SECURITY -- CLOUD AND APPLICATION
NETSKOPE ACTIVE THREAT PROTECTION
With Active Threat Protection, cloud access security broker Netskope has developed a threat protection solution that supports a "holistic approach that includes people, process and technology," said JD Sherry, vice president of cloud security and strategy at Denver-based Optiv. The product provides customers with a comprehensive view of how their cloud apps are being used, ultimately enabling detection, analysis and remediation of threats in real time. The proliferation of unsanctioned cloud apps "has forced IT to fly blind" in setting proactive security policies, Sherry said. "It's important for organizations to have visibility into the business' cloud app usage data, and technologies like Netskope help address that need."
