Help the World’s Largest Organizations Take Advantage of Cloud and Web without Sacrificing Security: Netskope


Traditional security products are not well suited to the needs of today’s cloud. As people become increasingly mobile, collaborate more freely, and shift more of their data to the cloud, enterprises need security that governs usage and protects data everywhere. Instead, most IT teams are still struggling with legacy security products that simply can’t contend with this new way people work. These legacy solutions don’t understand cloud transactions, they only offer IT a binary policy choice — allow or block — and that frustrates both IT and users. Finally, these products only cover some workflows, don’t fully protect enterprises from sensitive data loss or exposure, and introduce complexity and cost while failing to secure the enterprise completely.

Headquartered in Los Altos, CA and born in 2012, Netskope is a leader in cloud security. It is the only firm that has built a technology platform capable of realizing this vision. Using patented technology, Netskope’s cloud-scale security platform provides context-aware governance of all cloud usage in the enterprise in real time, whether accessed from the corporate network, remote, or from a mobile device. 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. With granular security policies, the most advanced cloud DLP, and unmatched breadth of workflows, Netskope is trusted by the largest companies in the world. Netskope — security evolved.

Culture is everything

Here are our values:

Collaborative and transparent

We can do nothing without being collaborative and transparent. This means everybody works hard and we work together. It means our corporate leadership is clear, open, honest and our middle managers share what’s happening in the company, and the most junior people have a big impact. That’s what it means to be transparent.

No politics or bureaucracy

There’s no room for politics or bureaucracy at Netskope. Big egos are shown the door. We’re too focused and busy for that kind of nonsense! Nobody’s too senior or important to be held accountable. Everybody rolls up their sleeves, and the best ideas win.

Determined - we make it happen, period

Our goal is to be the leading cloud security platform in the market, and that means we are dogged and determined. Whether we’re dealing with a customer issue, a needed product feature, or a way to enable our best partners, we make it happen. No excuses. It’s in our DNA.

Customers are #1, and we have their back

Did we mention that our customers’ success means more to us than anything else? Technology projects aren’t always easy, and our job is to be in the trenches with our customers. They need to know we have their backs, and we need to earn their trust every day.

Dream big and be innovative

Netskope is solving some of the most advanced information security challenges today, from cloud security to online threats to data governance. We have more than 40 patent claims to our name, with dozens more in process. In order to stay at the top of our game, our only choice is to dream big and innovate every day.

Always have fun

Whether we’re sharing a meal or volunteering alongside our colleagues, we are laughing and having fun. We trust and appreciate each other, and nobody takes themselves too seriously. That’s what makes work fun.

Netskope’s Smart Cloud Security

Netskope’s patented Cloud XD technology eliminates blind spots by going deeper than any other security provider to quickly target and control activities across thousands of cloud services and millions of websites.

Netskope Cloud XD

Patented and built in the cloud, Netskope Cloud XD™ is the brain behind Netskope. Unlike any other technology, Cloud XD understands all inputs (logs, SaaS, IaaS, web) in extreme definition and performs big data analytics on details including user, group, location, device, service, destination, activity, and content in real time. Cloud XD understands users, devices, locations, dates, times, content, and activities such as “share,” “approve,” “edit,” “download,” “send,” “post,” “upload,” and more across any cloud service, service instance, service category, or website.

Award-Winning 360º Data Protection

Netskope’s award-winning 360º data protection guards sensitive data with cloud DLP and encryption across SaaS, IaaS, and web. Built in the cloud, Netskope data protection works regardless of location or device and handles the direct-to-cloud and direct-to-web traffic that others miss. Combined with end-to-end incident management capabilities and automated workflows, sensitive data is protected whether it’s in transit to the cloud or already resident in sanctioned cloud services.

Advanced Threat Protection

Netskope is the only cloud security platform with comprehensive, advanced threat protection across SaaS, IaaS, and the web, combining a unique cloud-native security service with multi-layered threat detection and remediation capabilities. Netskope sees traffic that other security solutions do not, such as traffic to SSL-encrypted websites and cloud services, and provides deep analysis to detect evasive, zero-day threats.

Unified, Cloud-Native Platform

Built from the start in one cloud, Netskope has built a truly unified platform for SaaS, IaaS, and web security, providing visibility, analytics, data protection, threat protection, and more. Unlike other security solutions, Netskope’s unified analytics and policy enforcement can be managed from a single platform, saving security team’s time by avoiding policy conflicts and redundant configuration steps.

Moreover, Netskope Cloud Security is a cloud-native security platform. Using a containerized, microservices-based architecture, the Netskope platform is designed to seamlessly scale individual cloud service components.
