"Turn your employees into Security Policies Ambassadors"

What do you like best?

Microscope view into employees personal and corporate cloud usage

What do you dislike?

Split tunneling, funneling cloud traffic through Netskope and associated privacy and traffic latency. Latency is not a real issue, I am picky as there is not much to dislike!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Seeing the nature of personal cloud usage, the information involved in work related cloud usage, we were able to set priorities and make a communicaiton plan to educate employees on the risks of using corp data on un-assessed cloud apps, and the limits of personal usage on corp time and equipment. The enforcement of the Policies are so easy when they understand. They now consult us before, and talk about it to other employees. Many become our ambassadors.

"Netskope Active Platform"

What do you like best?

The best feature when using the active platform for Netskope is the granularity of information that you are able to view/act on for different cloud applications. The filtering and actions you can take on this granular information are highly customisable and effective in any environment.

What do you dislike?

The only thing i disliked while using the platform was the MDM phone option for forward proxy was a VPN connection you had to turn on all the time for your users to use the SaaS services from their devices. This felt like a bulky feature and most BYOD devices it was too complicated for our end users to utilize while turning the VPN on and off.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Price, Ease of Use, Setup, and Features.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A large use-case for this platform, obviously, is DLP. We have been able to actively protect and scan SaaS data to find sensitive data and remove/block the data. Additionally, the shadow IT aspect of this platform is excellent. Having the CCI scores built into the platform is a great feature and helps you quickly determine if the cloud services your users are using are safe.

What Cloud Security solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Excellent product that is easy to manage with a small team!"

What do you like best?

Netskope is super simple to implement and even easier to manage. We have a small team and using Netskope is a major "force multiplier." Easy to use reporting and dashboards (shocking to see for the first time). The Cloud Confidence Index is one-of-a-kind and is in huge demand from our lines of business.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the inability to generate a comparison report of the Cloud Confidence Index. I know this is coming and will be a huge improvement over screenshots.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Have your policies in place before you implement blocking or speed bumps. It was nice to see who the majority of users were that we would be effecting before we implemented an intervention.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Blindspots to cloud applications (e.g. what are they, who's accessing them, what are they putting up there?).

As an HIPAA covered entity, I need to know where the data is, Netskope answers this question for us. It also allows us to limit access to sites people should not be using which has become hugely beneficial.

"Effective and Straightforward"

What do you like best?

Give you excellent insight into where your data is going. You can test this before purchasing (we did) and we were very surprised at both the type of data and the locations (box, iCloud, etc...) that were being used.

What do you dislike?

It can take a bit to implement, but we haven't run into any huge roadblocks. Our top three issues were of our own making: all bandwidth and priority related.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I initially wanted to go w/Palo's solution as we could get it for a competitive price, but Netskope worked with us to get close to parity, and it's far beyond Palo's capability

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were looking to implement and enforce a data classification policy, and this was one of the key platforms that enabled both insight into where our data was going, and what type of data it was. We could trace back to users and address concerns and violations very quickly. We were also able to use it to help prevent misuse as well.

"Netskope Review"

What do you like best?

Options and coverage within cloud security space. We feel confident that Netskope will be one of the leaders when it comes to options available in the CASB space

What do you dislike?

CASB is not a silver bullet in terms of mobility enablement. You will still need to augment EMM and IDP security with CASB to provide a comprehensive security solution for mobile security enablement. Not an issue specifically with Netskope, but there are still gaps in coverage for specific use cases/scenarios

Recommendations to others considering the product

test before using of course, but it is imperative. Start with a small group and move to a pilot.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

DLP for collaboration SaaS apps, mobility enablement, cloud security

"Perfect foundation for controlling shadow IT and firming up gaps in your cloud security program"

What do you like best?

Easy to install, resilient, updates automatically, creates solid foundation for identifying folks employing cloud apps outside of the corporate purview and controlling data flow to/from these and other cloud apps. A critical part of our cloud security program.

What do you dislike?

Feature list is so extensive, it may take a while to get acclimated with everything you have available at your disposal. Hardly a negative however!

Recommendations to others considering the product

You need to do a full Proof of Concept and let the NEtskope folks guide you on best practices, especially if you've never used a CASB product before.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Solving the problem of unaudited shadow IT, unauthorized cloud app usage.

"Excellent product for getting a handle on your SaaS usage"

What do you like best?

Netskope is an easy to deploy platform that begins giving valuable information in a matter of days. The flexibility in their deployment options is also a big advantage over some of their competitors.

What do you dislike?

If you have a large environment like we do, the manual upgrading of the OPLPs can become cumbersome

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Netskope allows us to see what SaaS applications are actively being used. It also gives us a deep insight into O365 and how data is flowing in between.

Great user interface with full SSO integration.

Easy to navigate menus and dashboards.

Fast access to Cloud confidence Index and risk assessments of over 27K SaaS providers

Data leakage analysis and policy enforcement capabilities.

What do you dislike?

Occasionally CCI scores are out-of-date - however Netskope provide a mechanism to challenge and update these.

Understand how you will get your Internet traffic data from your proxies into the Netskope Cloud.

Conduct a PoC on both the Netskope Agent and Log parser to work out which model fits best with your organisaiton

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Enhanced visibility of SaaS solutions being used by the business. Identificaiton of high risk SaaS providers
