Expense Reporting In. Shadow IT Out.
However you buy SaaS, Meta SaaS has you covered.
All business cloud applications have one thing in common. Their goal is to provide value in exchange for money. How they collect that money depends upon your organization's procurement policies, and your employees’ compliance with those policies.
Shadow IT is a term often used to describe information-technology solutions used inside organizations without explicit organizational approval. Similarly, "Stealth IT" and "Client IT" describe solutions specified and deployed by departments other than IT. Any way you look at it, unofficial and uncontrolled data flows from illusive software usage makes it more difficult to comply with Sarbanes-Oxley and other compliance initiatives -- including: GDPR, HIPAA, IFRS and PCI DSS.
Even when SaaS is procured in compliance with company policies, there is rarely a single line item on the P&L that identifies cloud application spend. Instead, SaaS is buried inside of departmental budgets, expense reports, and corporate credit cards.
Meta SaaS maintains both PCI and SOC 2 compliance for securely connecting with your expense, accounting, and payment vendors to identify and consolidate shadow SaaS into a single dashboard. From here, you have total visibility of the SaaS you have (licensed, approved or not), so that you can begin the process of reducing costs and eliminating risks.
