SaaS has fundamentally changed security requirements. We used to just go into work, and everythingócorporate applications, sensitive customer data, employee health records, etc.ówas within the ďsafeĒ four walls of the corporate network behind a firewall.
Now employees work remotely and use mobile devices, including unmanaged, personal devices. They access SaaS apps that live in the cloud without any sort of firewall that IT can use to monitor and manage access. Prominent examples include Salesforce.com, Google Apps, Office 365, Box, and many others.
As employees use these SaaS apps, they are creating proprietary company data, often confidential in nature, that exists outside the control of IT, creating new challenges for security teams.
In this new world, IT needs to track sensitive corporate data in third-party SaaS apps, and ensure that only the right people have the right level of access to it. In this whitepaper, weíll explain ten steps on how to do that

In response to the federal governmentís Cloud First initiative, agencies are moving to the cloud at an accelerated rate - moving on-premise applications, data and workloads to cloud infrastructure and adopting SaaS technologies like Salesforce, ServiceNow and Workday.
What many in government have found is that integration and looking for government integration solutions has emerged as a stumbling block that has prevented government from realizing many of the benefits of moving to the cloud. This is because while a growing number of applications adopted by government are in the cloud, the underlying integration technologies connecting these applications are still based on-premise, meaning that government IT teams still have to spend time provisioning and maintaining infrastructure to ensure that their middleware doesnít become a performance bottleneck for their applications.

It has been said that you canít manage what you canít measure, and you must measure what really matters. New service delivery models for IT service management, such as software as a service (SaaS), as well as emerging communications channels for support that include social media, will require some changes to the way you traditionally measure the effectiveness of your services. Thatís why you should reexamine your service metrics as you begin to rely more heavily on SaaS, social media, and a more services-oriented approach to IT delivery.
According to Gartner, 50 percent of all new IT service desk tool purchases will utilize the cloud model by 2015. Yet service delivery via the cloud can adversely affect ITís ability to meet an organizationís requirements. The adoption of cloud-based solutions demands that the business take a look at the skills needed for success, the delivery channels that must be realigned, and the potential effects on the business. With these issues in mind, is it worth venturing into the cloud?
The market has been and will continue to be inundated with a plethora of IT service management (ITSM) vendors creating solutions dedicated to supporting cloud-based service management. In this article, we discuss why this is the case, as well as the benefits an organization can achieve by moving to a cloud-based environment.
The nature of todayís business climate means that now, more than ever, companies look for any business advantage that helps them stay ahead of the competition. Often, that means companies take such steps as creating innovative products, increasing and maintain customer loyalty, and implementing cost-control measures to realize distinct advantages.
Leading industry analysts point to two areas internally where companies can achieve the best possible advantages, by focusing on a companyís workers and work processes.
