Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps Plugin for Log Shipper

This document explains how to configure the Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps integration with the Log Shipper module of the Netskope Cloud Exchange platform. This integration allows for forwarding Netskope generated events to Microsoft Cloud App Security for additional analysis and reporting.

  • A Netskope Tenant (or multiple, for example, production and development/test instances).

  • A Netskope Cloud Exchange tenant with the Log Shipper module already configured.

  • A Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps instance.

Note

Verify your Microsoft Defender instance permissions are secure and not set up for open public access. Only allow access to your cloud storage instance from your Cloud Exchange Host and any other addresses that need access.

  2. Configure the Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps plugin.
