    The Answer: Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB)

    As enterprises follow the flow of data to the cloud, it becomes quickly apparent that maintaining control of sensitive data is often a difficult task. Decision makers in enterprise IT need a solution that will bring their situation back into balance – enabling cloud adoption without loss of data control. A newer segment of technologies that Gartner calls "cloud access security brokers" (CASBs) has emerged in recent years as an enabler of critical, meaningful and deeper enterprise cloud adoption.

    Today, CASBs can take different forms. Increasingly, a well-planned data privacy and protection program for the cloud incorporates CASB capabilities. No matter what stage of cloud adoption that an enterprise is in, a thorough vetting of the different CASBs available will be important to address key security issues, including data residency concerns, industry compliance, visibility on cloud usage and internal security best practices.
