Netskope introduces SaaS security enhancements to Netskope One for GenAI and SaaS collaboration

Netskope has unveiled SaaS security enhancements to Netskope One, its cloud-native platform that offers converged security and networking services to enable SASE and zero trust transformation. These new enhancements advance the platform’s Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) module with additional features designed for the era of GenAI and SaaS collaboration.

Netskope One natively integrates SSPM, inline, and API CASB functionalities together with a suite of AI capabilities, enabling organizations to get the most out of SaaS applications while proactively protecting sensitive data, whenever and wherever it travels.

SaaS apps are the backbone of productive enterprise business operations and require the most granular risk visibility possibleā€”especially as GenAI app adoption skyrockets. Netskope’s 2024 Cloud and Threat Report found that enterprise employees interact with an average of between 11-33 cloud apps per month and saw GenAI app usage increase by 400% year over year.

The increased reliance on these apps, and their more consistent usage, is putting a significant strain on legacy CASB solutions, which tend to rely on manually-intensive approaches for identifying applications and classifying their specific risks. Furthermore, many of these outdated tools are more difficult and complicated to manage and fail to provide the deeper intelligence and richer context needed to consistently discover and take action on current and emerging data security risks.

As a natively converged platform, Netskope One helps teams reduce security gaps, address new risks, reduce cost and complexity, increase protection, and accelerate everything to everywhere. Netskope also leverages the platform’s advanced, context-driven data loss prevention (DLP), and provides an easy-to-manage solution that delivers:

  • GenAI-powered CASB, which employs precise GenAI algorithms for automatic risk scoring of new and previously unseen SaaS apps, on-demand risk categorization for novel SaaS applications identified by security teams, and LLM-driven risk insights for SaaS applications, simply available via natural language queries
  • Context-driven cloud DLP, covering over 1,800+ different file types, leveraging over 3,000+ data identifiers, ML and deep learning, AI, Natural Language Processing (NLP), convolutional neural-networks and groundbreaking trainable ML for data classification and much more
  • Unified and automated platform aimed at making SaaS security management effortless and undemanding, thanks to shared risk intelligence across CASB inline, API and SSPM, a unified dashboard with deep visibility into users and privileges, natively unified policy framework, and ML-driven alert prioritization using risk correlation

“Netskope provides a modern approach to SaaS security, including unprecedented capabilities that unite key SSE controls and collation of intelligence,” said John Martin, CPO, Netskope. “Netskope One is the platform that uses AI to keep pace with the SaaS and GenAI app explosion, categorizing new apps and their risks faster, more granularly, and more accurately than any other solution in the market.”
