Your organization relies on cloud services for a variety of business functions, including HR, Finance, Sales, Marketing, and more. Whether through a liberal cloud service policy, shadow IT, or the acquisition of cloud-consuming organizations, a multitude of services in your organization perform similar functions but for different groups or divisions. The latest Netskope Cloud Report found an average of more than 20 cloud storage services, among others.
If employees are working in different services, they can’t collaborate on content, create workflows, or share reports and updates, and you will achieve sub-optimal cloud management. On the cost side, you could be paying double for the same functionality, won’t qualify for volume discounts, and won’t receive the kind of attention you deserve as an important customer to your vendors. Finally, having many different silos of information can compromise your cloud security. You need cloud service control that enables you to find and eliminate redundant services and service instances, understand how enterprise-ready each service is, and make informed decisions about which services to invest in and which to consolidate. Eliminating redundancies enhances collaboration and cloud management while reducing complexity and cost.
Netskope gives you a deep understanding of all cloud usage in your organization. You can view details such as user, device, location, service, activity, and data, and assess risk by understanding how sensitive data are being handled in the cloud.
Assess enterprise-readiness of cloud services based on objective criteria adapted from the Cloud Security Alliance. See and compare service attributes in the areas of certifications and standards, data protection, access control, auditability, disaster recovery and business continuity, legal and privacy, and financial viability. Use these attributes combined with your usage to measure your risk by cloud service, user, and for your enterprise overall.
Netskope can deliver automated, customizable coaching messages to educate users and give them interactive options to make them part of the solution. Granular policies can block and notify some users while giving others the option to provide justification and continue with an activity.
Netskope offers a dynamic query engine that uses natural language input and Boolean operators to mine rich cloud usage data. Perform ad hoc queries for on-demand analytics and compliance reports, save queries as custom search results, and generate detailed custom reports for ongoing reporting on sanctioned and unsanctioned cloud usage.
As your organization sanctions cloud services, you need to perform due diligence on both discovered and requested services. To help your business choose cloud services that suit their needs while also meeting your security, auditability, and business continuity requirements, use the Netskope Cloud Confidence Index to compare.
