Manned by data scientists with backgrounds in military cyberintel, CloudLock’s CyberLab works to bring you the latest trends, threat prevention tips, and cyber intelligence. With the largest customer base in the market, our data scientists are able to aggregate anonymized data points across more than 101,000 apps, 10 million users, and the 1 billion files CloudLock monitors daily, to uncover deeply nuanced patterns and provide cutting edge updates to help organizations securely leverage the cloud.
This Just In From The CloudLock CyberLab
On average, organizations have over 550 unique user-enabled, third-party, oAuth-connected cloud applications active within their environment. By enabling these apps – some which have excessive access scopes – users allow them instant access to their corporate environments- often including permissions to view, edit, delete, and externalize corporate data.

In order to figure out exactly how widespread this issue has become, the CyberLab tracked how many Oauth-connected apps an average user enables access to across all organizations. Here are the shocking results:
