Telefónica Tech, Telefónica’s digital business unit, and Netskope, the enabler in Security Service Edge (SSE) and zero trust, has announced an agreement for the commercialization by Telefonica Tech of Netskope’s complete portfolio of products and services in the European Union, United Kingdom, Latin America and the United States.
The alliance aims to support public sector organizations, as well as large and mid-sized businesses, in their digital transformation processes. Netskope’s security capabilities will be integrated into Telefónica Tech’s Security Edge service, which offers end-to-end security and management, delivered from Telefónica Tech’s global network of operations centers (SOCs), supported by experts with the highest certifications in Netskope technologies.
The incorporation of Netskope into Telefónica Tech’s Security Edge service will enable Telefónica Tech to offer customers a more complete offering to secure the cloud and the workplace of the future. The Netskope Security Cloud places security within the cloud and so is able to secure enterprise data wherever it ventures; in the cloud, on the web; supporting workers on any device, and in any location; using both corporate and unsanctioned applications. Combining SDWAN with Security Edge services enables Telefónica Tech customers to benefit from a simple and fast converged SASE service.
“This agreement perfectly fits into Telefónica Tech’s strategy of consolidating cloud environments and cybersecurity,” said Francisco Ginel, Global Service Integrators Channel Director for Southern Europe at Netskope. “Netskope is leading the market in innovations around a Security Services Edge, and our Security Cloud delivers security services meant to protect users, applications, and data wherever they are. Our security portfolio acquires an extraordinary value when combined with the experience, management and operation capabilities of a partner such as Telefónica Tech.”
“This alliance will help establish Telefónica Tech as a leader in SSE solutions and managed services in its markets. Netskope’s vision of Zero Trust application access control and data protection provides customers with advanced protection that natively adapts to new digital work models and the consumption of corporate applications in hybrid environments,” said Alberto Sempere, Director of Cybersecurity Products & Technology at Telefónica Tech.
