CLOUD ACCESS SECURITY BROKER (CASB)
Organizations are adopting a series of both managed and unmanaged cloud-based applications. At the same time, we have users’ devices moving outside of corporate control. The result is a big security and compliance concern that traditional on-prem security controls cannot solve. As a result, most organizations have a requirement for a Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) solution. The objective of CASB is to enable the on-going adoption, use and delivery of SaaS cloud services by the GC departments. CASB will enable this by:
Enhancing the security posture of client services, applications, and data as they are transposed into public cloud environments
Enabling full visibility and monitoring of cloud environments to prevent, detect, and rapidly respond to cyber threats
Ensuring confidentiality, privacy, and safeguard data according to local policies and regulations.
The core pillars of CASB capabilities include, and are not limited to:
Visibility: A Consolidated view of cloud services landscape; users, sanctioned applications, unsanctioned applications and cloud application risk registry
Data Security: Prevent unwanted activity based on policy, data classification, user activity monitoring and enforcement
Threat Protection: User and Entity Behaviour Analytics (UEBA); anti-virus protection, malware identification and remediation; threat feed intelligence and collaboration
Compliance: Enforcement of cloud compliance standards (PIPEDA, PIC-DSS, etc.); Zero Trust access, Adaptive Access Control (AAC) and custom DLP policies pertaining to data protection.
Multi-mode Next-Gen CASB deliver management, security and Zero-Day protection. CASBs dynamically adapt to deliver protection for known and unknown data leakage risks and malware threats, on any app. Multi-mode CASBs have dual architectures and can operate in agent-based or agentless mode. Agentless mode enables rapid deployment, and is fully interoperable with existing infrastructure such as Secure Web Gateways.
