Deeper integration with Workplace offers comprehensive security and compliance using award-winning Netskope Cloud Security Platform

LONDON, UK — Dec. 5, 2017 — Netskope, the leader in cloud security, today announced a first of its kind native integration with Workplace by Facebook. This deep integration uses Workplace APIs to provide comprehensive security and allows enterprise customers to inspect content and apply policies across Workplace to satisfy their regulatory compliance requirements. The announcement follows the release of the inline version of Netskope for Workplace in April 2017. Netskope for Workplace is the most comprehensive solution available in a cloud access security broker (CASB) platform and the only one available today for every CASB deployment mode.

Netskope for Workplace provides security teams deep insight into and policy-based control over files and data shared in Workplace groups and chats, safeguarding valuable intellectual property, and ensuring regulatory compliance through the award-winning Netskope Cloud DLP and Threat Prevention. As cloud-based collaboration tools like Workplace make work simpler and more efficient, it is crucial that security teams find and secure sensitive content and apply appropriate controls based on their risk and governance policies. With the added support for Workplace, enterprises can depend on Netskope to enforce a single consistent regulatory and compliance policy across all their cloud services.

“Employees across the enterprise are demanding access to collaboration tools like Workplace, but security teams need to ensure that use is compliant with regulations and security policies,” said Sanjay Beri, founder and CEO, Netskope. “Via our partnership with Facebook’s enterprise teams, Netskope was able to leverage APIs to extend our cloud security platform to deliver a unique and first in industry solution for Netskope for Workplace customers. This solution gives enterprise IT peace of mind when it comes to enterprise requirements in e-discovery, regulatory compliance data exfiltration and app activity monitoring. We’re delighted to further our relationship with Facebook to help secure their widely used collaboration platform.”

“Workplace helps change the way people work by connecting entire organisations through tools that are familiar to them,” said Julien Codorniou, VP, Workplace by Facebook. “Security is our top priority. We’re pleased to see how ISV partners like Netskope are ensuring that customers have the most advanced data privacy and protection controls and the flexibility they want when enabling Workplace.”

Netskope for Workplace provides the most comprehensive coverage of any CASB with visibility and protection extended to Workplace use taking place on- or off-network, or when collaborating with suppliers, consultants, or partners that sit beyond their network perimeter. Customers can enable integration via the Netskope app, which is now available in the Facebook Partner Marketplace.
