Most organisations have embraced digital transformation by moving data into the cloud such as AWS, Azure, GCP or even Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), however, it is important to ensure cloud infrastructures are as secure as organisations physical sites
Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASB) is software which sits between company’s cloud service users and their cloud applications. This provides security for individual users to ingress into these assets safely and securely.
As we move more to a “work from anywhere” society, employees expect the same access to applications regardless of where they are. CASB allows businesses to provide this access without concessions to their security or compliance, meaning these services can be provided with reduced complexity.
BOM’s offers a cloud hosted CASB solution which applies policies inline on traffic going between end users and SaaS applications. This helps IT take any action necessary before the traffic reaches its destination. Through VMware’s CASB solution, organisations can gain enhanced governance over the discovery and usage of SaaS applications through:
Application Discovery & Visibility
The first step in a security strategy is to determine what is being protected. CASB offers a complete view of all SaaS applications in use along with their associated risk scores.
IT teams can monitor the risk level against the organisation’s risk tolerance, for better governance and auditability.
Activity Control Through Fine-grained Policies
IT administrators can easily and consistently set fine-grained security policies to control the interactions that specific users and user groups can have with a particular application. For example, for a low-risk application, users would be permitted to log in, upload and download files. For a high-risk application, users would be allowed only to upload files.
Security Information & Event Management (SIEM) Integrations
API support to integrate with commonly used SIEM and log analytics tools.
