Man standing in between buses

Get a better grip on your cloud usage

Cloud Consumption Service gives you visibility into your organization's cloud usage. The software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution empowers you to meet and anticipate the needs of your internal clients, while reducing risks and costs. 

This service is joining with Cisco CloudLock

The Cisco Cloud Consumption Service is now retired. Its capabilities are being integrated into Cisco CloudLock, a 100% cloud-native Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB). Cisco CloudLock can help you gain visibility and control over your cloud environments, from SaaS to PaaS and IaaS.
