Enterprises are experiencing a fundamental shift in the way their employees and customers consume technology. The influx of personally owned devices, ubiquitous high-speed internet connectivity and cloud-based applications is redefining the enterprise network. This transformation is happening in nearly every vertical and region, and it is sometimes referred to as a dissolving network perimeter, but in reality, it is an expansion of the traditional enterprise network through mobility and cloud applications. The traditional IT infrastructure that enterprises have built is being extended as companies embrace cloud applications such as Office 365, Google Drive, Box, Dropbox Amazon Web Services, Oracle, and Salesforce.
In this book we explore the security challenges posed by the use of cloud apps and services and the new cloud security technology that addresses these challenges, known as Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) solutions.
