Most of my customers are using Netskope CASB as a cloud DLP only to control applications, such as SharePoint, OneDrive, and Teams. They are using the Zero Trust access feature from Microsoft Azure and Amazon AWS to access their resources.

For now, we are scanning all the HTTP traffic with the cloud-based solution, the cloud broker solution. We are using it as a network proxy. It will detect all the data you are using. Let's say you go to Google Drive to try to upload something. In our case, we are putting up some rules or restrictions so that you can't upload PDFs or Word files, or maybe you can add Word files with limitations, like without any personal information, including name, pin number, date of birth. It's more like we are controlling the PII, the personal information with the solution, so that we restrict users from uploading whatever they want on the internet. The solution itself is good because it categorizes many websites on its own, like the website or solution you trust. For instance, Yahoo is a good website. You can let your employees use Yahoo, but let's say a website like yandex.com is a little bit fishy, so they will put it into a category like server content. We can put in rules according to this. We can only allow the website with Netskope first. We have to pay extra for some of those features, but we can connect our infrastructure like GCB. We can connect our instance via API so that Netskope itself scans whatever in our GCB storage or Azure Block storage. If someone is storing PII information, it can declare some alerts or restrict access to that particular file. It's mostly for this kind of solution, but there are many other things that you can do with the solution. We have more than 30,000 workstations. The client version is 90, but we are using 87. Every three or four months, we do an installation for all the clients and workstations. That's maybe why we are not on the latest client version, but it works fine. There haven't been any problems with that. They launch one new version every month. Normally on your side, you don't need anything. You only need to install the client on your workstation. After that, it's up to you. If you have everything already on cloud, like if you are using Azure AD, you can connect your Azure-ready account with their account for the same purposes and upload all the data of your users so that their solutions know about your environment. If you are not using cloud, you can provide an Excel list of all your users so they can register those users so you aren't paying more than you are consuming. You can install the agents on 1,000 PCs, but they are only working with the users and environment they are deployed on. If I have 500 users and install on 1,000 PCs, I'm only paying for 500 users because now they work from home. Everyone has one Mac, one Windows device, or maybe one Linux device, but they are using the same username with the organization. We are paying the license for one user, even if we are using the client on multiple devices. The working environment is not a big mess. If you're on hybrid or 100% cloud based, or even if you are 100% in-house in your data center, you can go with the solution. There aren't any limitations.

We use Netskope CASB to establish an audit trail of all the accesses to SAS applications, and other applications hosted on our cloud infrastructure. We use it for the identification of shadow IT applications. Additionally, we use Netskope CASB to have the visibility of all the applications hosted on the cloud.

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.

CASB: allows selective cloud service access, e.g., it allows our O365 tenant but prevents upload to other tenants.

We researched Netskope but ultimately chose Zscaler. Netskope is a cloud access security broker that helps identify and manage cloud applications, protecting your sensitive data from exfiltration. It provides visibility of how all SaaS applications are used in your environment. It makes setting up policies easy, and it has special policies to protect integrated apps. It is difficult to scale up. The infrastructure tends to stall when trying to keep pace with high loads. Although it provides basic protection features like the interpretation of firewall logs, it shows the user access to apps. It shows issues comparing the reports with the firewall logs. Overall, it presents a simple approach to web traffic control. Zscaler, on the other hand, is a complete security stack as a service for the cloud. It is designed to reduce the complexity of traditional secure web gateway approaches. It provides scaled protection to users and entities. We use Zscaler and can say we like it very much. It provides secure internet with full encryption. It is easy to use, and you can easily monitor how your users and entities use SaaS applications. It also controls your bandwidth with a load balancer. So if you are looking for smooth internet access and secure connections across devices, it may be just the solution for you. The integration with MS365 is not the easiest, and it slows email uploading and downloading. However, we heard of other users that integrated Zscaler with Azure and were satisfied. We encountered a few issues, but the vendor solved them. There were some false positives and the setup could be easier. If you have a lot of users on mobile, it may not be the best option. Conclusions Zscaler is a superior solution for businesses of all sizes. Although the setup requires some expertise, it still provides a complete solution that offers good value for money.

I have over 20 years of progressive experience in technology.I am looking to compare Netskope CASB and Microsoft Cloud App Security. I am not quite sure which one has the edge. I know Microsoft has made a lot of progress and its features make it very attractive. However, NetSkope seems to have been in the market with more experience and seems a bit pricier?  Has anyone had a good or bad experi...
