Cloud - Malware and Threat Protection
Find and remediate malware and cloud threats.

The convenience and flexibility of the cloud is great for employee productivity, but also brings with it new ways for malware and threats such as viruses, advanced persistent threats (APTs), spyware, worms, ransomware, and more to propagate. And with most traffic from cloud apps being SSL-encrypted, malware can easily hide. Real-time identification and remediation of these threats is key to securing corporate assets and keeping employees productive. Netskope offers advanced threat protection capabilities built for the cloud. *According to a 2015 ESG research report on threat intelligence, 72% of enterprises will increase spending on threat intelligence programs in the next 12-18 months.

Protect your employees from cloud malware and cloud threats

Threat protection is one of the pillars of a CASB solution, and Gartner says that it should be an integral CASB capability. From insider threats and compromised accounts, to malware and bots, today organizations today are faced with more threats from the cloud than ever, according to the latest Netskope Cloud Report, which describes the cloud malware attack fan-out effect.

The ease at which cloud sync and share capabilities can spread malware and threats means organizations need to ensure early and accurate detection and remediation. Traditional network perimeter security aren’t effective when dealing with the cloud – especially without capabilities to address malware, unauthorized access, exfiltration of data, and anomalies in general – since those solutions lack comprehensive visibility of cloud traffic.

Cloud-consuming organizations require a threat remediation solution that addresses:

  Data breaches with encryption, security policies and access controls
  Sensitive data loss using cloud DLP
  Account hijacking/compromised credentials, phishing, and fraud
  Vendor assurance/insecure apps (insecure APIs, infrastructure and services, software vulnerabilities)
  Malicious insiders/privileged user threats


Key cloud malware and web threat protection requirements for organizations are:

  Detect and remediate malware such as viruses, APT, spyware, worms, ransomware, and more in sanctioned apps, en route to and from any app
  Utilize machine learning-based, multi-dimensional anomaly detection that can adapt to users’ changing habits and deal with missing data
  Integrate with existing threat infrastructure such as custom threat feeds, incident response systems, and EDRs
  Consolidate all threat intelligence into single pane of glass
  Find, categorize, and assess the risk of discovered cloud apps
  Understand discovered apps’ enterprise-readiness based on an objective yardstick, and drill down to understand why they are or aren’t enterprise-ready
  Understand activity-level usage within those apps and detect non-compliant behavior and anomalies
  Ensure compliant usage by governing access to cloud storage apps based on context (user identity, device, location, etc.) and risk level
  Detect and enforce policies on sensitive content en route to or from (or at rest in) cloud apps, such as block upload, restrict sharing permissions, remove, encrypt, quarantine, or move to “legal hold” for review by a legal or regulatory party
