Scalability Issues


Customer Service and Technical Support

It is excellent and top-notch.

Previous Solutions

No previous solution was used.

Initial Setup

For Shadow IT, it was straightforward. 

For Sanctioned App Security deployment, it was a bit more complex. This was primarily due to the amount of integrations we decided to do with the existing technologies we owned, like DLP, SSO, etc., and because of the size of our cloud application.

Implementation Team

An in-house team.


Very good.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

I don't deal with pricing. Thus, I cannot answer this.

Other Solutions Considered

Yes. Netskope, Bitglass, Adallom, and Skyfence.

Other Advice

Make sure you plan your deployment carefully. Break the project into phases. This makes for more wins sooner, which you can report to your upper management. Develop a good rapport with the team who owns the cloud application, so you can get full cooperation from them.
