Cloud application auditing and security company, SaaSID, has announced its partnership with big data and business analytics company, EMC Greenplum.

EMC is a global leader in cloud computing, enabling the world's largest organisations to store, manage, protect and analyse their information: transforming their operations. In July 2010, EMC acquired Greenplum, a vendor of database technology that is optimised for large scale data warehousing and business analytics.

SaaSID's software provides organisations with a simple way of provisioning, controlling and reporting on cloud-based application use, to extend corporate information security, identity management and governance to the browser. All user interaction with applications managed by SaaSID is provided in a detailed audit trail, to help organisations to maintain regulatory compliance when they adopt cloud-based applications.

SaaSID Cloud Application Manager can be quickly implemented for existing cloud-based applications without requiring any recoding. Its application onboarding features allow rapid management and monitoring whenever new browser-based applications are rolled out to employees.

Commenting on the EMC Greenplum partnership, Ed Macnair said, "As the developer of Cloud Application Manager, we are delighted that SaaSID has been invited to join Catalyst, the EMC Greenplum Analytics ISV Programme. Our browser agent provides extremely granular control over browser-based applications and captures every event in a visual audit trail. While increasing visibility of activity in the cloud, this quickly generates a lot of data, so partnering with the expert in large scale business analytics, EMC Greenplum, adds value to our customers and theirs."

EMC Greenplum is currently writing a book, "Information is the new Oil", with chairman, Peter Hinssen, a thought leader on technology's impact on society.
