We’ve added support for single sign-on with Okta, including the availability of Nudge Security in the Okta Marketplace. This enterprise-ready feature is available to all Nudge Security customers without requiring a subscription upgrade or otherwise paying any "SSO tax," which runs counter to our product principles. 

Read our documentation to learn how to configure SSO with Okta, or learn more about how you can expand your Okta coverage by integrating with Nudge Security.

Nudge Security has released a new API to help you manage SaaS security and governance across your entire security ecosystem. 

You can use the API to automate critical security tasks, break down data silos between different tools, and centralize SaaS security data to make sure your entire team is working with the same information. For example, you can:

  • Ingest Nudge Security data into your SIEM to correlate it with other datasets and generate events.
  • Send Nudge Security data to external ticketing systems like ServiceNow or Jira.
  • Add custom attributes to an app in Nudge Security based on context from another system, such as “renewal date” or “cost center.”
  • Easily orchestrate actions in other tools using third-party automation platforms like Tines, Torq, and

See our API documentation for more information on API functionality, recipes, and samples.

Search results from Nudge Security’s main dashboard now include apps with no associated accounts at your organization, making it easier to evaluate apps before your organization begins to use them. 

Now, you can access security profiles for apps outside of your organization, including:

  • App info: App category and app description
  • Organization details: Corporate location, legal terms, and hosting details
  • Security program: Certifications and security links related to the vendor’s public support for security engagement, such as their terms of service, privacy policy, corporate security page, and status page
  • Authentication: Authentication methods the vendor supports, including supported methods of SSO
  • Supply chain: SaaS services used by the vendor
  • Breach history: A summary of any known breaches related to the vendor

We’ve released a new dashboard to help you visualize and share the progress you’re making toward key SaaS security and governance metrics. 

With the new dashboard, you can:

  • Visualize your progress over different time periods as you work towards important SaaS security metrics.
  • Identify the highest-impact opportunities to bolster SaaS security and governance at your organization.
  • Share your progress with stakeholders and easily communicate the value of your work with print-ready reports.

Check out today’s blog to learn more about these key metrics and how Nudge Security can help you improve them.  

Nudge Security has released new app health statuses showing the operational state of the SaaS applications in use across your organization. Now, security and IT teams can see an at-a-glance view of the operational health of your organization’s SaaS applications and swiftly identify if a SaaS service is experiencing disruptions.

Learn more in today’s blog.

We’ve released new functionality to help you understand and address your company’s exposure to a recently disclosed Google OAuth vulnerability, including a new default notification rule and a new filter view to help you discover existing accounts. Now, all Nudge Security customers will receive alerts automatically when employees create new shadow Google accounts. Additionally, you can view a list of all the shadow Google accounts at your organization by visiting the Google Workspace app overview page, clicking on the Resources tab, and filtering by “Account alias.”

Read our blog post to learn more about the vulnerability and how our new functionality can help.

Nudge Security has introduced a new app directory to streamline the process of onboarding employees to SaaS applications. Now, security and IT teams can share a directory of approved SaaS apps with employees, making it easier for users to request access to apps that are in compliance with corporate guidelines and have already cleared security review and procurement processes. 

To get started, enable the app directory under Organization Settings and invite users to sign up for Nudge Security accounts with Personal View set as the user role. Note: Administrative privileges are required to change these settings or approve access requests for new users.

We've added a new dashboard to help you understand what AI tools are in use at your organization and who is using them.

Now, you can: 

  • See your organization’s AI usage and adoption trends at a glance.
  • Find out how different business units are using AI.
  • Identify which employees are the most prolific AI tool adopters.
  • Understand which applications are using AI functionality within their solutions.

Read today’s blog to learn more or check out our interactive demo below.

We’ve released a new playbook to help you equip your employees to engage with AI tools safely. Using the playbook, you can find all the AI tools your employees are using and nudge them to review and accept your AI acceptable use policy. (Note that administrative privileges are required to view and run the playbook.)

With this new functionality you can:

  • Discover which AI tools are being used, and by whom.
  • Share your AI usage policy as soon as users create AI accounts.
  • Automate collection of policy acknowledgement and questions.
  • Guide your employees to use AI tools safely and securely.

We’ve released a new playbook to automate the process of removing abandoned accounts. Now, you can reduce unnecessary risks by minimizing your attack surface and eliminate wasted SaaS spend on unused accounts. Using the playbook, you can:

  • Choose a list of applications to audit all at once, including apps your users may have forgotten about.
  • Collect input from your workforce at scale to identify unused accounts.
  • Delegate the work of removing unused accounts to app owners. 
  • Track your progress toward eliminating wasted spend and unnecessary risk.

Learn more in today’s blog.

When Nudge Security identifies abandoned accounts at your organization, you may need help from a user with administrative privileges for that app to delete them. To help you identify users with admin privileges, Nudge Security automatically designates a technical contact for each application, starting with the first user of that app. You can also reassign technical contacts manually as needed.

Now, Nudge Security has added the ability to nudge technical contacts to assist with deleting or suspending abandoned accounts and reclaiming unused licenses. The technical contact will receive a list of abandoned accounts and instructions to confirm once they have performed the appropriate actions. Once they confirm that the accounts have been removed, the account statuses will be updated automatically within Nudge Security.

