Eight Ways CASBs Improve your IAM Security Posture 


Strengths of using CASBs


  • CASBs provide visibility, compliance, threat prevention and data security to cloud applications. 
  • CASBs help organizations to adopt CARTA and extend control over cloud-based applications beyond adaptive authentication and authorization.
  • CASBs, combined with IAM and other modules such as security information and event management (SIEM), EMM, and on-premises DLP and UEBA tools together form a holistic and more general-purpose protection mechanism

Weaknesses of using CASBs


  • Due to the lack of secure authentication and authorization of SaaS applications' APIs, CASBs sometimes have to revert to the use of static usernames and passwords to monitor the cloud application, forcing the CASB to be governed.
  • Deep IAM capabilities and the latest identity standards such as OIDC are still not widely supported. Instead, hardcoded integrations to MFA vendors are used to trigger authentication and user confirmations.
  • IAM has moved from protecting on-premises systems to protecting hybrid environments. CASBs, however, are cloud-native and don't protect on-premises IT in the same way they protect cloud services.
