Netskope Client for MacOS Performance Improvement

Significant Netskope Client optimizations are delivered with this release, to use resources more efficiently on macOS platforms. Internal testing in low latency environments (For example, 1Gbps and <=2ms) indicates an increase in peak throughput by 30-50%, when Netskope Client is used to steer traffic to the Netskope Security Cloud. The feature flag enableMacPerformance has to be enabled on the tenant for the Mac Netskope clients to deliver higher performance.

Note

  • A known interop issue with AnyConnect tunnel all mode. If you have AnyConnect running, do not enable the flag.

  • Performance measurement depends on the link speed and essentially the last mile. Any increased latency or packet loss could lead to much different performance results.

  • This feature is in Beta. Contact your Sales Representative or Netskope Support for more information.
