Rapidly Growing Cloud Security Company Continues To Attract, Grow, Retain Cybersecurity Professionals In Talent-Rich Region
SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 31, 2022 – Netskope, the leader in Security Service Edge (SSE) and Zero Trust, today announced the grand opening of a new office located in Clayton, Missouri, part of the greater St. Louis metropolitan area. The new location was selected based on the St. Louis region’s talent-rich technology environment, and will serve as Netskope’s primary hub in the central United States.
Netskope executives including Chief Information Security Officer Lamont Orange and Chief Strategy Officer Jason Clark will lead the company’s expansion. Both reside in the St. Louis area and have long-standing local business and community ties.
“From our strong partnership with global technology leader World Wide Technology to our working relationships with the area’s top universities such as Washington University, Maryville University, Missouri University of Science and Technology, selecting St. Louis as the next location for our strategic expansion just makes sense,” said Lamont Orange, Chief Information Security Officer, Netskope. “The plethora of local technology and cybersecurity talent resources in Clayton and the Greater St. Louis area is undeniable, and we are very excited to expand our role in the local community.”
“We are delighted that Netskope has chosen to make Clayton their home in the St. Louis region,” said Clayton Mayor Michelle Harris. “From their offices in the heart of Clayton’s bustling downtown, they will provide a key strategic security partner for the education and business community alike. Clayton is proud to welcome them.”

“Building upon our corporate philosophy of extending flexibility to our global workforce, which includes the option of working from anywhere, we’ve found that many of our employees prefer the choice of a hybrid work experience,” said Marilyn Miller, Chief People Officer, Netskope. “Our new St. Louis area office provides our local team with the best range of options possible, and we look forward to expanding our presence in the region and wherever top talent resides.”
