Netskope™ Discovery


Discover apps and assess risk

Netskope Discovery helps you find and quantify risk for all of the cloud apps in your environment, sanctioned or shadow IT. This gives you a leg up in deciding which apps are appropriate for your business, figuring out which to promote to your organization, and approving user-requested apps.




Find all cloud apps

Netskope Discovery shows you all of the cloud apps running in your environment and categorizes them by function and enterprise-readiness. With Netskope Discovery, you can confidently answer question like “How are we using the cloud?” and “What is our cloud risk?”, and get an accurate view of the current state before developing your cloud strategy or policy.


Quantify your risk

Netskope Discovery enables you to quantify your organization’s risk based on the apps you’re using and how you’re using them. It shows you all of your key risk metrics at a glance, including risky apps and users. From there, you can drill down into apps, users, data movements, and app details, and understand the components that make up your risk score.


Don't research apps

Use Netskope Discovery to understand how apps stack up against criteria such as software and data center certifications, security and audit features, business continuity capabilities, and legal terms that make an app enterprise-ready… or not. Adjust scoring weights of those criteria per your requirements or mitigating controls, and incorporate scores into your policies. For example, only allow uploads to enterprise-ready apps.


Know your spend

Understand how much money is being spent on the sanctioned apps you know about as well as the unsanctioned apps that your users have signed up for without your knowledge. Quickly identify overlapping license usage, or apps with redundant functionality, and gain an upper hand on reducing costs.
