SaaS Security Survey Report 2021

There is no question SaaS has now become the default system of record, and many companies have yet to update the way they monitor their business-critical apps.

To understand how teams are currently dealing with their SaaS security posture, and what their main concerns are in handling SaaS tools, we surveyed 300 InfoSecurity professionals from North America and Western Europe, in companies of 500+ employees. The survey was completed by an independent survey company in May 2021.

The 2021 SaaS Security Survey Report highlights new research and perspectives from today’s CISOs and security professionals as they reflect on their SaaS app estate this past year and share their planning for the coming year.
