Cloud security provider Netskope has expanded its NewEdge network to a new data center in Singapore. Serving millions of enterprise users around the world, Netskope NewEdge is a carrier-grade private cloud network that is reserved exclusively for Netskope customers.
The Singapore data center expansion would enhance Netskope’s NewEdge network infrastructure, building on Netskope’s investment in the region to better serve local and multinational customers.
The Netskope NewEdge network delivers inline security services through a “carrier-grade, next-generation” global infrastructure based on advanced application and network optimization technologies and processes.
As a private cloud network, NewEdge optimizes connectivity with its “resilient” global architecture. The network 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 Netskope customers.
Netskope NewEdge network is built by industry veterans. The latest data center addition would bring improved performance for Netskope services in Singapore, as well as surrounding countries across the region including Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Sri Lanka, and Thailand.
“Netskope continues to be a champion for the modern workforce,” said Tony Burnside, Vice President for Netskope Asia Pacific. “With this NewEdge expansion to Singapore, Netskope is enabling organizations to securely scale their businesses without sacrificing speed or performance.”
The NewEdge Network
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’s NewEdge would also work “seamlessly” with a user’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 enable any web-based, SaaS application.
