Recognition for industry’s first on-premises cloud access security broker demonstrates innovation and leadership in the security industry
Netskope, the leading cloud access security broker, today announced that Security Products Magazine has awarded Netskope Secure Cloud™ the 2015 New Product of the Year Award in the Hardware/Tools category.
Now in its seventh year, the Security Products New Product of the Year award was created to recognize the manufacturers of security equipment that launch excellent products that make a significant impact on organizational security. Along with winners in other categories, Netskope will be honored at ASIS International 2015 in Anaheim, California, September 28-30. Netskope Secure Cloud will also be highlighted in the December 2015 issue of Security Products Magazine.
Netskope Secure Cloud is designed for customers in industries and geographies that have observed the same uptake of cloud services as other industries, yet require tighter reins over sensitive data. This need can be driven by privacy rules or pending legislation such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), industry standards like the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI/DSS), or regulations like the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
Where this comes into play in controlling cloud apps is when enterprises examine security metadata collected from cloud app usage in order to achieve compliance. Netskope Secure Cloud provides these highly regulated organizations with a viable option for safe cloud enablement without sacrificing the advanced capabilities of Netskope’s flagship cloud offering, the Netskope Active Platform™, which has garnered numerous industry awards, analyst recognition, and is considered the cloud access security broker (CASB) of choice used by many large financial institutions worldwide.
“Increasingly, more of the organizations we speak to in sectors from financial services to insurance and government require an on-premises solution to comply with regulations and keep a tighter hold on sensitive business data,” said Sanjay Beri, co-founder and CEO, Netskope. “This recognition from Security Products magazine is further validation that we have built the best CASB in the market today, continue to set the pace for safely enabling the use of cloud services across all mid- to large-sized enterprises worldwide, and offer the widest set of deployment options — from cloud to hybrid to on-premises.”
