Ploy's February product update

We've got a lot of exciting new features to kick off month 2 of 2024 that we're sure you're going to love, let's jump into it.👇

📝 Usage Reporting

We've taken our usage reporting to the next level this month by leveraging your IdP to detect application sign-ins on a more granular level, giving you a high level overview of which employees are actually using the tools you've purchased, as well as opportunities to reduce your spend and potential attack surface area.

You're also able to with 1-click send out surveys to a selection of users to confirm usage and automatically deprovision their accounts (via groups or direct integration).

💪 Codify your IT processes with Playbooks

We've made a small change to Flows this month that we think will have a big impact on helping IT teams scale their manual and ad-hoc processes and that's ability to create playbooks 🎉.

Playbooks are simply workflows that require a manual trigger to execute, allowing you to automate manual and ad-hoc processes such as:

  • Resetting a users password and email it to them, whilst also notifying your security team
  • Syncing data from your HRIS to AD/Entra
  • Break glass permissions, temporarily giving someone access to an application and then automatically revoking that access after a period of time.
  • Access audit for movers within the company (e.g. ensure they have access to all the tools they need).

👥 HiBob + Lucca HRIS Integrations

We've also given the workflows a much needed face lift and improved the UX to make it easier to navigate, especially with the amount of new actions we've added in.

🔒 RBAC + Audit Logs

As our product matures and grows we naturally get access to and process a lot more data for our customers. Part of that means ensuring you're able to properly limit the scope of data and actions your IT & security teams are able to perform in Ploy as well as get introspection into every action taken within Ploy.

To this end we've released the ability to configure per RBAC as well as view audit logs all with in Ploy. These are located at the moment in the settings tab of your Ploy account and only visible to admins/owners.
