Steering Configuration

A Steering Configuration is responsible for directing traffic from end-users to the Netskope Cloud. A Netskope tenant steers thousands of apps by default, but to ensure the correct traffic (cloud apps or all web traffic) is steered, modify the default steering configuration, or create a steering configuration; these configurations can be assigned to groups or Organizational Units (OUs) to allow granular steering within an organization.
