iPaaS is Powerful… But Needs Security
By connecting and sharing data between virtually any type of internal or external resource, iPaaS and Workflow Automation platforms drive consolidation and efficiency. iPaaS and Workflow Automation platforms provide business users with drag-and-drop interfaces that abstracts code and enables anyone to build integrations between the various applications and systems they rely on without requiring a background in coding.
These new development platforms enable both professional and citizen developers to create business and personal productivity automations. But, when using such platforms to unify and consolidate business tools, enterprises are potentially unknowingly exposing themselves to potential security risks:
- Low-code/no-code development results in frequent misconfigurations of the business logic needed within integrations and automations, and may enable leakage of sensitive business data or PII
- Lack of strong access controls could allow internal or external users to exploit low-code/no-code integrations and automations in order to access resources they should not be able to use
- Vulnerabilities in third-party external components that are used within the low-code/no-code integrations and automations can facilitate supply-chain attacks and failed audits
Zenity Keeps You Ahead of iPaaS and Workflow Automation Security Risks
Zenity continuously detects development throughout the iPaaS and Workflow Automation estate, including integrations, automations, connections, data objects and identities. The Zenity platform then evaluates them to identify security and compliance risks and enforce best practices.
Zenity continuously identifies iPaaS and Workflow Automation integrations, automations, connections, definitions, data objects, identities and relationships that exist anywhere in your business – even those created without approval or knowledge of the IT department.
Zenity scans every component created in iPaaS and Workflow Automation platforms and alerts security teams about exposure such as weak access controls, excessive permissions, exposure of sensitive data, “upstream” supply chain security risks and other issues that may turn your platforms into a vector for attack. Zenity also enacts playbooks that can mitigate attacks in real-time without any human intervention.
The ever-growing interconnectedness of business applications requires robust governance capabilities. Low-code/no-code development affords businesses to be agile and create what they need without becoming slowed down by security requirements or developer resources. Zenity enables just that, by creating different governance zones, with full customization of policies, actions and playbooks. Zenity also automatically mitigates risks and responds to changes in the environment and policy violations. Don’t wait for your engineers to fix the problem.
Remove the Risk from Low-Code/No-Code Development
With Zenity, your business can take full advantage of iPaaS and Workflow Automation platforms, while managing the security risks that come with rapid development. Centralized visibility and policy enforcement, combined with support for all major iPaaS vendors – including Workato, Mulesoft, SnapLogic, Jitterbit, Zapier and others – mean that Zenity gives you the flexibility to work with whichever iPaaS solution you wish, without worrying about security risks.
