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.

A recent post in our BetterIT community got us thinking here at BetterCloud: How could we get our users scheduled offboarding without the use of Okta or Zapier, sticking only with Google and BetterCloud? In today’s Product Tip Tuesday, we’re providing instructions on how you can set up offboarding via a Google Sheet, an Apps Script, and BetterCloud. This allows IT admins to set an employee’s last day as their offboard day, specifying down to the hour when offboarding should occur.
This week, we’re back with Product Tip Tuesday to talk about Content Scanning for personally identifiable information (PII). End users have the ability to create content with sensitive data, but it’s difficult for IT admins to get visibility into where that data lives—or worse, if it’s being shared publicly or externally. Learn how BetterCloud’s Content Scanning helps admins get insight into what documents their end users are sharing and if they contain any sensitive PII.
Mergers and acquisitions are notoriously difficult. IT is tasked with a laundry list of post-merger assignments, too. What applications in the technology stack do we keep, and how do we integrate duplicate systems? How do we keep an accurate list of which employees are staying and which are going? How do we avoid technological disruptions to end users and customers? What are the roles for everyone on the newly integrated IT staff? BetterCloud is no panacea for the agglomeration of work required by IT for a successful merger, but there are ways the platform can help.
BetterCloud is committed to helping you implement a least privilege model—a security best practice—in your SaaS environment. Time-based roles allow you to delegate admin access to BetterCloud for a set amount of time, ensuring that users won’t retain elevated access any longer than they need.
