Netskope began shipping a CASB product in October 2013 and was one of the early CASB vendors that emphasized both cloud application discovery and SaaS security posture assessments. It includes well-developed behavior analytics and alerting within managed and unmanaged SaaS applications. Netskope for SaaS is aimed at enterprises.

Notable features

  • Netskope can be deployed either 100 per cent in the cloud, as an on-premises appliance, or via a hybrid configuration that includes both.
  • Cloud and web traffic is steered to Netskope for inspection using a patented all-mode traffic steering technology that provides several out-of-band and inline options. This is designed to ensure 100 per cent coverage for users on premises, mobile, and remote.
  • Real-time inline (proxy) capabilities include the ability to SSL-decrypt cloud and web traffic at scale in order to enable full visibility of data movement and user activities.
