Integrate Your Cloud Security Posture with Identity and Access Management
The cloud is one of the biggest challenges an organization’s security teams face today. Between users accessing unapproved cloud services or mishandling data even in approved ones, organizations are in a fix.
Though the identity and access management (IAM) programs help to a great extent, they aren’t enough. This is where cloud access security brokers (CASB) come in and add an extra layer of security. They can be described as a software tool or service that sits between an organization's on-premises and a cloud provider's infrastructures.
Gartner’s experts outline some of the ways where IAM and CASB can complement each other and improve organizations’ security.
