We are proud to share that Netskope Threat Protection has received the 2021 On-Demand Malware Detection certification from prestigious SE Labs for a third consecutive year. Specifically, Netskope performed 100% threat detection on both known malware samples and unknown malware samples during tests conducted in December 2021, with a 0% false-positive rate.
SE Labs is well known for credible, real-world testing scenarios, with reporting based on the MITRE ATT&CK framework to help organizations identify which products and services are right for their teams. The samples provided to test Netskope solutions are detailed in SE Labs’ testing methodology.
The global pandemic has further accelerated several trends that were already underway for enterprise technology teams, and as a result, more organizations are shifting toward Security Service Edge (SSE) and a SASE architecture. Businesses and governments urgently need reliable threat protection as part of that architecture, especially as the rate of malware delivered by cloud applications continues to grow,
As a platform capability in the Netskope Security Cloud, Netskope Threat Protection decodes and inspects traffic that other security solutions may not, such as unmanaged cloud services, sync clients, mobile apps, and TLS-encrypted cloud services and websites, to identify and address threats and data theft. Netskope Threat Labs keeps the security community updated and protected from the latest malware and attacks using Netskope’s Threat Protection technologies.
Netskope has been consistently recognized by leading analyst firms throughout the world for its strengths in SSE and SASE. Among other recent highlights:
- Netskope was named by Gartner as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Access Security Brokers (CASB) for the fourth year in a row, and a Visionary in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Secure Web Gateways in Netskope’s first year of inclusion
- Netskope was named by Gartner as the 2021 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for both CASB and SWG, including scoring highest among all SWG vendors (4.7/5 based on 49 reviews as of April 2021) as the highest-rated Customers’ Choice vendor
- Netskope was named the leader in the 2021 IDC MarketScape for Cloud Security Gateways, which recognizes top Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) solutions
