New Netskope Capabilities Provide Industry’s Most Customizable and Intuitive Enterprise Security Management for the Cloud At Scale

Advanced analytics, intuitive incident management and personalized dashboards provide insights that reduce incident investigation time by nearly half

Netskope, the leader in cloud security, today announced the release of new advanced analytics and visualization capabilities for the Netskope Active Platform. The release follows an immersive process that included on-site visits and in-depth interviews with Netskope customers to understand the challenges faced by security teams as they work to both keep up with the pace of enterprise cloud adoption and stay ahead of evolving threats.

The new advanced analytics and visualization capabilities integrate multiple big data analytics engines, enabling real-time data aggregation and analysis never before seen in the cloud security industry. These new engines give Netskope the ability to analyze and visualize data in real time from billions of cloud transactions across millions of on-premises and remote users, and tens of thousands of sanctioned and unsanctioned cloud applications in use. Administrators can use the personalized dashboard to perform ad-hoc, real-time queries that can quickly group, filter and drill-down on contextualized data and transactions across an enterprise organization’s cloud activities at a scale and granularity that is unmatched in the industry.

“Security administrators need a comprehensive cloud security platform that provides them with actionable insights and can automate responses and remediation,” said Sanjay Beri, CEO and founder, Netskope. “The enhancements we are announcing today make the Netskope Active Platform more powerful and also more intuitive than ever before, so that employees at multiple levels have the tools available to protect their cloud environment with ease and at scale.”

According to an Enterprise Strategy Group study, 39% of respondents say that the cybersecurity skills shortage has led to a situation where cybersecurity professionals are unable to learn and/or utilize their security technologies to their full potential. As enterprises combat this issue, employees that lack a deep cybersecurity background still need security products that can help them oversee the security of their cloud environment. The advanced analytics and incident management capabilities of the Netskope Active Platform address this challenge and increase employee productivity by enabling insights that allow security administrators to quickly arrive at a decision, and quickly automate workflows and remediation actions.

“Some organizations need to collaborate on security across multiple departments and levels but these processes can be affected by understaffed and under-skilled cybersecurity teams impacted by the global cybersecurity skills shortage,” said Jon Oltsik, Senior Principal Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group. “Netskope can help here by providing tools designed to let multiple individuals and groups collaborate on cloud usage oversight and threat protection.”

The new capabilities enable users to customize their dashboard and easily drill up or down to the level of granularity they need. This is combined with single-click access to relevant workflows to make the dashboard instantly actionable. The new policy builder guides users through the specific steps needed to build more effective policies in less time. As the platform flags policy violations in real time, a new incident details page provides a recap of history, severity, and details in a single location, helping security administrators better recognize behavioral patterns and understand the severity of incidents in a single glance.

With a single click, users can access even deeper views into DLP violations and incidents, detailing exposures and policies associated with specific incidents at the click of a button. Administrators can investigate incidents of all types, including DLP, anomalies, compromised credentials, and malware. Specific filters allow for detailed investigations on user identity, cloud service, activity, whether the file has been shared (and how), location, and more.
