Effective CASB Tool for Business Eco-Systems

Every country has a different kind of business ecosystem. The way environment present in the forests creates the ecosystem of a forest similarly; the business communities across the continents also create this “business ecosystem” as a well. If an Asian company wants to expand its operational area on a global level, then it is high time for them to take adequate support of technology in the form of Cloud Access Security Broker i.e. CASB tool. 

International Mercantile Law

International mercantile law decides the flow of the trades between two continents. In the next run, countries across various continents form their groups to create a business advantage framework/platform for a group of business people. It is where the real quest or the shift of powers starts taking place. Now, see the same scenario from the perspective of Cloud Security all over again. If you are trading at an open platform, then you are bound to give access to certain parties. If you are setting up a business across two continents, then two sets of laws are applicable. 

Need of CASB Tool for Asian organizations

The definition of insider trading is very different when we check it in Asian countries and European countries. Particularly, when we see China and India as a giant-duo from Asia and compare it with strong economies like the UK and the US up to some extent, then we find that public participation is much higher in developed economies. It means that they want more information. If you have an operational setup ready in Asia and want to expand it with the help of a cloud setup, then CASB is a must-have for you.  

The answer to the question (why it is required?) lies in the fact that most of the Asian countries are in a transitional phase of infrastructure when it comes to this IT evolution. 

But there is a solution! i.e., Cloud Access Security Broker(CASB).  

The Five Steps of IT Evolution

When we judge it on the terms of the socio-economic impact, then we find that there are three stages. 

First Stage 

  • IT for Automation: It was the time when mainframe computers made an entry into the game, and the act of computing came beyond the realms of calculators and others. Now, the world has moved out of this phase. 

Second and Third Stages 

  • IT for Virtual Businesses and IT for Virtual Society: The number of internet users is increasing in India, China, and other and Asian countries. However, it never tells us about the intention of the presence of IT culture in these countries. When we have a look at the first-world countries, we find that IT evolution has reached a level of virtual society. On the other hand, when we have a look at the Asian continent, we find that they are still struggling with the advancement of IT and technology. Now you can understand, Asian countries are expanding from client-server culture to Telecom and WAN culture. Western countries, on the other hand, have passed this WAN barrier, and now they are heading towards Cloud culture. 

CloudCodes’ CASB Tool for Different Eco-Systems

Think about the need for the firewalls in all the five stages of evolution from Mainframe to Mini to client-server, WAN, and finally cloud. The scope and lack of firewall increased manifolds with each development. The reason was quite simple – with each expansion, the number of users was growing, and the network was generating itself in terms of persons, external partners, and equipment. Cloud is considered as a peak or the pinnacle. Now, check it out from the perspective of the first-world and third-world countries. First-world countries always have this well-advanced network, and your cloud system in Asia may not be well-equipped enough. It is the place where you can take the support of CloudCodes and level up the things by covering all those gaping holes that can become a vulnerable security threat when you will move up the ladder. 

We started this compilation on the note of an ecosystem designed for a business. In the next step, we compared the special status of Asian countries and the western world in terms of IT evolution and cloud networking. We can see a vast difference between the stages. If an Asian company wants to expand its operational area on a global level, then it is high time for them to take adequate support of technology in the form of CASB and CloudCodes.
