How It Works
To discover the unknown, discovery must be done at the user level. To achieve this goal, Snow agents are installed on endpoints, and a browser extension is enabled to capture usage for over 8,000 and growing licensed and free applications identified with our market-leading Data Intelligence Service. Snow also provides the option to collect usage data for dozens of common applications using SaaS API connectors and provides a generic API connector for uncommon applications.
Identify your risk
The growing use of SaaS applications not vetted by IT can pose huge risks such as unexpected bills, SaaS sprawl and security issues. Most organizations are missing a critical element to their SaaS governance strategy – visibility over actual application usage for both paid and free applications, sanctioned and unsanctioned. Snow uncovers shadow SaaS usage by detecting which users are accessing free and unsanctioned applications through our browser extension.
Manage SaaS sprawl
Nearly 50% of organizations cite application sprawl as the biggest problem in managing SaaS. Snow helps organizations save time and cost by reducing the number of applications and vendors to manage. To quickly visualize opportunities for application rationalization, Snow discovers free and licensed applications in use, and then normalizes and categorizes applications with our market-leading Data Intelligence Service.
Rightsize and optimize subscription costs
SaaS subscriptions are complicated to track and manage due to the number of subscription levels which are often based on features used and the devices used to access the application (e.g., smartphone vs laptop). Snow helps organizations effectively rightsize subscription levels and remove unused licenses by gathering and analyzing application component usage details. With these actionable insights, SAM professionals can minimize SaaS application costs.
