Microsoft Cloud App Security (MCAS) has been rated as the number 1 leader CASB product in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant in 2019. As part of Microsoft’s cloud security stack, it provides full integration with other M365 security products, such as ATP, Security Center, Defender ATP and Azure Sentinel. It provides deep visibility and control of SaaS-related traffic and activities and flexibile SOAR capabilities to enforce the organization’s security policies.

The diagram below is a one-page view of the core MCAS components and how other security controls interact with it. Azure Sentinel in particular can play a significant role in correlating MCAS alerts with other security products and allow for a centralized location for security orchestration tasks.
