SASE company Netskope announced the next addition to its family of single-vendor SASE offerings, which are focused specifically on midmarket organizations and the MSPs that serve them. The ongoing expansion of Netskope’s SASE portfolio allows it and its partners to deliver single-vendor SASE capabilities tailored to various customer sizes and technology environments. This includes midmarket and large businesses that require advanced SASE capabilities.
Despite being smaller, midmarket organizations are facing many of the same hybrid work connectivity and cybersecurity challenges as their larger enterprise counterparts. As a result, these organizations have had to similarly deploy and manage a broad range of security and networking tools, leading to unnecessary complexity and ballooning maintenance costs, overwhelming their smaller IT teams and budgets.
The new Netskope SASE for midmarket solution delivers the same security capabilities as previously released Netskope enterprise SASE offerings, in an easy-to-manage, midmarket-ready package that also includes:
- Enterprise-grade threat and data protection capabilities delivered ready-to-use, out-of-the-box.
- Simplified deployment and administration of networking and security policies through a unified management console and unified SASE client.
- Context-aware Netskope Borderless SD-WAN, with global network coverage provided by Netskope NewEdge.
Further recognizing that many midmarket organizations prefer to outsource the administration of their networking and security, Netskope has designed this latest SASE offering with its leading MSP partners in mind. Critical platform functionalities like multi-tenancy support have been put in place to make it easy for MSPs to deploy and manage Netskope SASE at scale for multiple customers.
“Netskope continues to disrupt the status quo by providing more companies the right balance of performance and security—all the benefits of single-vendor SASE, at the right level for their size and needs,” said Dave Rogers, SVP, Global Alliances and Channel Sales, Netskope. “Today’s release is an ideal SASE solution for midmarket enterprises that are ready to consolidate their hardware, optimize performance, and won’t settle for mediocre security.”
Netskope now offers a more complete range of single-vendor SASE options that align to the requirements of different business sizes, from midmarket to the largest enterprises looking to consolidate multi-vendor environments without skimping on advanced networking and security features. Netskope also continues to strengthen and expand its MSP partnerships worldwide, including BT, Deloitte, Orange, Telefonica, Telstra, Wipro and more.
“As our Fortune 5000 customers continue building upon their digital transformation initiatives, many are considering or actively adopting SASE as a critical convergence of cloud-delivered networking and security capabilities,” said Siva VRS, VP & Global Head Cloud and Infrastructure Security, Wipro. “We are excited to continue working together with Netskope to deliver the right levels of SASE solution to a range of business types and sizes.”
The new Netskope SASE for midmarket solution is now generally available.
