Expert Line broadens its security services portfolio, integrating the Netskope platform, and enabling the sharing of telemetry data and cyber intelligence
PARIS, France, September 12, 2023 – French cyber security company Expert Line has announced the launch of its Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) managed services offering X-SASE, based upon the Netskope platform.
As a framework for converging networks and security, SASE helps teams safeguard data, provide fast and reliable access to networks and applications, and realise better efficiency and return-on-investment by addressing both network and security challenges through a unified architecture. SASE includes Security Service Edge (SSE) and Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) technologies.
Part of Netskope’s SASE platform, Netskope Intelligent SSE enables secure enterprise digital transformation and secure work-from-anywhere connectivity using integrated Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Secure Web Gateway (SWG), and Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) capabilities, with Remote Browser Isolation (RBI) and Cloud Firewall included. Netskope’s architecture is powered by the NewEdge network—a security private cloud designed from the ground up to deliver security without performance trade-offs—for fast and secure access from any location to data, applications, and websites wherever they reside.
Expert Line’s managed integration of the Netskope platform with its other best-in-class partner technologies has enabled the digital systems integrator to build an orchestrator capable of collecting and analysing data from multiple corporate information systems (IS), as well as automating remediation. Expert Line’s X-SASE technology is also agnostic so it can also integrate with other existing components within the customer’s security stack.
Expert Line X-SASE is available as a fully-managed or co-managed solution, depending on customer needs. Centred around investigation, remediation, monitoring, detection and analysis, X-SASE offers businesses a number of advantages for improving their cyber security posture:
- Validate web access compliance – Monitor, correlate and prioritise alerts using automation and analysis.
- Control the migration of data and applications to SaaS – Comprehensive analysis and detailed response plan, with remote response actions via cross-sharing of data and threat telemetry.
- Secure data and applications – Discover complex targeted threats using detection models provided by Netskope’s Threat Intelligence.
“Based on our collaboration with Netskope and the growing number of customers looking to deploy a managed SASE solution, we naturally decided to work together to develop X-SASE as a turnkey solution for businesses,” says Michael Berdugo, CEO of Expert Line. “Our solution, developed exclusively with Netskope, is aimed specifically at small and medium-sized organisations that lack in-house cyber resources, but still want to benefit from cutting-edge protection. It also enables us to continue fulfilling our mission of being a trusted third party that supports tomorrow’s businesses in their efforts to achieve cyber resilience.”
Stan Nabet, Regional Sales Director at Netskope, comments, “In a world where users are no longer tied to the office, and data no longer lives safely within a private data centre, network and security transformation is essential to ensure security, data protection and an optimised user experience. We are focused on helping organisations accelerate digital transformation, to safely enable new data innovations such as Generative AI, while maintaining performance and productivity. We’re delighted with our collaboration with Expert Line, whose teams are an extension of those of our experts, in order to support companies in their secure digitisation projects.”
