What is CASB?
Why Do I Need a CASB?
By 2020, nearly every business, school district, and university will have fully integrated the cloud into its day-to-day operations. That’s great for productivity and efficiency, but the prospect of so much data floating around in the cloud is daunting from a security perspective. After all, how are CIOs and IT departments supposed to keep track of all the apps, cloud providers, and files employees are using?
Enter the Cloud Access Security Broker or CASB. A CASB is a platform to provide visibility and control across a cloud application and typically unifies a number of security measures used across the cloud to make detection, management, and enforcement much easier to deploy and control.
So why do you need a CASB? It’s becoming clear that CASB is soon going to be the default method of maintaining security and perhaps the only effective solution as the cloud continues to grow.
