Bitglass’ CASB (cloud access security broker) can proactively defend against any threat, while other security tools have more of a reactive approach to malware detection and prevention. Oftentimes, months go by without organizations realizing that they have been infected with malware – rather than addressing the problem after the fact, it is best to prevent the attack in real time.
