Netskope for Higher Education Institutions

 

 

Netskope is a cloud security company that enables Higher Education institutions to use the cloud and web securely.

Netskope can mitigate risk without impeding the openness, productivity and collaboration that institutions require. Common use cases: enabling safe collaboration via cloud/SaaS technologies, preventing sensitive data loss, and providing remote access to private applications — for managed or unmanaged devices. With Netskope, colleges and universities using Netskope can adhere to FERPA, GLBA, and HIPAA compliance.

 

 

Secure collaboration

Cloud app use for productivity is exploding; Office365, Slack, Zoom, and other cloud collaboration tools used by students, faculty, and staff on and off campus. While everyone is trying to get work and research done, security teams still need to protect sensitive data. Netskope provides granular visibility and control of web and cloud usage, combined with comprehensive data and threat protection to safely enable students, faculty, and staff no matter where they are, what device they are using, or what they do.

BYOD support

Campuses are often full of student owned BYOD. Enabling productivity while mitigating threat and DLP risk on these unsecured devices is a challenge. Netskope provides API and reverse proxy support allowing colleges and universities to get activity level control of sensitive data such as PII and research enabling productivity without an agent mitigating the risk of sensitive data exfiltration. Allow BYOD devices to view and edit documents but prevent move, print, and download to safely enable work and collaboration.

Public cloud security

A growing number of colleges and universities rely on cloud infrastructure platforms in Azure, Google Cloud, and AWS for cost savings, efficient campus-wide IT management, and storing/processing big data for research. Netskope’s public cloud security provides insight into sensitive data stored in blobs and buckets preventing oversharing. It also enforces compliance against standards for NIST CSF, PCI-DSS, CIS, and best practice benchmarks alerting on and fixing misconfigurations that lead to data loss or breaches.

Direct and secure access

Remove expensive legacy back hauling using VPNs and deliver a direct-to-net architecture using a cloud security platform. Netskope provides a global security cloud for securing and managing remote workers’ access to websites and cloud applications. Additionally Netskope seamlessly and securely connects remote workers to their private applications in the data center or public cloud using Zero Trust Network Access.
