Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB)

A Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) is a system working between cloud service users and cloud applications to monitor all activity and enforce security policies. A CASB can offer a variety of services, including but not limited to monitoring every action of the users, warning administrators on specific actions that are seen as potentially hazardous, enforcing compliance to security policies and taking automatic actions for malware prevention. These services fall under the umbrella of Shadow IT (Cloud Services in use) and Shadow Data (user behaviour within these services)

IP Performance’s CASB service offering is an API-centric CASB which uses a direct API to the cloud services. It is fast, non-intrusive and focuses on detecting, analysing, managing and preventing user activity. It benefits from cloud technology scalability and speed and can seamlessly integrates with major cloud applications.

IP Performance partner with Symantec to provide CASB services. We can also offer a free CASB audit, with detailed reporting, so that customers can test drive the service before deciding whether to subscribe. Click on the partner logo below for more information.
