Skyhigh Review
Once we identified high risk services, we worked with our users to migrate their data to IT sanctioned services, then blocked all high risk services.

Valuable Features:

The ability to identify shadow IT within our environment through proxy log analysis based on risk assessments provided by Skyhigh Registry have been invaluable in helping us reduce our overall data risk

Improvements to My Organization:

Once implemented we were able to identify 100+ high risk cloud services used by our users.  Once identified we worked with our users to migrate their data to IT sanctioned services, then blocked all high risk services.

Room for Improvement:

Sometimes the console performance is slow and updating custom attributes can be cumbersome as you have to do each attribute for a cloud service individually, the click the popup box to continue. 

The console performance is sometime slow, meaning that switch screens or generating reports can sometime feel sluggish.  Data and graphics takes time to load in the browser, and also performance can depend on which browser you are using. 

There is a customizable part of the SkyHigh global registry called custom attributes.  We use these attributes to identity and record details of our own interactions with the cloud service to show which we are reviewed, which services are approved, blocked, sanctioned, etc..  Entering information into these custom fields requires you to confirm changes for each field individually, a UI improvement could be to add a save or update button to the site instead of doing each field individually.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
