Is there the possibility of integrating IRM with Netskope and being able to restrict what types of documents can be sent through WhatsApp according to their label?


I saw in the official documentation that Netskope supports the following cloud apps with MIP:

Box, OneDrive, SharePoint, Google Drive.


Thanks in advance for your help in this matter.

Hi @corantoba,


the integration you’re referencing there is for our API Data Protection. We’d look at files in the SaaS apps listed and based on context you could apply, change, remove an MIP classification and associated IRM policy. 

for real-time protection, you can technically control what label document can be uploaded to WhatsApp chat but it’s important to remember this is for the web app, most people use WhatsApp on their phone and that app can only be bypassed or blocked last time I checked. Hope that helps a little though.

Hi @rmanley, thanks for your answer. In case you have the phone client installed. Is it possible to control the documents too?
