CUPERTINO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Skyhigh Networks, the Cloud Visibility and Enablement Company, today announced the general availability of the Skyhigh Enterprise CloudRisk™ Dashboard, which helps organizations quantify the risks associated with use of public cloud services. Skyhigh’s advanced analytics takes the guesswork out of understanding and managing cloud risk and provides an objective, comprehensive, data-driven approach to monitoring, and reducing cloud risk.
“The CSA has been working to establish standards that help in reducing the risk of cloud adoption,” said Jim Reavis, co-founder and CEO of the Cloud Security Alliance. “We are pleased to partner with Skyhigh as they take the lead in putting these standards in practice by providing continuous visibility and risk-based insights. Most importantly, these capabilities are easy to digest and actionable which is critical for widespread adoption.”
Skyhigh Networks enables organizations to shine a light on Shadow IT and gain complete visibility into the use of cloud services within their environment. As a critical and logical next step, the Enterprise CloudRisk Dashboard enables IT, Security, and Executive teams to: a) view a single score that represents their overall cloud risk, b) drill down to the contributing metrics, helping them understand the specific drivers of their risk score, c) receive actionable recommendations to reduce risk, d) benchmark their score both with their peers and across their departments, and d) track trends over time.
The Enterprise CloudRisk Dashboard delivers four key capabilities.
- CloudRisk Score – Provides a unique 1-10 score as well as contributing factors from service, user, and data risk.
- CloudRisk Recommendations – Offers specific, actionable recommendations to reduce cloud risk, thereby improving the organization’s CloudRisk Score
- CloudRisk Benchmarks – Compares an organization’s CloudRisk Score across internal departments and with industry peers.
- CloudRisk Trends – Shows changes to overall CloudRisk Score over time as well as trends in user, service and data risk.
“For years, financial services’ firms have been using objective, quantitative credit scores to evaluate potential lending risk,” said Rajiv Gupta, CEO and founder of Skyhigh Networks. “With Enterprise CloudRisk Dashboard, we aim to bring a similar approach to managing cloud services so that our customers can adopt new applications while minimizing risk.”
