Netskope unifies enterprise cloud and web security
|Christian Hargrave in Security Thursday, April 5, 2018|
Cloud and web security platform expansion by Netskope has been announced to be generally available. Netskope Cloud Security's cloud architecture is a unified platform that allows users to manage both SaaS and Iaas.
Enterprises are faced with the daunting challenge of seamlessly securing critical data traversing the network to access software-as-a-service (SaaS) apps, infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), and the web from any endpoint. Although web security vendors have attempted to address this problem by packaging and moving their legacy solutions to the cloud, this approach does not address security challenges created by the use of SaaS and IaaS or the way the dynamic web is built today. This leads to an incomplete contextual understanding of the overall enterprise security posture, resulting in multiple weaknesses in network defenses. The Netskope Cloud Security platform looks to address this need through one unified cloud architecture with a broad range of cloud-native services, including cloud data loss prevention (DLP) and threat protection, to deliver best-of-breed cloud and web security, simplifying the deployment and management of the enterprise security stack.
“The web is no longer static, but is rather a composite of dynamically generated pages that use the same underlying language that powers the rapidly growing cloud, making a unified platform for managing SaaS, IaaS and web essential to the modern enterprise,” said Sanjay Beri, founder and CEO at Netskope. “We’ve harnessed our expertise and deep roots in cloud security to develop a platform capable of securing both the cloud and web the way it should be done. Through Netskope Cloud XD, we can now provide customers with true 360-degree threat and data protection across all of their environments from one cloud.”
The enterprise network has evolved dramatically since legacy web security tools were first designed and built. In contrast to past hub-and-spoke network architectures, where offices were interconnected over costly, dedicated links and remote users accessed centralized resources over a virtual private network (VPN), organizations today want to enable their users to go directly to the cloud and web wherever they are.
Additionally, legacy web security solutions are typically delivered as physical appliances or are limited by fixed compute, storage and I/O resources. This has meant that security teams needed to carefully size their web security solutions, monitor their performance, and periodically refresh their infrastructure to avoid performance problems.
Born in the cloud, the Netskope Cloud Security platform secures distributed enterprise in a single unified platform while scaling to support additional users and new security services. This allows Netskope to deliver a range of services - including TLS decryption and advanced threat and data protection - at cloud-scale with no impact to the end user experience. Furthermore, Netskope supports cloud-only, on-premises, or hybrid deployments all delivered from one cloud. Customers can deploy with designs that support the deployment methods that fit their needs, rather than deploy under vendor-imposed constraints.
