Netskope, a Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) provider, was recently recognized by IDC MarketScape as a Leader in its Worldwide NESaaS 2023 Vendor Assessment and Zero Trust Network Access 2023 Vendor Assessment.
“Our thorough assessment of Netskope’s strategy and capabilities led us to recognize the company as a Leader in both the NESaaS and ZTNA reports,” says Chris Rodriguez, the IDC research director of trusted network access and protection.
Netskope has been acknowledged for its SSE and SASE platform, which includes Intelligent Security Service Edge (SSE) and Borderless SD-WAN technologies, as well as its cloud architecture known as Netskope NewEdge.
“Netskope’s deep level of expertise in CASB inline and API protection is a key differentiator for organizations that are concerned about the risks represented by managed and unmanaged SaaS applications,” continues Rodriguez. “And for organizations that prioritize data protection and cloud capabilities, Netskope is a natural shortlist option.“
Netskope recently won the Best Cloud Security Solution award at the 2023 SC Europe Awards and has introduced ZTNA Next to help organizations with VPN replacement initiatives.
