Using patented technology, the patented Netskope Context Engine enables you to see real-time cloud activity details in context. This includes users, devices, locations, dates, times, content, and of course, activities such as “share,” “approve,” “edit,” “download,” “send,” “post,” “upload,” and more across any service, service instance, or service category. By mapping out the API interactions of billions of transactions across tens of thousands of services, the Netskope Context Engine has built the intelligence you need to go beyond wondering what byte movements represent. This allows you to understand risky behavior and take action to protect sensitive data, stop online threats, and respond to incidents immediately and thoroughly.
The Netskope Context Engine uniquely and comprehensively covers all cloud usage sources, including web browsers, mobile apps, and sync clients.
Rather than take a sledgehammer approach by blocking cloud services, use the Netskope Context Engine as your scalpel. Identify risky activities and their context, such as sharing outside of the organization’s sanctioned instance or downloading confidential data to a BYO device, and block or throttle those instead. The result is safely enabling the cloud while carving out the risk rather than blocking services outright.
Rather than go through the tedious process of creating a separate policy for each cloud service, take advantage of unified policies from Netskope. The Netskope Context Engine has done the hard work to normalize activities like “upload,” so you can seamlessly enforce policies at the category level, such as “Block upload of sensitive content to any cloud storage outside of the company’s corporate instance.”
By mapping the API interactions of billions of transactions across tens of thousands of services, the Netskope Context Engine helps you understand cloud activities like “share,” “approve,” “edit,” “download,” “send,” “post,” “upload,” and more across any service, service instance, or service category.
Because the Netskope Context Engine gives you more granularity across the board, you will have stronger policies. You can be more precise and targeted across both sanctioned and unsanctioned services whether users are on a web browser, mobile app, or sync client.
The Netskope Context Engine gives you rich contextual cloud usage details for your reporting, analytics, and forensics. By decoding and normalizing metadata about users, services, devices, locations, activities, and content, we make these details available for your ad-hoc queries, forensic audit trail,incident management processes, and compliance reports.
The Netskope Context Engine takes your cloud threat protection to the next level by augmenting anomaly detection with contextual cloud usage details. Your threat vector coverage is expanded to include both sanctioned and unsanctioned services and access methods.
The Netskope Context Engine enables you to incorporate context into your DLP policies for more precise and accurate detection. Your DLP coverage is also expanded across sanctioned and unsanctioned services and all access methods.

I wanted something that from a platform perspective would enable me to audit the user account and data -- the actual file that they touch -- all the way out to the cloud, where they were going, and I wanted to know risk areas and to who they were going to and is that a good company and should we go ahead and block them?
