To protect enterprise data, IT teams have to counter risks on two fronts: (a) insider risks, i.e. threats from within the organization, such as employees handling sensitive data and (b) outsider risks, i.e. those originating from malicious external sources.
Data loss prevention (DLP) capabilities within a CASB (Cloud Access Security Brokers) solution have emerged as the most effective platform to prevent legitimate remote users from accidentally or maliciously sharing business data that could put an organization at risk. Providing visibility into all types of cloud-based applications (SaaS, IaaS and PaaS) running across all types of devices, both managed and unmanaged, is a prerequisite for securing business data against insider threats. Add-in real-time access control, and threat protection for managed apps, and IT has the full toolset needed to fast track cloud adoption while de-risking breaches caused by internal users.
