Skyhigh Networks sees massive cloud adoption in Australia, New Zealnd

Skyhigh Networks said it has seen growth in the Australian and New Zealand (A/NZ) regions, after opening offices 12 months ago and engaging with over 100 enterprises.

The company enables IT and security teams to successfully manage shadow IT and securely enable sanctioned IT. Skyhigh´s explosive customer traction in A/NZ is in part due to its “partner-first” Go-to-Market strategy and established strategic partnerships with global integrators, “Big Four” accounting and consulting firms and cloud-focused value-added resellers (VARs).

The company´s growth in the region is attributed largely to the massive cloud adoption by Australian and New Zealand enterprises. According to a recent PwC cloud report based on a regional alliance between Skyhigh and PwC, Australia and New Zealand are leaders in cloud adoption globally. The average A/NZ organization uses 670 cloud services. If left ungoverned, cloud adoption presents a significant risk to any enterprise, particularly those companies operating in regulated sectors.

Skyhigh Networks, the cloud security and enablement company, helps enterprises safely adopt cloud services while meeting their security, compliance, and governance requirements. Over 500 enterprises worldwide including Aetna, Comcast, Cisco, DIRECTV, HP, and Western Union use Skyhigh to gain visibility into all cloud services in use and their associated risk; analyze cloud usage to identify security breaches, compromised accounts, and insider threats; and seamlessly enforce security policies with encryption, data loss prevention, contextual access control, and activity monitoring.
