4 Emerging SaaS security risks to consider in 2021
Last year, we wrote about the threat landscape we saw on the horizon for 2020. Focusing on apps like Slack, we honed in on the risks that would matter in 2020. Although our analysis was written well ahead of the COVID-19, some of our concerns were exacerbated as a result of the pandemic. With the pandemic continuing into 2021, we wanted to take the time to review the state of cloud adoption in 2020 and update our threat assessment going into the new year.

Best tools for building your DLP tech stack
Most organizations are aware that data loss prevention must be a top priority, but few understand how different tools and policies must be leveraged in combination to create complete, 360-degree protection for critical data. As remote work and globalization increase, traditional methods of protecting data fail to account for data in motion and data in use on platforms like Slack, Google Drive, and AWS. If you’re seeking to build a new DLP solution from the ground up or looking to upgrade your legacy DLP solutions, here are the best tools to add to your DLP stack – and why you should consider a multi-faceted approach to data protection.
Case study: Foresight Mental Health is changing mental health care for the better with DLP in mind
Foresight Mental Health stands apart from other healthcare resources by connecting patients to providers and allowing people to use their insurance for mental health services that aren’t in network with insurance companies. After a wave of massive growth, Foresight Mental Health Director of Operations, Keely Strong, had a big task ahead — securing protected health information (PHI) for patients who receive care through Foresight Mental Health. She needed a DLP solution to protect patient data without slowing teams down. Keely found the solution she could trust and bring back to her technology leaders: Nightfall.
Which DLP tasks to automate – and which to do manually
Many organizations believe that DLP requires significant internal resources to implement and at least 18 months to start seeing a ROI. In reality, most data loss prevention steps can be done automatically using cloud-based tools like Nightfall. Here are the DLP steps that require manual effort – and the many more that can be completed using a cloud-native DLP platform.
Nightfall is the industry’s first cloud-native DLP platform that discovers, classifies, and protects data via machine learning. Nightfall is designed to work with popular SaaS applications like Slack, Google Drive, & GitHub as well as IaaS platforms like AWS. You can schedule a demo with us below to see the Nightfall platform in action.
