Netskope, the SASE leader, today announced its membership in the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA). MISA is an ecosystem of independent software vendors and managed security service providers that have integrated with Microsoft Security to help shared customers better defend themselves against a world of increasing cyber threats.
Netskope helps organizations transform their network and security, with innovative solutions for fast, reliable, and secure access to cloud applications from anywhere in the world. MISA membership adds to the expanding relationship between Netskope and Microsoft, with more integrations and partnership highlights to be announced in the coming months.
“Netskope’s deep understanding of data and help layer protection in Microsoft environments is key to how our integrations deliver value for Microsoft customers. We understand the deep context of what is going on, where it’s going on, and how it’s happening, on-premises or in the cloud,” said Billy Bond, VP of Business Development & Alliances, Netskope. “We are proud to be a part of MISA, which further validates the depth and breadth of our ability to integrate with Microsoft and help protect Microsoft environments.”
Microsoft customers are able to search and find integrated solutions through the MISA partner catalog, making it easier to discover and browse integrations with Netskope.
