The lines between home and work life are blurring these days. As more and more people are working from home, we had a theory that employees might be taking actions to streamline their work life—actions that don’t necessarily take your company’s security into account. Turns out, we were right. See our product tip to learn how to mitigate that risk.
SaaS apps are known for making the workplace more collaborative; file sharing is one of the SaaS features that makes this seamless collaboration, both internally and externally, possible. But what happens when you share a link with a person that you don’t want to have indefinite access to the information? BetterCloud gives you the ability to build a backstop to this problem using a simple workflow.
At the end of January, BetterCloud released File Audits for G Suite, Box, Dropbox, and Slack. This new feature will help you mitigate risks by scanning for sensitive content in existing files that live in your SaaS environment. Check out our article to learn about how you can use File Audits to improve your SaaS environment.
Last week, BetterCloud released 19 new Salesforce actions to help you automate the tasks that Salesforce administrators are concerned about. In this product tip, we show you how to create an onboarding workflow that incorporates some of these new actions.
For this week’s Product Tip, we want to highlight an action that you can take in BetterCloud during your offboarding workflow. This action is the archive user action and adding it to your offboarding workflow will make your life a little easier.
This week we have an onboarding trick for you that allows you to create a G Suite user, edit that user, and assign the user to an OU—all in one automated workflow. Merging these actions into one workflow makes them more powerful. Now when you create a user, Google can be fed a ton of information from the start, which will make ULM easier later.
Forwarding work emails to a personal email account might seem innocuous, but it can introduce security risks. Here’s how BetterCloud can automatically detect and remediate this behavior.
For most people, sharing business documents with a personal email address is done for the sake of convenience, without thinking twice. However, this practice is a headache for IT and security teams who need to know where all their company’s data is and who has access to it. BetterCloud gives you visibility into what G Suite, Dropbox, and Box files are shared with personal emails and allows you to put an end to it. Let our Product Tip show you how.
While BetterCloud has been many IT admins’ go-to solution for automating onboarding and offboarding, what happens when a process-as-written requires some input from an end user, a manager, HR, or another internal stakeholder? With BetterCloud’s Wait for Approval action, you can now request approval or rejection from a user within your directory to run the remainder of your workflow.
Many organizations are unaware of how much money they waste on unused SaaS licenses—until they start manually reviewing the last time a user was active on a given platform. That’s why we announced BetterCloud’s new automated license management functionality at Altitude last month.
