Cloud Security

Data-centric. Cloud-smart. Fast

Redefining Cloud, Network, and Data Security…


Today, there’s more data and users outside the enterprise than inside, causing the network perimeter as we know it to dissolve. We need a new perimeter. One that is built in the cloud, and follows and protects data — wherever it goes. One that provides protection without slowing down or creating friction for the business. One that enables fast and secure access to the cloud and web using one of the world’s largest and fastest security networks, so you never have to sacrifice security for performance. This is the new perimeter. This is the Netskope Security Cloud.


The Netskope security cloud provides unrivaled visibility and real-time data and threat protection when accessing cloud services, websites, and private apps from anywhere, on any device.

Office 365 – The Microsoft Office 365 suite has consistently led the list of productivity services across thousands of enterprises of all sizes. Netskope, the only CASB to receive Microsoft Gold Cloud Productivity Partner status, enhances Office 365 security by helping you understand and control risky activities across the Office 365 suite of services, protect sensitive data, and stop cloud threats.

Managed cloud apps – Whether you have a managed application Office 365, Box, DropBox, or any of the more 36,000 cloud services available, an extra layer of security is critical to protecting you against sensitive data leakage, cloud threats and risks associated with non-compliant behavior.

Un-managed cloud – Discover and provide data and threat protection for unmanaged apps and cloud services adopted by your business units and users. Today, companies on average have 1,295 apps and cloud services with less than 2% managed by IT administration – make sure they are all protected, as well as provide coaching to help users avoid the use of high risk apps and encourage safer alternatives.

AWS, Azure, and GCP – Provides consistent security across all public cloud deployments. Netskope complements the security natively provided by cloud service providers (CSP), such as Amazon, Microsoft, and Google, for their compute instances, databases, and object storage services, going broader and deeper to provide visibility into data risks and advanced threats.

Mobile and direct-to-net – Enable direct-to-net communications for remote offices and mobile workers accessing managed and unmanaged apps and cloud services, plus web communications. Digital transformation creates a cloud first environment where the extra expense to backhaul traffic and provide legacy VPNs impedes users with complexity and latency.

SSL/TLS inspection – Encrypted traffic keeps increasing hitting 82% for Chrome on Windows systems according the June 2019 Google HTTPS Encryption Transparency Report. The challenge is appliances lack scale to inspect this increasing load while cloud security services are elastic with on-demand performance.


The dissolving perimeter is forcing CISOs to transform their security program in a similar way that the business is undergoing a digital transformation. In order to better manage risk, security program components such as data protection, threat protection, and compliance need to be retooled for today’s cloud and mobile world, where efficiency and performance are more important than ever.

Data protection – Address your ever-growing cloud data governance problem and protect your sensitive data from loss and exposure in both managed and unmanaged cloud services and web traffic with Netskope data loss prevention (DLP).

Threat protection – Prevent and detect threats hiding in cloud services and websites. Netskope decodes and inspects traffic that other security solutions cannot, such as unmanaged cloud services, sync clients, mobile apps, and TLS-encrypted cloud services and websites, to identify and address threats that too often evade existing security solutions.

Compliance – Maintain compliance in the cloud by ensuring that sensitive data complies with specific regulatory requirements. Customers can enforce data loss protection, access controls, and encrypting sensitive data in the cloud across managed and unmanaged cloud applications. Full visibility and granular access controls can ensure that sensitive data is never at risk for non-compliance.

Efficiency – Increase the productivity of your security team. A single interface manages all security requirements under a unified security platform that helps them gain visibility, granular security controls and compliance. All managed from a single easy to use management interface.

Performance – NewEdge is the global network that powers the Netskope security cloud platform to deliver real-time security without sacrificing performance. As a high-capacity, low-latency network, NewEdge enables fast and reliable delivery of advanced security services such as CASB, next generation secure web gateway, data loss prevention, threat protection, and more.

    Many first-generation security products are proving to be ineffective in today’s cloud- and mobile-first world. While those investments made sense at the time they were purchased, the shifting IT landscape is forcing security teams to upgrade their existing tools with more modern functionality that was architected for today’s world.

    Virtual Private Network (VPN) – Legacy VPNs provide broad network access when a cloud-first environment requires zero-trust access to individual resources and data in private clouds and data centers. Replace the complexity, cost, and hardware of VPN solutions with cloud-based private access.

    Secure Web Gateway (SWG) – Appliance-based web gateways have limited scale to decrypt and inspect traffic, and most lack the ability to decode cloud services and apps which today equates to 85% of web traffic. Migrate to next generation SWG capabilities with fully integrated CASB and DLP for data and threat protection.

    SSL decryption appliances – Encrypted traffic has now reached 82% for Chrome on Windows devices placing a burden on appliances limited in capacity. Blend in the need for direct-to-net access for remote offices and mobile workers, and cloud-based SSL/TLS inspection is the answer.

    First-generation CASB – API-mode for managed cloud services and apps was the first phase for cloud access brokers. The reality is an organization uses more than 1,295 cloud services and apps where less than 2% have APIs for cloud inspection, the rest need inline controls from a multi-mode solution.

      Netskope helps the largest enterprises in the world secure their journey to the cloud. Netskope customers in industries such as retail, financial, healthcare, and government are transforming their security program with Netskope.
