The Authoritative Guide to the Top CASB Use Cases
The move to the cloud has not been without significant challenges. Businesses are still deploying legacy security technologies that are designed to meet on- premise challenges. These legacy security architectures cannot meet the needs of the modern cloud with a mobile workforce and portable device environment. Cloud users are faced with a new set of opportunities for compromise, data breach, compliance failure, and loss of confidential information
To meet these unique challenges, a new generation of technologies — called Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASB) — have emerged with the sole purpose of protecting corporations data when embracing cloud applications and services. This new technology introduces new use cases designed to address the most difficult problems in cloud computing. These use cases bring enhanced solutions for visibility, data protection, threat protection, and controls for comprehensive compliance support in order to allow successful and secure cloud deployments. The Lookout CASB platform expands traditional CASB capabilities with strong policy enforcement controls that are placed securely between the cloud providers and the customers that use them. CASB provides a wrapper to protect data and to insulate and isolate users from cloud threats and the inherent risks they bring to corporate networks.
