Data and applications are offloaded from private data centers, leaving a stack of on-premises security solutions that provide network visibility, access, data loss prevention (DLP), threat protection, and security violation logging.
The adoption of SaaS products in the cloud has moved data from on-premises private data centers to cloud-based operations. Similarly, users are embracing cloud applications widely, as it has never been easier to access these tools at remote locations or remotely.
Additional risks to applications and data at the network edge make tools like CASB essential for cloud-based security.
The explosion of cloud and mobile devices means data and users are outside your on-premises security infrastructure. While legacy security systems can effectively monitor local network traffic, CASBs take on the task of monitoring access in the cloud and authenticating to a global audience.
Organizations embrace remote work and authorized personal devices (BYOD); the cloud provides access to unmanaged or unauthorized devices that users can authenticate. This reality can create a security gap as data resides in related cloud applications.
With little effort. Without CASB, visibility into many access points is a major obstacle to improving security.
The cloud is taking hold, and enterprises are rushing to adopt cloud-based service models due to their affordability, scalability, and performance. Cloud applications used within an organization are not necessarily the same ones approved by the IT department.
While this non-IT technology use can consume established resources, many industry leaders recognize the benefits of such rogue activity, known as shadow IT. With unmanaged cloud services, you can put critical tools at the forefront of your organization and accelerate adoption. Shadow IT is not a hard-and-fast process for choosing which applications to use in your enterprise.
Still, it does provide a bridge between your IT team and the business that can ultimately enrich your organization for the long term.
