CASBs provide a solution to many of the security problems posed by the use of cloud services – both sanctioned and unsanctioned. They do this by interposing themselves between end users – whether they are on desktops, the corporate network or on mobile devices connecting using unknown networks – or by harnessing the power of the cloud provider’s own API.

The capabilities and functionality of different CASBs vary significantly, but at a minimum, Gartner suggests that CASBs should offer organizations:

  • Visibility into cloud usage throughout the organization
  • A way to ensure and prove compliance with all regulatory requirements
  • A way to ensure that data is stored securely in the cloud
  • A satisfactory level of threat protection to ensure that the security risk of using the cloud is acceptable
