Best Cloud Security Software

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.

Many cloud security solutions function similarly to secure web gateways and secure email gateways. While they may provide similar access points, they serve to secure entire application ecosystems rather than web browsers or email documents.

To qualify for inclusion in the Cloud Security category, a product must:

  • Provide cloud access governance
  • Secure usage of cloud-based applications
  • Monitor usage for anomalies and unapproved access
  • Protect and/or encrypt data and documents stored in the cloud.
