The list honors companies disrupting markets commonly dominated by technology giants
LOS ALTOS, Calif. – Aug. 14, 2018 – Netskope, the leader in cloud security, today announced it was recognized by JMP Securities as a 2018 “Super 70” company. The annual list honors the hottest, most strategically positioned private companies in the cybersecurity, data management and communications infrastructure industries. This is the second consecutive year Netskope has made the list.
JMP’s annual list identifies companies with strong business momentum and sustainable technological differentiation. “Today’s technology landscape is marked by legacy companies that have rested on their past successes, but now lack the vision, agility and perseverance to adapt to current market trends. The Super 70 is comprised of companies that are disrupting these titans, better positioned than ever before to dominate global markets in the long term,” write the report’s authors.
“In our cloud-first world, businesses are no longer willing to choose between security and efficiency — and they shouldn’t have to. As a result, enterprises are increasingly looking to best in class cloud native security platforms built from the ground up to secure their SaaS and public cloud and web usage,” said Sanjay Beri, founder and CEO of Netskope. “This recognition is another proof point that Netskope continues to grow and further set itself apart from legacy security companies, cementing its leadership in the rapidly growing cloud security market.”
The win comes on the heels of considerable momentum for Netskope. Last month, the company announced the acquisition of Sift Security, a pioneer in next-generation cloud infrastructure security, to enhance the industry’s most comprehensive security cloud. Netskope is consistently recognized as one of the most innovative and fast-growing cloud security companies in the world, counts 25 percent of the Fortune 100 as customers, and is backed by more than $230M in funding from tier-one, premier enterprise investors.
In addition to being named to JMP Securities’ “Super 70” list, Netskope has recently received recognition from other industry organizations, including:
- Gold recipient in Cloud Security and Silver in Best IT Company of the Year categories of the 2018 Network Products Guide IT World Awards
- Winner of the 2018 Frost & Sullivan Global Cloud Access Security Broker Market Leadership Award
- Named a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Cloud Access Security Brokers
- Named a leader in the IDC MarketScape for Cloud Security Gateways (CSG).
