SolutionsFirst Generation CASB

Take a Step Up Beyond First Generation CASB

Modern CASB vendors like Netskope have evolved from first generation CASBs that were architected primarily to discover cloud services and provide limited API-only controls. A modern CASB cloud security architecture consists of real-time traffic inspection of all enterprise traffic, ensuring that real-time, granular visibility and control is provided for both managed and unmanaged cloud applications so enterprises can safely enable the cloud instead of being forced to block it or simply monitor it.

Take a forklift to your cloud security

Netskope’s Cloud XDTM engine provides a new holistic cloud security architecture that provides real-time traffic inspection. For every transaction, Cloud XD derives deep “context” of user, device, application, and data. Security admins can then develop ultra-tight security policies that help to lock down your cloud application use and reduce business risk.

Netskope a 2020 Magic Quadrant Leader for CASB

For the fourth consecutive year, Gartner has named Netskope a “Leader” in the Magic Quadrant for Cloud Access Security Brokers.


Components of a modern CASB architecture


Third-party risk

Netskope’s Cloud Confidence Index (CCI) can automatically audit your traffic to discover your overall risk profile across thousands of applications used within your environment. Each application is given a risk-score that can help you determine the level of policy required to mitigate threats to your organization.
