Netskope expands security cloud services in Singapore data centers
US-based Netskope has announced the expansion of its security cloud services to data centers in Singapore.
As part of the company’s efforts to grow its investments in the region, Netskope’s flagship private security cloud network, Netskope NewEdge, will be available to its customers in Singapore.
This means that some of Netskope’s most well-known clients in Singapore will be able to enjoy a range of cloud-based cybersecurity services. They include Trustwave, the cybersecurity arm of Singapore’s national telecom Singtel.
Tony Burnside, Vice President for Netskope Asia Pacific, comments that the company’s move shows that Netskope is a “champion for the modern workforce”.
“With this NewEdge expansion to Singapore, Netskope is enabling organisations to securely scale their businesses without sacrificing speed or performance,” he added.
Improved performance cloud security services by Netskope NewEdge also means smoother operations for data centers not only in Singapore but also surrounding Southeast Asian countries including Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, and the Philippines.
According to a survey by cybersecurity company Palo Alto Networks Indonesia, Southeast Asian countries are becoming more aware of the importance of cybersecurity and protection from cyber threats.
Surung Sinamo, Country Manager of Palo Alto Networks Indonesia who conducted the report, said that 400 leaders of tech companies from Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, and Singapore are becoming more aware of the importance of preventing and thwarting cyber attacks that can potentially disrupt businesses, as we have seen in the last few years.
