LOS ALTOS, Calif., Feb. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Netskope, the leader in cloud security, today announced that Netskope Cloud DLP has been named the overall winner in the Cybersecurity Product, Data Leakage Prevention category of the 2017 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards. Winners were selected based on the strength of their submissions and through popular votes by members of the information security community.
The Cybersecurity Excellence Award is a prestigious award that honors individuals, products and companies that demonstrate excellence, innovation and leadership in information security. This independent awards program is produced in cooperation with the Information Security Community on LinkedIn, tapping into the experience of more than 300,000 cybersecurity professionals to recognize the world's best cybersecurity products, individuals and organizations.
Integrated with the Netskope Active Platform, Netskope Cloud DLP has been implemented at scale across many of the largest organizations in the world, including leading healthcare, retail, financial services and technology-focused businesses. More than three quarters of these customers have taken advantage of the company's flexible, all-mode cloud access security broker (CASB) architecture in conjunction with Netskope's market-leading Cloud DLP when deploying Netskope. By decoding not just the published APIs of sanctioned cloud services, but also the thousands of unpublished APIs in sanctioned and unsanctioned services, the patented Netskope Context Engine enables enterprises to detect and control sensitive or regulated content both at rest in cloud services and in real-time en route to or from any cloud service, including across entire service categories and unsanctioned or shadow services. This enables Netskope to enforce cloud DLP policies on more cloud services than any other vendor in the CASB market.
"With over 450 entries, the 2017 awards were highly competitive. All winners and finalists reflect the very best in leadership, excellence and innovation in today's cybersecurity industry," said Holger Schulze, founder of the 350,000 member Information Security Community on LinkedIn which organizes the awards program. "Netskope Cloud DLP proved to be the strongest and most robust solution, and we congratulate them on winning the award in the data leakage prevention category."

"Our aim with Netskope Cloud DLP has always been to provide the most advanced DLP for the cloud.
