Cloud Application Visibility & Control

Netskope logo

Netskope™ is the leader in cloud app analytics and policy enforcement. Only Netskope eliminates the catch-22 between being agile and being secure and compliant by providing complete visibility, enforcing sophisticated policies, and protecting data in cloud apps. The Netskope Active Platform™ performs deep analytics and lets decision-makers create policies in a few clicks that prevent the loss of sensitive data and optimize cloud app usage in real-time and at scale, whether IT manages the app or not. With Netskope, people get their favorite cloud apps and the business can move fast, with confidence.

Find

See all cloud apps running in your environment and assess their risk. Get details like compliance certifcations, security and audit features, business continuity capabilities, and legal terms that make an app enterprise ready or not. Quickly measure spend on unsanctioned apps and identify redundancies.

Understand

Drill into activity- and data-level usage details. Answer questions like "Are any unauthroized users downloading PII from any of our HR apps?" or "What sensitive content do we have in our sanctioned cloud storage app, regardless of when it was uploaded?" Dectect anomalous behavior that could signal compromised credentials, non-compliant behavior, or even malware. Create activity audit trails following a suspected event.

Secure

Rather than block apps, enforce granular policies like "Block sharing if its to someone outside the company" or "Encrypt any PII found in our sanctioned cloud storage app". These policies let you say "Yes" while addressing the real risks. And don;t forget to catch users with automated message to create transparency. Let them talk back by reporting a false positive or entering a justification.

THE NETSKOPE ACTIVE PLATFORMTM: REAL-TIME CONTROL OVER ANY CLOUD APP, WHETHER IT MANAGES IT OR NOT
Netskope™ is the leader in safe cloud enablement. Only the Netskope Active PlatformTM provides discovery, deep visibility, and
granular control of sanctioned and unsanctioned cloud apps. With Netskope, IT can direct usage, protect sensitive data, and ensure
compliance in real-time, on any device, and with the broadest range of deployment options in the market.
THE NETSKOPE ACTIVE PLATFORM
CLOUD APP
DISCOVERY AND
EVALUATION
Discover all cloud apps, whether sanctioned or "shadow IT"
Include cloud apps that are running on-premises, remote, or on PCs or mobile
Evaluate and score apps on enterprise-readiness, as measured by security, auditability, and business continuity
Evaluate those apps' risk based on your organization's usage of them
Make risk-based decisions about whether to standardize on, and migrate users to, certain apps
VISIBILITY OF
CLOUD APP
CONTEXT AND
USAGE
Drill down into user identity, e.g., user, group, device, browser, geo-location, and time
Understand the app, e.g., app, app instance, or app category
Ascertain cloud app activities, e.g., "download," "upload," "share," "edit," or administrative activities, as well as with
whom content was shared, if applicable
See content details, e.g., content type, file or object name; and DLP profile, if applicable
Perform e-discovery of content existing at rest within an app, including against a DLP profile
ANALYTICS FOR
MONITORING,
ANOMALY
DETECTION
Run deep analytics on user behavior, pivoting around all of the above visibility parameters
View user behavior and activity against baselines to uncover anomalies
Analyze cloud app performance, e.g., uptime, latency, and SLA adherence
Perform forensic analysis on user activity leading up to an incident or breach
CLOUD
DATA LOSS
PREVENTION
Create relevant DLP profiles for your cloud apps, including personally-identifiable information, Payment Card
Information, electronic Personal Health Information, and more
Base your DLP profiles on industry-standard data identifiers and rules and incorporate rich context (apps, users,
time, location, and user activities) into your DLP policies
Discover content at rest already resident within your apps and take action such as change ownership,
quarantine, or encrypt
Set DLP policies that take effect in not just one app, but across an entire category or globally, if you need them to
Ensure that your DLP policies can be enforced in real-time before a data breach occurs
REAL-TIME
POLICY
ENFORCEMENT
Enforce granular, specific policies on any of the visibility parameters or DLP profiles described above
Set policies once and have them enforced in real-time in any app, at the app- or category-level or globally
Enforce policies whether or not you manage, or even have administrative privileges, to the app
Enforce policies in real-time, before an undesired event or behavior happens
Coach users on policy violations to educate them about risky behaviors and to create transparency
DISCOVERY VISIBILITY GRANULAR CONTROLWHITE PAPER 5
DISCOVER ALL CLOUD APPS, WHETHER SANCTIONED OR SHADOW IT
To discover all of the cloud apps running in your organization, Netskope relies on a combination of its Cloud Confidence Index™
(CCI), a repository of thousands of enterprise cloud apps, and algorithm-based traffic analysis that discovers unknown apps. This
gives you confidence in knowing what apps your organization is dealing with and lays the groundwork for further analysis and
policy-setting. Beyond discovering apps, Netskope informs you of the enterprise-readiness score of each app based in its security,
auditability, and business continuity, as well as combines that score with your specific usage to come up with a risk score specific
to your environment.

SEE APPS AND USAGE IN CONTEXT WITH NETSKOPE ACTIVE VISIBILITY
Netskope Active Visibility provides not just information about apps and users, but complete visibility into how the apps are used
within your organization. You can quickly drill down to view the apps or app instances that are being accessed, by whom, the
number and duration of each app session, where people are when they access the apps, what devices and browsers they are
using, what app services they are consuming, what discrete actions they are taking (log in, modify data, download content, upload
content, share content, administrative actions like escalation of privileges, etc.), what content type and file or object name they
are dealing with, whether it is deemed sensitive given your DLP profiles, and where and with whom it is being shared. Moreover,
we normalize those activities, so you can get one consistent view across app behaviors, and can use that single truth to enforce
one simple policy uniformly across all relevant apps instead of having to set policies app by app. For instance, "share" and "send,"
"download" and "save," and "edit" and "change" can each mean the same thing across different apps. Imagine that for the more
than 150 different cloud storage apps in the market, of which a dozen or more could be in use your organization, you'd have to
take a swivel chair approach and analyze app after app. And that's just for cloud storage. Netskope normalizes all of these user
activities across more than 50 categories of apps so you do not have to understand each app and map its activities to understand
