Cloud Access Security Broker
As cloud applications experience widespread adoption by both enterprises and individuals alike, many business units and individuals have begun to acquire or utilise cloud services to improve their productivity without the IT team’s awareness.
Enterprise IT teams now face tremendous security challenges with the increase of “shadow IT” and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) in the workplace. There is a growing risk of malware being introduced into secure business networks through unmanaged devices, as well as potential internal threats where employees may be sharing sensitive business data.
ViewQwest’s Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) service provides enterprises with the data protection they need. Securing data at rest in the cloud, we provide increased security and visibility into the workings of cloud application usage for your organisation. Our service provides additional controls for your IT team to set policies based on the type of device used to access the data, the individual’s access rights and where employees access the cloud applications.
How It Works
What is a Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB)?
Coined by Gartner, CASB refers to service or a software tool that sits between an enterprise’s on-premise infrastructure and the cloud service provider’s infrastructure. It enables organisations to increase their control and visibility of cloud access, meet compliance and regulatory standards, increase data security and threat protection.
