Review

Netify Review

Netskope are a leader in the Security Service Edge (SSE) market, as such they are a good choice for companies requiring SASE or SSE solutions. Their partnerships with SD WAN vendors such as VMware, Versa Networks and HPE Aruba, amongst others, allow clients with pre-existing solutions from these vendors to augment with Netskope cybersecurity solutions. Further, they also offer strong cloud security options from the Netskope secure cloud. However, they are not a full SD WAN vendor and therefore a full network solution is only available via Netskope partnered vendors. Further, caution may be taken for those requiring managed services and extensive support as Netskope’s support teams have been noted to have long wait times and are often located in different time-zones, meaning that response times are obscure.
