Cyber security is a complex topic where difficult problems mingle with tall claims. This week, we came across one such from a competitor – “out-of-band real-time security.”
As the economy becomes increasingly reliant on the cloud, preventing threats and leakage is hugely important and the raison-de-etre for a CASB. In order to prevent threats and leakage, the CASB has to be deployed inline to provide real-time protection. But inline deployment is technically demanding and must support access from any device, anywhere. Out-of-band Monday morning post-breach alerts are a lot easier.
One CASB has found a way to make real-time protection easy – deploy out-of-band to generate post-breach alerts, but market it as Real-time API security. In other words, snake oil!
