Securing ChatGPT and other generative AI applications

Netskope has introduced a comprehensive data protection solution to help enterprises securely manage employee use of ChatGPT and other generative AI applications, such as Google Bard and Jasper.

  • 11 months ago Posted in

As part of its award-winning Intelligent Security Service Edge (SSE) platform and decade-long commitment to data security innovation, Netskope today can successfully enable safe usage of generative AI thanks to unique, patented data protection techniques not found in other SSE platforms.

 

Following incidents in 2023 of sensitive data exposure from generative AI, many enterprises are now prioritising if and how to safely enable the use of these applications and support AI innovation without putting their businesses at risk. Currently:

About 10% of enterprise organisations are actively blocking ChatGPT use by teams

ChatGPT adoption is growing exponentially in enterprises, currently at a rate of 25% month over month

Approximately 1 out of 100 enterprise employees actively uses ChatGPT daily, with each user submitting, on average, 8 prompts per day

 

To address this challenge, Netskope Intelligent SSE combines longstanding, industry-recognised Netskope data protection features with newly released innovations specifically for classifying and dynamically controlling safe usage of generative AI applications. These are available to Netskope customers today as a unified solution offering from Netskope and its network of channel partners. (Click to get started right away: http://netskope.com/chatgpt)

 

“Enterprises today are faced with deciding whether to block access to ChatGPT and other generative AI apps to reduce security risk, or allow usage and reap the efficiencies and other benefits these apps can bring about. The safe enablement of these apps is ultimately an advanced data protection challenge—one Netskope is uniquely positioned to solve,” said Krishna Narayanaswamy, Netskope Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer. “Netskope helps all organisations encourage the responsible use of these increasingly popular applications using the right data protection controls in place that help keep the business safe and productive.”

 

As part of Intelligent SSE, Netskope Zero Trust Engine capabilities for the safe enablement of generative AI applications include:

Advanced Application Access Control

The ability to monitor, allow, or block enterprise sensitive data (such as source code) from being posted to AI chatbots 

Visual coaching messages to alert users in real-time on potential data exposure and other risks every time generative AI applications are accessed— promoting responsible use of generative AI applications and training employees in real time, without stopping harmless queries
