A Cloud Security customer story
Main Roads Western Australia
Learn how Main Roads Western Australia boosted visibility and security with Microsoft Defender for Identity Solution from Data#3.
Explore our range of Cloud Security solutions.
Solutions to unlock unprecedented visibility, data security and threat protection for your organisation, providing comprehensive protection for today’s cloud generation across sanctioned and unsanctioned apps.
Today, unsanctioned apps are being used across the board. As shadow IT increases, how are IT teams supposed to secure what they don’t know about? CASB solutions remove these blind spots and takes back control of Shadow IT with complete visibility into where your data resides, where data goes and who has access to it. Understand which apps to sanction, what subscriptions to streamline, and where to enforce controls.
When it comes to employee productivity, cloud apps provide great opportunities to collaborate and innovate, but this also makes them susceptible to inadvertent sharing of confidential data. CASB solutions can identify sensitive data, monitor data at risk, encrypt sensitive content, and enforce policy controls to prevent data breaches.
As most enterprise-grade cloud apps feature built-in security features, malicious attackers are more likely to target user credentials than attempt to break through fortified architectures. Users innocently connecting with malware infected devices can also compromise data security across the wider organisation. CASB solutions use User Behaviour Analytics (UBA) and integrated malware protection to intelligently detect and block malicious activity.
The more you know about your cloud activity, the better equipped you are to protect your organisation. CASB solutions use rich log-based intelligence to quickly investigate any areas of concern, providing easily searched and filtered logs of granular cloud activity by user, app, location or more. Data is presented graphically for fast analysis and even faster decision making.
Whilst the first generation of CASBs (CASB 1.0) helped enterprises secure their cloud, they lacked integration with existing on-premises security investments. Separate islands of security left gaps that could be exploited. CASB 2.0 solutions represents the next generation of cloud app security, which intelligently integrates with your existing security infrastructure, including DLP, endpoint management, web security, encryption, user authentication and advanced malware protection. Not only providing greater security coverage – it also reduces operational complexity and optimises the user experience. Increasingly, more organisations are turning to CASB to secure their entire enterprise.
