SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading enterprise Software as a Service (SaaS) management platform Cleanshelf, has appointed Michael Lines as their new Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) and Head of Product Security. Michael's appointment will support Cleanshelf's future growth and product launches.
Michael is a cybersecurity and IT industry veteran with a 20-plus year career in information security. During his career, he has served as the first CISO for global organizations FICO and TransUnion, as well as the global CISO for PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PWC) and D+H Ltd.
"Security is the number one priority at Cleanshelf. We want to help companies reduce SaaS overrun so they can focus on critical priorities such as growing their business," said Dusan Omercevic, CEO and Founder of Cleanshelf. "We are thrilled to have Michael on-board. He will be a key person to further solidify our SOC 2 compliant services and strengthen customer information security as they address the explosion of SaaS products used in their organizations."
With the industry's most comprehensive list of cloud-based applications integrated into Cleanshelf, IT leaders are able to fully discover and monitor their organization's SaaS estate by analyzing data pulled from accounting, contract management, and expenses systems on a single platform.
"As companies accelerate their move to both the cloud and SaaS applications, understanding what SaaS products they have and how they are being used is vital to managing this new dimension of risk for companies," said Michael Lines, CISO of Cleanshelf. "I am excited by the opportunity to not only demonstrate Cleanshelf's strong commitment to security but also to help evolve Cleanshelf's services in ways that will help companies better identify and manage the information risk that SaaS products can bring."
Today's enterprise companies average 44 applications per employee and this number continues to grow at a rate of 164% year over year. This rapid sprawl has catapulted SaaS and cloud applications to become one of the largest expenditures for finance teams and inundated IT and Information Security teams with the task of managing and securing these elusive technical assets.
