Understanding API Protection

Netskope API Protection provides out-of-band visibility, policy and controls for managed cloud services (Sanctioned Applications). API Protection connects directly to the cloud service using OAuth tokens and APIs published by the cloud service. API Protection works in conjunction with Netskope Inline Deployment options to provide “Defense-In-Depth” security.


API protection utilizes API integration with Cloud Applications (Sanctioned Apps). Sanctioned applications refer to SaaS application subscriptions maintained by your Enterprise. The following points  are the operating highlights of API protection:

  • Out-of-band deployment model
  • Provides ‘API Protection’ visibility and policy enforcement
  • Leverages public APIs published by the SaaS Provider
