Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB)
Cloud access security brokers (CASB) are on-premises or cloud-hosted software that sit between cloud service consumers and cloud service providers to enforce security, compliance, and governance policies for cloud applications. CASBs help organizations extend the security controls of their on-premises infrastructure to the cloud.
While some CASB capabilities incorporate familiar technologies and approaches previously used to secure data in on-premises applications, CASB is a distinct and differentiated technology from existing security categories such as identity as a service (IDaaS), web application firewalls (WAFs), secure web gateways (SWGs), and enterprise firewalls.
Four Pillars of CASBs:
- Cloud application visibility and risk intelligence for thousands of apps
- Data governance, UBA and policy controls for sanctioned cloud apps
- Real-time user behavior analytics, data security, and threat protection for un-sanctioned cloud apps
- Cloud data encryption and tokenization for regulatory compliant use of cloud apps
