Why it matters
green plus

Don't let legacy Zero Trust implementation slow down performance and productivity

As cyber threats continue to rise, enterprise IT security teams are seeking greater visibility and better control over their unique risk landscape to devise a response strategy that scales across clouds, users, devices, applications, and data.

 

While adopting a zero trust security strategy has been a core of many organization security evolution for a while, shoehorning zero trust into a number of existing technology solutions has lead to a slow down in performance and business productivity.

ZTE why it matters

Modern enterprise challenges require a sophisticated implementation of zero trust

Extend network icon

Adoption of multi-cloud infrastructures and hybrid work models means you need to lock down data where it exists and control how it flows.

Leverage cloud threat intelligence icon

Implicit trust-based policies with castle-and-moat defenses means users get unrestricted access and you are left with a widened attack surface.

Checked location icon

Policies with highly restrictive access controls means user productivity is hampered and you need to strike a balance between security and usability.

Streamlined operations icon

Inconsistent policy enforcement across different types of network traffic means you must contend with varying levels of visibility, security, and control.

3rd party integration icon

Legacy security architectures in silos means your organization will suffer from incremental network latency and sluggish performance.

About the Zero Trust Engine

The Netskope Zero Trust Engine
Holistic context-aware visibility. Granular policy definition and continuous enforcement.

The Zero Trust Engine lies at the core of the Netskope One Platform. It decodes and decrypts traffic in real time and continuously gathers risk telemetry about users, devices, applications, and data without impacting the performance if the overall transaction. Utilizing this wealth of information, it delivers highly precise and powerful policy controls that adapt to a changing risk landscape in real time, minimizing the likelihood of risk exposures,while ensuring a fast and reliable user experience.

light blue plus

The Zero Trust Engine is adaptive across three levels:

Context awareness icon
Context Awareness
Broadest and deepest levels of visibility across various contextual conditions that affect the user, application, device, and data
Policy definition icon
Policy Definition
Highly precise and granular policy definition based on AI/ML-driven risk and threat assessment,and adaptive trust scoring
Policy enforcement icon
Policy Enforcement
Flexible, empowering multi-layer policy enforcement accomplished by correlating context with device activities, and known vulnerabilities

Key capabilities

Enhance visibility with contextual insights and precise multi-layered policy enforcement

Without enhanced visibility across a number of context-specific variables, IT admins are severely restricted in effectively enforcing least privilege access.

 

The Zero Trust Engine’s risk telemetry is collected using numerous contextual variables across all parts of the user’s transaction to determine—in real time—the level of access that should be granted. In-depth contextual insights further translate into highly precise, multi-layered policy rules that IT admins can deploy at scale using the most adaptive policy controls.

ZTE visibility context abstruct

The Zero Trust Engine’s precision is underscored by its key capabilities.

In-depth contextual awareness with trust scoring

chevron

The Zero Trust Engine develops a complete, granular risk profile of every transaction in real-time, including Netskope’s unique “Layer 8” visibility that provides insight into crucial 50+ variables like instance and action awareness, and behavioral anomalies leveraging one of the largest application trust repositories in the industry with over 75,000 applications.

Context-aware adaptive trust policy actions

chevron

Allowing for a more sophisticated and nuanced execution of zero trust, the Zero Trust Engine allows IT admins to minimize risks with actions that include allowing the traffic, blocking the transaction, coaching the user inline, prompting an authentication from the user, soliciting justification for any action, or isolating the access from other operations. This is a big difference for IT admins, who are used to the conventional, binary “allow or block” choices for access.

AI/ML-based dynamic policy adjustments

chevron

With continuous inputs from AI and ML models, the Zero Trust Engine allows IT admins to dynamically adjust policies to reflect changing business requirements as applications evolve, as new ones arrive, and as old ones are decommissioned.

Enforce adaptive zero trust for great performance and better user productivity

The single pass architecture of the Zero Trust Engine ensures that all traffic generated from every user transaction is quickly decoded, decrypted, and then scanned by a number of controls to assess and mitigate risk, all before it moves on to the destination. Backed by industry-leading SLAs, the Zero Trust Engine decrypts and re-encrypts traffic only once within milliseconds, connecting users to the web, cloud, or private apps without friction, speeding up performance, and unleashing the full productivity potential of the hybrid workforce.

Adaptive zero trust abstract

The Zero Trust Engine operates at lightning speed and offers dependable resilience due to some key characteristics.

Real-time decryption and decoding of ALL traffic

chevron

The Zero Trust Engine stands out from other industry solution because of its unique ability to decrypt and re-encrypt huge volumes of SSL traffic, and fully decode JSON – the language of the cloud. Unlike some solutions that only decrypt or decode some traffic, the Zero Trust Engine provides real-time decryption and decoding of ALL traffic without impacting user experience.

Single pass traffic inspection

In contrast to other security solutions with fragmented security controls, the Zero Trust Engine ensures that in-depth security inspection doesn’t come at the cost of latency due to its elegant single-pass architecture that performs an array of security inspections in real-time in less than 15 milliseconds.

Supported by Ultra-fast on-ramps with Netskope NewEdge
