Deprecation Notice for OneDrive as a Forensic Destination

Deprecation Notice for OneDrive as a Forensic Destination

This deprecation notice for customers who are using OneDrive as a forensic destination. If you have any queries, contact your Netskope customer success manager or support@netskope.com.

Summary of Change

Microsoft Terms of Service (ToS) no longer allows Netskope to offer OneDrive app as a data store for forensic. Due to this change, new customers, cannot use OneDrive as a forensic destination. Customers who are already using OneDrive as a forensics destination can continue to store their forensics data in OneDrive until further notice.

Fine Prints

Based on Microsoft’s latest Terms of Service, Netskope can no longer support OneDrive as a forensic destination. Due to this, Netskope will not support this feature in any new commercial or federal Netskope DC. Fine prints:

  • For existing customers who are using OneDrive as a forensic destination, the feature will continue to work as expected.
  • For new customers, the instance setup UI for OneDrive will no longer have the forensic checkbox. New forensic OneDrive instances cannot be enabled.
  • For existing customers who have not enabled OneDrive as a forensic destination, cannot enable it going forward.
  • Existing customers using OneDrive as a forensic destination, can disable the forensic checkbox from the UI. However, once disabled, you cannot re-enable it.

General Recommendation

As an alternative, Netskope recommends to use a public cloud storage (like Azure Blob, AWS S3, or GCP Cloud Storage) as a forensic destination over a SaaS storage app. For more information, see Forensics.
