Comprehensive DLP to secure your most sensitive data

Prevent your sensitive data from loss or exposure

Traditional DLP is limited

Today you face a catch-22: You want to allow cloud services and access to the web, but by doing so you risk the loss of sensitive data. According to the Ponemon Institute, security leaders believe that more than 30 percent of their business data is now in the cloud. At the same time, the cost of data loss incidents in the cloud continues to rise with widespread impact ranging from company brand damage to cost to notify affected parties and recover systems.

DLP is an obvious approach to address the problem of data loss in the cloud and web, but traditional technology approaches have several challenges.

• Inaccurate detections and false positives, leading to constant tuning and manual analysis
• Not architected for today’s cloud and web, forcing IT to backhaul data or live with a large and growing blind spot
• No coverage for mobile and remote users, missing as many as one-third of potential data violations

Netskope DLP protects and prevents the loss of sensitive data in the cloud. Netskope DLP is the most accurate and precise DLP in the market today, with the ability to discover sensitive data in sanctioned cloud services and en route to or from any cloud service or website, whether users are on premises, remote, on a mobile device, or accessing from a web browser, mobile app, or sync client. Our comprehensive DLP detects sensitive data using 3,000+ data identifiers across structured and unstructured data, support for 1,000 file types, metadata extraction, proximity analysis, fingerprinting, exact match, optical character recognition, and more.

Key Features

Comprehensive DLP

Unlike other CASBs that have basic DLP and create too many false positives, Netskope DLP protects sensitive data in the cloud and web with accuracy and precision.  Netskope DLP inspects thousands of sanctioned and unsanctioned cloud services and websites. Sensitive content is detected across 1,000+ file types across structured and unstructured data, using 3,000+ data identifiers, metadata extraction, proximity analysis, fingerprinting, exact match, and more.

  • Control sensitive data in and en route to and from all cloud services and websites
  • Get the highest degree of accuracy with fingerprinting and exact match
  • Further increase accuracy with keyword dictionaries, global data identifiers, and more
  • Target DLP policies using context like user, group, device, service, and activity
Full visibility

Detect DLP violations across all of your cloud services and websites with an all-mode architecture capable of covering all cloud and web traffic whether your users are on premises or remote, using a web browser, mobile app, or sync client. This includes discovering sensitive data at rest in sanctioned services and en route to and from cloud services, sanctioned and unsanctioned, and all web usage.

  • Detect violations in sanctioned or unsanctioned services and websites
  • Gain visibility whether users are on premises or remote, using browsers, sync clients, or mobile apps
  • Go beyond content by inspecting metadata, hidden fields, and comments
  • Find violations in structured and unstructured data in webmail, social media posts, and instant messages
Incident management

Respond quickly and thoroughly to cloud and web service policy violations with closed‐loop incident management. See a comprehensive view of each incident to perform detailed forensics and make informed decisions. Ensure end-to-end management with comprehensive workflows, assigned owners, and process checkpoints.

  • Closed-loop administrative and remediation workflows
  • Detailed forensics for a comprehensive view of alerts
  • Event-by-event incident history
  • Customizable role-based access controls
DLP integration

Netskope DLP integrates with your on-premises DLP so you get the most out of your existing investment. You have the choice of detecting data violations and enforcing controls entirely in the cloud or funneling cloud violations to your on-premises DLP and incident management systems via secure ICAP.

Netskope Cloud DLP

Protect sensitive data in cloud services

This demo showcases Netskope Cloud DLP and its advanced, enterprise features. The use case spotlighted here is FINRA compliance and reducing risk of sensitive data leakage via social media, webmail, and cloud storage services.

Top use cases

Predefined DLP

Take advantage of our compliance templates such as Payment Card Industry Information (PCI), protected health information (PHI), and personally identifiable information (PII), or use our simple wizard to create your own custom template.

Custom RegEx

Netskope Cloud DLP supports regular expressions (RegEx) as a way of matching to your DLP rules. Once you have your RegEx created, Netskope lets you validate it on-the-fly to save time. You can combine RegEx with your data identifiers and use Boolean operators and proximity to zero in and make your DLP accurate and efficient.

Exact match

Guarantee precise accuracy by validating the presence or absence of the match result of an identifier against the data set provided by the user. For example, a list of retail coupon codes formatted like credit card numbers but not valid credit card numbers. A credit card match result present in this data set will be ignored and false positives reduced.


Protect sensitive data accurately by looking for exact or partial content matches on data sources and documents that are fingerprinted to create a unique classification.

Custom dictionary

In addition to providing 3,000+ predefined data identifiers, Netskope Cloud DLP supports custom keyword dictionaries that are ideal for tailoring inspection for your specific use case. For example, bring in a list of your competitors, customer names, or any info that is in scope of the data you want to inspect.

Optical character recognition

Extend your DLP policies to images and scanned documents with Netskope’s optical character recognition (OCR) capabilities.
