Cloud security software protects data, access, and networks by securing connections between users and cloud-based SaaS offerings. Companies utilize the tools to enforce policies, monitor access, and protect both information stored within cloud applications and information transferred through cloud applications. These products provide secure access points, such as sandboxes and gateways, for approved users to launch and run cloud applications in a protected environment. Administrators can manage governance, set permissions, and monitor usage of those accessing the applications. Many cloud security products provide encryption and data loss prevention features to further secure documents and data stored within cloud applications.
