SaaS Application

A SaaS Application is a special type of Service that is NOT hosted in the customer environment. Instead, SaaS applications are hosted by the SaaS vendor in the vendor’s data centers, typically made available through public and private cloud environments. Application traffic does not flow though an Access Tier; instead, Banyan has a special enforcement called IDP Chaining for SaaS Applications.
