Advantage

Unlike Firewalls, CASBs allow us to execute granular controls on security policies, in a few words, it is not limited to the well-known Allow-Deny, but depending on the application or web service that is used, it offers us a variety possible actions within it (for example: upload a file, post, change permissions, among others.).

One of the great virtues that they provide us with is compliance with regulations even though the applications or services are outside their perimeter and direct control. Exemplifying directly with the control on personal devices, which connect directly to the application or web service outside the company. It also provides threat prevention, preventing malware from spreading through cloud applications, thanks to real-time antivirus analysis and sandboxing for unknown threats.
