Obsidian has built deep integrations with leading SaaS-based communication and collaboration platforms that organizations are increasingly relying on to get remote work done.

  • Application misconfigurations that violate security best practices
  • Risky user behavior that exposes accounts to takeover and misuse
  • Account compromise, data breaches, and insider threat
