The Evolution of CASB: A Modern Approach to SaaS Security by ESG

ESG White Paper

Cloud adoption has become ubiquitous – research by Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) found that 94% of organizations use public cloud services of some sort. On top of that, almost half of organizations surveyed expect more than 40% of their business apps to reside in the public cloud within three years. These trends and the massive scale of unsanctioned cloud applications have made cloud access security broker (CASB) solutions a critical component of enterprise security strategies.

CASBs can provide extensive functionality, but they require different deployment models to address different use cases, making current solutions complex and costly. Palo Alto Networks SaaS Security service offers an updated and modern approach to CASB that includes:

  • Deep visibility and intelligence across thousands of cloud services

  • End-to-end data loss prevention (DLP) to ensure consistent security across the cloud, network and endpoints

  • Tight integrations with other security tools to position CASB as the anchor point for the transition to a secure access service edge (SASE)

Read ESG’s white paper to learn how SaaS Security provides a simpler, more cost-effective approach to CASB.
