A Critical vulnerability discovered in Mozilla's popular Bugzilla bug-tracking software , used by hundreds of thousands of prominent software organizations, could potentially expose details of their non-public security vulnerabilities to the Hackers. So it's time for developers and organizations that use Bugzilla open source bug tracking system to upgrade to the latest patched versions – namely 5.0.1, 4.4.10, or 4.2.15 .

6 Ways to Simplify SaaS Identity Governance

This presents a huge challenge for centralized IT teams who are ultimately held responsible for managing and securing app access, but can't possibly become experts in the nuances of the native security settings and access controls for hundreds (or thousands) of apps. And, even if they could, the sheer volume of tasks would easily bury them. Modern IT teams need a way to orchestrate and govern SaaS identity governance by engaging the application owners in the business who are most familiar with how the tool is used, and who needs what type of access.  Nudge Security is a  SaaS security and governance solution  that can help you do just that, with automated workflows to save time and make the process manageable at scale.
