Netskope
Feb. 9, 2017 Los Altos, Calif.

Netskope, the leader in cloud security, today announced that it has partnered with Viptela, the software-defined WAN company, to address today’s enterprise cloud connectivity and security challenges. This integration enables joint customers to marry the benefits of a unified WAN for on-premises and cloud applications provided by Viptela with the robust security assurances of Netskope’s CASB solution.

New applications and cloud service models are shifting traffic patterns within the enterprise. Today, the majority of traffic flows to public cloud services and the Internet. This creates security challenges since traditional perimeter security solutions provide limited visibility into cloud threats.

Viptela’s technologies for virtualizing the WAN allow enterprises to modernize and optimize their infrastructure for agility and high performance, while the Netskope cloud security platform provides customers safely enabled direct internet access from the branch without sacrificing their security.

The Viptela Secure Extensible Network (SEN) dramatically decreases WAN infrastructure costs and application performance issues, helping make it the largest deployed SD-WAN solution among Fortune-1000 enterprises. Viptela SEN provides the following advantages:

  • Reduces deployment times for new applications by 75 percent
  • Boosts application performance by 2x to 5x
  • Cuts WAN operational costs by 50 percent in typical deployments

The Netskope cloud-scale security platform uses patented technology to provide context-aware governance of all cloud usage in the enterprise in real time, whether accessed from the corporate network, remotely, or even from a mobile app or sync client. This means that security professionals can understand risky activities, protect sensitive data, stop online threats, and respond to incidents in a way that fits how people work today.

“We are excited to partner with Viptela to enable Fortune 500 customers to enable new network and security architectures that enable secure access to cloud services,” said Amol Kabe, VP Emerging Products, Netskope. “Netskope is about allowing the enterprise to safely enable their users to work no matter where they are. Security that follows the user and protects the enterprises’ most critical assets whether on premises or off premises is now possible.”

“We are pleased to be partnering with Netskope and providing Viptela customers with a valuable additional layer of security for cloud application and Internet usage,” said Paul Kohler, Director of Technical Alliances for Viptela. “The Viptela SD-WAN platform enables enterprises to achieve the same response time and user experience for cloud applications as they enjoy for on-premises IT resources. This partnership also allows them to benefit from Netskope cloud-scale security on Viptela WANs.”
