Lumos’ AI-powered App Discovery system helped Skydio create a source of truth for identities and entitlements. For example, Skydio uses Lumos to prioritize the apps that to be added to their SSO provider. With Lumos, Skydio can figure out which apps didn’t have SSO enabled, how many users are using each app and which tools have a lot of unused licenses. Skydio found in Lumos its solution to manage all their SaaS apps — within one platform.
Security + Compliance
With the Lumos AI-based AppManager and Discovery Dashboard, Skydio now has an app inventory, where they can see which apps they’re using and which apps meet their security controls. Skydio uses the Lumos platform to feed their SIEM, which helps them manage governance, risk, and compliance. Also, the Skydio Legal team uses Lumos for third-party risk management. It allows the Skydio IT team to communicate broadly to the organization to say, “these are the apps that we've approved, and these are the apps that people are using.”
Skydio also has a way to detect Shadow IT app purchases. The moment someone purchases an app and then tries to sign in through Google or Okta, the Skydio team is notified and can take quick action. Jeff uses Lumos to prevent redundant app purchases and security reviews for apps that may not meet their security requirements. Also, Skydio found dozens of unused licenses that they were able to reclaim. Lumos is going to pay for itself in the first year.
