Netskope Active Cloud DLP Wins 2016 Security Products Magazine New Product of the Year Award

Recognition for industry’s most comprehensive cloud data loss prevention solution demonstrates innovation and leadership in the security industry

Netskope, the leading cloud access security broker (CASB), today announced that Netskope Active Cloud DLP was awarded the 2016 New Product of the Year Award by Security Products Magazine in the Loss Prevention category.

The Security Products New Product of the Year Award honors the outstanding product development achievements of security equipment manufacturers whose products are considered to be particularly noteworthy in their ability to improve security. A record-high number of entries was received in the eighth successful year of the independently juried contest.

“We built Netskope Active Cloud DLP to enable our customers to effectively protect their corporate intellectual property and sensitive data, which are increasingly being stored in cloud services” said Sanjay Beri, founder and CEO, Netskope. “This recognition from Security Products Magazine is strong validation of our innovative technology and further proof that as organizations move more of their business data to the cloud, a comprehensive way to prevent those data from loss is needed.”

Integrated with the Netskope Active Platform, Netskope Active Cloud DLP enables IT to protect against intentional and unintentional data theft and loss across all SaaS, IaaS and PaaS solutions regardless of where the transaction originates from or is destined to (be it a remote mobile device user, external contractor, unsanctioned application, etc.). Netskope uses the most extensive data classification algorithms, heuristics and techniques to isolate sensitive data. Once isolated, the data are coupled with contextual details specific to the transaction, including identity information such as user or group, location, device, browser, and user activity information such as share, upload, download, view, etc.

This enables IT to create policies that precisely identify cloud app usage patterns and protect sensitive data in a targeted way, quickly identify and prevent cloud app policy violations and trends in real-time in an automated manner, and ensure low false positives and the elimination of false negatives. An integrated incident management dashboard enables security analysts to investigate and remediate violations, providing the full set of controls needed to operationalize data security. Netskope Active Cloud DLP has been implemented at scale in the largest enterprises across the world, including leading healthcare, retail, financial services, and high-technology organizations.

“The New Product of the Year contest gives us a terrific sampling of security solutions available now,” said Ralph C. Jensen, editor in chief of Security Products magazine. “Our juried judges do an excellent job of compiling and assigning a score for each entry. I applaud those who entered this year for introducing the best ofthe best security systems. It is always exciting to view the entries and then release information about the winning entries. However, it should be noted that all new products are important and might be able to fit into your security scheme.”

Winners will receive awards and will be recognized at ASIS International 2016 in Orlando, Florida September 12-14. They will also be featured on the security industry-leading website,, and will be highlighted in the December 2016 issue of Security Products magazine.
