Organizations large and small work with external people like third-party vendors, contractors, consultants, and more. Collaborating with such a diverse set of external stakeholders means giving access to corporate information and intellectual property. Whether it’s submitting or receiving design plans in a cloud storage service or providing access to corporate email, having external collaborators can expose your sensitive business data or expose it to cloud threats such as malware.
You need a way to secure cloud access to sanctioned and unsanctioned cloud services by context, including device type (managed versus unmanaged), location, identity, and more. This helps you protect your corporate assets from unauthorized access or insecure networks that could introduce threats or cause data loss.
Gain full visibility of your cloud services with an all-mode architecture capable of covering all cloud traffic whether your users are on premises or remote, using a web browser, mobile app, or sync client. Assess enterprise readiness of these cloud services with our objective Cloud Confidence Index (CCI) and calculate risk scores based on your organization’s usage.
Only Netskope gives you granular visibility and control over all or your cloud services. Rather than take a coarse-grained approach by blocking services, set your security policies based on identity, service, activity, and data. Choose from actions such as block, alert, bypass, encrypt, quarantine, and coach for policy enforcement.
Many cloud services make it easy to share, but those same capabilities can put your sensitive data at risk. Detect and protect your sensitive content as it moves in and out of sanctioned and unsanctioned cloud services with the industry’s most sophisticated cloud DLP and advanced data encryption. Protect data as you’re collaborating with external users like contractors and consultants.
In this episode of Movie Line Monday, Bob Gilbert, VP of Product Marketing at Netskope, goes over the many ways cloud apps and services are accessed — all of which must be taken into consideration for a comprehensive cloud security program. He also talks about choosing cloud access security brokers (CASBs) that allow you to gain activity- and data-level details of cloud usage and how to secure that usage with cloud DLP, policy enforcement, and cloud threat and malware protection.
Govern the usage of unsanctioned cloud services based on contextual details such as user, service, device, location, activity, and content. Apply granular policies such as “prevent uploads of sensitive data to personal cloud storage services” or “allow access to Finance/Accounting services for finance department only.”
Detect and secure your sensitive content en route to or from any cloud service with advanced, enterprise DLP. Uncover sensitive content using predefined (or custom) profiles for payment card industry data (PCI), protected health information (PHI), and more. Protect with automated workflows to block, quarantine, or encrypt your data.
It is vital to have a complete understanding of your users’ cloud behavior, including details about the user, device, location, service, activity, and content, to detect usage anomalies and make well-informed policy decisions. Granular visibility helps you govern not only your employees but also contractors and other outside users that are accessing cloud services with unmanaged devices or from insecure locations.

Anyone with a phone can just switch off the wifi and go online and continue doing their work, so blocking things at the firewall, blocking things at the network level, that’s just a losing battle. Netskope was designed to work in the cloud, cloud-native, and work with mobile products.
