Netskope was specifically recognized for its unique approach to cloud app security enables its channel partners to effectively navigate the evolving security landscape without stunting customer workforces.

Netskope’s Active Platform is the industry’s only platform that provides context-aware cloud data loss prevention (DLP), encryption, and anomaly detection in real-time for any cloud app. Netskope’s unmatched insights help enterprises uncover sanctioned and unsanctioned cloud app usage and enforce policies that protect sensitive information and prevent data loss.
