Evaluating SaaS applications using Defender for Cloud Apps

Recently, there has been much talk and gnashing of teeth over what to do about the recent LastPass breach. There is plenty of chatter about wanting to make a change and much discussion about what to actually change to.

As a LastPass customer I’m starting the process of evaluation myself and a handy tool I found to help in the decision process is Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps (i.e. the old MCAS).


If you go into the Discover menu, you’ll find a Cloud app catalog option as shown above.


Enter the name of app you wish to search for and hit Enter.


That should give you a page load of information like that shown above, which you can drill into if you want more details.

Of course, this information should only be part of your evaluation but it does provide a lot in one place for you to reference.
