Applications continue to migrate to the cloud and your employees are now on the move everywhere. Mobile devices are becoming the norm and the traditional perimeter is shifting. New standards for secure transformation to the cloud are being set to enable secure access to the web. This is accomplished with what is known as a web proxy.
To ensure secure access, CYQUEO recommends two web security solutions that follow the security approach from the cloud for the cloud to extract the best possible performance and continuous scalability.
What is a Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB)?
Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB)
Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) is a service or software that secures user access to applications in the cloud. CASB analyzes, logs and controls the communication between the user and the applications and is able to report and block suspicious activities.
Cloud access security brokers provide visibility into cloud application usage across multiple platforms and ensure that communications between users and applications follow company-specific policies.
With a CASB solutions, gain unprecedented visibility into cloud and web usage, as well as managed and unmanaged apps. Assess and manage the resulting risks. The solution provides extensive functionality to enforce company-specific policies to protect sensitive data. Detect and block malware and phishing attacks and improve the user experience for employees on the road and in the home office, remote offices, and branch offices worldwide.

There are many cloud-based solutions on the market today. When choosing your cloud security, look for these 5 elements:
- The solution should be developed in the cloud
- Get inline security and fast user experience through service-edge cloud architecture
- SSL verification protects against threats at scale
- Zero Trust Network Access eliminates the risk of allowing remote users to access the network
- Operational excellence
Microsoft 365 is and will continue to become the new standard in companies. The biggest challenges in the introduction and in existing O365 environments lie in the interaction between network and performance. Work with applications and files that previously took place exclusively locally now puts a strain on the corporate network.
With Microsoft’s recommendation to ensure direct Internet transitions for Microsoft 365 for high-performance access, the concept of new web security solutions stands for a significant increase in performance and user satisfaction.
