Cloud Access Security Brokers
“Cloud access security brokers (CASBs) provide information security professionals with a critical control point for the secure and compliant use of cloud services across multiple cloud providers,” Gartner explains. “Many software as a service (SaaS) apps have limited visibility and control options. CASB solutions fill many of the gaps in individual cloud services, including infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) providers.” By doing so, CASBs can help CISOs to better set policy, monitor behavior, and manage risk across the entire set of enterprise cloud services being consumed.
