SSE in Device Intelligence

SSE in Device Intelligence

You can now configure SSE Integration in Device Intelligence and share device detail data from Device Intelligence to SSE. This feature allows you to use device details captured by Device Intelligence in SSE. 

Netskope Security Service Edge (SSE) is a data-centric, cloud-native, and fast security solution. This feature enables you to create granular level policies with device context and device risk in Netskope SSE. The integration ensures that Device Intelligence integrates with SSE as a platform so the policy enforcement will be a common point of enforcement facilitated. 

To do so, you need to follow a few steps:

  1. Configure SSE in Device Intelligence
  2. SSE use cases
  3. SSE UI
This is a special feature and you should have a license for Netskope Device Intelligence and SSE products. Contact your marketing executive or Netskope support team to enable this for you.
