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)

This paper provides an overview of the benefits of outsourced security solutions such as managed security services. The managed security services option saves money, improves the network security posture, and maximizes the efficiency of existing corporate resources.
In This Paper
• Internal technology services that lack resources, rigor or efficiencies are prime candidates for the cloud
• Understand the business and regulatory requirements around the data to be moved to the cloud
• Know your cloud provider’s security and privacy commitments, and what responsibilities you retain
Regardless of whether your data resides on-premises, in the cloud, or a
combination of both, you are vulnerable to security threats, data breaches,
data loss, and more. Security is often cited as a concern for organizations
who are migrating to the public cloud, but the belief that the public cloud
is not secure is a myth. In fact, the leading public cloud service providers
have built rigorous security capabilities to ensure that your applications,
assets, and services are protected. Security in the public cloud is now
becoming a driver for many organizations, but in a rapidly evolving
multicloud environment, you must keep up with changes that might
impact your security posture.
