Enabling Cloud Access While Ensuring Security and Compliance
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Tuesday, November 15, 2016 TIME: 4:00pm CET, 10:00am EST, 7:00am PST
The cloud and mobile revolutions have changed the way we work and the very nature of IT. But these advances have also created immense new challenges and risks to security, data protection and compliance.
In order to address these risks the Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) market has rapidly emerged with vendors providing a range of solutions to increase visibility, control and data protection for a broad set of cloud applications. CASBs function as security policy gatekeepers for data going to the cloud, automatically identifying various risks in real time and encrypting sensitive data to make it indecipherable to intruders. CASBs have become an essential security pillar as computing and data moves outside the enterprise, bypassing legacy tools like firewalls. The ideal CASB should enable cloud usage – not block it, and support a wide range of applications from any device, without affecting usability.
However, not all CASBs are the same and organizations need to make sure that the CASB they choose helps to meet their own particular needs.
In this KuppingerCole Webinar you will hear about:
- The cloud governance process needed to ensure compliant use of cloud services
- How CASBs fit into and help with the cloud governance process
- The range of CASB capabilities from cloud discovery, to actionable policy controls and data protection
- The specific features that KuppingerCole believes a complete CASB should possess
In the first part of this webinar, Mike Small, Senior Analyst at KuppingerCole, will describe the challenges that cloud services pose to organizations, as well as a framework for ensuring cloud governance. He will then summarize the key features that a CASB should provide.
In the second part, David Berman, Senior Director of Cloud Security at CipherCloud will discuss and demonstrate the integrated capabilities of a mature CASB solution, and review customer case studies from a range of regulated industries.

Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) are among the foundations of modern digital business. APIs are found everywhere due to a rapid growth in demand to expose and consume APIs to enable new business models and connect with partners and customers, but APIs are also a security risk that businesses can’t afford to ignore.
