SafeNet’s SOC Approach to Managing Shadow IT Risks

The rapid evolution of technology has given rise to a phenomenon known as Shadow IT, a potential Achilles’ heel for organizations. At SafeNet, we recognize the challenges posed by Shadow IT and have integrated a strategic approach within our Security Operations Center (SOC) to effectively manage these risks. Join us as we explore the proactive measures taken by SafeNet SOC in mitigating the threats associated with Shadow IT.

Understanding Shadow IT: Shadow IT refers to the use of unauthorized software, applications, or hardware within an organization. These rogue technologies often operate outside the purview of the IT department, introducing potential vulnerabilities and security risks. SafeNet acknowledges that addressing Shadow IT requires a comprehensive and adaptive strategy.
