  • Cloud is becoming an integral part of modern organizations seeking productivity and flexibility. For higher education, cloud enables online course creation, dynamic collaboration on research documents, and more.

  • I'm frequently asked whether Secure Web Gateways (SWGs) and Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASBs) compete. After all, they're both proxies, they both offer data & threat protection, they're both cloud-based (some SWGs), and both are gradually replacing firewalls in a lot of enterprise environments. Sounds similar, so they must be competitive, right? Actually, they serve as complements for two very...

  • The Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) market has been around for a few years now, with the first CASB vendors hitting the market in 2013. As best as I can tell, the term CASB was coined by Neil MacDonald and Peter Firstbrook of Gartner way back in 2012 in, The Growing Importance of Cloud Access Security Brokers.

  • Have you ever seen a "Pick two out of three” diagram? They present three concepts and force individuals to select the one that they see as the least important. The tradeoffs between convenience, privacy, and security serve as a perfect example of a "Pick two" situation for many mobile security solutions.

  • For many years, credit card companies and retailers ruled the news headlines as victims of breaches. Why? Hackers' profit motives lead them to credit card numbers as the quickest path to monetization. Appropriate data in hand and a working counterfeit card could be cranked out in seconds and used to purchase a laptop or TV at the local Walmart - easy to fence in the local black market.

  • Firewalls have been a stalwart of enterprise network security since the late 1980's. The technology has evolved considerably in the ensuing decades, though the basic premise has remained the same - create a barrier or safeguard between internal networks and external networks. The term "network" is the operative term here - a firewall is only useful when traffic actually flows through it. That's tr...
