Our world has become fairly riddled with cloud services and technology. It seems like every time you turn around, a new tech or service is being rolled out, expanding our capabilities in the cloud to one degree or another. This trend is only expected to grow in the coming years, with cloud computing geared to be the primary means of doing business both on the internet and in the real world.

With these increases come two extremely important considerations that need to be made. The first is to ensure that activities performed by employees using cloud services are secure. The second is to make sure that everything stays running smoothly and as quickly as possible.

Fortunately, one company in specific has both of these bases completely covered: Netskope.

Founded in 2012 by industry-experts, Sanjay Beri, Lebin Cheng, Ravi Ithal, and Krishna Narayanaswamy. Netskope has received an excess of $56 million in capital from a number of reputable and well-established venture-capital firms. These include Lightspeed Venture Partners and Accel Partners, to name just a few.

Says Sanjay Beri, CEO, Netskope, “Cloud apps are the inevitable future because they let people go fast and work flexibly. Up until now, IT couldn’t embrace cloud apps because they couldn’t see what apps were running, what people were doing in them, or enforce policies. We created Netskope to eliminate the catch-22 between being agile and being secure.

Netskope fulfills these goals using the following methods:

Discovery and Visibility

Knowing which cloud apps and services are being used by your employees is the first step in securing them and making them perform at peak efficiency. Netskope identifies all of these apps and services and then makes them visible to appropriate users. In addition, any activity performed using these identified services, such as downloads or shares, are reported on.

Analytics and Insights

Once identification and revelation of which cloud services and apps are being used, Netskope can then analyze them for any potential problems. These can include anomalies in the used app, potential security breaches and the ability to create watch lists. Netskope can also pivot around individual apps, users, devices and instances quite flexibly, creating a granular level of visibility only seen by using Netskope’s services.

Forensic analysis allows for a complete and detailed audit trail to help get to the root of problems that have already occurred. Netskope also provides the capacity to ask just about any security-related questions, with comprehensive and complete answers always expected.

Conclusion

Finding a balance between security and performance is one of the top goals of just about any IT department in any company. Netskope provides these services at a level not before seen with other, comparable services.
