Cloud_Access_Security_brokers_GartnerIf you haven't already heard the term, Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), you soon will. With just about every enterprise considering or deploying public cloud applications like Office 365, Salesforce, and Box, CASBs are the only solution for closing the security and compliance gaps that have inhibited more widespread adoption of cloud apps in the enterprise. Enterprise adoption of CASBs is in full swing across every major industry.

Since many enterprises are just beginning to get a handle on how these new tools can help them to safely enable cloud apps, we reached out to one of the foremost authorities on the topic , Gartner Vice President and Fellow, Neil MacDonald (@nmacdona). Not only did Neil lead the way in publishing research on the topic, but he and Peter Firstbrook coined the term, Cloud Access Security Brokers, in an early paper on the topic. 

Neil agreed to do a joint video webinar on CASBs, to help shed light on the topic, free of any marketing hype or fluff. The result is an quick and easy to consume on-demand video, that does a great job of covering the most important aspects of this emerging new market. 

Gartner is hosting the webinar - you can check it out for yourself here. Enjoy!
