Forrester analyst Chenxi Wang says she's not aware of any similar service as Skyhigh's.
"What they did is essentially productized what people have been doing manually (and not very successfully). I think it addresses an immediate pain point," she commented. "Many enterprises would have need for a service like this, so they can understand better their risks associated with the use of cloud services and begin to manage that risk."
Gupta says he doesn't find it particularly unusual to see companies with "more than 200 cloud services, some more than 1,000" these days.
Skyhigh Networks also disclosed that it has $6.7 million in venture-capital funding, with Greylock accounting for $6.5 million of that.
