Netskope Adds Application Control to Firewall as a SASE Service

Cloud Firewall, the firewall-as-a-service component of the Netskopes Secure Access Service Edge Platform, has been updated with Application Control giving users greater oversight, according to SDxCentral. Explaining the upgrade, Naveen Palavalli, vice president of GTM product strategy at Netskope, said the additions are an improvement over the old port and protocol-based security rules. The upgrade provides users with a unified method to leverage Web Proxy, Cloud Access Security Broker, and Cloud Firewall to protect all inbound and outbound traffic, according to Palavalli. In response to the recent increase in domain name system attacks, Netskope’s firewall service is now able to host new DNS security features, marking a departure from legacy security tools that rely on technologies based on whitelists or signatures. If you then look at what’s really going on in the threat landscape, attackers realize that DNS is a soft underbelly, Pavalli noted. Pavalli added that the company is increasing its efforts in using artificial intelligence and machine learning methods to predict how cybercriminals use domain generation algorithms in their DNS-based attacks.
