Netskope for Web wins in Cyber Defense Solutions category for helping enterprises streamline their cloud and web security strategies

LOS ALTOS, Calif. August 27, 2018Netskope, the leader in cloud security, today announced that Security Today, a leading industry media brand providing technology, education, and solutions for security professionals, has recognized Netskope for Web as the 2018 New Product of the Year winner in the Cyber Defense Solutions category. Now in its 10th successful year, the Security Today New Product of the Year Award program honors outstanding achievements from security solution vendors whose products are considered to be exemplary in their ability to improve various aspects of the security industry. This year, more than 100 entries were reviewed across 47 product award categories.

Built from the ground up, Netskope for Web enables safe web use for all enterprise users. Powered by the same cloud-native architecture and patented Cloud XD technology of Netskope’s award-winning and market-leading cloud access security broker (CASB), Netskope for Web uniquely comprehends today’s complex and dynamic web transactions. Furthermore, the Netskope “one cloud” approach allows organizations to effectively streamline their cloud and web security strategies through a single architecture, compared to the disparate legacy products available in the market today.

“The languages that power the cloud and web are converging, and as a result, enterprises are increasingly looking to manage SaaS, public cloud and web environments from a single platform,” said Sanjay Beri, CEO, Netskope. “We created Netskope for Web as another module on top of our proven platform to address this dynamic security challenge in ways that other security vendors have failed to. Winning this award serves as a testament to our ability to enable completely safe cloud and web use for every enterprise via the Netskope Security Cloud.”

“This is the 10th year that we have sponsored the New Product of the Year contest, and each year I am amazed at not only the quality of the products but the intuitive nature behind the development of the products,” said Ralph C. Jensen, editor-in-chief and content director of Security Today. “There is real genius behind the products that have been entered, and I’m pleased that we can help bring this new technology to the forefront of the security industry. I am so grateful for the time people put into creating their entries and sharing this information with us, that we can then share with our readership.”

The list of winners will be honored at the Global Security Exchange (GSX) conference on September 25-27, 2018 in Las Vegas, and will also be showcased in the upcoming November/December 2018 issue of Security Today magazine.
