As a CASB (Cloud Access Security Broker) provider, you are a key enabler of a safe and effective transition to the cloud across all industries. What’s more, as the proportion of cloud-based IT assets and services grows, attracting increasing volumes of malicious activities, organizations are seeking to take a more proactive role in securing their applications and data, wherever they may be, driving demand and creating growth opportunities.
To succeed, your CASB solution must be efficient, rapid and highly accurate when identifying and qualifying risks, and allow the development of appropriate mitigation strategies. The foundation for this, and the key differentiator for your solution, is detailed visibility into cloud app usage.
To effectively monitor and secure traffic between a customer’s approved cloud service providers (SaaS, IaaS, PaaS) and users connecting with either managed or unmanaged devices, CASB solutions need real-time traffic intelligence in the form of Next Gen Deep Packet Inspection (NG DPI).
This intelligence can also be used to ensure regulatory compliance for an organization’s use of cloud services, and support attack surface discovery. The performance of your solution therefore depends on the level and quality of traffic flow data to which it has access.
Enea’s Qosmos ixEngine® is an embedded NG DPI engine that delivers the detail and quality of traffic intelligence that enables application-level monitoring and reporting, allowing your CASB solution to identify and assess potential risks more effectively, raising overall performance and providing the differentiation that will set you apart from other providers.
Qosmos ixEngine provides deep contextual data about applications, users, data, devices, files and flows. This data also supports the development of extended CASB security services, such as DDoS protection, DLP, and malware detection. Offering such services can increase your revenue and boost customer satisfaction and loyalty.
