Cloud Access Security Broker Protects Data and Apps in the Cloud and BYOD
Bitglass is Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) – solution that provides comprehensive security for modern enterprise environments including corporate and BYOD devices. It helps protect companies that use cloud applications such as Office 365, Salesforce, G Suite or ServiceNow.
CASB can track and analyze applications, devices, identities and user behavior across the environment in real-time. For example, it protects against unauthorised data access or data leakage (DLP) and provides zero-day protection against new cloud applications through machine learning and artificial intelligence which analyze their codes.
Bitglass also serves as an alternative MDM solution without needing to deploy agents on private employee devices to ensure corporate security. Sensitive data can be encrypted or masked when downloaded to a mobile device. CASB also selectively deletes corporate data or an entire device in case of its loss.
The competitive advantage of the Bitglass solution is, in addition to zero-day protection across business environments and alternative MDM, the ability to detect shadow IT (when unmanaged applications, e.g. Dropbox are used in the company). It is possible to disable data uploads without the need to completely block unmanaged apps.
- Supervising employees’ secure access to cloud applications – e.g. Office 365, Salesforce, G Suite or ServiceNow (CASB)
- Prevention of IT policy circumvention, and detection of unauthorized applications (shadow IT discovery)
- Endpoint data protection (BYOD, Alternative MDM)
