Cloud Application Security Brokers Will Rule The World
Many well-known web security and content filtering products were designed to service and protect the digital world from web-borne malware some 15 years ago.
Vendors that demonstrate the capability of an enterprise secure web gateway but deliver real-time discovery and analysis of cloud applications by enabling true visibility and demonstrate authentic control will be a formidable force by anyone's measure.
The market has been calling for a service that runs in the Cloud responsible for aspects like authentication, policy enforcement and reporting. Add into that a component that is installed either locally on the network or on the endpoint, or it could be a hybrid combination of both, and you have a heavyweight contender with a lightweight footprint.
