Netskope and Box Make Standardization and Content Security a User-Friendly Experience

Netskope gives IT a way to guide users to Box from unsanctioned apps, prevent data loss in Box across any endpoint, and ensure security for the OneCloud ecosystem

LOS ALTOS, Calif., Aug. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Netskope, the leader in cloud app analytics and policy enforcement, today announced it has partnered with Box to provide enterprises with an efficient way to standardize on Box. The solution enables enterprise IT to discover all of the cloud apps running in their environment and uses automated coaching messages to guide end users to migrate from unsanctioned cloud storage and collaboration apps to Box. The solution also provides content e-discovery and Data Loss Prevention for sensitive content uploaded to or existing in Box. Finally, the solution allows enterprise IT to extend Netskope's real-time, context-aware policy enforcement to the Box app ecosystem, including Jive, Marketo, Yammer, SlideShark and DocuSign.

The partnership enables IT to more effectively address the growing "shadow IT" issue by easily identifying and rooting out the unsanctioned apps that live in a given network and pose additional compliance and security challenges. Once these apps are discovered, Netskope provides IT with end-user coaching capabilities that inform users in real-time if they're using an unsanctioned app that violates policy or doesn't comply with standardization efforts. This helps reduce cost and leads to higher productivity and an overall increase in IT security for enterprises.

The Netskope solution integrates seamlessly with Box so that organizations can effectively manage and protect data whether accessed by PCs, tablets and mobile devices. It's also capable of providing a full inventory of existing content in Box, identifying whether the content is sensitive or confidential, and triggering automatic policies to remediate, quarantine and enforce other real-time activities related to the content—a common feature needed by enterprises with e-Discovery and security requirements.

"We talk to a lot of IT professionals that say 'We're standardizing on Box, but where we really need help is in driving to this objective with our end users'," said Sanjay Beri, chief executive officer and co-founder for Netskope. "Through this partnership, IT can continue to standardize on an industry-leading enterprise content collaboration solutions like Box, and Netskope is there to secure your data and coach users if they decide to go rogue or if they're attempting to put content that doesn't belong there."

"Box is transforming the traditional IT model and empowering employees with the best tools to securely share content and collaborate with partners, customers and peers globally, from any device," said Whitney Bouck,‎GM, Enterprise & SVP, Global Marketing at Box. "We're excited to work with Netskope to extend a suite of features that provide customers with deep security controls and powerful insights around a business's most important asset – its information."
