Gartner names Netskope a leader again

Netskope

Gartner recently released the latest version of their Magic Quadrant for Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASBs) and for the second consecutive year Netskope was named as a leader positioned furthest on the “completeness of vision” axis than any of the other 13 vendors evaluated.

We are humbled by the recognition, which we believe validates our leading technology, “one-cloud” architecture, the breadth of our offering, and the long-term vision of our company.

In a short period of time, the cloud has upended the traditional concept of how enterprises protect their data and intellectual property. What was once easily protected behind a perimeter is now much more complex. In today’s world, enterprises need to deploy security technologies that take the cloud and mobile devices into account, that eliminate blind spots by going deeper to quickly find and control activities across cloud services and Web sites that indicate suspicious behavior. In this way, they can continuously protect data and guard against advanced threats.

The Netskope Security Cloud was designed for this very thing and as a result, one of the most comprehensive ways to do this is with our cloud access security broker (CASB) capabilities. CASBs are placed between cloud service consumers and cloud service providers to provide a necessary layer of security and data protection for the organization. Organizations are increasingly turning to CASB vendors to address cloud service risks, enforce security policies, and comply with regulations, even when cloud services are beyond their perimeter and out of their direct control. Some organizations also use CASB to increase their confidence about their organization’s cloud service usage, which is best accomplished by taking a granular approach to policy enforcement and data protection.

If this sounds like a problem your organization is grappling with, I encourage you to download a copy of the report here. And we’d love to talk to you about your cloud security priorities. There’s a lot that goes into a cloud security strategy and we are more than ready to start working on actionable solutions for your enterprise.
