Uncover shadow data lurking in the cloud with the industry’s first integrated cloud security solution that combines the best-in-class data loss prevention (DLP) and cloud access security broker (CASB) technologies from Symantec.
Cloud Access Security Brokers are one of the fastest growing security technologies today because they provide cloud service visibility, data security, threat protection, and compliance. CASBs are an effective and easy way to mitigate the top cloud security threats and security practitioners look to trusted CASB providers as strategic partners to help advise on key cloud security decisions.
Whether you are leveraging the cloud for software as a service (SaaS), infrastructure as a service (IaaS), or platform as a service (PaaS), cloud security is a mandatory cost of doing business. In June 2016, Gartner issued a press release identifying the top information security technologies and included cloud access security brokers (CASBs) at the top of that list. Protecting your data and IP in the cloud is not an option.
Knowing that an ROI for a CASB could be longer term, how do you quickly quantify the additional value a CASB provides so that it gets a high priority in your already stretched information security budget? This white paper helps you to build a business case by walking you through the cost considerations and payback of a CASB. It demonstrates that a CASB provides stronger cloud protection at a lower cost than traditional security processes and tools.
A new survey commissioned by Palo Alto Networks and
conducted by Enterprise Strategy Group explores why enterprise
IT leaders are embracing CASB products, where they are using
them, and what capabilities are most important to them.

Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASBs) serve as a critical control point to ensure the secure and compliant use of cloud apps and services. Cloud service providers typically maintain a shared responsibility policy for security—they guarantee the integrity of their service infrastructure, but the customer is responsible for securing actual app usage. In addition to the growing cloud security challenges organizations face to safeguard data and protect against threats in the cloud, total volume of cloud app adoption is accelerating, with most of it being done by business units and employees without approval or security oversight from the IT organization. As a result, CASB functionality has become so critical that by 2020 it is projected that 80% of enterprises will use a CASB solution. (Gartner)
CASBs provide CISOs with a critical control point for cloud service visibility, security and compliance. Use Gartner CASB frameworks to support continuous cloud service discovery, adaptive access, verification, protection and the prioritization of CASB evaluation criteria.
Leveraging cloud technology enables your enterprise to be more agile and competitive while significantly reducing costs. However, there are risks associated with these benefits. Getting new capabilities quickly is worth far less if it means exposing vulnerabilities that result in regulatory compliance violations and fees, loss of intellectual property (IP), loss of customer data, or damage to your reputation, brand, and future business.
