Why Do I Need a Cloud Access Security Broker?
By 2020, nearly every business, school district, and university will have fully integrated the cloud into its day to day operations. This is 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. A Cloud Access Security Broker is a platform that provides visibility and control over 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 Cloud Access Security Broker? It’s becoming clear that Cloud Access Security Brokers are soon going to be the default method of maintaining security, and perhaps the only effective solution as the cloud continues to grow.
