Netskope Unveils First On-Premises Cloud Security Solution to Enable Enterprises to Bridge the Gap to the Cloud
Apr 20 15
Netskope announced the first on-premises cloud access security broker (CASB) aimed at providing enterprises with the most stringent data residency, privacy and regulatory requirements the ability to take advantage of cloud apps while maintaining security and compliance. Through this new offering, Netskope extends its cloud-based CASB solution to a fully private, on-premises version that lets customers choose their deployment location or leverage a hybrid approach. Netskope's growth in Canada and Europe and traction with highly regulated Fortune 500 companies helped drive the requirements and shape how the product is deployed. The Netskope on-premises CASB deployment option, named "Netskope Secure Cloud," has been designed for customers in industries and geographies that have observed the same uptake of cloud services as other industries yet require tighter reins over sensitive data. This need can be driven by broader regulatory rules like Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, the EU General Data Protection Regulation, or industry-specific rules like the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Where this comes into play in controlling cloud apps is when enterprises examine security metadata collected from cloud app usage in order to achieve compliance. Netskope Secure Cloud provides these highly regulated organizations with a viable option for safe cloud enablement without sacrificing the advanced capabilities of Netskope's cloud offering, the Netskope Active Platform™. Netskope Secure Cloud is available as an on-premises hardware-based appliance now. Introducing Netskope Active 2.5 The company also announced the launch of version 2.5 of its Netskope Active Platform, which includes: Risk Dashboard: Netskope's Risk Dashboard now includes information about enterprise cloud assets, vulnerabilities and threats. In this version, the dashboard shows users whose login credentials have been compromised in a data breach. Quarantine: Netskope can quarantine content that matches a DLP profile or specified criteria. Netskope can encrypt that content in quarantine and notify the user with a customized message. Legal Hold: IT can hold a copy of specific content for examination by a legal or regulatory reviewer through powerful and simple policies. Netskope automatically places a copy of the file in a designated folder or on-premises. Secure Business Partner Collaboration: Netskope can now protect files shared outside of the enterprise to people and networks that the user do not control. File Tracking: Netskope can now track files through file name changes by capturing a hash of the original file for comparison purposes. This helps prevent the type of data exfiltration typically seen when employees leave a company and take company data with them by changing the names of files to avoid detection. Control over Admin Access: Netskope now asserts even more granular control over a cloud apps administrator for maintaining compliance over administrative access and control. Global Traffic Management: Netskope's Global Traffic Management (GTM) service provides fully fault-tolerant global load balancing. This feature works side-by-side with Netskope's ability to isolate traffic to a particular geography should data-residency concerns be a factor.

During the Netskope proof-of-concept, Plex used the Netskope introspection and data loss prevention capabilities within their Google Apps for Work environment. This meant that data already residing in Google Drive could be inspected for intellectual property and other sensitive files.
