Users operating outside the organisational security umbrella present a significant security vulnerability especially when confidential data is being hosted or shared on unmanaged platforms. Shadow IT, for example using unsanctioned cloud applications for data sharing, or send emails containing corporate data via personal accounts can significantly increase corporate risk.
Creating policy around data usage is a costly and time-consuming process. Shadow IT can render these policies ineffectual if they operate outside of the security span of vision and control. Implementing Cloud Access Security Broker technology (CASB) enables IT teams to expand their security policy’s scope allowing security teams to better enforce internal security policies
