The Netskope Security Cloud provides unrivaled visibility, real-time data and threat protection when accessing cloud services, websites, and private apps from anywhere, on any device. Using patented technology called Netskope Cloud XD, the Netskope Security Cloud eliminates blind spots by going deeper than any other security provider to quickly target and control activities across thousands of cloud services (SaaS and IaaS) and millions of websites. The platform is comprised of the following comprehensive arsenal of solutions all built to protect data in the cloud:
CASB API-enabled protection for managed apps and cloud services (e.g. Office 365, Salesforce, Box, Dropbox), providing cloud policy controls with threat protection and DLP for data-at-rest.
NG SWG with granular policy controls for protecting cloud services, applications, websites, and data for any user, location, or device. Decodes API / JSON-based communications, courtesy of the unique Cloud XD™ technology to better secure thousands of cloud applications, both managed and unmanaged. Includes inline defenses like advanced threat and data protection, SSL/TLS inspection, URL filtering, acceptable use, and more.
Cloud security posture management (CSPM) to provide continuous assessment of IaaS public cloud resources and configurations, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) to provide secure, private access from users to specific apps, data resources, or cloud environments to replace legacy remote access VPN solutions.

Netskope Cloud Firewall, a firewall-as-a-service offering, reduces complexity, lowers overall operational expenses, prevents a degraded user experience, and accelerates time-to-value for organizations transforming security and networking to meet the demands of branch offices and remote-first workforces. Netskope also announced industry-first and industry-best Service Level Agreements (SLAs) for security traffic processing in the cloud, ensuring customers using the Netskope Security Cloud enjoy network performance at levels of speed and reliability not available with other vendors.

How we are different

The Center of the Distributed Universe: The new distributed universe and transition to the cloud creates enormous value, but it also carries significant risk. The security transformation challenge is massive, as organizations moving to the cloud must also navigate an uptick in major cyber attacks and data breaches. Netskope is driving this transformation, helping usher in a new model that is pervasive and enabling for the user, the application, and the business, by focusing on data in the cloud. Accelerated by a $300 million round of new financing in July 2021, Netskope innovations are a direct reflection of what organizations need now to be successful and improve their cloud security.

Makes the Most of Security Investments: The Netskope cloud-native security cloud platform enables seamless, third-party integrations with a robust ecosystem of alliance partners, allowing enterprises to make the most of existing security investments while protecting users across SaaS, IaaS, and web environments. For example, the CrowdStrike Falcon Endpoint Protection Platform binds seamlessly with the Netskope cloud-native threat protection engine, sharing detected Zero Day threats on the endpoint and other Indicators of Compromise (IOC). Netskope then enriches CrowdStrike, sharing data on new threats discovered within cloud services and from websites visited by endpoints.

Netskope deployment options support any use case: From an API-only deployment mode to several real-time options, customers can deploy 100% in the cloud, with an on-premises appliance, or a hybrid option. Netskope gives optimal performance and responsiveness. Delivered through the NewEdge infrastructure, customers benefit from one of the world’s largest, high-performance networks to protect the customer’s environment. Netskope takes a 360-degree data-centric approach to cloud security, protecting data and users everywhere using award-winning data loss prevention (DLP) and encryption.
