In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service deserves recognition
Netskope Cloud DLP is a data loss prevention (DLP) solution for finding sensitive content in transit or at rest within cloud apps. The product includes a set of industry-first cloud features to reduce the time required for IT and security professionals to create sensitive data policies to best mitigate potential security risks and reduce regulatory exposure for enterprises.
Cloud DLP is flexible and easy-to-use. It offers a simple wizard for enterprises to either define their own custom DLP profile or choose from industry-standard pre-defined profiles that were built based on standard combinations of data identifiers. Unlike other DLP solutions, which are either too basic or so arcane that they require dedicated security personnel, Netskope Cloud DLP is simple and flexible, letting IT define DLP profiles and get policies up-and-running in minutes, and then gain powerful intelligence about data loss in its environment — all within a simple workflow.
The platform includes a set of industry-first features to further reduce false positives and the time required for security professionals to create sensitive data policies necessary to mitigate enterprise security risks. The platform also aids IT in quickly identifying cloud app policy violations and trends in real-time, which further increases the accuracy of sensitive data detection and protection.
In less than 300 words, summarize the most important features and benefits of this product or service
With increasing amounts of business data migrating to and being created in the cloud, identifying and protecting sensitive data is a challenge for many organizations. Traditional content inspection techniques have a reputation for introducing too many false positives or false negatives. Netskope Cloud DLP supports more than 3,000 data identifiers and 500 file types, keyword search, pattern matching, proximity analysis, and international support including double-byte characters to increase accuracy.
The proliferation of cloud apps has led to an exponential rise in the volume of sensitive business data stored in and shared across cloud environments. Until very recently, this has been a problem left largely untouched by traditional security vendors. Netskope’s aim with the Cloud DLP solution has always been to provide the most advanced solution, whether standalone or integrated with existing on-premises solutions.
A challenge many organizations face is having an existing on-premises DLP investment that they want to leverage for the cloud. Customers want to increase accuracy and efficiency and leverage their existing investment whenever possible. However, backhauling all cloud data to your premises for inspection is not the right solution. Netskope Cloud DLP features the most elegant integration with on-premises DLP and incident management systems, performing a first pass of sensitive content discovery in the cloud for efficiency, and then directing suspected violations to organizations’ highly-tuned DLP solutions via secure ICAP.
