Secure sensitive information in Workplace by Facebook

Netskope provides data security and compliance for Workplace

Netskope for Workplace

Workplace by Facebook has rapidly grown as the de facto collaboration service in organizations across the world. Workplace allows employees to share, collaborate, and communicate, all in one platform. And with features like a news feed, integration with other cloud services and apps like Box, employees can stay connected and productive from across devices and locations.

Netskope for Workplace offers granular visibility and control over Workplace so that you can secure sensitive data across your organizations while enabling your employees to remain productive. With Netskope, you can place access controls, security policies across specific cloud activities like post or download, or use cloud DLP to protect your organization. Gain a complete view of all users, devices, and activities across Workplace groups, projects, and chats. Scan for sensitive data shared between users (regardless of whether internal or external) and monitor activity. Investigate DLP and activity violations with forensic details and resolve through a single cloud incident management dashboard across Workplace for closed-loop remediation.

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 Workplace regardless of whether your users are on premises or remote. Options include out-of-band API introspection into Workplace as well as forward and reverse proxy modes for real-time policy controls for Workplace.

  • API introspection provides direct, out-of-band connection into Workplace
  • Reverse proxy covers Workplace access from outside your network
  • Forward proxy covers any cloud service, including Workplace by Facebook
  • Different modes can be combined to expand your coverage
Deep context

Netskope gives you a deep understanding of your organization’s usage of Workplace. You can view details such as user, device, location, service, activity, and data, and assess risk by understanding how sensitive data in Workplace is being shared.

  • Understand usage by identity, service, activity, and data
  • Mitigate risk of inappropriate sharing
  • 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, and coach for policy enforcement.

  • Enforce policies across all cloud services and websites based on identity, service, activity, and data
  • Protect sensitive data with Netskope DLP
  • Mix and match policy elements to carve out risk without blocking services
Comprehensive 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 1,000+ 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 Workplace 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
  • Target DLP policies using context like user, group, device, service, and activity
Threat protection

Netskope can quickly detect, prevent, and remediate the effects of cloud threats, which too often evade existing security solutions.

  • Threat protection with unique cloud vantage point
  • Detect anomalies that could indicate an active threat

Top Use Cases

Control access

Detect all access to Workplace, 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 Workplace but restrict other activities such as downloads to protect sensitive data.

Stop threats

Protect your organization from cloud threats such as compromised credentials 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 Workplace with the upload of the same data to a personal cloud service.

Coach users

Make your users part of your Workplace 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 Workplace when they try to use a personal cloud collaboration tool, or warn them about sensitive data handling policies when they try to upload sensitive data to a risky cloud service.
