From Shadow IT to Visibility, Control and Success
You know the story well. The cloud is the answer to everything IT. But what about risk, compliance, governance and smart business management? Does your organization have the visibility and control you need to manage risk, ensure compliance and uncover opportunities?

"...The Cloud is part of a larger IT industry transformation (along with mobile, wireless, social and big data). The last time the industry went through a major growth platform shift was around 25 years ago with the advent of the PC (and related technologies)" (Source IDC, Oct 2012)

While Gartner reports that 79% of enterprises use SaaS and that Cloud is the top priority for CIOs, the number one barrier to broader adoption, according to Morgan Stanley, is security (cited by 42% of respondents). Add to that concerns over compliance and cost management, and it is clear that the market is young and evolving.
IT was once the main provider and gatekeeper of applications, devices and network access. Today, however, a Shadow IT environment hangs over every organization as end users adopt new cloud services, accessing them from anywhere on any device, often without IT or any other governance.
We’ve studied this existence of Shadow IT and the results are startling:
Shadow IT Cloud Usage is at LEAST 10x The Size of Known Cloud Usage
as reflected in this table Skyhigh Discovery Summary, Q42012-Q12013
Unfortunately, today’s management and security products just don’t have the visibility to find,
understand or control Cloud service usage and risk, leaving IT flying blind.
What if you could:
Do this across the whole enterprise?
Bring your company’s entire cloud usage out of the shadows?
Wouldn’t you be the hero then!
That’s why we built Skyhigh.
