookasa today announced a native integration with customer relationship management platform Salesforce. As part of the integration, Sookasa also launched Salesforce Audit, which analyzes user behavior and provides advanced analytics to mitigate security risks on the Salesforce platform.
“We’re pleased to present our integration with Salesforce,” said Asaf Cidon, CEO and co-founder of Sookasa. “In many ways, Salesforce inspired our approach to security: In the way that Salesforce ushered in the platform model for customer management with an integration-friendly ecosystem, Sookasa is bringing about a new approach to security by helping IT managers consolidate their needs across different SaaS tools.”
Salesforce has pioneered the use of cloud computing in the enterprise with its sales and success tracking products. The leading CRM platform, Salesforce commands the largest share of the global CRM market, with 18.4 percent. Additionally, 81 percent of the Fortune 500 currently uses Salesforce across a wide set of industries, including companies in regulated industries.
Sookasa’s API-based Cloud Access Security Broker platform will allow businesses storing sensitive client information in Salesforce to enhance their confidence in their security posture and simplify SaaS security across the cloud—which is all the more important as the average employee now uses dozens of cloud services at work. Sookasa’s all-in-one suite of security products that detect potential data breach risks, protect sensitive data, and enforce security policies enables organizations to extend their security protocols to all their cloud-based productivity platforms.
Because Salesforce is the central database where sales, marketing, and success teams collaborate, a lot of data ends up on the platform—with a host of attendant risks. For example, CSOs often report use cases investigating sales representatives who leave the company and may export customer data.
By leveraging the Salesforce API, Sookasa’s Audit product enables team administrators to monitor real-time activity, scan user activity, assess data usage analytics, zero in on privileged user access behavior, audit location-aware access attempts, and automatically flag valuable contract and customer exports. In this way, Salesforce Audit enables organizations to more easily protect customer data and IP.
Salesforce Audit also seamlessly integrates with Sookasa’s enterprise file sync-and-share encryption products to appropriately protect sensitive data as well as drive advanced remediation of risks.
“Our integration provides organizations with the unique ability to work with customers and advance business relationships without the fear of data breaches,” Cidon said. “When robust security becomes the default, organizations can focus on what really matters: excellent customer care."
