Netskope, the leader in cloud security, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Netskope to its 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors of 2018 list for the third consecutive year. This annual accolade showcases the industry’s most innovative cloud technology companies across five categories, including infrastructure, platforms and development, security, storage, and software.

The award recognizes the company’s comprehensive cloud-scale security platform that provides context-aware, real-time governance of all cloud usage within the enterprise. Recognized by CRN’s Security 100 List and Product of the Year Award, the Netskope cloud security platform delivers the market’s most comprehensive and efficient security solution, allowing enterprises to understand and take action against risky activities, data, and behavior – evolving security for the way people work.

The Netskope Channel Partner Program supplies partners with a unique opportunity to drive growth and profitability for their companies. The program is designed to reward and support Netskope partners, offering them the ability to maximize revenue and provide their customers with a platform to address their cloud security needs.

The 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors are selected by the CRN editorial team for their creativity and innovation in product development, the quality of their services and partner programs, and their demonstrated ability to help customers benefit from the ease of use, flexibility, scalability and budgetary savings that cloud computing offers.

In addition to recognizing cloud technology suppliers for outstanding products and services, 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors serves as a valuable guide for solution providers trying to navigate the cloud market. The list aids prospective channel partners in identifying the vendors that can best help them improve or expand their cloud services.

“The cloud makes employees more productive, but also provides a rapidly expanding surface area for risk, sensitive data exposure and emerging threats such as malware and ransomware,” said Sanjay Beri, founder and CEO, Netskope. “At Netskope, we are committed to empowering our customers with the best cloud security in the market, and this recognition from CRN is a testament to the tireless work our team has done to make our goal come to fruition.”
