MVISION Cloud – A Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) that accelerates business
The job of a cloud access security broker is to provide visibility and control over data and threats in the cloud to meet enterprise security requirements. This is done through a three-step process:
1. Discovery: The CASB solution uses auto-discovery to compile a list of all third-cloud services, as well as who is using them.
2. Classification: Once the full extent of cloud usage is revealed, the CASB then determines the risk level associated with each by determining what the application is, what sort of data is within the app, and how it is being shared.
3. Remediation: After the relative risk of each application is known, the CASB can use this information to set policy for the organization’s data and user access to meet their security requirements, and automatically take action when a violation occurs.
CASBs also offer additional layers of protection through malware prevention and data encryption.
