Securing your move to the cloud

Secure data and ensure compliance in Egnyte

Netskope for Egnyte

With its ability to provide file access and sharing capabilities for both cloud-based and on-premises file storage through an intuitive user interface, Egnyte gives you a great migration path to the cloud. Egnyte has developed a highly secure cloud service, but cloud security is a shared responsibility between cloud providers like Egnyte and their customers. Improper use of a secure platform like Egnyte can still put your organization at risk. Netskope enhances Egnyte platform security by helping you understand and control risky activities in Egnyte, protect sensitive data, and stop cloud threats.

Netskope offers a full array of deployment modes to provide rich, contextual details around Egnyte usage including user, service, device, location, activity, and content. Automated workflows include options for quarantining threatening files and alerting users with customized coaching messages. We can help you standardize on Egnyte by coaching users to the platform from any unsanctioned cloud storage services being used. With Netskope, your organization can get the most out of Egnyte while staying safe and compliant.

Key Features

All-mode architecture

The unique Netskope all-mode architecture offers you a full array of deployment options to gain visibility and control of Egnyte as well as its ecosystem of connected services, whether your users are on premises or remote, using a web browser, mobile app, or sync client.

Deep context

Netskope gives you a deep understanding of your organization’s usage of Egnyte and of any ecosystem services that share data with Egnyte. You can view details such as user, device, location, service, activity, and data, and assess risk by understanding how sensitive files in Egnyte are being shared.

  • Understand usage by identity, service, activity, and data
  • Distinguish between different Egnyte instances
  • Mitigate risk of inappropriate sharing and public links
  • Focus policies on specific risky activities
Granular control

Only Netskope gives you granular visibility and control over all of your cloud services and websites. Rather than take a coarse-grained approach by blocking services and websites, set your security policies based on identity, service or website, activity, and data. Choose from actions such as block, alert, bypass, encrypt, quarantine, and coach for policy enforcement.

  • Enforce policies across all cloud services and websites based on identity, service or website, activity, and data
  • Protect sensitive data with Netskope DLP
  • Mix and match policy elements to carve out risk without blocking services
Advanced cloud DLP

Netskope DLP protects sensitive data in the cloud with accuracy and precision, with the ability to inspect all sanctioned and unsanctioned cloud services as well as traffic to websites. Sensitive content is detected across 1000+ file types and across structured and unstructured data, using 3,000+ data identifiers, metadata extraction, proximity analysis, fingerprinting, exact match, and more.

  • Control sensitive data in Egnyte and en route to and from all cloud services
  • Get the highest degree of accuracy with fingerprinting and exact match
  • Further increase accuracy with keyword dictionaries, global data identifiers, and more

Top Use Cases

Secure data

Detect sensitive content at rest in Egnyte or en route to or from any cloud service or website with DLP. Define granular policies – based on identity, service, activity and data – to automatically protect your data by blocking activities, restricting access, encrypting data, and more.

Control access

Detect all access to Egnyte, regardless of where your users are located or what device they are using. Apply the appropriate access control policy based on the situation. For example, allow users on unmanaged devices to view content in Egnyte but restrict other activities such as downloads and shares to protect sensitive data.

Stop threats

Egnyte makes it easy to share, but this same capability makes cloud services like Egnyte an attractive target for malicious actors. Protect your organization from cloud threats such as malware and ransomware and also detect unusual data movement or user activity that could indicate the presence of an active threat in your environment.

Prevent data loss

Netskope provides a unique vantage point across all of your cloud services to help you detect data movement that could signal a data exfiltration attempt by an insider. Netskope anomaly detection combined with our DLP capabilities can correlate the download of sensitive data from Egnyte with the upload of the same data to a personal cloud service.

Coach users

Make your users part of your Egnyte security solution. Netskope can provide your users with automated, customized coaching messages to address undesirable cloud activities. For example, you can coach them to use Egnyte when they try to use a personal cloud storage service, or warn them about sensitive data handling policies when they try to upload sensitive data to a risky cloud service.
