Gartner has recognized a brand new market: SaaS management platforms (SMPs), which provide additional capabilities to fill the operational gaps left by native admin consoles. In their first-ever Market Guide for SaaS Management Platforms, Gartner has identified BetterCloud as a representative vendor.
Last month, we released a heavily requested feature: On-Demand Workflows. Think of these workflows as customizable automation sequences (kind of like macros) where you can string together a collection of actions across SaaS apps and press play when you want, instead of waiting on a trigger. Here are a few of the most valuable ways you can use them.
For IT and security professionals, spooky season can feel like a year-round experience. Research shows that insider threats — specifically, those caused by end users — are keeping folks up at night.

Here at BetterCloud, we’ve been working hard to answer the feature requests you’ve told us are important to you. We’re thrilled to announce eight enhancements that we released earlier this month at Altitude, our annual customer conference, in Denver.
Last week, we hosted Altitude, our annual customer summit, in Denver, Colorado. It was our best customer summit yet, with over 140 IT and security professionals attending.

You spoke, we listened. At our annual customer conference last year, the number one feature you requested was activity-based alerts. These are alerts for things like suspicious user logins or the downloading of confidential files. So we built it. So far we’ve released alerts for Okta, Dropbox, and G Suite, with more on the way for Box, Salesforce, and Microsoft. Activity-based alerts are the next frontier for companies securing mission critical SaaS apps. Here’s how they give IT more control and insights than ever before.
If you read our newsletter last week, you saw that we held a contest just for BetterCloud Monitor readers. In the quest to make our first ever Monitor T-shirts, we designed four tongue-in-cheek tees (all IT-themed), and we let readers vote for their favorite one.

Well, Google Cloud Next ‘18 is a wrap! If you missed it last week, here are some highlights from a panel called “Securing G Suite and Beyond: Tales from the Trenches” that we thought would be particularly relevant to our audience.

What important lessons have people learned? Here are five key takeaways, along with some tips and best practices the panelists shared.
Our annual customer conference, Altitude, is happening October 2-4 in Denver, Colorado. We promise it’s unlike any other IT conference you’ve been to. “It says a lot about Altitude that the second I got the email about this year’s conference, I pretty much said, ‘Yeah, of course I’m going to go again,’ said Bjorn Pave, senior director of IT at PopSugar. He shared what makes Altitude a really “rad” IT conference — what he enjoyed the most, his major takeaways, and why attendees are guaranteed to get something out of it.
We are thrilled to announce a partnership with Okta and the launch of the new BetterCloud Connector for Okta. Here’s how this integration will provide a comprehensive solution for managing and securing business-critical data across SaaS applications.
