LOS ALTOS, Calif., June 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Netskope, the leader in cloud security, today announced that Netskope Cloud DLP (integrated with the Netskope Active Platform) was recognized by a panel representing the audience of SC Media, as the winner in the Threat Solutions: Best Data Leakage Prevention (DLP) Solution category of the Excellence Awards. The announcement was made Tuesday, June 6 at the awards presentation held in Old Billingsgate, London.
Each year, hundreds of products are entered in the Excellence Awards Threat Solutions categories. Each product is judged by a panel representing a cross-section of SC Media readership, which is comprised of large, medium and small enterprises from all major vertical markets including financial services, healthcare, government, retail, education and other sectors. Entrants are narrowed down to a select group of finalists before undergoing a rigorous final judging process to determine the winner in each category.
Integrated with the Netskope Active Platform, Netskope Cloud DLP has been implemented at scale across many of the largest organizations in the world, including the leading healthcare, retail, financial services, energy, manufacturing 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 the company'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 By decoding not just the published APIs of sanctioned cloud services, but also the thousands of unpublished APIs in sanctioned and unsanctioned services, the patented Netskope Context Engine enables enterprises to detect and control sensitive or regulated content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.
"Security breaches that compromise an organization's data and ruin reputations are causing ever increasing headaches for companies around the world. It is important to recognize the legions of IT security personnel who carry out sterling work in protecting our data," said SC Magazine UK Editor in Chief Tony Morbin. "Netskope Cloud DLP is one of the most original and efficient security technologies on the market today, as it incorporates proximity analysis using predefined or custom proximity templates, and categorizes the severity of a violation based on number of occurrences, is critical to making deterministic detections and enables IT to focus on curtailing the most critical violations first. Netskope was named an SC Award winner for its efforts to raise the bar for the security industry."
"We built Netskope Cloud DLP to enable our customers to effectively protect their corporate intellectual property and sensitive data, which is increasingly finding its way into cloud services, whether sanctioned or unsanctioned" said Sanjay Beri, founder and CEO, Netskope. "This recognition from SC Media validates our industry-leading technology and is proof that as organizations move more of their business data to the cloud, a comprehensive way to prevent that data from loss is needed."

Using patented technology, Netskope's cloud-scale security platform provides context-aware governance of all cloud usage in the enterprise in real-time, whether accessed from the corporate network, remote, or from a mobile device.
