The cable is just sleeved, and they are not designed to work outside due to the jacket not being UV protected. You will require exterior grade ethernet cabling or conduit if you want to run it outside for any kind of permanent application.

I mean you COULD use it outside, but it wouldn't last very long.

if you are really determined to do this i would get some kind of water-proof tape such as duct tape or the best option, FLEX TAPE
