Web based applications and SaaS apps are now crucial to many businesses both for the core business services and boutique / specific department requirements. Worse, anyone can sign themselves up with or without a credit card as free website services still present security and data risks. Metering web and SaaS applications cannot be ignored.
Installing the agent from Asset Vision provides identification of all website hits, and these websites can be defined as applications enabling metering. SaaS apps are replacing traditional software installs and although it is hard to become non-compliant they often don’t help you optimize your usage and logins.
Dashboards in Asset Vision present key finding including component usage and the raw data is available for analysis. Monitoring what websites are being visited and used in order to spot trends, issues and shadow applications enhances security and promotes vulnerability analysis.
