Identity Integration with Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASB)
Centrify Identity Service: The Unified Identity Platform for CASB Solutions
According to industry analysts, Identity as a Service (IDaaS) is quickly becoming the de facto standard for securing SaaS apps across the enterprise. As users and devices have moved outside the firewall and IT control, identity, in particular IDaaS, has become the new perimeter. By injecting enterprise grade authentication and security policies into these cloud-based resources, IDaaS protects the organization from risks not addressed by today’s perimeter and endpoint tools. IDaaS can be easily coupled with another technology that greatly assists in providing a complete layer of cloud security — Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASB). These cutting edge cloud security tools leverage IDaaS to provide inside-app visibility, governance, data protection and a host of other essential security features.
Extending IT Security Controls to Cloud Applications
Centrify partners with CASBs to provide the first critical steps in enabling secure SaaS applications. By driving the authentication process through Centrify, CASBs utilize the necessary information about users, their devices and their location to effectively manage access to and monitor user activity within cloud apps.
Most businesses today are leveraging a number of SaaS applications like Salesforce.com, Office365, Dropbox, Box, Google Apps and many more. And employees are increasingly accessing those apps through their own devices from outside the corporate network. While this accelerates business activity, it can also increase risk when not managed properly. CASB solutions are designed to address those risks through:
Comprehensive application visibility after authentication
Post login monitoring of user behavior within SaaS applications
Behavior anomaly detection
Data risk analysis
Real-time data loss prevention
CASB solutions typically deploy in minutes and require no access to logs, no changes to network configuration, no browser agent installation and no service disruption. And SaaS infrastructures are strengthened through the consolidation of multiple types of security policy enforcement.
