Brendan O’Connor, CEO of AppOmni, said, “AskOmni epitomizes our commitment to advancing SSPM. This first SSPM AI assistant redefines how users interact with and secure their SaaS environments, exemplifying AppOmni’s dedication to innovation and industry leadership. Our OmniScience team is harnessing the power of AI to operationally simplify SaaS security for organizations. We will continue to redefine the landscape of SaaS security, offering users unprecedented insights, proactive threat intelligence, and efficient remediation tools.”
Upon chat initiation by an administrator, AskOmni intelligently probes the environment with contextual analysis, providing comprehensive insights into identified issues. Its proactive approach assesses risks, prompting immediate action in high or critical/urgent scenarios with clear explanations.
For example, with its ability to stitch together context from disparate data points, AskOmni can notify administrators about issues caused by overprovisioning of privileges, taking into account access patterns, sensitive data, or compliance requirements, and guide them through the remediation process. Beyond typical threat notifications, AskOmni alerts administrators to new threats, explaining potential consequences and offering prioritized remediation steps.
Security administrators can benefit from AskOmni’s proficiency in handling sensitive data, ensuring awareness of risks related to sensitive information, such as PHI and other critical data. Engaging with AskOmni anytime, users receive real-time insights, threat occurrences and tailored remediation support. And when administrators require remediation code, AskOmni generates scripts tailored to their needs, streamlining the resolution process.
AskOmni is available today as a tech preview and will be rolled out in phases in 2024. Organizations interested in the capability can visit here to learn more, request a demo, or run a test drive.
