Key features

SaaS Discovery

Gain full SaaS visibility in minutes.

Discover your entire SaaS attack surface: managed and unmanaged accounts, users, OAuth connections, resources, and more in literal minutes. Be alerted as new SaaS accounts are created—anytime, anywhere, any device. 

Simply connect to Google Workspace or Microsoft 365 to get started with our patent-pending approach to SaaS discovery—zero network changes, endpoint agents, or browser extensions required.
SaaS Identity & Access

Know who has access to what and how.

Amplify your SaaS identity governance and administration efforts with a historical and continuous record of SaaS accounts and users, including first and privileged users. Automate SaaS access reviews for SOC 2 compliance, starting with smart app categorization to accelerate your work. 

Nudge Security monitors MFA and SSO enrollment across your SaaS estate, so you can easily track progress against your onboarding efforts.
Risk Insights

Manage your SaaS security posture with continuous insights.

Conduct SaaS vendor security assessments and prepare for compliance audits faster with our built-in SaaS classification and risk insights, including breach data and SaaS supply chain maps.

Only Nudge Security maps your SaaS supply chain automatically, so you quickly determine if you are in the blast radius of a third- or fourth-party supply chain attack.
Attack Surface

Monitor your attack surface beyond the network edge.

Your modern attack surface extends to every SaaS app, user identity, and OAuth grant used by your workforce to run your products and grow your business. The network vantage point is no longer enough. That’s why Nudge Security discovers and monitors your entire SaaS attack surface as it changes, including your SaaS supply chain, internet-facing SaaS apps and domains, corporate social media accounts, and much more.
Security Nudges

Curb SaaS sprawl at the source—your employees.

Our research confirms what you knew all along: limiting employees’ access to SaaS applications leads to frustration and shadowy workarounds.

Instead, help your workforce to make secure choices with timely, helpful guidance as they adopt and use SaaS. Nudging helps employees flex their security skills in real-world scenarios while freeing time for IT, security, and governance teams. It’s the fastest, friendliest way to scale SaaS security in modern organizations.

Automate your SaaS security efforts.

The last thing you need is another security product that creates overhead for your team. Our built-in playbooks automate workflows for common SaaS security tasks, like initiating SSO onboarding, conducting SOC 2 access reviews, centralizing AWS accounts in AWS Organizations, and more, so you ditch the task lists and spreadsheets.

without Nudge Security

Curbing shadow IT is a manual, disruptive, and delayed forensics process (if done at all).

Employees are frustrated by archaic IT policies. They find workarounds or worse—new jobs.

Spreadsheets are used to track compliance scope, access reviews, SSO enrollment, and more.

Third-party vendor risk assessments are conducted infrequently with stale vendor data.

Employees retain access or leave orphaned accounts when exiting or changing roles. 

with Nudge Security

SaaS assets are discovered and categorized as soon as they are created, anywhere, any device.

Embrace employee-led SaaS adoption without losing oversight or adding overhead.

SaaS security workflows run automatically. Dashboards make it easy to track progress and report.

“Whether they're ready to admit it or not, every security leader is contending with a sprawling mix of cloud and SaaS providers, permissions, accounts, and identities. Until now, this emerging attack surface has been largely invisible and vulnerable to the types of supply chain attacks in the headlines week after week. Nudge Security recognized that securing the SaaS supply chain is one of the core challenges of modern cybersecurity, and that’s why the Ballistic Ventures team was so eager to invest.”
Nicole Perlroth
Best-selling author
“For years, the industry has treated cybersecurity as a technology problem when, in fact, it is humans that play the biggest role in keeping enterprises cyber secure. Finally, Nudge Security has emerged to tackle the hardest soft problem in the industry—human behavior.”
Mario Duarte
Vice President of Security
"Attack surfaces are growing more complex as organizations adopt new cloud and SaaS technologies across a globally distributed workforce. Nudge Security helps provide organizations with increased visibility into today's modern attack surface, and enlists all employees to help protect it."
Hector Aguilar
Fmr. President of Technology & CTO
"I am of the opinion that SaaS sprawl is a good thing, you have to give your team the flexibility to explore and discover new tools that will help them become more effective at their job. Ideally all those apps should be authenticating in a centralized way using an identity provider like Okta, however, in the real world, it is imperative to have mechanisms in place to account, find and manage the sprawling of those apps and nudge users to help secure the flow of information."

“Adversaries are constantly finding new ways to socially engineer employees and attack the vast supply chain of SaaS applications they’re using to gain access to organizations. Every CISO is aware of the challenge they’re up against, and now it’s our job to make sure every CISO knows about Nudge Security and the way they enable employees to be a key part of an enterprise’s defense.”
AJ Beard
VP Applications and IT
Unify Consulting
“Modern CIOs face a difficult balancing act enabling a highly distributed workforce with access to data and technology while trying to control the costs and risks associated with unchecked SaaS sprawl. Nudge Security strikes the right balance and helps modern organizations like ours manage the tide of SaaS sprawl without constraining employees’ abilities to move the business forward.”
Ed Amoroso
Founder and CEO
TAG Infosphere
Former CSO
“Today, every employee acts as their own CIO and can easily reach for a new cloud or SaaS tool to solve virtually any problem. While organizations see massive gains in productivity and employee satisfaction from such unencumbered IT adoption, cybersecurity has been slow to adapt.”
Grant Leonard
“The work that Jaime and Russell did together at AlienVault to build the Open Threat Exchange changed the way threat researchers and practitioners shared intelligence. As a longtime customer, it was a no-brainer for Castra to sign on as one of the first Nudge Security customers. We’re excited about the potential to use this groundbreaking technology to improve service delivery for our customers.”
Chris Doman
Co-founder and CTO
Cado Security
“As more data moves to cloud and SaaS environments, threat actors are turning their sights on assets and user credentials of which security teams may have little to no awareness. Nudge Security has an innovative approach that helps security teams shore up their defenses against cloud and SaaS threats, starting at the critical point of making the unknown known.”

“Even in cybersecurity, people’s attitudes and emotions are strong predictors of their behaviors. Security leaders are setting themselves up for failure when they implement security controls and policies under the false notion that employees will comply unconditionally, regardless of how frustrating or unreasonable they find the experience to be.”
Kunal Anand
“Security teams need to focus on fighting real adversaries, not their colleagues. Nudge Security alleviates the time spent chasing down employees to get them to follow security policies, and it does so in a friendly, automated way that’s much more effective and less stressful for everyone involved.”
Frank Dickson
Group Vice President, Security & Trust
“In today's SaaS-fueled enterprise, monitoring access at the network layer is no longer enough. Context is key, and 'SaaS context as control' becomes the basis for implementing modern identity- and data-based security controls. Nudge Security innovates beyond other cloud and SaaS security technologies by providing SaaS context quickly and efficiently across all applications and user accounts, managed and unmanaged, enabling security and IT professionals to modernize their SaaS governance efforts.”
Damian Tommasino

"I recently had a chance to try out Nudge Security and the experience was amazing! Here is what I found awesome: They made it super easy to get started (configured in 5 mins). There were zero super aggressive sales tactics. Instead of hundreds of alerts, I got to see which ones mattered most right now. There are no heavy handed controls, it's based on 'nudging' users to make better security choices."
