SaaS has many advantages over on-premises software deployments, including lower upfront costs, quick setup and deployment, and accessibility from any device with a browser and internet connectivity. Because of this, organizations rely on SaaS to run their operations. Yet a single misconfiguration of your SaaS could lead to data theft or malicious data corruption. For example, not configuring the requirement for complex passwords can make a brute force attack on a SaaS account login more likely to succeed. Or improper file restrictions may make data available for users who should not have access to it. That is why organizations need a SaaS security posture management (SSPM) solution.

Do CASBs and Cloud SWGs Compete?

By Bitglass  |  March 17, 2021 at 4:37 AM  | 

Full_Logo_Raster.pngI'm frequently asked whether Secure Web Gateways (SWGs) and Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASBs) compete. After all, they're both proxies, they both offer data & threat protection, they're both cloud-based (some SWGs), and both are gradually replacing firewalls in a lot of enterprise environments. Sounds similar, so they must be competitive, right? Actually, they serve as complements for two very different use cases. 

As cloud-based SWG vendors add more capabilities, they are starting to look more and more promising as a direct replacement for a firewall. By that, I mean that for the same use case (network/perimeter protection), you can use either a firewall or cloud-SWG - they are simply delivering network security services via the cloud (in Bitglass’ case, our SmartEdge SWG is a bit different and deploys locally on each user’s device - but you can read more about that approach and its benefits here).
