One of the biggest nightmares faced by IT managers is the security and regulatory liabilities they face in the unknown number of cloud applications brought inside the corporate firewall by "Shadow IT."
That's the dilemma several security specialists from leading networking firms, including Palo Alto Networks, Juniper, McAfee and Cisco, decided to address when they formed Netskope in 2012. Netskope can help CIOs get a handle on Shadow IT by bringing visibility to the prodigious number of apps brought into businesses without IT oversight, and introducing good governance to application management.
