BuzzFeed ensures security compliance with BetterCloud

Challenge:
Unencumbered by legacy systems, it embraced SaaS apps, and G Suite in particular, to scale. But as BuzzFeed’s use of SaaS grew, so did its need for greater visibility into the SaaS applications in its environment.

Solution:

  • Implemented BetterCloud to manage and secure user actions, including bulk updates to Google Groups
  • Automated manual tasks associated with offboarding, replacing a spreadsheet
  • Enforced a password policy that requires users to change their G Suite password every three months
  • Explored third-party applications using the Apps Audit feature

Results:

  • Increased the productivity of the IT department
  • Enhanced visibility into application settings and user configurations across SaaS applications
  • Strengthened security posture
