Policy Evaluation: Alert & Continue

With this release, the Alert & Continue evaluation feature is enabled by default for all tenants. This feature makes it possible to configure Real-time Protection policies with DLP profiles and select a Continue policy evaluation after match option to continue policy evaluation even after a policy match. This feature enables the Netskope Cloud to continue evaluating Real-time Protection policies for additional DLP violations, instead of terminating and exiting policy evaluation after a match.

In order to use the Continue policy evaluation after match option, a Real-time Protection policy must have one or more DLP profiles with one or more actions set to Alert. For policies using this feature, any DLP profile matches with actions other than Alert will result in the termination of policy processing.

Also, given the possibility of multiple DLP profile matches occurring across policies when using this feature, any incidents generated will list all the matched DLP profiles and related policies. In addition, a single policy alert will continue to be generated, however, it’ll also list all the policies that matched.

Email DLP
Custom MSA Support

For Email DLP, you now can configure generic email server types or mail submission agents (MSA’s), such as an on-prem server like Microsoft Exchange. To configure a generic email server, you can add and verify a new MSA in the SMTP settings as well as create Email Outbound policies for it.

To learn more: Configure Netskope SMTP Proxy with a Custom MSA.


This is a Controlled General Availability (formerly known as Limited Availability) feature. Contact your Netskope sales representative or support to enable this on your tenant.

Tag Support For Private App Groups

Platform Services
Role Based Access Control v2 (RBACv2)

Role Based Access Control v2 (RBACv2) allows large distributed enterprises to operationalize the administration of Netskope security services with regional or divisional delegation for the Netskope service and implementation to scale.

RBACv2 allows administrators access into different functional areas depending on their role and scope. For example, Firewall (FW) versus Secure Web Gateway (SWG) versus Netskope Private Access (NPA), versus API Protection.

Large enterprise customers have cross functional security and compliance teams that manage different aspects of security functionality. Administration and segregation of duties can be broken down into the following functional access areas:

  • Administrator
  • Policy Group
  • Access Control
  • DLP
  • Threat Protection
  • Behavioral Analytics
  • Risk Insights


This is a Controlled General Availability (formerly known as Limited Availability) feature. Contact your Netskope sales representative or support to enable this on your tenant.

Remote Browser Isolation (RBI)
Newly Observed Domain (NOD) In Targeted RBI

Netskope Targeted RBI has expanded the list of supported categories to include Newly Observed Domain (NOD). Targeted RBI customers will be able to leverage RBI for safely expanding web access to Domains observed as active in the last 30 days. These domains are potentially malicious, as bad actors use them for malicious activities such as malware hosting and phishing.

NOD has been added to the list of recommended categories in RBI real-time protection policies. It is now available by default in any RBI policy created leveraging the RBI policy creation wizard. You can edit existing RBI policies to add NOD to your isolation real time protection policies.

RBI Template Name Validation

Netskope RBI enhances RBI template names. Template names are only allowed if the RBI template is not attached to any existing RBI policy.

Prior to this change, you could change the name of an RBI template which was currently assigned to an existing Real Time Protection policy, and the template name was not being updated in the RTP policy.

RBI Template

Netskope enhances the creation of RBI templates from the Real Time Protection policy edition page. This allows you to create a new RBI template inside the policy edition page and attach it directly to the policy.

In an RBI policy you can select + Create RBI Template from the dropdown menu. After creating it is available in RBI template list which can be attached to RBI policy. This limits user interaction while browsing a web page in isolation.


Prior to this change, you could create a new RBI template in an Isolate policy by selecting + Create RBI Template from the dropdown menu. However, it was not possible to attach it to the policy until the changes were applied to the RBI template.

File Upload And File Download Controls

Netskope modifies the list of controls in the RBI template creation to remove File upload and File Download from the list. These controls are now disabled and not editable.

Skope IT
Other Categories Filter

Users can now filter using, ‘Other Categories’, from Skope IT > Events > Page Events.

Threat Protection
Malicious URLs in Threat User Interfaces

Malicious URLs are now modified from their original forms in the Netskope UI to prevent inadvertent user detonation.

Enhanced Netskope Client Access Method Detection
