A CASB is an on-premises or cloud-based solution that serves as an intermediary between one or more cloud providers and an organization’s on-premises and/or cloud-based security infrastructure. A CASB acts to ensure that the organization’s security policies are executed properly by the cloud provider(s) that are used by the organization. CASBs enable security analysts and others within an organization to determine how cloud applications and services are being used, to identify any non- sanctioned “shadow IT” applications that might have been installed, and to provide insight into cloud-to-cloud operations.
