Every country has a different kind of business eco-system. The way environment present in the forests create the eco-system of a forest, in the similar fashion; the business communities across the continents also create this “business ecosystem” as a well.
International mercantile law decides the flow of the trades between two continents. In the later run, countries across various continents form their own groups in order to create a business advantage framework/platform for a group of business people. This is where the real quest or the shift of powers starts taking places. 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 an access to certain parties. If you are setting up a business across two continents, then two set of laws are applicable.
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 or Cloud Access Security Broker 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).
When we judge it on the terms of the socio-economic impact, then we find that there are three stages.
Second and Third Stages
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 need of firewall increased manifolds with each evolution. The reason was quite simple – with each evolution, number of users was increasing and the network was proliferating itself in terms of persons, external partners, and equipment. Cloud can be 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. This 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 eco-system designed for a business. In the next step, we compared the technical status of Asian countries and western world in the terms of IT evolution and cloud networking. We can see a huge difference between the stages, and 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.
