Advanced threat protection for the cloud

Multi-layered defenses with a cloud vantage point


Advanced threat protection

Although the cloud makes it easy for you to collaborate and share, these same capabilities make the cloud an attractive target for attackers trying to spread malware and carry out other malicious activity. Netskope is the only CASB with comprehensive, advanced threat protection for cloud services, combining a unique cloud vantage point with multi-layered threat detection and remediation capabilities. Netskope sees cloud traffic that other security solutions cannot, such as that in sync clients, mobile apps, and SSL-encrypted cloud services, opening your eyes to threats hiding in plain sight in your popular cloud services.

Backed by Netskope Threat Research Labs, a dedicated team focused on the discovery and analysis of new cloud threats, drawing from 40+ threat intelligence sources, and using advanced machine learning technology, Netskope provides multiple layers of threat detection and a range of remediation options to address new cloud threats, which too often evade existing security solutions.

Key Benefits

See threats

Netskope sees your cloud services in ways that other security solutions cannot. With the ability to inspect SSL-encrypted cloud services, traffic from sync clients and mobile apps, and files stored in your sanctioned cloud services, Netskope opens your eyes to threats that can hide in your cloud services.

  • See traffic from sanctioned or unsanctioned apps
  • Cover browsers, mobile apps, and sync clients
  • Gain visibility whether users are on-premises or remote
  • Understand threats in context of user, device, location, app, activity, and data
Deep defenses

Cyber threats come in many forms and evolve rapidly, from quick hitting ransomware to stealthy Trojans to advanced persistent threats. As the cloud becomes a common vector for these threats, you need multi-layered, dynamic threat protection built for the cloud to help you stay ahead.

Rapid response

Your threat response needs to move faster than ever to keep pace with the speed of the cloud. Netskope enables you to take immediate, automated action on known or suspected threats as well as thoroughly analyze and quickly remediate new cloud threats. Moreover, we arm the rest of your security infrastructure with cloud threat intelligence through third-party integrations.

  • Block or quarantine threats in real time
  • Use detailed cloud context for forensic investigations
  • Remediate directly in key cloud services to stop and even reverse threats
  • Integrate with other security tools to share cloud intelligence and coordinate defenses

Cloud threat protection in action

Learn how Netskope protects you from cloud threats such as malware and ransomware.

In this video, we show you how you can inspect your sanctioned and unsanctioned cloud services for a broad range of malware, and take immediate action to protect against and remediate an infection.

Top Use Cases

Detect anomalies

Take advantage of advanced user behavior analytics and machine learning to baseline your users’ normal activities and detect anomalies in real time. Detect unusual data movement and user activity, compromised credentials, and excessive data movement that could indicate internal or external threats to your cloud environment.

Find malware

Inspect your sanctioned cloud services, such as Office 365 and Box, for malware. In addition, provide more comprehensive threat protection for your users by inspecting real-time activities – such as uploads and downloads – in all cloud services for malware using multiple layers of detection.

Reverse spread of malware

Stop the rapid propagation of malware infections that take advantage of sync and share in your cloud services. Quarantine and replace suspicious files with an inert tombstone file and then watch sync do its thing! With Netskope, you’re not just stopping the spread of malware, you’re reversing it.

Recover from ransomware

Quickly detect the spread of ransomware in your sanctioned cloud services. Take advantage of an automated workflow that uses the built-in versioning capabilities in your sanctioned cloud service to restore files to earlier, unaffected versions.

Distinguish app instances

Your users inherently trust your sanctioned cloud services, which makes malicious instances of these services an attractive channel for attackers. Use Netskope to differentiate between sanctioned and unsanctioned instances of your key cloud services to address this new threat vector.
