Security Posture Profile

A profile is a set of rules. A profile can be custom-built or for a specific standard such as the CIS Benchmark. An administrator can create a policy on a profile. To access the security posture profiles:

  1. Log in to the Netskope tenant UI.

  2. Navigate to Policies > Security Posture.

    The Security Posture page opens.

  3. Click Profiles & Rules. The Profiles & Rules page displays all the profile names and corresponding rules in the profiles and rules section respectively.

You can perform certain actions by clicking the More Options icon (...) to the right of the profile entry. Depending on whether the profile is predefined or custom, the following options are available:

  • Edit: On selecting this option, you can edit the profile. This option is available for custom profiles only.

  • Clone: On selecting the option, Netskope creates a duplicate copy of the profile.

  • + Create New Profile: On selecting the option, you can create a new custom profile. For more information, see Create a Security Posture Profile.

  • + Create New Policy: On selecting this option, you can create a new policy based on the selected profile. For more information, see Create a Security Posture Policy.

  • Revert: On selecting this option, Netskope rolls back the profile to its last applied change. The newly created profile gets deleted. This option is available if you have not yet applied changes to the newly created profile.

  • Delete: On selecting this option, Netskope deletes the profile. This option is available for custom profiles only.
