CLOUD APP SECURITY

What can a disgruntled employee do in 37 minutes?

Case Studies

“Microsoft Cloud App Security has given us a key capability to secure and provide insight into cloud applications so we can make the move to the cloud without compromising the visibility and control we have come to expect.”

Andy Radle, Cloud Security Architect, Hewlett Packard Enterprise

GET SAAS ACCESS UNDER CORPORATE CONTROL WITH MICROSOFT ENTERPRISE MOBILITY & SECURITY

 

37 minutes.  That's the average time that it takes to decommission an employee’s access to corporate and SaaS applications after they resign or are terminated.   What can a disgruntled employee do in 37 minutes?  While IT is busy shutting down access to AD and a myriad of SaaS, the organization is at risk.

Using Azure Active Directory and its interface to 3300+ SaaS apps in the marketplace, organizations can immediately moderate that risk.  Once a ex-employee is decommissioned from AD, their credentials are invalid in their on-premises or SaaS applications.  As a productivity bonus, users enjoy SSO to those SaaS apps, instead of managing separate logins. 

To understand what SaaS apps are in use, Cloud App Security is enabled, identifying logins to SaaS portals.  With the inventory of cloud apps in-hand, IT can now configure Azure AD to pass credentials through to sanctioned SaaS apps, and bring them under organizational control.

Once a user is configured for single sign-on for specific Cloud apps, instead of logging in individually to several web portals, they will log in once to their active directory account.  Then, instead of going to the main homepage of the SaaS application, they’ll go to a unique URL that takes him to the same app, but already logged in.  When they terminate, the administrator can simply decommission the active directory account.  When the user attempts to log into that application, they will be blocked just as they will be blocked to corporate data on premises.

Why we won the award…

What technologies we provide users is an important decision, but perhaps the most important question of all is “will they use it?” Enabling’s “Lights, Camera, Adoption!” Organizational Change Management program provides customers with the tools required to successfully drive user acceptance and high adoption of new technologies. Enabling ensures that everyone in the organization is excited to use the new technology with fun and exciting pre-planned deployment plans. Operational Change Management made all the difference with one of Enabling’s local clients. Enabling just finished up working with this new client to deploy Lync Enterprise Voice at over 70 locations with more than 7,000 users. They were able to use the preplanned roll out plans from Enabling Technologies to insure a successful adoption.

Why we won the award…

Our client, one of the nation’s leading architecture and engineering firms, wanted to improve customer relationship management. They required their project managers to take notes of customer phone calls in Dynamics’ CRM. However, their PMs only used CRM to log calls, and rarely kept it open and available. Getting to CRM’s call notes page took eight mouse clicks for each phone call, taking time and effort. Many times, the PMs were unwilling or unable to spend the extra time to comply with procedures. Enabling created ETC CRM Sync, which uses Lync APIs to automatically pop a screen to the customer’s CRM page, where the PM can immediate start taking notes. The integration significantly reduced the time and effort it normally takes to log the call notes in CRM. Not only did Enabling’s solution save their project managers time, but the company has much more accurate reporting and a complete call history for all their clients in CRM.

Why we won the award…

Our client, a global provider of strategic outsourcing services, looked to Enabling for assistance rolling out Unified Communications to their organization. Depending on the time of year and the status of outsourcing contracts, user counts ranged between 7,000-14,000. They needed to replace their older Avaya PBXs and Voicemail systems. Enabling designed and implemented Lync, including Enterprise Voice, and Exchange Unified Messaging. In addition, Enabling used Lync’s APIs to connect to the client’s attendance/absentee tracking system. When an employee called in sick, Lync’s IVR took the call, prompted the caller to enter an employee ID and reason for absence, then inserted the information into the attendance application. Lync would then place an outcall to other potential substitutes and prompted them to ask if they’d be able to cover the shift. This saved FTEs from having to manually handle the process, and enabled quicker coverage for absenteeism. Lync not only proved to be a reliable voice system, but Enabling turned it into an extensible business enabler.
