We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

It gives us visibility into how the data is being used within our cloud environment.It also prevents you from writing data to your Gmail and does not allow you to move your data outside of the corporate system. That is the most important feature for me.There is [a feature] called cloud registry where we can see a risk assessment for the cloud services being used. If we want to add a new cloud service or a new cloud application, we can check into it and do an assessment through the cloud registry.It help us monitor high risk services, blocking them, and also feeding them to our egress points.The risk rating of each cloud application has been very useful. Whenever we discover a new application is use, we are able to quickly determine if this application is safe to use and whether or not we should allow our end users to be able to access it.We have gained a deep insight into our Shadow IT usage as well as the different activities involved in Office 365.Without Skyhigh, we had zero visibility, but now we are aware of so much more.Skyhigh has given us categorization and rating of websites separate from what the web proxy places on the logs.

The biggest challenge we have with McAfee is their cross-cloud support.I would like to see more power being given to the admin. In the sense that in case an employee is facing an issue and they want to configure a service, like attaching an email in Gmail, for example, they should be given the option to make the service request and get that configured on the go.The only thing we have faced is that sometimes, randomly, the portal becomes too slow.Needs integration with other technology ecosystems.Though the Skyhigh Dashboard is processing large amounts of data, the speed of the Dashboard could be improved.It would be nice to be able to get more advanced search functions to filter out data and quickly obtain the data that we need.The tool could improve flexibility with the creation of reports/querying data.The services take some time to load. It would be helpful if the loading time was reduced.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The licensing fees are based on what environments you are monitoring.They definitely charge a huge amount. All the security service providers charge a huge amount.Have a risk-based approach towards pricing.The biggest thing to watch for is the difference in price per monitored user for the different API integrations.Skyhigh provided a FedRAMP solution, tokenization, a better shadow IT capability, and lower cost.
