SaaS Alerts Debuts App Security Solution for MSPs

SaaS Alerts has launched the Unify solution to provide MSPs with "visibility into the massive security blind spot between cloud-based SaaS applications and the devices that end-users leverage," according to the company.

Commenting on the Unify release, SaaS Alerts CEO Jim Lippie said:

"Unify is a real game-changer for the technology services community. Service providers have been leveraging RMM (remote monitoring and management) agents for decades and seemingly every time an MSP/MSSP introduces a new solution into an environment, it requires another agent.

"SaaS Alerts has developed a completely new approach by reading the device information from the millions of existing agents already deployed and correlating that data with the user behavior associated with the world's most popular SaaS applications. As a result of this enhanced visibility, more attacks can be stopped earlier."

How SaaS Alerts' Unify Solution Works

Unify connects SaaS application event data with end-user devices, SaaS Alerts said. In doing so, the solution creates a unified security view of each user, enabling MSPs to identify security blind spots.

In addition, Unify does not require a SaaS Alerts agent, the company indicated. Instead, Unify uses existing RMM agents, ensuring that MSPs can continue to remotely monitor and manage their customers' IT systems without having to install an additional agent.

Unify is now available at no additional cost to SaaS Alerts partners, and all active partners automatically receive Unify by provisioning Ninja RMM, ConnectWise Automate or Kaseya VSA within SaaS Alerts' platform.

A Closer Look at SaaS Alerts

SaaS Alerts provides cloud application security software exclusively to MSPs.

MSPs can use SaaS Alerts' platform to protect and monetize their customers' SaaS applications. They can use the platform across a wide range of SaaS apps, including:

  • Microsoft 365
  • Google Workspace
  • Salesforce
  • Slack
  • Dropbox

SaaS Alerts' platform works in combination with professional services automation (PSA) tools to alert MSPs about security issues, the company noted. That way, MSPs can leverage the platform to identify data theft, data-at-risk, bad actors and other security threats.

Meanwhile, SaaS Alerts offers a partner program that lets MSPs utilize its platform to look for abnormal user behavior and data loss and leakage across their customers' SaaS applications and track their customers' SaaS app usage. To date, more than 700 MSPs have partnered with SaaS Alerts.
