In our 2018 Trends in Information Security report, we outlined a concept we referred to as the ‘identity-aware perimeter.’ The essential idea is that as new architectures such as cloud, containers, mobility and IoT take hold, controlling access to resources will increasingly need to rely on identity as an alternative to purely network-based approaches focused more on ‘where’ you are than ‘who’ you are. By combining identity with user and entity behavior and risk scoring to gate access, Preempt fits squarely within this trend, which we think could be one of the most interesting and powerful to hit the infosec market in years. Preempt has few direct competitors, and its initial challenge will be finding ways to distinguish itself from vendors in adjacent categories such as adaptive multi-factor authentication (MFA), advanced threat protection, user and entity behavior analytics (UEBA) and cloud access security brokers (CASB), to name a few. Forging a new security category is never easy,
Cloud Access Security Brokers are one of the fastest growing security technologies today because they provide cloud service visibility, data security, threat protection, and compliance. CASBs are an effective and easy way to mitigate the top cloud security threats and security practitioners look to trusted CASB providers as strategic partners to help advise on key cloud security decisions.
Whether you are leveraging the cloud for software as a service (SaaS), infrastructure as a service (IaaS), or platform as a service (PaaS), cloud security is a mandatory cost of doing business. In June 2016, Gartner issued a press release identifying the top information security technologies and included cloud access security brokers (CASBs) at the top of that list. Protecting your data and IP in the cloud is not an option.
Knowing that an ROI for a CASB could be longer term, how do you quickly quantify the additional value a CASB provides so that it gets a high priority in your already stretched information security budget? This white paper helps you to build a business case by walking you through the cost considerations and payback of a CASB. It demonstrates that a CASB provides stronger cloud protection at a lower cost than traditional security processes and tools.
As the cloud continues to be adopted for a wide range of applications and data, it is critical to mitigate risks, increase visibility and implement control over all cloud offerings through an integrated security solution. To learn more, download this infographic.

For most organizations, compliance is a bottomless pit of cost and effort. Too many infrastructure components and configuration points, too much data and too many places to put it—there are just too many places for threats to hide.In this session, Forrester Vice President and Principal Analyst Andras Cser shares how to prioritize security and compliance efforts. Specific topics include: - How your auditors are behaving; - Why risk-based prioritization is the only way to find threats; - The importance of context; - Forrester’s recommendations and best practices. Watch this webcast and learn how to make your organization’s journey to the cloud as safe as possible.

Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASBs) serve as a critical control point to ensure the secure and compliant use of cloud apps and services. Cloud service providers typically maintain a shared responsibility policy for security—they guarantee the integrity of their service infrastructure, but the customer is responsible for securing actual app usage. In addition to the growing cloud security challenges organizations face to safeguard data and protect against threats in the cloud, total volume of cloud app adoption is accelerating, with most of it being done by business units and employees without approval or security oversight from the IT organization. As a result, CASB functionality has become so critical that by 2020 it is projected that 80% of enterprises will use a CASB solution. (Gartner)
CASBs provide CISOs with a critical control point for cloud service visibility, security and compliance. Use Gartner CASB frameworks to support continuous cloud service discovery, adaptive access, verification, protection and the prioritization of CASB evaluation criteria.
Leveraging cloud technology enables your enterprise to be more agile and competitive while significantly reducing costs. However, there are risks associated with these benefits. Getting new capabilities quickly is worth far less if it means exposing vulnerabilities that result in regulatory compliance violations and fees, loss of intellectual property (IP), loss of customer data, or damage to your reputation, brand, and future business.
Enterprises often treat information security technology as an insurance policy against the potentially devastating costs of not deploying it. From that perspective, your security technology’s ROI is determined by the time it takes for a breach—one with costs equal to or greater than your investment—to occur. Your ROI could be immediate. Or it could be longer term. With that in mind, it is hard to justify yet another security technology, but a move to the cloud suggests that you should.
