Security cloud vendor Netskope as expanded its NewEdge network to a new data centre in Singapore.
The expansion of the Singapore data centre enhances the NewEdge infrastructure, building on Netskope's investment in the region to better serve local and multinational customers. The Netskope NewEdge is a carrier-grade private cloud network that is reserved exclusively for Netskope customers.
In a press statement, Netskope said organisations are balancing balance between a remote or hybrid-office workforce and are relying on cloud-based solutions to seamlessly bridge the gap from office to home for their employees. With 20% of the company's users moving sensitive data among multiple cloud apps and services, Netskope said businesses must continue to prioritise security during this era of rapid digital transformation.
NewEdge delivers inline security services through a carrier-grade, next-generation global infrastructure based on advanced application and network optimisation technologies and processes. As a private cloud network, NewEdge will optimise connectivity with its resilient global architecture, which is directly peered with major providers, mitigating the challenge of the public internet.
This enhances the overall user experience, said Netskope, resulting in a “better web, cloud, and private application performance”, adding that the data centre brings improved performance for Netskope services in Singapore, as well as countries across the region including Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand and Sri Lanka.