Nudge Security has added new ways for you to identify and track whether your employees’ accounts are still active, enabling you to delete abandoned accounts, reclaim unused licenses, and clean up orphaned data. 

Now, when you nudge users to ask if they’re still using an account, their answers will automatically apply account statuses within Nudge Security. In addition, for applications provisioned through SSO, Nudge Security will now automatically mark accounts as inactive after 90 days of inactivity. 

To visualize this information, we’ve added a graph displaying account statues on each application’s overview page that can be changed manually or updated automatically in the following ways: 

  • Deleted - User has responded to a nudge saying, “Account has been deleted,” or the account has been marked as deleted through the SOC 2 access review playbook or employee offboarding playbook
  • Active - User has responded to a nudge saying, “I’m still using it” or there is still activity in the SSO provider
  • Access revoked - Account access has been removed through the employee offboarding playbook
  • Abandoned - User has responded to a nudge saying, “No, I’m not using this”
  • Inactive - App is provisioned through SSO and the account has had no activity for 90 days

We’ve just released a new playbook that guides you through complete employee offboarding in alignment with Google and Microsoft best practices and automates common SaaS offboarding tasks, so you can transition employees securely and completely every time. 

Now, you can:

  • Streamline employee lifecycle changes with a step-by-step playbook that gives you automated workflows and a single system of record for SaaS offboarding. 
  • Set remaining employees up for success by transitioning access to critical resources and accounts. 
  • Avoid business disruptions or surprise bills by making sure all of your departing employee’s SaaS accounts and integrations are disabled, deleted, or transitioned. 
  • Secure corporate resources quickly and easily by revoking OAuth grants, disabling accounts, and resetting passwords directly within the Nudge Security platform.

Check it out in the interactive demo below, and read more about it in today’s blog.

We’ve just released the ability to revoke OAuth grants for Google Workspace and Microsoft 365 directly within Nudge Security. This new feature builds on the OAuth risk scores we delivered earlier this year by making it faster and easier to respond to risky OAuth grants. We’ve also added more context to our OAuth overviews to help you understand the permissions a grant has authorized. When Nudge Security shows you an OAuth grant with overly-permissive scopes, you can revoke it in just two clicks. 

With this new functionality, you can:

  • Detect, investigate, and revoke risky OAuth grants without switching between different environments.
  • Easily clean up OAuth grants for departing employees during IT offboarding.
  • Swiftly quarantine a breached app in your SaaS supply chain by identifying and revoking active OAuth grants.

Check it out in the interactive demo below, and read more in our blog post.

We’ve released a new feature to give you more visibility of groups at your organization and their privacy settings, along with how and when they’re being used to create shared accounts. 

The new group analysis functionality allows you to:

  • Identify the groups in use at your organization and discover any accounts that have been created using that group
  • Check which users can see a group’s emails, which gives them the ability to reset passwords for any accounts set up for the group
  • Ensure each group has appropriate privacy settings

Learn more about the security risks of using groups for SaaS access in our blog post.

We’ve released a new view to show the history of all the nudges your organization has sent in one centralized page, making it easier for you to follow the messages you’re sending to employees. You can also see the nudge history for each individual application at your organization. 

With this new view, you can:

  • See all the nudges that have been sent to your users, along with when, why, and who sent them
  • Find out whether users have seen your nudges yet
  • Track your users’ responses to queries, such as why they’ve signed up for a new application
  • See how long ago users were nudged so you can determine whether they need additional outreach

We’ve just released a brand new Slack integration to help you reach employees right where they’re working. 

With this new functionality, you can:

  • Send nudges to users in Slack, so users can respond directly from the Slack app
  • Track users’ responses within your Nudge Security dashboard
  • Receive Slack messages based on your custom notifications, such as when a new breach affects your organization’s supply chain or a user signs up for a new application

Take a tour of the new functionality below:

Learn more about the power of nudging with Slack in our latest blog post.

Today, we’ve enhanced our SaaS access management support and Azure AD integration with a new automated playbook to streamline the process of onboarding applications to Azure AD SSO. 

With this new playbook, customers and trial users can:

  • Track which of your organization’s apps have been added to Azure AD SSO, and which ones haven’t.
  • Prioritize onboarding efforts by identifying which of your unenrolled apps are already integrated with Azure AD.
  • Kick off an automated workflow to enlist the help of each app’s primary admin and track their responses, rather than hunting them down individually.

Read more about how Nudge Security supports SSO onboarding, including this new functionality, in our latest blog post.

We’ve just released a new automated playbook to make running SOC 2 access reviews with Nudge Security even easier. 

Now, customers and free trial users can:

  • Capture and classify all in-scope SOC 2 assets, starting with smart app categorization to speed up your process.
  • Easily identify users associated with your SOC 2 assets and verify that they still need access on a regular basis.
  • Generate a print-ready report of your SOC 2 access review to demonstrate a repeatable process for auditors.

Here’s an interactive tour of the new feature:

We recently added a new attack surface dashboard, so you can readily monitor your cloud and SaaS attack surface as it changes. 

Leaning on our security expertise and experience, we organize the data we discover about your SaaS estate and supply chain into key focus areas, including:

  • External-facing SaaS apps and domains (what attackers can see)
  • SaaS apps that commonly store corporate IP and sensitive data
  • Critical cloud and software supply chain infrastructure
  • Corporate social media accounts
  • And, well, much more…
