Key use cases
Enforce data loss prevention (DLP) policies across data in the cloud
McAfee’s content engine automatically classifies sensitive information and enforces controls to remove or quarantine it in the cloud while also preventing data loss via cloud-based email and messaging.
Prevent unauthorized sharing of sensitive data with the wrong people
Detect granular file and folder permissions, including all owners, editors, and viewers, and enforce collaboration policies in real time by downgrading or removing permissions and revoking links.
Block sync/download of corporate data to personal devices
Use contextual access information, including device operating system and management status to enforce access policies that prevent the download of sensitive corporate data to untrusted devices.
Detect compromised accounts, insider threats, and malware
Leverage machine learning to build behavior models that detect active account compromise and insider threats, and apply signatures and sandboxing to identify malware in the cloud and stop threats.
Encrypt cloud data with encryption keys that only you control
Encrypt your sensitive data in the cloud using encryption keys you control while preserving functions such as search. No third parties, not even the cloud provider, can access your encrypted data.
Audit and tighten the security settings of cloud services
Monitor and audit the security configuration of cloud services and get suggested modifications to improve your security posture based on industry best practices, such as auditing and tightening user permissions.
Understand cloud services in use and their risk profile
View a summary of cloud services in use and the risk profile of those services with a 1-10 CloudTrust rating, based on the Cloud Security Alliance protocol, to enforce risk-based policies.

What Is a Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB)?
Cloud access security brokers are on-premises or cloud-hosted software that act as a security control point between users and cloud services to enforce security, compliance, and governance policies, and help organizations extend the security controls of their on-premises infrastructure to the cloud.
Which CASB Deployment Mode Is Right for Me?
There are multiple CASB deployment options to secure users and data across mobile, desktop, remote, and on-premises use of cloud services. Gartner recommends that customers consider a multi-mode deployment CASB solution to cover all their use cases across all users, devices, and services.
