Agreement with Ingram Micro will help accelerate the explosive growth of Netskope across the region
Mexico City, MEXICO – May 16, 2023 – Netskope, a leader in Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) has just announced a new strategic LATAM-wide distribution agreement with Ingram Micro, one of the largest distributors of technology and supply chain services in Latin America. The distribution agreement will help accelerate Netskope’s explosive growth in the region and enhance its ability to deliver best-in-class Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) cloud security, including Borderless SD-WAN solutions.
Ingram Micro will support Netskope across all countries in Latin America – bolstering its offering to its local partner ecosystem and supporting local organizations’ digital transformation journeys. The partnership also provides partners with a distribution option that comprises both financial services programs and technical professional services resources, enabling even more partners to sell Netskope.
As cloud adoption accelerates, creating an increasingly complex security landscape, businesses and governments are being forced to rethink their security strategies, and many are adopting a SASE approach to protect data everywhere it goes—without network performance trade-offs. Netskope offers SASE as a single, converged platform, using one policy framework and one console to simplify technology operations, preserve network performance, and provide more visibility to security and networking teams. The Netskope SASE platform combines industry-leading Security Service Edge (SSE) and SD-WAN—both of which are crucial to providing optimized access and zero trust security for SASE architecture.
Michael Herman, Vice President EMEA and LATAM Alliances & Channel at Netskope commented: “After considering a number of distribution and go-to-market options in Latin America, Ingram Micro was the obvious choice because of the team’s impressive reach and deep expertise in technology, cloud solutions, and supply chain services. Ingram Micro also brings the innovative financing and consumption models that customers and partners expect from a next generation security partnership today. We’re confident that this relationship will help accelerate Netskope’s growth across the region and look forward to working closely with the Ingram Micro team.”
Luis Ferez, Senior Vice President, Global Group President at Ingram Micro commented: “We are very happy to work with Netskope and add its market leading SASE platform to our partner offering. Latin American businesses are increasingly operating in the cloud, and security solutions that protect data at every step of its journey without hindering performance are an exciting prospect. For this reason, Netskope’s platform perfectly complements our strategic direction in Latin America as demand for SASE and Zero Trust solutions grows in the region.”
Netskope serves more than 2,000 customers worldwide, including major government agencies and more than 25 of the Fortune 100. Across LATAM, Netskope’s technology is used by four of the top five regional telcos, 12 of the largest regional financial institutions, four of the largest retailers and two of the largest airlines.
Last year, Netskope completed two key acquisitions, Wootcloud and Infiot, to further its capabilities in enterprise IoT and SD-WAN and expand its industry-leading SASE platform. The demand for Netskope’s products and services is expected to continue to grow as more organizations embrace SASE as the way to manage their business and deliver digital experiences to customers and employees.
Netskope also continues to expand coverage of its NewEdge Security Private Cloud across the world, with data centers now live in Bogota, Colombia; Santiago, Chile; Lima, Peru; Buenos Aires, Argentina and São Paulo, Brasilia and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Localization Zones in Bolivia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Panama and Uruguay provide additional local IP access. As the world’s largest, highest-performing security private cloud, NewEdge offers carrier-grade connectivity and real-time, inline security services, allowing security to be deployed at the edge everywhere and every time it is needed.
