Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB)

Enforce your security policies and address compliance requirements on cloud applications and platforms.

Enforce policies in the cloud.

As your enterprise shifts to the cloud, the need to protect your data becomes more important by the day. A cloud access security broker (CASB) is the gatekeeper between your on premise and public cloud infrastructure, helping your business address cloud service risks, enforce security policies, and comply with regulations. This gives you the critical tools to prevent, discover, and respond to threats.

With one of the largest IP networks in the world, Verizon knows that network security is critical. That’s why we monitor over 61 billion security events each year (on average). We also know the importance of finding a valuable partner. That’s why we’re teaming with CASB vendor Netskope to provide CASB solutions for your business.

What is a Cloud Access Security Broker?

A cloud access security broker (CASB) acts as a gatekeeper of internet traffic between your on-prem infrastructure and cloud provider. It helps you consistently enforce security policies, secure sanctioned and unsanctioned cloud services, protect sensitive data across the cloud and web, and stop the most advanced online threats.

How does a Cloud Access Security Broker work?

CASB solutions work as a gateway between cloud service consumers and providers, applying and enforcing security policies as cloud-based resources are called. The value stems from the ability to identify high-risk applications and users, and other key risk factors across cloud platforms—a blind spot for some businesses.
