AuthProxy Authentication support

With auth proxy endpoint URL configuration on IDP side, endpoint URL is configured to point Netskope auth proxy URL instead of actual ACS URL. As no other changes are done as part of this configuration, the ACS URL can be maliciously modified to default MS URL and bypass Netskope rproxy control.

AuthProxy Authentication for Office Portal now supports optional resigning feature at each IDP with Netskope Tenant certificate, to enforce Netskope security check and prevent MITM attack.

Renamed App Tag Constraint

The App Tag criteria for Real-time Protection was renamed to CCI App Tag. A similar change was made for Skope IT, where the Tag filter was renamed to CCI App Tag.

  • Google Firebase Storage renamed to GCP Storage for Firebase
Renamed Vulnerabilities & Exploits Section

The Vulnerabilities & Exploits section in CCI Application Information page has been enhanced and renamed to Attack Surface Management. It will now highlight results of more than 50 passive vulnerability scans including OWASP Top 10 Vulnerabilities, in addition to information on recent breaches.

Data Protection
ITIN Entity Update

Updated Taxpayer ID Numbers (US; “ITIN”) Entity to support groups from ’50’ to ’65’ based on the current ITIN definition.

DLP Entity Filter tooltips update

Updated UI tooltips for Unlikely Matches and Common-Sense Filters under the Entities tab of DLP.

Medical Conditions Entity

The “Medical Conditions (English)” Entity has been completely overhauled in order to reduce false positives caused by matching medications. For example, “acetaminophen” and “Tylenol” and anatomical references (like, “pulmonary” and “jugular vein”) to improve detection of more natural ways of referring to common ailments.

Remove Medical Rules from PII-type DLP Profiles

In order to better delineate our predefined PHI and PII DLP Profiles, Medical-related Rules (PHI) were removed from the following PII Profiles:

  • US Personally Identifiable Information
  • Australia Personally Identifiable Information
  • Singapore Personally identifiable Information
Updated Driver License Number Terms Entity

Added more plurals terms support for driver licenses (for example, “driver licenses”), as well as specific terms “dls#”, “cdl#”, and “cdls#”.

Predefined Entity Validation

Custom Entities (defined on the Entities page) that reference a single predefined Entity will now inherit the predefined Entity’s default validators and filters.

If the Entity Modifier feature is enabled, you will now also have the option to change or remove the inherited filters that are applied to their new custom Entity. Netskope recommends using the default filters that apply to the predefined entity.

Support For Entity Obfuscation

You can now choose to obfuscate the matched content for custom entities created using the Entities tab in the UI.

The obfuscated content will be stored in the customer managed forensic folder and seen in the “Preview” and “Preview File” sections of an incident in the WebUI. Entity Obfuscation requires the Entity modifier feature to also be enabled on the tenant.

Customers using DPOP will not be able to leverage this functionality since forensics is not available as a feature on DPOP. Additionally, If the appliance is not updated to Release 106 and you select obfuscation for a DLP entity, any DLP scan that includes the profile associated with the mentioned entity will not yield any match results for all the profiles involved in the scan. Please ensure that the appliance version is upgraded to 106 before using this functionality.


This feature is currently in Controlled GA. Contact your Sales Representative or Support to enable this feature.

Endpoint DLP (EDLP)
Alert And Event Rename

Endpoint DLP events and alerts previously used both “MacOS” and “macOS” for the OS field. This has been made consistent and will always report “macOS”.

Endpoint DLP Process Rename

The application name for the Endpoint DLP application is changed to Netskope Endpoint DLP on macOS.

Blocking MTP/PTP Android Devices

Endpoint DLP agent for macOS can now block Android phones in both Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) and Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP) modes.

TLSv1.3 For EPDLP Client

The Endpoint DLP agent now requires TLS1.3 to communicate with datacenter APIs.

Next Generation API Data Protection
Remediation Actions On Incident Page

Classic API Data Protection supports manual remediation. The same support is now extended to Next Generation API Data Protection. An administrator can manually take a remediation action on an incident from the Incidents > DLP page. The available actions are:

  • Change owner to a specific user
  • Restrict access to owner
  • Restrict access to internal collaborators
  • Restrict access to specific domains and internal collaborators
  • Revoke organization-wide sharing
  • Revoke specific domains


You can navigate to the Incidents > DLP page, click an incident, under Actions > API Data Protection (Next Gen), choose the remediation actions.



