Cloud services provider Netskope, serving millions of enterprise users around the world, has expanded its ‘NewEdge’ network in Chennai, Delhi, and Mumbai. The expansion of the India data centers would enhance the Netskope NewEdge network infrastructure, demonstrating an increased investment in the region in response to strong demand.

India represents one of the largest markets in terms of users and the amount of traffic handled by Netskope’s NewEdge network. This network expansion would translate into improved performance for Netskope services, low single-digit millisecond latency, and improved uptake for both local, India-based companies as well as multinational firms with teams in India.

“Having multiple data centers in India is a key NewEdge differentiator,” said Joe DePalo, Senior VP of Platform Engineering at Netskope. “Cloud security providers without diverse, in-region coverage will often require users to traverse thousands of miles, incurring a significant latency tax, to reach the next closest data center which can make services delivered outside of India unusable. With NewEdge, we eliminate that concern for our customers.”

As a private cloud network, NewEdge would optimize connectivity with its resilient global architecture. This is directly peered with major providers, mitigating the challenge of the public Internet. This would enhance the overall user experience, resulting in a better web, cloud, and private application performance for most Netskope customers.

The Netskope Security Cloud, delivered on NewEdge, provides visibility and real-time data and threat protection for cloud services, websites, and private apps accessed from anywhere, on any device.

To accelerate deployment and simplify administration for network teams, Netskope supports flexible options for steering traffic to the NewEdge network. This includes Netskope’s lightweight client for managed devices or a traditional proxy auto-config (PAC) file-based approach.

Netskope NewEdge would also work seamlessly with a customer’s’ existing router, firewall and proxy investments utilizing IPSec/GRE tunnels or proxy chaining, as well as plug-and-play integrations with SD-WAN solutions. To extend security and data protection to unmanaged users and devices, Netskope would also support an extensive set of clientless options to support any web-based, SaaS application.
