Network and security VAD Exclusive Networks had become value-added distributor for safe cloud enablement vendor Netskope. As organisations plunge headlong into largely unsanctioned use of hundreds of cloud applications without any means of identifying or controlling the secure and compliant treatment of data, only Netskope provides customers with safe cloud enablement for any app, on any device, from anywhere, in real-time. Exclusive Networks will work with Netskope International, covering Africa (through its office in Morocco), Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Middle East (through its Dubai office), the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the United Kingdom, and has its sights set on an intensive campaign of partner recruitment among application-savvy security resellers. With CASB (Cloud Access Security Broker) identified as Gartner's #1 technology for IT security in 2014, and high-profile security breaches increasingly pointing the finger at unwitting misuse of cloud apps, Netskope's expansion into the international market appears to be pushing at an open door of enterprise demand. This is borne out in recent Netskope/Ponemon Research, with 64% of IT pros at European businesses stating that the use of cloud services and apps reduces their ability to protect confidential information.
