Netskope Unveils Netskope Active(TM) for Real-time Control of Any Cloud App, Not Just Ones IT Manages
Jan 28 14
Netskope announced the availability of Netskope Active, the platform that provides context-aware cloud data loss prevention (DLP), encryption, and anomaly detection in real time for any cloud app, whether the app is managed by IT or not. Created to help enterprises unmask "Shadow IT" usage and enforce policies that protect sensitive information and prevent data loss, Netskope Active improves compliance with data governance rules across industries while supporting the use of cloud apps that enable employees to get their jobs done. Features and Details: The Netskope Active Platform has been expanded from real-time analytics and policy enforcement to include context- and activity-aware Active Cloud DLP, Active Encryption, and Anomaly Detection. This means companies can get granular control over any cloud app, whether IT manages it or not. Examples of such apps include Amazon Web Services, Atlassian JIRA, Box, Concur, EasyVista, Evernote, Expensify, Facebook, GitHub, Google Drive, Huddle, Jive, Marketo, Prezi, Salesforce.com, SuccessFactors, SugarCRM, Twitter, WebEx, Workday, Yammer, Zendesk, and many more. Active Cloud DLP provides context- and activity-aware content classification and policy enforcement. Netskope addresses this problem with the industry's only solution that can enforce granular DLP policies across any cloud app. With its API-level understanding of app activities and rich context around user, location, time, device, OS, and other details, Netskope Active Cloud DLP lets IT take action on the most relevant data to maximize coverage while minimizing false positives and false negatives. Netskope allows IT to coach users when policies have been invoked so they're aware of the policy violation and can take corrective action. This builds trust by educating users, creating transparency about enterprise security and policies, and making users part of the process. Netskope Active DLP can be used to set policies such as, "Block the upload of personal health information to any cloud storage app. Since Netskope normalizes activities such as "upload," "download," and "share" across apps, enterprises can set DLP policies once and have them enforced in real-time across any app; Active Encryption (offered in Spring 2014) is context- and activity-aware enterprise encryption for cloud apps. IT can manage encryption keys on-premises or securely in the customer's tenant instance in the cloud, and can manage those keys within corporate policies such as key rotation and expiry.
