To effectively provide reliable energy and services for customers, utility companies like yours need to access real-time data from various disparate systems and services, including cloud services and, increasingly, websites built with dynamic content and services. For your industry, it’s about ensuring reliability and safety for your customers and delivering competitive services run in a cost effective way. Besides that, there is also compliance with regulatory bodies such as the Federal Energy Reliability Corporation (FERC) and North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC).
So in order to securely measure reliability and performance of your services, ensure access to resources for employees in the field, and manage customer and billing information, you need the ability to find and assess all SaaS, IaaS, and web usage at your organization while putting in place contextual access and security policies to govern usage and secure sensitive data.
As cloud service and web usage grows, you need to understand and manage the risks associated with these cloud services. Granular visibility into your cloud and web usage will help you strike the right balance between these risks and the business benefits you are trying to achieve.
You need to understand activity-level usage of your cloud services and websites in the context of NERC/FERC compliance as well as any other compliance regimens that you are subject to. To ensure compliant usage, you need to govern access, activities and data across cloud and web.
It’s easy to share data in the cloud and web, but improper use can impact the security of payment card data as well as other sensitive information. It’s important for you to identify and protect the sensitive data stored in your cloud services and also control data being uploaded, downloaded, and shared.
Use Netskope to carve out risky activities in sanctioned or unsanctioned cloud services and websites with granular policies that take into account user, service or website, device, location, activity, and content. Control activities by risk level by defining policies based on the Cloud Confidence Level in the Netskope CCI. Enforce policies at the service, service instance, or service category level.
Find all cloud services and websites in use across your organization, both sanctioned services and shadow IT. Understand the enterprise-readiness of these cloud services with our objective Cloud Confidence Index and obtain detailed usage information about users, activities and data. Use this information to assess your risk and inform your cloud and web security policies, such as preventing users from uploading content to poorly rated personal cloud storage services.
Detect sensitive content at rest in sanctioned cloud services or en route to or from any cloud service or website with advanced, enterprise DLP. Define granular policies – based on identity, service, activity and data – to automatically protect your data by blocking activities, restricting access, encrypting data, and more.
The cloud and web make it easy to share, but this same capability makes these services an attractive target for malicious actors. Protect your organization from cloud threats such as malware and ransomware and also detect unusual data movement or user activity that could indicate the presence of an active threat in your environment.
