Leading Cloud Access Security Broker Recognized for Excellence in Security and Innovation
Netskope, the leading cloud access security broker, today announced that the Netskope Active Platform has been recognized as a Trust Award finalist in the Best Cloud Computing Security Solution category for the 2016 SC Awards. The finalists and winners for the newly revamped Trust Awards (formerly Reader Trust Awards) are chosen by a distinguished group of leading IT security professionals from the SC Magazine readership and selected by the SC editorial team. Winners will be announced at the SC Awards 2016 ceremony to be held March 1, 2016 in San Francisco.
“From Duqu 2.0 to mobile cyberthreats to the nearly $1 billion stolen from financial institutions by the Carbanak cybercriminal group, 2015 saw near-exponential growth in the number and complexity of cyberattacks,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Magazine. “As the bad guys shift and pivot strategies, so too do the men, women and companies working to stop them in their tracks. These finalist have shown that they are the best at what they do.”
“With cloud security as a top priority for every enterprise, Netskope is committed to delivering the most comprehensive solution that can accomplish more than just the simple discovery of cloud apps and instead mitigate risk, prevent data loss and govern usage in real-time in apps beyond simply ‘allowing’ or ‘blocking’ them,” said Sanjay Beri, co-founder and CEO, Netskope. “This is our number one priority as we continue to innovate and keep our customers’ security needs in mind. It is an honor to receive this recognition, which truly reflects all of the hard work of the employees behind Netskope Active Platform.
The SC Awards, now in its 19th year, are recognized throughout the security industry as the gold standard of excellence in cybersecurity. With the awards, SC Magazine recognizes the achievements of security professionals in the field, the innovations happening in the vendor and service provider communities, and the vigilant work of government, commercial and nonprofit entities. Vendors and service providers which offer a product and/or service for the commercial, government, educational, nonprofit or other industries are eligible for the SC Awards’ Trust Award category.
“Finalists for the Trust Awards are selected by a panel of approximately 100 professionals and the SC Magazine product reviews team,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Magazine. “It’s a high bar to clear and we are proud to acknowledge Netskope as a finalist.”
Winners of the 2016 SC Awards will be announced at a gala dinner and cocktail party on March 1, 2016 in San Francisco.
