Push Security, a technology provider enabling the secure adoption and use of SaaS, announced that it has completed a $4 million funding round led by Decibel and supported by prominent industry leaders, including Jon Oberheide , co-founder of Duo Security, and Haroon Meer, CEO and Founder. by Thinkst.
With this funding, Push will continue to develop technology that helps employees make smart decisions when using the company’s SaaS platforms, enlisting their help to improve security.
In a cloud-centric world, employees are rapidly evolving and adopting SaaS platforms to get things done. Most organizations use hundreds of SaaS applications in their environment and the majority of these applications belong to employees rather than IT or security. SaaS makes productivity gains and technical innovation accessible to businesses of all sizes, but it also introduces business risk if not properly managed. Without a way to ensure that employees are using SaaS securely, many organizations attempt to control SaaS with highly restrictive policies, which is frustrating for employees and security teams.
Push believes that the best way to support this shift towards productivity and flexibility is to take a user-centric approach – to empower employees to enhance their own security while using SaaS.
