Cloud Security Leader Netskope Expands IaaS Security Capabilities to GCP
February 28, 2019
Cloud security leader Netskope has expanded its Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) security capabilities to Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and builds on its security capabilities for Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Azure. Netskope, which has headquarters in Santa Clara, California, United States, was established in 2012. The company’s suite of services “help the world’s largest organizations take full advantage of the cloud and web without sacrificing security”. Its proprietary ‘Cloud XD’ technology offers ‘smart cloud security’ - a more robust level of security than offered by other solutions which eliminates advanced security threats.
Built on the Netskope Security Cloud, ‘Netskope for Google Cloud Platform’ is “part of a holistic cloud security solution that takes a one cloud approach to provide visibility, control and protection for SaaS, IaaS, and web”. In an environment where companies are “unable to continuously monitor their IaaS environments”, the solution facilitates cloud adoption enterprises that require secure multi-cloud environments by providing “continuous security assessment and monitoring capabilities for Google Cloud Platform (GCP)”. The solution sits alongside Netskope’s cloud data loss prevention (DLP) offering and its threat protection solution for “sanctioned and unsanctioned IaaS”.
“Increased adoption of cloud, hybrid- and multi-cloud strategies in the enterprise is changing the way people work today, while also giving cyber attackers new entry points into a company’s corporate environment,” explained Netskope’s CEO and founder, Sanjay Beri. “Managing risk associated with data loss and cyber threats in the cloud should be a shared responsibility between the cloud provider and adopters of infrastructure. By providing our customers with robust protection across their public cloud environments, they gain the security needed to keep their most sensitive data safe while allowing them to experience the benefits that cloud computing offers.”
