Cyway, a provider of identity-centric and cloud security solutions has announced that it has signed a distribution agreement with Netskope, thus expanding its footprint in the Middle East and Africa region. Netskope Security Cloud provides visibility and real-time data and threat protection when accessing cloud services, websites, and private apps from anywhere, on any device.
Koshy Oommen, Director of Operations at Cyway, commented, “Security technologies are gaining immense popularity as remote working is set as a new norm. Cloud-native applications require different rules and techniques for protection. Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) technology will take preference eliminating traditional perimeter appliance security and legacy solutions. Cyway looks at this partnership as an excellent opportunity to address cloud security transformational challenges from today’s dissolving perimeter.”
Arie de Groot, the Senior Director of Channels EMEA at Netskope, explained that Netskope is rapidly expanding its worldwide customer base. “Security is moving to the cloud. The complexity of perimeter security, the increase of cloud usage, and the ever-growing number of remote and mobile workers are the main drivers of our growth. The cloud cannot be secured with legacy network security methods. It requires a cloud-based platform hosted in a worldwide private network of data centres, always offering the fastest connections. With the opening of our data centre in the Middle East and our cooperation with Cyway, we see a tremendous opportunity to build a network of partners embracing our next generation solutions and to become the leading SASE provider in the Middle East.”
