It is designed to assist admins who are not security experts and offers companies an easy button to remediate SaaS risk.

With respect to the extension of its SaaS offerings, AppOmni stated that its platform would now offer integration with and enhanced SaaS security for – The Atlassian suite (Jira, Confluence, BitBucket), Docusign and Zendesk.
Additionally, AppOmni expanded its posture capabilities to provide coverage for enterprises in their business-critical applications. The extension is spread across GitHub and its Microsoft 365 solution to include Exchange Online and SharePoint.
Brendan O’Connor, founder and CEO of AppOmni, stated that today’s SaaS security market has been growing rapidly with organizations transitioning to the cloud and SaaS applications, realizing the need to have a shared responsibility model for SaaS security. Quoting an AppOmni research, he stated that about 55 percent of companies had sensitive SaaS data, inadvertently exposed to the anonymous internet, requiring neither a username nor a password for access. This exposes a critical risk that every organization must remediate.
SaaS vendors are responsible for providing secure products, but SaaS customers need to use and manage those products responsibly. We’ve built AppOmni to help companies manage, secure, and monitor their many SaaS platforms, without adding additional workload for their security and IT teamsBrendan O’Connor, founder and CEO of AppOmni
