72 regions now powered by NewEdge full compute data centers, including in St. Louis, expanding a major Netskope business hub for central United States
ST. LOUIS – January 17, 2024 – Netskope, a leader in secure access service edge (SASE), today announced the continued expansion of its NewEdge security private cloud, debuting a strategic data center in St. Louis, Missouri. As the critical infrastructure powering Netskope’s converged SASE platform, NewEdge delivers advanced security capabilities as physically close to the end user as possible, thanks to blazing fast on-ramps, efficient traffic processing, and optimized access to critical business applications and content.
The onboarding of the new St. Louis data center caps a year of record achievements for Netskope. The company in 2023 became the first industry vendor able to deliver Security Service Edge (SSE) globally with a seamless, localized experience thanks to a NewEdge footprint that now includes 205 Localization Zones —which deliver the same digital experience for customers as going direct-to-net, regardless of where they are accessing from — and full compute data centers in 72 regions. Overall, NewEdge offers global network coverage unmatched by any other SSE vendor, and a localized experience for over 220 countries and territories, including every non-embargoed United Nations member state.
“Thanks to the power of NewEdge and our SASE platform, Netskope customers don’t need to worry about trade-offs among security, user experience, and business productivity. No other SASE vendor today can promise such performance and reliability with the security—and SLAs—to match,” said Joe DePalo, Chief Platform Officer, Netskope. “We’re very excited to open our newest data center in St. Louis and to provide customers with the phenomenal experience they deserve.”
Similar to how the world’s largest cloud hyperscalers deploy new infrastructure, Netskope’s Platform Engineering team quickly scales out NewEdge for greater coverage, capacity, and resilience. Continued NewEdge expansion is expected in 2024, including new data centers in regions such as Portugal and the Czech Republic. Every Netskope NewEdge data center has full compute for security traffic processing and offers all SSE services including cloud firewall, secure web gateway, cloud access security broker, and zero trust network access.
Today’s announcement also marks the continued expansion of Netskope’s corporate presence in the greater St. Louis area, where the company’s local headquarters, in Clayton, Missouri, serves as Netskope’s primary hub for the central United States. Netskope and many of its senior executives are proudly active in St. Louis’ vibrant technology and cybersecurity community, including longstanding partnerships with business leaders such as World Wide Technology and working relationships with the area’s top colleges and universities.
