Netskope, the leading security cloud, and Mimecast, a leading email security and cyber resilience company, today announced several best-of-breed strategic integrations that are designed to provide customers an enterprise-grade, omnichannel data loss prevention (DLP) solution combined with robust intelligence to protect cloud and web resources and usage, whether direct-to-Internet SaaS, web, or email.
Enterprise businesses are rapidly embracing cloud services as part of inevitable digital transformation. A secure cloud experience requires the extensive capabilities of a Next-Gen Secure Web Gateway (NG-SWG), Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), a Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Data Loss Prevention (DLP), and Secure Email Gateway (SEG) technologies deployed seamlessly and in concert with one another in a cloud-native environment.
Using the integrated offerings of Netskope and Mimecast, customers can:
- Leverage an enterprise-grade, omnichannel DLP solution engineered to fully manage and secure inbound and outbound email, using Netskope inspection and Mimecast analysis, blocking questionable email and sensitive content based on DLP tags
- Use the power of Netskope Cloud Threat Exchange built to discover and enhance risk and prevention postures across both Netskope and Mimecast environments
Netskope provides comprehensive, four-in-one data protection across SaaS, IaaS, web, and email using a single-pass, optimized, SASE-ready architecture, ensuring sensitive data is protected anywhere, all the time. Email DLP, the latest enhancement to the industry-leading Netskope Data Protection portfolio, provides outbound data protection for Microsoft Office 365 and Google Gmail.
This extended data protection complements the email security offered by Mimecast and, when combined with the ability to exchange threat intelligence via Cloud Threat Exchange in real time, further helps to benefit joint customers with a stronger security posture.
“Cloud security, email security, and data protection are top of mind for every enterprise we speak to—and that was before the global pandemic pushed us all to step up our efforts,” said Billy Bond, VP of Business Development and Alliances, Netskope. “This is a game-changing collaboration with Mimecast, a leader in email security. It will allow us to provide even better protection and orders of magnitude more value for our customers.”
“Threat actors are seeking entry into organizations by any means necessary, it’s incumbent on our industry to protect the data and employees of our customers,” said Julian Martin, VP, ecosystem & alliances, Mimecast. “At Mimecast we believe in the ‘power of together’ to help solve complex problems that will help secure our customers. Our latest integration with Netskope underscores this commitment, helping joint customers meet the advanced requirements for seamless cloud security.”
