Easy to set up with good automation and offers good training materials

What is our primary use case?

The solution primarily ensures the security of whoever's infrastructure as it relates to not only email but applications. It allows for the security of managed and unmanaged applications.

Pros and Cons

  • "The automation offered by the product is pretty solid."
  • "The solution is still pretty new to the CASB environment."

What other advice do I have?

We are resellers of the product. The product is a SaaS and therefore is always up-to-date. It uses microservices. We're always dealing with the latest version of the product. It updates itself. Our clients use different deployment models and different clouds for deployment. I'd advise other companies to use the solution, and implement it now rather than later. I'd rate the solution at an eight out of ten. Their ease of use, the training materials that they got, and what the solution actually covers are all very good. That said, they're fairly new into the CASB environment. However, they have…

Good interface with good onboarding and an easy to deploy agent

What is our primary use case?

We have two main use cases. The first one is for APIs only. We have the APIs connected to this console, and they include the API from Facebook Workspaces, and also Google. The other use case is for URL filtering using an agent of Netskope.

Pros and Cons

  • "The interface is good."
  • "In some cases, when you have a lot of policies, it can get confusing for users and you can get lost in the GUI."

What other advice do I have?

We are both a partner and a high-end user. We are always using the latest version of the solution, as it updates automatically. The console is running on a Netskope site. From there, a user can deploy agents to a computer or servers on-prem or on the cloud, however, it's not the console itself. It's the agent's server that is forwarded to the cloud. It's important to look at the solution to see how it will work for your company, A solution might have a good user interface, a beautiful console, and nice graphics, however, you really need to look deeper to see if it fits your organization's…

Provides comprehensive protection of data and files shared between users

What is our primary use case?

We are the distributor for Netskope in Sri Lanka. We have been distributing Netskope for roughly two years. Netskope has multiple products. One is their CASB solution — Cloud Access Security Broker. They even have a Secure Web Gateway Solution as well, which is used for filtering — it's filtering functionality is similar to Cisco Umbrella. Our customers can use it for cloud security. Netskope also has a Secure Access Secure Edge Solution as well. Throughout Sri Lanka, we have distributed Netskope CASB to roughly 8,000 users.

Pros and Cons

  • "Their technical support is very good."
  • "They could improve their mobile agents as they have some limitations."

What other advice do I have?

We highly recommend Netskope CASB because it is very flexible and they provide multiple methods for integration. It's very flexible when it comes to use-cases. Overall, on a scale from one to ten, I would give Netskope CASB a rating of nine.

Responsive support, reliable, and has plenty of features

What is our primary use case?

I have done a couple of implementations from small to large enterprise IT companies.

Pros and Cons

  • "I have found the most useful features to be the Web Secure Gateway, CASB, infrastructural service scanning, and Zero Trust."
  • "There should be some granular custom roles that are not available. However, this is on the road map. There are many devices that do not have the Zero Trust feature and other enhancements available which they should have."

What other advice do I have?

My advice to those wanting to implement the solution is you have to plan it out first. It is always good to know exactly how the solution operates before you are going to implement it. Plan it accordingly, rather than deploying it on all machines. First implement it on every business unit with some test users, test plans, test policies deployed, and test it out. Not all applications are supported by any of the security of the entire solution. Those applications that are not supported you have to bypass them. At this stage, only the deployment has to be done. You have a defined project plan and…

Simple and straightforward interface, helpful technical support

What is our primary use case?

I do not have a great deal of experience with this product, although we are using it for cloud security. Since everybody is adopting cloud technologies such as SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS, they want to ensure that their data is secure. This product can be used to help people access our cloud applications securely, control users, and manage data movement over the cloud with respect to our data classification policies. We have conducted a PoC but have not used it in our production environment.

Pros and Cons

  • "The feature that I like best is the GUI."
  • "Setting up policies is something that we having been doing, and if the vendor were to provide example use cases that included different implementation options then it would be very useful for us."

What other advice do I have?

In summary, this is a good product, we have not found any problems, and I recommend it. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Pros and Cons

  • "It's a comprehensive security portfolio solution."
  • "Compatibility with other proxy polars would be helpful."

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a nine out of 10.

There are lots of different use cases.

Pros and Cons

  • "Technical support is pretty good."
  • "The configuration in the cloud model could be improved upon."

What other advice do I have?

We're just a customer. We don't have a business relationship with the solution. On a scale from one to ten, I would rate the solution at an eight.

Straightforward interface, very good scalability

What is our primary use case?

I'm a solutions architect and we are customers and partners of Netskope.

What is most valuable?

I very much like the interface, it's very straightforward to use. In general, the solution is user friendly.

What needs improvement?

I think the customer support could be improved. I think they're improving but it's not that great yet. I'd like to see more integration included in the solution, maybe like a host-based firewall.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using this solution for nine months. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

In terms of scalability, it's good. Based on their technology, they are able to scale pretty quickly. We have about 100 people using the solution, basically all the staff in the…
