Better Together: Netskope
+ SD-WAN

By partnering with SD-WAN leaders, Netskope empowers networking teams to deliver a SASE-ready WAN edge, while addressing the critical security requirements of the modern enterprise.

Delivering fast, secure and cost-effective access for HQ, branch and remote users

Netskope’s Next Gen Secure Web Gateway is the perfect complement to any SD-WAN investment, helping customers better secure and protect their web, cloud & SaaS traffic. And Netskope’s approach to SD-WAN provides customers the most flexibility in vendor selection, supports users accessing from anywhere, as well as realize additional network performance and cost savings benefits.

85% of your traffic is in the cloud. Protect it with a Next Generation Secure Web Gateway.

Gone are the days of backhauling traffic to a few enforcement points and relying on costly MPLS WANs, needing to maintain costly and capacity-limited physical appliances, or relying on the unpredictable performance of public clouds for security. With Netskope’s approach, customers avoid getting locked into one vendor’s architecture, but have the choice to make best-of-breed, independent security and networking decisions without trade-offs.

Key Netskope + SD-WAN advantages

01

Works seamlessly with any SD-WAN investment

Netskope works with any SD-WAN using standard GRE or IPSec tunnels to steer traffic to the nearest Netskope data center. With data centers strategically positioned globally, the Netskope security private cloud called NewEdge is where the Netskope Security Cloud services reside. This approach supports SD-WAN devices at the branch, as well as gateways or concentrators deployed in the cloud or enterprise data center.

02

Allows security to follow the user and data anywhere

To address remote workers, Netskope Client leverages the same policies when users are on-premise to extend security beyond the WAN. When remote workers return to the office, Netskope Client detects SD-WAN tunnels to Netskope and automatically disables. If Netskope Client is deployed, but no tunnels are established, traffic steering to Netskope will continue as normal with no impact on the network.

03

Taps automation to make deployment fast and easy

Critical for large-scale SD-WAN deployments, automation accelerates the deployment of Netskope services across hundreds or even thousands of different locations to address HQ, branch and remote users. Scaling is achieved simply by adding more tunnels to handle more users and greater traffic volumes, plus intelligence built into NewEdge ensures services always remain responsive and available.

04

Delivers superior user experience for web, cloud, and SaaS

Regardless of whether users are working remote or their traffic is managed by the SD-WAN, NewEdge optimizes the user on-ramps plus its extensive peering with CDN, cloud and SaaS providers delivers the best roundtrip times for web, cloud and application access. Typically measured as low, single-digit millisecond latency, this results in a vastly improved application experience.

05

Reduces infrastructure costs and simplifies the network

The Netskope approach allows best-of-breed security to be implemented without performance trade-offs or having to re-architect the network. Many customers realize opportunities for infrastructure savings and simplification, for example by eliminating expensive private connections and leveraging the direct peering – for example with Microsoft for Office 365 – available in every NewEdge data center in the world.

By Netskope partnering closely with SD-WAN leaders, enterprises are better positioned to embrace digital transformation to make their networks more efficient and agile, while providing the safest and best application experience for users.
