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.

AWS is the most widely deployed public cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) solution in the world and is a leader in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for IaaS (see "Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service"). AWS offers a large number of built-in security capabilities (see Note 1), and questions on the proper practices for securing workloads in AWS are increasing.1
AWS is a not a "consumer grade" IaaS cloud. It is a market leader, with a portfolio of security capabilities and security ecosystem partners unmatched by other IaaS providers. However, simply moving existing workloads to AWS without rethinking security tools, processes and system management will result in workloads that are less secure than they were when located within enterprise data centers. Conversely, a properly managed and secured workload in AWS will be at least as — and, in most cases, more — secure than in an enterprise data center.
In this report, Gartner offers analysis and recommendations for successful private cloud deployments, including:
Engaging developers to provide the cloud-native deployment services they need in private IaaS deployments
Linking your IaaS private cloud deployment to your DevOps initiative with integrated IaaS/PaaS capabilities
Architecting and designing a full-solution approach to reduce overlap between different tools and constituents
Optimize your business processes in the cloud with a next generation BPM strategy — an intelligent Business Platform (iBP) that implements an on demand, “service as you need it” model.
Take advantage of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) for pure technology - processing, storage, networks with payment based on usage.
Develop and manage business processes using the BPM Platform as a Service (BPMaaS), providing the BPMS tools supported by cloud services.
Work with live business processes used by customers, suppliers, employees and trading partners, using Business Processes as a Service.
