Netskope achieves milestone in global coverage and connectedness with NewEdge Infrastructure

Netskope, a leader in SASE, has announced a major global milestone in the continuing expansion of its NewEdge security private cloud, which is now powered by full-compute data centres in more than 50 regions worldwide.

Every data centre is accessible to every customer without additional fees or surcharges, with all Netskope Security Cloud services available, including cloud firewall, secure web gateway, cloud access security broker, Zero Trust network access and more. The milestone was achieved following another year of rapidly building and scaling-out NewEdge across the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and the Asia-Pacific regions to provide the lowest latency and highest-performing infrastructure backed by unmatched, industry-leading Service Level Agreements.

Netskope will continue its aggressive expansion and commitment to world-class connectivity with additional data centres in Brazil, Taiwan and Saudi Arabia expected to come online in early 2022. The expansion supports Netskope’s mission to deliver on security without the performance trade-offs.

Placing data-centric security as close to the user as possible — with fast on-ramps, efficient traffic processing and optimised access to the applications and content that matter most to enterprises — is a key requirement of a SASE-ready architecture and delivering truly world-class Security Service Edge (SSE) capabilities. Netskope’s ever-expanding global coverage also addresses customers’ unique business requirements and compliance objectives, such as having a data centre in-region for content localisation reasons or to ensure customer’s traffic stays within intent-based zones — for example, to address General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirements in the European Union.

“While some vendors claim large numbers of data centres, many of the dots on the map they call data centres are just front doors to their network or locations they can emulate from far-away data centres. Either way, users suffer by incurring a ‘latency tax’ caused by backhauled traffic. Other vendors inflate their numbers by counting data centres that are off-limits or not accessible to every customer, or by counting one physical street address as multiple data centres for marketing purposes,” said Jason Hofmann, VP of Platform Architecture and Services at Netskope. “With NewEdge, every one of our data centres is the real thing with full compute and all SSE services available. By strategically placing security traffic processing at the edge — now offered in more than 50 regions globally — NewEdge offers equal or better coverage than any other vendor and delivers proven, SLA-backed leadership in performance that is critical to delivering on the SASE vision.”

Netskope integrates with leading networking and SD-WAN vendors so customers can accelerate their security and network transformations through a best-of-breed and tightly-integrated SASE solution. Plus for breakthrough performance, NewEdge includes direct peering with the most commonly used web, cloud, and SaaS providers to maintain the highly connected nature of the Netskope infrastructure.