Some of the actions under this drop-down menu are the same as some of the actions you see on the left hand side of this drop down. For the next few months you will see both these options and can use any one of them. In the long term, the UI will display the Next Generation actions only.

Next Generation SaaS Security Posture Management
Summary of 3rd-Party Connected Apps

Starting this release, Next Generation SSPM shows a summary of 3rd-party connected apps on the Next Generation SSPM Overview page. Connected app is mechanism to link a 3rd-party application to a SaaS application platform using OAuth for authorization. For example Box for Salesforce is a connected app that allows integration between Salesforce and Box.

To view the 3rd-party connected apps, navigate to API-enabled Protection > SECURITY POSTURE (NEXT GEN) > Overview, then view the Applications widget. Clicking the donut chart takes you to the Inventory > Resources page to list the 3rd-party connected apps. To learn more: View Security Posture Overview



This is a beta feature. Though the widget displays 4 risk levels, all 3rd-party connected apps are currently categorized under the Unknown risk level. In a future release, they will be categorized under appropriate risk levels.

Support for Categorization of SSPM Rules & Findings on MITRE ATT&CK for SaaS and Security Domains

Starting this release, Next Generation SSPM now supports categorizing SSPM rules and findings on MITRE ATT&CK for SaaS and security domains.

MITRE ATT&CK (Adversarial Tactics, Techniques, and Common Knowledge) is a globally recognized framework and knowledge base that helps organizations understand and categorize the tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) used by cyber adversaries during various stages of a cyberattack.

In the context of Security Operations (SecOps), there are several well-known domains or categories that are commonly addressed to ensure a comprehensive security posture. These domains cover various aspects of security operations and help organizations in managing and responding to security incidents effectively.

To accommodate these new rules and findings, Next Generation SSPM has introduced new categories under the security posture policy wizard:

  • Domain
  • Netskope Best Practices – These are rules recommended by Netskope for supported SaaS apps.

In addition, you can create a custom rule and include them as part of the above new categories.

To learn more: File Type Detection

Disabled Longest Prefix Match For Custom URL Lookup

We can now disable longest prefix match in NG-SWG when matching incoming URLs against URL lists. As a result, the incoming URL will match against all URL lists with a positive match criteria. This is different from the current behavior of matching with the URL list with the longest prefix match.


Disabling the longest prefix match is a fundamental change in how policy processing happens with NG-SWG. Hence, it is recommended to review the intended behavior of this feature on your policy set thoroughly before enabling this feature.


This feature is currently in Controlled GA. Contact your Sales Representative or Support to enable this feature.

Remote Browser Isolation (RBI)
Extended RBI License


This is a BETA feature. Contact your Sales Engineer to enable this feature in your account.

Extended RBI is an upcoming RBI new licensing, that expands RBI support for new risk scenarios: browsing of unsanctioned cloud apps.

Extended RBI is a new license that expands the RBI offering to cover additional risk scenarios in addition to the current ‘Targeted RBI’ scope: i.e., additional web categories and unsanctioned cloud apps which do not require isolation of all web traffic (full isolation).

Extended RBI will protect the browsing activity and browser for corporate users accessing unsanctioned cloud apps and websites.

To learn more: Extended RBI (BETA DOCUMENTATION)

Time Range Filter Configuration

This fix allows the user to cache time period per SkopeIT page. However, if the default time period is not altered, then the time period will follow the external time period as the user traverses the SkopeIT pages.

Traffic Steering
Feature Flag Value Update

Updated the default value for the enableAOACSupport feature flag from disabled to enabled. No impact for the existing tenants with the feature flag enabled.

Deprecated Features
API Data Protection
Remove Forensic Option From Instance Setup Page For OneDrive

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.

    To learn more: Deprecation Notice for OneDrive as a Forensic Destination.

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. To learn more: Forensics.

App Connectors
Deprecated Google Plus/Google Currents Connector

Deprecating support for Google Plus (Google Currents) app connector as the corresponding app has been deprecated by Google. To learn more: Learn about the switch from Google Currents to spaces in Google Chat
