Conditional cloud access control based on context

Control access based on location, device, and more


Granular cloud access control

Your users access cloud services from everywhere and across all device types to get their jobs done. When they’re on the corporate network with corporate devices, cloud usage is often less risky than when they’re remote, on an unsecured Wi-Fi network, and on a personal device that may be compromised. Without access control software, allowing users unfettered access to cloud services can expose your organization to cloud threats, and those threats are amplified when your sensitive data is involved. If you don’t enable secure cloud access, you may introduce risk into your organization. This includes users on BYO devices downloading and sharing sensitive information. Their devices may be compromised, they may be a victim of malware, or they may be accessing your data via unsecured Wi-Fi networks. Netskope addresses these risks by enabling you to set conditional, granular policies that dictate employee access to both sanctioned and unsanctioned cloud services based on contextual data such as user, group, device type, ownership, status, or classification, network or geolocation, and more.

Key Features

Conditional access

Set conditional cloud access control policies based not only on user, location, service, activity, and content, but also device type, classification, operating system, and access method. Control what activities may be performed in the cloud service based on context, and differentiate between corporate and personal instances of the same service for employee privacy.

All-mode architecture

Gain full visibility of your cloud services with an all-mode architecture capable of covering all cloud traffic whether your users are on premises or remote, using a web browser, mobile app, or sync client.

  • See traffic from sanctioned or unsanctioned services
  • Gain visibility whether users are on premises or remote
  • Cover browsers, sync clients, and mobile apps
Granular control

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

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

Top Use Cases

Least privileges

Ensure admin privileges across all services with role-based access controls and gain visibility and control over ecosystem services connected to sanctioned services that are used by employees.

Trusted access

Ensure only trusted devices access your corporate services and data. For example, set a policy that allows full access to Office 365 webmail from corporate devices while giving read-only permissions to BYOD or unmanaged devices.


Selectively grant access or govern activities based on context. With Netskope you can do things like prevent sensitive data from being downloaded onto personal devices or restrict access to a service if an employee is on an unsecured Wi-Fi network.
