Netskope and VMware Collaborate to Simplify Enablement and Security of Remote-First Workforces
Friday, May 29, 2020

Solution provides enterprises with end-to-end protection for all cloud, web, and private application use across endpoints

SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Netskope, the leading security cloud, today announced a collaboration with VMware, creating a best-of-breed technology suite aimed at addressing the challenges of securely enabling the remote-first workforce. For the first time in the industry, enterprises can get enhanced management and protection of the endpoint, data and threat protection of cloud, web, and private applications, and high performance software-defined WAN access in one simple, comprehensive solution.

Digital transformation is a top business priority for many reasons, one being that digitally empowered employees consider themselves to be two to five times(i) more productive than individuals who work in a traditional workspace. Cloud and mobility are key enabling technologies, but the diversity of devices and cloud applications makes providing the right access and security very challenging. For IT and security teams, the complexity is so great that nearly half of CIOs(ii) see it as a hindrance to getting the expected benefits. Layering on the sudden increase in remote working(iii) and the fact that nearly half of threats to data and users are cloud-based(iv) and it is understandable that IT and security teams are struggling to support employees. This is forcing a reevaluation of security and digital strategies by many CISOs and a call for simplicity(v) from their technology solution providers. To address these needs, organizations must govern the endpoint, and provide inline data and threat protection for cloud, web, and private applications.

The collaboration between Netskope and VMware targets these challenges by providing customers with the following:

    --  By sharing customer-specific threat indicators between Netskope and
        VMware Carbon Black, newly discovered threats can be quickly identified
        and neutralized across the organization. As new threats are discovered
        in the cloud, Netskope can coordinate with VMware Carbon Black to
        rapidly remediate at the endpoint. Finally, Netskope is able to classify
        devices using multiple characteristics and increase or decrease access
        privileges based on any characteristic. For example, if VMware Carbon
        Black is not found on the endpoint, Netskope would classify the device
        as such and restrict risky activities.
    --  Netskope and VMware Workspace ONE work together to get full visibility
        and governance over the use of devices and the cloud. Security teams can
        automatically deploy the Netskope client onto Workspace ONE-managed
        devices for governance of cloud services on that device. Additionally,
        admins can set specific access controls or security policies based on
        whether a device is managed or unmanaged, with coverage for all access
        methods including native mobile apps and sync clients. Finally, VMware
        Workspace ONE can leverage Netskope discoveries to drive manual or
        automated workflows to re-establish acceptable use from managed devices.
    --  Netskope and VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud deliver an uncompromising and
        more secure access service edge optimized for applications that require
        security --when accessed from a campus, branch office or when employees
        are working remotely. Whether it is the cloud, web, or use of private
        applications, Netskope and VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud improve the
        end-to-end network performance for real-time applications including VoIP
        and Collaboration, and acceleration for WAN-challenged legacy
        applications within the premises, and more secure zero-trust remote
        access to private applications like local GitHub repositories.

"We're pleased to announce this very timely and important collaboration with VMware for the remote-first workforce," said Sanjay Beri, CEO of Netskope. "VMware has a long history of delivering best-of-breed solutions and together, with Netskope, customers will now get workforce enablement and security solutions anywhere they are in the world, regardless of device, cloud, web, or private application."

"The shift to a largely-remote workforce has put a burden on organizations and employees, who are determining the optimal way to work while staying more secure," Patrick Morley, general manager and senior vice president, Security Business Unit, VMware. "One such consideration is how to extend IT and security best practices outside of the traditional office. Our collaboration with Netskope simplifies how organizations can more securely and effectively run their business and do their jobs from anywhere, whether in the cloud, on the web, or on personal devices."

Netskope is the only company in the market that has addressed shifting demands by combining next-generation SWG capabilities, the world's leading CASB, zero trust secure access, and advanced machine learning to detect unauthorized data exfiltration and advanced threat protection.
