The explosive growth of enterprise mobility and bring your own device technologies is putting immense pressure on IT teams to monitor and control cloud application usage, fueling the growth of cloud access security broker (CASB) solutions. A CASB is a security platform that resides between cloud service users and cloud apps to monitor all activities and enforce security policies and mandates. The software solution can be on-premises, cloud-based, or a hybrid deployment.
A CASB solution helps IT and security teams identify, mitigate, and remediate insider threats, compromised accounts, and privileged user threats in trusted cloud services. It enforces data-centric security policies including encryption using keys, contextual access control, and digital rights management. As a part of compliance, CASB identifies sensitive data in motion or at rest in cloud services and enforces data loss prevention policies to comply with industry regulations and internal policies.
CASB solutions govern all cloud usage in the enterprise, whether accessed from the corporate network, remotely or from a mobile app or sync client.
