Netskope enhances cloud network

Netskope, the provider of cloud security, has announced Netskope NewEdge, the globally distributed network infrastructure that enables the Netskope cloud-native security platform to deliver real-time security without the traditional availability and performance trade-offs, the company said.

Now, Netskope customers can unlock enhanced enterprise productivity while enabling advanced security functionality due to lower latency.

Enterprises are ill-equipped to effectively secure the cloud and web and struggle to understand performance bottlenecks and sources of latency, as they cannot recruit and staff teams with the requisite carrier networking expertise. Netskope NewEdge interconnects users, cloud services, commercial providers and carriers, using performance- and availability-optimized routing to provide higher performance and a secure, undisrupted experience.

Netskope NewEdge mitigates the shortcomings and limitations of using the Internet to deliver inline security, providing a distributed, carrier-grade, next-generation global infrastructure based on advanced network, content and application optimization technologies and processes. This enhances the overall user experience and reduces delay and disruption, while enabling customers with optimized performance and maximized security.

To support the roll-out of Netskope NewEdge, in 2019 Netskope will deploy more than 50 points of presence (POPs) supporting hundreds of millions of concurrent connections, with a total throughput capability of 100 terabits-per-second (Tbps). Spread across the globe, these POPs will enable a fast and reliable user experience with a distributed, carrier-grade, global network infrastructure architected by a world-class platform engineering team, enabling Netskope customers with optimized performance and maximized security.

The Netskope security cloud provides unrivaled visibility and real-time data and threat protection when accessing cloud services, websites, and private apps from anywhere, on any device. Only Netskope understands the cloud and delivers data-centric security from one of the world´s largest and fastest security networks, empowering the largest organizations in the world with the right balance of protection and speed they need to enable business velocity and secure their digital transformation journey.
