Netskope Releases New Incident Management Capabilities to Help Enterprises in More Effective in Cloud Security Operations

Netskope announced the release of new incident management capabilities to help enterprises be more effective in their cloud security operations. The Netskope incident management functionality, the comprehensive available in a CASB platform, enables security teams to respond immediately and thoroughly to cloud security incidents or risks. Unlike other CASB solutions that only provide basic alerting, the new capabilities facilitate the end-to-end incident management process, from incident creation through resolution. In addition, once paired with enhanced, customizable role-based access control capabilities, security teams are able to better tailor the Netskope platform to their corporate incident response processes and user needs. Key features include: Closed-Loop Workflows: Administrative workflows help security teams manage incidents by assigning owners, escalating for review, adding tags and notations and tracking to resolution. Flexible remediation workflows provide security analysts with options to take actions such as notify users or protect sensitive data. Detailed Forensics: Detailed forensic and audit trails give security analysts a comprehensive view of each incident, including the specific policy violated, actions taken and a view of any sensitive data in complete context. This forensics view also includes a range of additional information including the user, device, location, app and app instance, and more, giving the analyst complete context to make a well-informed decision. Incident Histories: Event-by-event incident history interlaces all activities for a given incident. This includes all relevant user activities, policy triggers and actions taken by admins and analysts to manage and remediate the incident. With a detailed timeline for each incident, analysts and auditors can track progress on, confirm and report on a successful resolution. Customizable Role-Based Access Control: Netskope has greatly expanded predefined administrator and analyst roles, and also added fine-grained ability to define custom roles by both administrative functions and organizational scope, including by group, location, app/app instance and more.

Netskope Announces the Availability of Netskope Active Threat Protection

Netskope announced the availability of Netskope Active Threat Protection, a threat protection solution for the cloud access security broker (CASB) industry. With a comprehensive vantage point over cloud app usage, Netskope Active Threat Protection combines threat intelligence, static and dynamic analysis, and machine-learning based anomaly detection to enable real-time detection, prioritized analysis and remediation of threats that may originate from -- or be further propagated by -- cloud apps. These new Netskope capabilities integrate with tools to create a defense-in-depth solution that reduces the time required for cloud threat detection and forensic analysis from hours to minutes. Netskope Active Threat Protection addresses the lack of cloud visibility with a 360-degree view into sanctioned and unsanctioned cloud app usage, even if the user is accessing the app remotely or from a mobile device. This vantage point over the cloud vector goes beyond other CASB solutions that fail to see all app usage and data movement. Netskope Active Threat Protection goes even further by understanding the context of the usage, such as who is uploading, downloading and sharing data -- information that may prove critical when thwarting an attack or limiting its blast radius. To help IT address the complexity of the threat landscape and skills shortage, Netskope Active Threat Protection is designed to prioritize potential threat dangers during scanning without sacrificing the comprehensiveness of the scans performed. This is done at high speed and in real time before surfacing forensic analysis in a single Netskope dashboard or via a customer's security information and event management (SIEM) solution. To expedite or automate remediation efforts, Netskope Active Threat Protection comes with a granular policy enforcement engine and can trigger workflows such as quarantining, or a customer can integrate with their existing remediation toolset. Key features of Netskope Active Threat Protection include:360-degree Cloud Vantage Point: Netskope Active Threat Protection offers a 360-degree view into sanctioned and unsanctioned apps, distilled into users, activity and context, all in one central dashboard; Prioritized Threat Protection: Industry-first prioritized threat protection provides deep contextual-based insights from threat intelligence, static and dynamic analysis and anomaly detection, to detect, analyze and quarantine the latest viruses, advanced persistent threats (APTs), spyware, adware, worms, ransomware and other malware; Remediation Built for the Cloud: Netskope Active Threat Protection leverages the Netskope policy enforcement capabilities along with cloud-specific integrations with endpoint detection and response (EDR), sandbox and SIEM vendors so that the time required for forensics is reduced from hours to minutes; Netskope Active Threat Protection also integrates with leading IT security vendors to provide best-of-breed capabilities and extend existing enterprise investments: Threat Intelligence Feed Aggregation and Sharing: Netskope Active Threat Protection automatically aggregates and normalizes threat intelligence feeds to increase threat detection. In addition, as a participant in the FireEye Cyber Security Coalition, Netskope integrates with the FireEye platform to share intelligence. Finally, Netskope Active Threat Protection communicates using STIX/TAXII or OpenIOC standards to exchange threat context and detection information and Netskope customers can easily leverage existing threat intelligence aggregations that they have built over time; Zero-Day Threat Intelligence: Zero-day intelligence feeds from FireEye ensure Netskope Active Threat Protection detects and protects against the latest threats; Sandboxing: Netskope Active Threat Protection provides certified integrations with FireEye and Cyphort. Additional sandboxing providers can be leveraged through pre-built integrations; Endpoint Intelligence and Incident Response: Netskope Active Threat Protection integrates out-of-the-box with the Carbon Black EDR solution. The integration is bi-directional; endpoint behavioral data is pulled into the Netskope platform, where it is analyzed against user, activity and content data. Netskope cloud app policies can also be pushed to the EDR for seamless remediation.
