Discern for Netskope

Discern Security AI Controls Assessment and Policy Management

About the Integration

Leveraging Netskope’s capabilities allows organizations to assess their security stance through various perspectives. Discern Cloud enhances protection by implementing a two-tier security framework within SASE, EDR, and additional security mechanisms. Information collected from the SASE and EDR levels facilitates the refinement of specific entities through policy enforcement, thereby mitigating the business’s risk exposure. Implementing detailed policy controls helps minimize operational interruptions, ensuring business continuity.

Discern-Netskope integration would help customers with
