Independent Research Firm Recognizes Netskope as a Leader in Security Service Edge Solutions.

Netskope, a prominent player in the Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) domain, recently earned the title of Leader in the Forrester Wave™ report for Security Service Edge Solutions for the first quarter of 2024. The report by Forrester Research, Inc. assessed 11 significant vendors in the SSE Solutions arena, evaluating them across 25 criteria related to their offerings, strategies, and market presence.

Netskope’s robust SSE capabilities form the backbone of the modern SASE framework, which merges security and networking. The Forrester Wave™ highlighted Netskope as a top choice for enterprises aiming to bolster security for remote workforces and enhance data protection. The company’s SSE solutions were praised for their focus on data protection.

Netskope stood out in the Current Offering category, securing the highest scores in areas like remote workforce security, VPN alternative solutions, broad and rapid network delivery, and comprehensive on-premises and cloud data protection. The company excelled in 12 criteria, notably in Vision and Innovation within the Strategy category.

The evaluation spotlighted Netskope’s One platform, particularly for its effective data loss prevention (DLP) capabilities that safeguard data across endpoints, networks, and cloud environments. The platform is adept at identifying various sensitive document types, from merger and acquisition contracts to personal identification and intellectual property.

Furthermore, the Forrester report emphasized Netskope’s advanced AI and generative AI (genAI) in security, through its NewEdge network. This innovation showcases Netskope’s commitment to a superior technical stack, indicating that organizations with high performance demands or advanced feature needs are likely better served by providers with their own networks.

Sanjay Beri, CEO and co-founder of Netskope, expressed pride in the Forrester recognition, attributing it to their ability to deliver top-tier network and user performance alongside cutting-edge AI-driven security solutions. This acknowledgement reflects the trust and confidence their global clientele, including Fortune 100 companies, place in Netskope for cloud security and networking needs.
