The presentation

Shadow IT is on the rise. Users are going rogue. Scary? Maybe. But what is the real face of Shadow IT? And should you suss it out so you can block it, or is there another approach? Hear from Netskope VP Product Management Rajneesh Chopra about how organizations are starting to think about Shadow IT and learn best practices from Netskope customers about how to eliminate the catch-22 between enabling cloud apps and protecting the business.

3 key takeaways

  3. Build the expertise and right tools to manage the “Cloud First” apps
