Shadow IT is scary! But maybe letting people “go rogue” is a good thing. Join industry thought leaders for a contrarian viewpoint and lively discussion on how to let people use their favorite cloud apps while protecting corporate networks and sensitive data from threats. Learn how they’re using big data to gain security visibility and come away with practical advice for enforcing cloud policies.
This will be Netskope’s first appearance at RSA, as the company launched from stealth in October 2013 with $21 million in funding from The Social+Capital Partnership and Lightspeed Venture Partners. Most recently, the company announced Netskope Active, the industry’s only platform that provides context-aware cloud data loss prevention (DLP), encryption, and anomaly detection in real time for any cloud app, whether the app is managed by IT or not. The quarterly Netskope Cloud Report was also just released, which revealed that most organizations underestimate the number of cloud apps running in their environment by 90 percent, and 77 percent of cloud apps are not enterprise ready (see infographic).
Netskope also recently launched the Cloud Risk Estimator, an online tool that estimates an organization’s cloud app risk level based on an individual’s answers to a quick ten-question survey. IT directors, CISOs and CIOs can get their estimate at https://www.netskope.com/cloud-risk-estimator/.
