Cloud management begins with discovery

Find all cloud services and assess enterprise readiness


Netskope Discovery

Your employees are all using the cloud and increasingly bringing cloud services into the organization. This makes them productive, but can also introduce risk into the organization due to insecure services or compliance violations with sensitive data moving into the cloud.
Netskope Discovery allows you to identify all cloud services being used in your organization.

With the Netskope Cloud Confidence Index™ (CCI), you can assess the enterprise-readiness of each service. And with our all-mode architecture, you get cloud visibility through a 360-degree view of all cloud traffic for comprehensive coverage. Understand the context of how each cloud service is being used, including information on the user, activity, device, location, and more. Finally, query directly from the dashboard for dynamic reports of the granular cloud usage information Netskope uncovers.

Key Features

Full visibility

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.

Netskope CCI

Assess enterprise-readiness of cloud services based on the Netskope Cloud Confidence Index, which contains objective criteria adapted from the Cloud Security Alliance. See and compare service attributes in the areas of security, legal, audit and third-party certifications, vulnerabilities and exploits, financial viability, and privacy features. These attributes, combined with your usage data, help you measure both your overall risk as well as by cloud service or user. Customize your risk scores by adjusting ratings based on your specific requirements and compensating controls, and incorporate scores into your policy enforcement.

  • Measure cloud services’ enterprise-readiness based on 50+ objective attributes
  • Customize scores based on your specific requirements and compensating controls
  • Beyond cloud monitoring, enforce policies based on cloud services’ enterprise readiness
Risk dashboard

Get at-a-glance risk metrics and drill down to the details in the Netskope Risk Dashboard. See risk by cloud service, user, and overall. Understand which users’ account credentials have been compromised in external data breaches and be alerted to threats such as malware and ransomware, as well as anomalies like data exfiltration, bulk downloads, and shared credentials.

  • See risky services, users, compromised credentials, anomalies, and threats
  • Take advantage of rules- and machine learning-based anomaly detection
  • Detect and protect against threats such as malware and ransomware

Use Netskope to help you identify and consolidate redundant cloud services in categories such as cloud storage, CRM, and collaboration based on security attributes, cost, and usage. From a cloud management point of view, this will help you reduce information silos, mitigate risk, and save cost by reducing redundant instances of the same cloud service.

Policy creation

Use the Netskope CCI and Risk Dashboard to inform cloud security policies, programs, and strategies. If you arm yourself with service risk information, threat intelligence, and usage metrics, you can implement policies such as “Disallow upload of personally identifiable information (PII) to any cloud storage service rated ‘medium’ or below.”

Cloud forensics

Netskope gives you comprehensive, step-by-step forensic audit trails of all cloud transactions. Use ad hoc queries to drill down to the information you want to see following a suspected event such as data exfiltration by a departing employee, or for compliance reporting.
